Analytics Sessions to Attend
at SAP SAPPHIRE NOW
It’s time for SAP’s Perennial Highly Integrated R/2-3 Exchange, better known by the less tongue-twisting acronym, SAPPHIRE NOW. It’s the annual conference for SAP users and partners — a chance for you to hear announcements, see product roadmaps, attend sessions, take courses, and network with other users and partners. This year, the event will take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from May 7-9. New in 2019, SAP will organize the show floor around five collaborative communities (aka neighborhoods) that explore challenges, opportunities, and technologies related to business outcomes in the following areas: digital supply chain, customer experience, people engagement, digital core, and network and spend management. Each neighborhood will include space for inspiration and education, including theater sessions, showcases, customer stories, interactive sessions, workshops, expert meetings, and product demos. With more than 2,000 sessions over three days, you’ll need to plan ahead to maximize the experience. Here are our top picks for sessions that SAP BusinessObjects and 360Suite customers won’t want to miss.
