It might not be ready for public use yet, but the SAP Fiori 2.0 user experience design concept is already attracting accolades, winning a prestigious Red Dot Design Award in the Interaction Category of the award’s Design Concept discipline.
With 4680 entries from 61 countries, the Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2015 was presented in Singapore in late September. Established in 2005, the Design Concept discipline has grown to be the largest and most recognised professional design competition for design concept and prototypes worldwide.
While SAP has begun revealing the Fiori 2.0 concept internally, there is no word yet on its release date, though it is planned to be the user experience for S/4 HANA and other solutions. According to SAP, it will deliver new features such as improved contextual interaction, enhanced relational navigation for complex settings, action-oriented personal notifications, real-time collaboration in an enhanced transactional model, and improved productivity tools – while staying true to the original Fiori design principles: role-based, responsive, simple, coherent and delightful.
Sam Yen, chief design officer for SAP, said the company was “honoured and humbled” to receive the award.
“To be recognised by peers in the design industry is evidence that our continuous focus on user experience and our design vision have reached new levels of distinction in the market. Great design, while very difficult to achieve, results in a unique user experience that is personalised, simple and effective. This is key to winning in the digital economy,” Yen said.
