Digital transformation with SAP and Ergosign

SAP HANA supports companies in their digital transformation. With the SAP HANA product, SAP is the technology leader in the area of in-memory computing. This puts high demands on handling, visualization and performance. Implementation is ensured by outstanding usability and unparalleled UX provided by Ergosign.

BriefPerformance for large amounts of data

With SAP HANA, for the first time ever, complex searches, analyses, and calculations can be carried out within milliseconds — even if a vast amount of data is involved. This high performance imposes special conditions on handling and visualization. Therefore the user interface is a critical component of the product SAP HANA.

ApproachInnovative UX & advanced animations

Together with SAP, we focused on the core functions and, after intensive database structure analysis, developed an innovative UX solution for data representation. Moreover, sophisticated animations make interactions more comprehensible for users. Originally envisaged as an independent application, SAP HANA Infos Access was eventually integrated into SAP Fiori. The front end of the native iOS App was also finally programmed by Ergosign UX developers in collaboration with SAP.

OutcomeNew design for digital transformation

SAP HANA is an open platform for the in-memory technology to be used by SAP for the first time. The SAP HANA platform is at the center of this new database generation, ideally suited for supporting companies in their shift to a digital economy. A UI jointly designed by the teams uses interaction and animations to implement this idea effectively.
