Are you looking to help make your Professional Services firm run better? If you are, you must join us at the upcoming SAPPHIRE NOW conference and ASUG Annual Conference event from Orlando which will take place May 14 to 16. You’ll meet technology experts, exchange ideas with industry and line of business (LoB) colleagues, and join discussion groups that focus on your industry’s unique business challenges. This year, the SAP professional services industry team is more excited than ever by the breadth and depth of what is being showcased that we know will be of great use to you. Here are just a few of the highlights:
Hear from Successful Professional Services Firms Leveraging SAP HANA and Analytics
There is no better way to learn about this new technology than to hear directly from other professional services firms about the value they are deriving from their SAP solutions, including How Interpublic Group (IPG) Leverages Business Objects to Price Complex Customer Projects, or IBM’s Commoditized / Productized and Customer Services Implementation, or CSC’s BPC, Reports, and Dashboards Implementation. All three of these informative sessions will be held at the ASUG Annual Conference event this year.
Meanwhile, over at the SAPPHIRE NOW conference, you will be able to Get the Inside Story on Deloitte’s Implementation of SAP HANA as well as How Accenture Manages Commercial and Government Contractor Reporting. And much more.
Get Moving with Mobility
Professional services firms are the epitome of the mobile workforce – always on the go – and as such, mobility solutions are a strategic necessity. But where do you start? To answer that question for you, SAP will be hosting two microforums at the SAPPHIRE NOW conference on Innovating with Mobile in Professional Services and a one session at the ASUG Annual Conference event covering the Strategic Necessity of Mobility in Professional Services. In addition, you won’t want to miss CSC’s microforum on Integrating the Enterprise with Mobile Apps from SAP. SAP’s specific mobile solutions for professional services will also be demonstrated at a Discussion Table as well as in two Demo Theater presentations in the Run Better campus.
Imagine being able to quickly find the right person in your organization with the skills or experience you need to answer a client’s problem – all from your iPad. Imagine no further. At the conferences, SAP will be providing a sneak peek at a new mobile application being developed with a partner Tata Consulting Services (TCS) called TCS ExpertFinder, and this innovation will be shown in the mobile sessions above, as well as in the Test Drive area in the Mobile Campus and in the TCS ExpertFinder session at the ASUG Annual Conference event.
See and Touch the Solutions
Any professional services firm that wants to run better will want to see SAP’s current solutions for professional services automation (PSA). These solutions will be demonstrated at a Streamlining Your Commercial Project Management Discussion Table, as well as in two sessions called PSA Enabled by SAP Mobile Apps in the Demo Theaters. Michael Lamade, the Head of SAP’s Professional Services IBU, will present SAP’s strategic vision for the Next Generation of PSA in a session at the ASUG Annual Conference event.
Touch the Cloud
One of the hottest new areas for professional services firms is Cloud solutions. At the conferences, you will have the chance to hear about SAP’s OnDemand business solution in a microforum called Transforming Your Professional Services Firm with SAP Business ByDesign. You can also see these solutions in action at a Discussion Table and in the Test Drive areas in the Cloud campus. LOB OnDemand solutions, including SAP Sales OnDemand, SAP Travel OnDemand, and SuccessFactors Business Execution will also be showcased.
Please come to the SAPPHIRE NOW conference + ASUG Annual Conference event and witness customer presentations, live solution demos in our Demo Theaters and Discussion Tables, and also take part in focused microforum discussions that you need to help your professional services firm run better. It’s an ideal time to connect with your peers, with experts from SAP and SAP partners, and to engage with the professional services industry community. You are sure to make connections that will not only help you maximize your experience at the SAPPHIRE NOW Conference + ASUG Annual Conference event, but will also provide tremendous value long after you have returned home from Orlando.
SAP looks forward to seeing you in Orlando and work with you to enable you to run like never before!
