It is pretty quiet here in Walldorf today without my IT buddies. They are all in Madrid preparing for SAPPHIRE NOW and TechED Madrid.

BizBash magazine recently described SAPPHIRE Now from Madrid as the “Most Innovative Meeting of 2012” – take a look at this video to see why.

It is always a pleasure to listen to Oliver Bussmann and Mike Golz but this time, I cannot wait to see Bjoern Brencher’s hacking activities, or hearing which killer apps SAP Mentor Martin Lang will be sharing and learning about the latest Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) developments from Alex Guitman. In addition our regular experts Matthias Wild, David Poisson, Bernhard Wallner, Ozzy Genis and friends will be onsite sharing a multitude of tips and tricks on how SAP Runs SAP.

As always, SAP Runs SAP has a lot to offer. Don’t just take my word for it; take a look at the list of SAP Runs SAP activities on offer. Build your own agenda here to make sure you don’t miss any of the fun. Alternatively, follow #SAPRunsSAP on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest happenings.
