SAPPHIRE NOW is right around the corner and with a show floor so big it could cover 16 football fields, it can be a daunting task to make your way to your intended destination. So let’s take a minute so focus on one key area that will permeate throughout the convention – the partner ecosystem. With a number of SAP Pinnacle Award winners participating in all 5 campuses, SAP’s most strategic partners will join the broader ecosystem in demonstrating their innovations and expertise in their core industries and lines of business.
Our system integrators and independent software vendors will be showcasing more SAP HANA supporting technology than ever before. Attend the various sessions to see how they are leveraging SAP HANA to enhance social media analytics, predictive analytics, simulation modeling, real-time sense and response, and a variety of interesting use cases. Partners are represented in the various session types throughout the 5 campuses. To learn more about the particular sessions, go to the agenda builder on sapandasug.com and type in the partner name as the keyword.
Session types include:
• 30-minute discussion panels with SAP, industry, and customer experts
• 45-minute microforum discussions which offer interactive roundtable discussions on niche topics
• 20-minute theatre presentations, featuring follow-up sessions with the speaker
• 20-minute demonstrations that show the latest SAP applications in action
In the Database and Technology Campus, we will have live SAP HANA servers from all of our certified hardware partners. IBM, HP, Cisco, Dell, NEC, Fujitsu, and Hitachi will be showing how to fully leverage the full power of the SAP HANA platform, and why customers need the right hardware infrastructure in place to reach their business goals.
We will also be hosting an educational and enablement session exclusively for partners on Sunday, May 13, known as the Partner Jumpstart Day, followed by a partner networking reception. This “by invitation only” event dedicates a full day of preparing our partners to get the most out of the conference with SAP thought leaders, sales experts and leadership. This will kick start and enhance their Sapphire experience, and give them early insight into the latest innovations, use cases, and selling strategies in the Analytics, Database & Technology, Mobile, and Cloud market segments for 2012.
Be sure to visit our partners’ booths and show support to the partnership and collaboration!
