It’s only 7 days until SAPPHIRE NOW from Orlando. Have you already figured out how to stay on top of all conversations around D&T? I’ve heard the question several times during the last weeks and I will show you how to follow D&T and its sessions, conversations and announcements made during SAPPHIRE NOW without getting lost in the social media world.
First, it’s very important to know which hashtags to follow for database and technology. I have good and bad news. Bad news is there is not one hashtag which will explain everything around the campus. The good news is, I’m showing you right now what’s important for you to know so you can follow the relevant conversations. Make sure to always follow #SAPPHIRENOW. All activities related to the campus (sessions, microforums, presentations etc.) will be announced with the #database hashtag. And don’t forget to always follow and include #sapphirenow in your tweet. Please see below for all hashtags that will be relevant for D&T (depending on the topic).
#sapphirenow – Event hashtag
#database – D&T Campus Hashtag
#SAP #HANA – HANA
#SAP #EIM – Enterprise Information Management
#Sybase – Sybase, Sybase IQ and Sybase ASE
#NetWeaver – Process Orchestration
#SAP #Security – Security
#SAPPortal, #Gateway, #DuetEnterprise – Portals, Gateway and Duet Enterprise
#Developer – SAP Developer Program
#SAPServices – SAP Services

#RDS – Rapid Deployment Solutions
