SAP deeps its feet on Digital Ink, Pen and Touch Technology with SAP Inscribe

By combining the natural, freestyle experience of pen and paper with the power of system intelligence, SAP Inscribe allows you to explore your data by writing, scribbling, or drawing commands. You can drill down and refine step-by-step to identify root causes, business challenges and opportunities.

If we look back to before technology even started, pen and paper has always allowed us to interact with our thoughts in a natural way, giving us these personal experiences. The limitation to this otherwise “free” method is its one-way interaction. What would it look like to combine the freedom and flexibility that pen and paper brings us along with rising system intelligence that now brings us a personalized and efficient user experience? What would it look like to bring that to the enterprise? Thus, Project “E-Quill” was born.

By providing this paper-based experience (also known as “Pen Computing”), SAP Inscribe empowers you to apply your elemental, cognitive skills to software interaction. It brings a new and natural UX paradigm for the enterprise, freeing you from the constraints of traditional user interfaces.

By combining the natural, freestyle experience of pen and paper with the power of system intelligence, SAP Inscribe allows you to explore your data by writing, scribbling, or drawing commands.

SAP Inscribe will soon launch a beta program for select customers on SAP S/4HANA, for which you can sign up here. Be on the lookout!
