If you are attending the conference in Orlando May 14th – 16th and are interested in SAP data archiving, image archiving and Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) topics (and let’s face it, who isn’t interested in these fascinating topics 😀 ), then the following sessions need to be added to your agenda.

I hope these sessions are what conference attendees are looking for in regards to SAP Archiving and ILM topics. As I am an ASUG Volunteer for the Archiving and ILM Special Interest Group and it is my role to select the abstracts for the Archiving Track. If there are any topics you wish to hear more about in the future, please let me know.
