What is the SAP AppHaus Network?

The SAP AppHaus Network is a community of SAP AppHaus locations and likeminded SAP partners, united in the idea that innovation needs three key ingredients to flourish:

  • Process: A human-centered approach to innovation
  • People: A multi-disciplinary team
  • Place: A creative environment

Clients benefit from shared experiences, best practices, and values. By spanning across all regions, the SAP AppHaus Network brings innovation to SAP customers globally through leveraging the full potential of design thinking and SAP technologies, especially SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP). This combination of process, people and place with SAP technology creates real added-value for clients.

The EPI-USE AppHaus in Pretoria, South Africa, was launched at an exclusive event in March 2023.

What is design thinking?

Design thinking is a human-centered, problem-solving approach that emphasizes empathy, collaboration, and experimentation to address complex challenges, promoting creative and holistic thinking that enables individuals and teams to uncover new insights and develop user-centric, practical, and impactful solutions.

At EPI-USE AppHaus Pretoria, we leverage design-thinking methodologies to unlock the full potential of a client’s idea, aligning business objectives through understanding the need or requirement, rapid prototyping and creating iterative feedback loops.
