Meet peers, Software AG and partner experts. And let the conversation carry on into the night with two exciting evening functions.

                    User Experience sessions

"People ignore design that ignores people." Frank Chimero
Good product design is all about empathizing. It starts with understanding the users' goals and needs. So come in to share your thoughts, and to learn about design systems or innovation methods. Engage with our designers via casual chat, an experts discussion, or a planned usability study.
