As all Fortune 500 companies, Eastman Chemical is constantly working on optimizing their strategy for digital transformation and mobility. At the core of this digital transformation lies an urgent need for an overhaul of the User Experience (UX) of enterprise software. Relying heavily on SAP, they needed a successful Fiori UX strategy for the future of the SAP User Experience.
