Topic Overview:

Topic 1: Afresh Landing Experience For Midmarket (The New Way of Work)

The landing page is your navigation hub as well as a content hub for your daily work. You can now find the desired information and the tasks right after your logon.

Description We’ve constantly heard from customers and partners that it is challenging to locate the tiles on their home page for navigation purposes. And they seldom use the contents in the tile for information purposes because of the outdated numbers and the possible limitations of the tile container. That is why we try to build a solution to address your actual needs and:

  • Let you get your needed information from whatever detailed level you need directly on the landing page, and provide limited in-context actions per technical possibility
  • Allow you to perform tasks that are not relevant to any “floor plan” or “pages” directly on the landing page
Roles All kinds of users involved in implementing and using cloud solutions from SAP, such as SAP S/4HANA Cloud, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Ariba, SAP Concur, SAP Fieldglass, SAP Business ByDesign, SAP Business One solutions, and more to test the next-generation 360 account management
Previous Experience Working experience and related business or technical awareness related to small and midsize business (SMB) market solutions are preferred.
Preview After being presented with clickable prototypes, you can finish specific tasks under use cases related to the landing page. The use cases are designed under two types of user roles:

  • End user working on the landing page every day
  • Solution partner or customer IT administrator who customizes the technical frame and contents on the landing page per enterprise needs

We want to get your feedback on the experience of doing the tasks.

Background Information Our goal is to limit the navigations and drill-downs when users need specific pieces of information relevant to their daily role-based work. The idea of a landing page with customizable leveled contents is our proposed solution to the goal.

Topic 10: Innovative 360 Account Management for the Midmarket (The New Way of Work)

The 360 details pattern is a pattern that displays document information in different levels of details, from the simplest “bite” view to the moderate “snack” view to the full “meal” view. By using this pattern, you can view your account details and perform tasks in a flexible and efficient way.

Description The content on the account management page in the current SAP Business ByDesign solution can be simplified. Currently, users navigate through different tabs to pinpoint their desired information. The content layout needs to be simpler and more hierarchical. The user interaction should be more flexible and efficient. That is why we are building a new “bite-snack-meal” pattern with widget groups to address your actual needs:

  • The bite view gives an overview of the least necessary information you need.
  • The snack view serves as a transition between the simplest bite view and the fully expanded meal view. It offers further information to serve certain business needs without having to expand all the details.
  • The meal view displays the details of an account.
  • The content in these views is organized and integrated by widgets, with which you can group and customize your desired chunks of information.
Roles All kinds of users involved in implementing and using cloud solutions from SAP, such as SAP S/4HANA Cloud, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Ariba, SAP Concur, SAP Fieldglass, SAP Business ByDesign, and SAP Business One solutions and more to test the next-generation 360 account management
