Get a head-start on ASUG/SAPPHIRE – and on the latest innovations – with ASUG InDepth pre-conference sessions

If you want to get a head-start on SAP’s latest innovations at SAP’s greatest conference: ASUG and SAPPHIRENOW, then the ASUG InDepth: Pre-Conference Seminars on Sunday May 13, 2012 are for you.

There are 13 InDepth half and full day sessions on various topics including BI4 Feature Pack 3, SAP HANA or BPC on HANA.

While I would personally recomment you attend the full ASUG / SAPPHIRE conference from May 14-16, 2012, I understand that this is a substantial time and financial commitment. The great thing about the pre-conference sessions is that they require only a day’s commitment and they are far cheaper than a full conference pass. For $495 ($595 for non-ASUG members) you can get deep into your favorite topic and meet the world’s best experts and network with other customers.

This blog describes to you how to register for the pre-conference session only (without having to pay for a full ASUG/SAPPHIRE registration).

Note that you can also follow this process to 1) register for the full conference and a pre-conference session or 2) to add a pre-conference session to your existing conference registration.

To register for a pre-conference session only: go to and hit “Register Now”


On the next screen enter your name and email and select “ASUG Annual Conference” as a program focus (that is important – if you click SAPPHIRE, you won’t be presented with the pre-conference session)


Select your relationship to SAP (e.g. Customer) and tickmark “I am registering for a Pre-Conference only”


Fill in your details on the next screen.


Select the pre-conference session you would like to attend on the following screen:


Check the billing information to ensure you get billed for only $495 ($595 for non-ASUG members) and not for the whole conference.

Hope to see you in Orlando!

      The ASUG preconference sessions are the only place where you are going to get a long enough program to really dig in deep, as well as a context that often is missed in the narrow context of product-specific sessions.

      For example, we are organizing a session on building a comprehensive IT cloud strategy for SAP which spans IT governance and business case development for projects that include migrating on premise to cloud, taking SaaS applications, and even doing custom development in the cloud.  In other words, a context of "why" to help people understand the greater story related to the 210 cloud sessions at ASUG / SAPPHIRE NOW.
