Adding “ZEN”, Analysis and Dashboards to your ASUG Annual Conference Agenda


The release of SAP’s Statement of Direction on Dashboarding has increased interest in the area of Analysis and Dashboarding.  For this year’s ASUG Annual Conference (May 13-16, Orlando, Florida), we have a combined Analysis (yes it includes SAP “ZEN”)/Dashboarding track. ASUG Annual Conference offers some great education sessions, hands-on sessions, and SAP usability testing opportunities. 

Here are the sessions that ASUG volunteers selected to present:

You can see it is a combination of the Analysis suite of productions (Office, OLAP and future “ZEN”) and the BusinessObjects Dashboards tools, with both SAP customers and SAP presentations.   Both the Analysis and Dashboarding ASUG Influence Councils (Influence Councils are mentioned in the Statement of Direction) are update sessions and open to everyone – a great chance to meet and talk with SAP Solution and Product management.  “ZEN” (aka Analysis, Edition for Application Design) will be covered in this presentation session:
