My correspondent from Sapphire, Stephen Hirsch, is a music lover. But when he thinks music, he thinks classical. He thinks chamber. Yet as we speak he is readying himself for an altogether different experience – Eric Clapton live at Sapphire. It seems even classical music lovers will make an exception when it comes to Slowhand.
Feedback on the Monster Demo space was very strong all through Day Two. Crowds moved through the space all day with particular interest in Enterprise Learning, SAP Productivity Pak by RWD, SAP Acrobat Connect Professional by Adobe, and SAP User Experience Management by Knoa.
The SAP Education Account Managers took advantage of the space, regularly bringing through clients with particular needs and business challenges. Feedback from those clients indicates that businesses are beginning to “get” the importance (and potential) of SAP User Experience Management by Knoa. There is no other solution in the marketplace that allows management to measure and understand what end users are actually doing with their SAP system and how it impacts performance (and ROI).
There was also strong interest in Enterprise Learning. In particular, the integrated virtual classroom, proved popular with all who were able to see it in action.
One of the standout performances of the day, however, came in the late afternoon. Emerson Lopes-Fuentes from our partner, RWD Products, performed a demonstration of Productivity Pak for some Latin American clients. And while we have seen this done many times over the past couple of days, never before have we seen it done in Spanish.
Earlier in the day, the SAP Education Influence Council held a passionate series of conversations with education experts from SAP and our clients. The discussions centered around social media and the potential for learning in the enterprise. This is bound to continue to be a hot topic for the foreseeable future.
Tomorrow, the Sapphire experience wraps at 1pm. If you have the chance, drop by the Monster Demo space while you can. I hear it rivals Clapton 😉
