With SAPPHIRE NOW 2013 kicking off in Orlando next week, SAP Global IT’s SAP Runs SAP team is excited to be back again bringing IT’s latest innovations.

As a quick refresher, here is an overview of the program and what our team does. SAP Runs SAP is an SAP Global IT program that enables SAP to be an early adopter and first reference customer of SAP applications, solutions and products in each of the five market categories. Our collaboration with SAP Development means we can provide early feedback from a customer perspective.  With SAP acting as an early adopter within the product lifecycle, we help to improve the product functionality and quality for our customers. And as a trusted advisor and enabler for our customers, SAP Runs SAP is helping SAP customers run better.  (Quicklink: /go/sap-runs-sap)

  

SAP Runs SAP takes its place at SAPPHIRE with an expert table. You can consult our in-house experts to learn more about the scoping, design, implementation and execution across a huge range of SAP’s innovations. Our team will showcase awesome demos; participate in customer meetings, partner sessions, and powerful micro-forums – while also making ourselves available to talk to you at our expert table. Here are some of our topics:

  

The complete SAP product offering is underscored by breakthrough technology.

With SAP’s goal to help customers run faster, smarter and simpler, our analytics solutions mean that customers can make on-the-fly decisions using tools such as Visual Intelligence, HAVANA (Sales pipeline), Mobile Dashboards, SAP BI Mobile (WIN8), BO Explorer on iPad on HANA, Sustainability dashboard and the Board Transparency App. Talk to our experts to discover how our analytics tools can change your business velocity and accuracy.

SAP solutions and technology strategy not only optimize business, but will fuel business growth and drive individual empowerment. See how we have revolutionized next generation customer experience with applications such as SAP Screen Personas for Accrual cockpit and SAP’s Financial Planning solution.

The cloud engages people – customers, partners and employees – and we use a variety of Cloud scenarios to do just that. From our Cloud Integration Scenarios, to Travel OnDemand, Ariba Sourcing, Supplier registration, qualification, and classification and the Ariba Catalog, we are actively showcasing a variety of cloud models.
