Oh, I hope you are ready! The 2013 ASUG Annual Conference (co-located with SAPPHIRE® NOW, May 13 – 16 in Orlando, Florida) is right around the corner, and I sure don’t want you to miss out. This year, we have a great lineup of information sessions that span both the Data Governance Track, Data Management Track Retail, Workflow, Financials, Health Sciences, and the SAPPHIRE NOW show floor. I want to help you get the most out of the event, so I thought I’d pull together the key information-themed sessions across all of these venues into one handy dandy schedule. I know you’ve already read about the impact of information governance (infographic), and the cost of low quality data (infographic). Now learn how you can start solving these problems…talk to other people who have solved these problems, and talk to us SAPers about best practices for your use cases.

In the chart below, you’re going to see a pre-conference session (Monday, May 13), educational sessions, influence sessions, a community lounge, and SAPPHIRE sessions. Pay attention to the different locations, as you may need some travel time to move among the different rooms.

Seriously, look at that customer lineup. Really impressive.

Don’t forget about the Influence Council sessions. In these sessions, you can provide direct product feedback and direction for Data Services, Information Steward, Data Quality, and RapidMarts (EIM Influence Council with me) or Master Data Governance (Master Data Governance with Scott Braker).
