SAP Fiori Elements

SAP Fiori Development Newsletter

Dear SAP Fiori development newsletter subscriber,

If this was a normal year, some of us would be starting to pack our bags to attend SAPPHIRE in Orlando. Instead, we can all attend virtually from the comfort of our homes . We have a few UX sessions planned, including a strategy talk from Benedikt Lehnert, SAP’s new chief design officer. 
We are planning our editorial calendar for 2021. Please let us know what you are interested in.

Your editorial team,
Peter, Conrad, Oliver, and Keren
