UXC Oxygen invests further in user experience expertise

By David Simpson, Practice Manager Emerging Solutions on
Oxygen, a DXC Technologies Company has ramped up its already strong presence in the user experience (UX) and mobility space by establishing an Emerging Solutions practice to facilitate the expansion of skills and market presence across functional and technical teams.

The announcement that SAP has included the FIORI productivity application as part of the standard SAP licence is expected to increase demand as the new UX and mobility flavour can be added for existing SAP users at a relatively low cost.

Over the last six months the majority of Oxygen, a DXC Technologies Company’s UX projects have been focused on expanding the reach of the SAP system to users in the field, and replacing paper-based and manual processes. These projects have involved extending the SAP UI5 framework to include offline functionality and providing access to device functionality including cameras, QR scanners and GPS. 

Some examples include:

  • A mobile field force inspection application that allows a mining machinery manufacturer to inspect machinery in the field and pre-order parts and activities before the machinery comes in for service, greatly reducing down-time.
  • A hybrid consumer application that enables end customers to scan their printers and copiers, update information and order consumables and services from their smartphone straight into SAP.
  • A mobile asset management solution that allows offline access for field force workers to create and update notifications and service orders. 

The acquisition of White Labelled, a specialist ecommerce practice, in 2013 has given Oxygen, a DXC Technologies Company access to a team of HTML5 and JavaScript developers who are proficient in SAP UI5 and have strong UX design skills.  By combining consumer-based UX design skills with the strong process abilities of core SAP applications Oxygen, a DXC Technologies Company can now deliver a new generation of UX designs for SAP focused solutions.
