Matthias Wild shares his account of his first ever SAPPHIRE NOW in this post.
SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando is running and a team of architects and experts from SAP Global IT is in the middle of the show to tell the SAP runs SAP story. For me personally it is my first SAPPHIRE NOW and I am honestly overwhelmed in many ways. First of course just by the show floor and the pure energy of this event. But second – and much more important – by the great dialogues and discussions I had with SAP customers and partners on the first day.
My (video ) favorite topics these days are BW on SAP HANA, the move to scale-out SAP HANA infrastructure to achieve high-availability and sneak previews for SAP ZEN. We have David Poisson at the booth to show all kind of Analytics Apps and the brand new SAP Visual Intelligence (some videos in thisblogfrom Timo Elliott). Holger Faber is here with the fabulous integration story for BW Integrated Planning and BPC 10 version for NetWeaver.
The Enterprise Architect Bernhard Wallner (video ) can share the vision and our next steps for ECC on SAP HANA. Dirk Pluschke can show you live business scenarios on SAP HANA side-by-side in ECC, in BW, or with direct connection to SAP BusinessObjects platform 4.03. Joseph Houben (video ) is available to give insights on the mobile Apps.
These are real stories to tell, these are the projects and products the SAP Global IT department deploys and runs at SAP – and we are at SAPPHIRE NOW to share our experience with you.
