Once upon a time…Everybody started emphasizing the importance of storytelling. What is story telling? We use it to communicate events & ideas and it helps us to relate and engage through history. All businesses use storytelling as a strategic move of engagement to build brand loyalty.* Next week there is a magic event happening in Orlando and I want to make sure that you don’t miss out on the highlights around the Database and Technology campus and all our sessions around SAP HANA. So let me tell you the Database & Technology story…

Our story in a short summary: 38 customer stories, 22 theater presentations, 5 panels, 4 show floor studio interviews, press & analysts engagements, over 123 “Meet the Experts” sessions, 17 demo pods/discussion tables, 64 demo theater sessions, 32 microforums, 8 HANA expert tables.

The Database and Technology campus story has many HANA layers, however if you want to get the whole overview over all of the 200+ sessions touching the topic around SAP HANA in some way spread throughout the entire show floor, I advise you to read Dan Kearnan’s blog. He has the answer.

Back to the Database & Technology campus story: All of our product marketing teams have taken the time to introduce you to the “must-see” sessions and “don’t miss” customer panels, so read yourself away on what to expect on

And many more stories are being told like the Customer Stars shining over Orlando, SAP Security, Process Orchestration, SAP NetWeaver PortalSAP Developer Survival Guide, NetWeaver Gateway and Duet Enterprise.

I also want to invite you to stop by the show case area when at SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando and explore the innovative and transformational SAP technology. The way SAP is touching the lives of people is substantial. SAP helps people to connect and follow their passion in order to make our lives run better.


On this note those following sessions may be of a great interest for you as well:
