Synactive Inc.
SAP UX with a New GuiXT for iOS, Android, Web, SAP GUI
The ability to provide functionality through an intuitive user experience is critical today in improving system usage, data quality,
adoption of business processes and delivering efficiencies throughout ones company.
Liquid UI delivers a fast return on your ERP investment, with dramatic increase in productivity (in some cases, more than 80% as
indicated by customers such as Hillyard), drastic cuts in SAP training time (e.g. Marathon Oil brought input notification training down
to 30 minutes), and eliminating 95% of errors as resulted by Canada Post. We have helped hundreds of companies in Utilities, Oil
and Gas, Retail, etc improve compliance, data quality, accelerate process completion time by simplifying SAP from Plant Maintenance
to Sales and Distribution, for users in the office to those out in the field with or without network connectivity.
A new, colorful web-based design, delivered through a browser creates a modern user experience, or a native iOS app and Android
app can connect directly to SAP with no additional software required. For a streamlined user experience, the Liquid UI SAP UX
platform provides one unified, fully secure, usability strategy across desktop, web, and mobile devices with one native connection,
one development effort, one code base and one script. This is a User Friendly alternative to SAP Screen Personas and SAP Fiori
apps that fills the whitespace in your SAP UX strategy with deployment on SAP R/3 or above with or without SAP HANA!
With patented connectivity to SAP, Liquid UI's data and web services functionality provides the flexibility to combine information
from other applications with SAP, i.e. Sales Force CRM integration with ERP screens. This holistic, unified platform approach
seamlessly brings together the required data from ones ERP and related sources and makes it available in one screen design format
to any touchpoint within the organization.

Raising Your BI Game: The Next Generation HANA and Birst Cloud Solution

Get an overview of the SAP HANA and Birst Cloud Solution


Explore why the combination uniquely enables rapid deployment and agility
Gain an understanding of how the solution can accelerate deployment of new data warehouses and marts in HANA, as well
leverage existing data warehouses and marts in multi-vendor ecosystems
Hear how SAP customers are benefiting from Birst technology today

Historically, BI implementations have required complex on-premise architectures, employing numerous capital and labor intensive
hardware, BI, ETL, data modeling, and RDBMS components. These architectures result in long and expensive deployments as well
as high continuing cost of ownership and long lead times in extending content and functionality. Cloud and appliance
technologies such as HANA and Birst are accelerating and simplifying these projects and providing for greater business agility at
significantly less cost. During this session attendees will learn what makes this possible, and how real customers are leveraging SAP
and Birst technologies together to turn instant insight into action by delivering critical actionable information to every relevant
employee across the organization.

New Fiori Apps for HCM
Fiori is SAPs new UI strategy and many customers want to start with an HCM app. This session will provide an overview on the
new and enhanced HCM apps which were delivered with Fiori wave 7.
The newest Fiori installment provides 3 new apps for the Employee role, i.e. People Profile, Employee Lookup, and Team Calendar,
and much enhanced versions of the 6 existing HCM apps. Attendees will see a demo of the wave 7 apps and get an outlook on the
upcoming Fiori waves.
