A business is only as good as its data. The accuracy of enterprise information is the foundation for a business’ success—or failure. The 2012 ASUG Annual Conference will help you learn which SAP enterprise information management tools will help you to eliminate cracks in that foundation, and how to get started with these tools. If you are trying to find a way to convince your company that information should indeed be treated as a true enterprise asset, this conference will definitely help you. The conference includes many sessions on Enterprise Information Management (EIM) and Information Governance.
In addition to the sessions, most customer-led, we will also have two pre-conference sessions. The aim of the pre-conference sessions is to really help you dig in to the next level of detail for both solution strategies, as well as tool features. These pre-Conference sessions will be held on Sunday May 13th . Hurry! They are filling up quickly! (Register here: http://www.sapandasug.com/asugindepth.html)
