Running Pace with Oliver Bussmann at SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando

For those of you who are not runners, you may be wondering what this headline means. “Running pace” is how long it takes to run a mile. At this year’s SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando, I had the opportunity to run a few miles on the show floor with SAP CIO Oliver Bussmann.

In preparation for the event, Oliver gave me two tasks:

1.)    Memorize the floor plan.

2.)    Bring running shoes.



    SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando is only a week away and I can’t wait.

Many of my favorite SAP Runs SAP ambassadors are going to be there — such as Michael Golz, Martin Heisig, Martin Lang and Matthias Wild. If you are attending, make sure you visit the SAP Runs SAP booth. It is your chance to see SAP Runs SAP in action.

I am most excited about the fact that enterprise mobility expert Eric Lai and SAP’s Chief Information Officer Oliver Bussmann will be taking part in a live #SAPCHAT on Wednesday, May 16 at 1:00 p.m. ET in Orlando.

Eric and Oliver will be talking about social media, SAP Runs SAP, bring your own device (BYOD), enterprise mobility and, and, and – anything goes live on Twitter.

To be part of the party, on site or online, use this link or simply watch the #SAPChat tag on Twitter.

If you have never seen a #SAPCHAT in action on Twitter, then make this a date for your diary. You do not need to be in Orlando to take part. I, for one, will be taking part from the comfort of my own home.
