SAP Scenes®


Storytelling is a prototyping technique where key points are displayed as scenes using materials like cardboard figures or comics. It serves the purpose of collecting and refining ideas, but also clarifying how exactly the product/service is intended to bring value in a specific context and how the information flows.

The Scene2Model tool aims to:
(1) automate the transformation of the SAP Scenes® haptic prototyping tool and to enable user to capture their innovative idea in a digital environment, where they can

  • enrich ideas (i.e. storyboards) with further properties and information (e.g. with business process interaction points, which capture the specific value delivery points of the enterprise)
  • modify and save the storyboards
  • make the storyboards available to other team member for further action

(2) provide a digital design environment addressing relevant aspects of design thinking, which companies can download for free, and which they can use to experiment with their innovative ideas by, for example, linking them to business processes or other enterprise specific artefacts.
