At SAP, we have the goal of meeting the needs of everyone. When outlining what needed to be done to achieve this goal, we looked into our end users’ industry, geography, and line of business…just to name a few. However, we knew this wasn’t far enough. To truly meet the requirements of every end user, we had to ensure that our product designs went beyond just business needs.
In 2002, SAP introduced the SAP Accessibility Standard. This standard defined the requirements and processes necessary to create SAP products that were accessible to everyone.
But, accessibility goes beyond lines of code. In order to make software for everyone, SAP, and specifically SAP Design, has made it a focus of our design teams to understand accessibility issues, effectively communicate the benefits accessible solutions to our customers and partners, and to provide education on how to implement accessible solutions within the boarder SAP Community.
At SAP, we strive to ensure that accessible solutions aren’t just created by SAP, but by the broader SAP Development Community as well. If accessibility concerns are a priority for your organization, please look at the content below created by the accessibility specialists at SAP Design.
