14:15 Slicing the elephant – how to feasibly make 14,000 user interfaces accessible 

SAP has a huge number of user interfaces across its products, for example more than 14,000 in the next generation ERP software SAP S/4HANA. The accessibility of these user interfaces needs to be considered as part of the product development, managed, and communicated to customers and partners. Learn how SAP’s framework for accessibility drives and supports that, how they got everybody onboard, the internal processes they have put in place to succeed and how they met the unique challenges of a huge global product.

Andreas Huppert is a senior software architect at SAP. He works at the SAP headquarter in Walldorf (Germany) in the product management of SAP S/4HANA. His role is to make sure that SAP S/4HANA follows SAPs own standards for software development and has critical qualities – with a focus on accessibility.
