Knoa User Experience Management (UEM) Solution Provides Outstanding Insight into User Experience and Supports Deployments of SAP Fiori
ORLANDO, FL – May 5, 2015 – Knoa® Software, a leading provider of user experience and performance management software, announced today that it has extended its solution capabilities to support SAP Fiori® applications and solutions for HR from SuccessFactors, an SAP company. The Knoa solution for user experience management (UEM), used by some of the biggest and best-known consumer products, entertainment, pharmaceutical and manufacturing brands in the world, delivers key insight into application performance, from the user point-of-view.
Knoa’s unique front-end monitoring approach provides insight into how employees interact with enterprise applications through the collection and analysis of end-user metrics. This allows users to separate real problems from subjective opinions, helping them to identify specific areas for improvement and take corrective actions to further ensure the maximum return on software investments. The Knoa UEM solutions for SuccessFactors® HCM Suite and SAP Fiori will extend this capability as users adopt those applications, and are planned to be available for deployment on-premises or in the cloud.

Our customers understand that their people are among their most valuable assets and are dedicated to optimizing their performance. They view Knoa as a key resource to help ensure successful rollouts of new exciting solutions such as SAP Fiori and those from SuccessFactors.”
