6 winning students out of 2012 UA Dashboard Design competition were invited to attend SAPPHIRE Orlando 14-16 May, 2013. Their fantastic trip started from pre-conference day features on UA new release and ‘Design Thinking’ workshop which were really amazing and new them. Throughout the workshop, they got clearly understanding about how we “Learn”, “Share” and “Apply” that UA’s mission to inspire and educate new generation also transfer SAP edging knowledge to them. Massive information about UA various platforms shared. It’s believed they will spend more time to take in this information after they return to school. Also they joined a CRS session that helps everyone to get to know people’s social responsibility and care about surroundings.
More importance was SAP offers them an absolutely fantastic opportunity to learn western world, the culture and the way of work.

Everyone in Orange County Conference Center is enjoying themselves in this ASUG’s “big show”. With more than 600 sessions providing customer best practices and lessons learned, you will find hundreds of exhibitors for SAP software, as well as service and support providers. The innovative products, services, and fresh perspectives offered at SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference can energize your insight growth.
I am more interested into the USER EXPERIMENTS and DESIGN THINKING. The Dreamdatas made by the German university teams show the SAP HANA how to work for humanity. In addition, IDF (interaction design foundation) has a great idea to share the E-book s online and to introduce the “Gamification” concept. The new Dashboard was also powerful.
Bin Yu, Tongji University:
It is a great honour for us to attend the SAPPHIRE NOW 2013 in Orlando. During the time, we learned what Design Thinking is. We also attended many SAP Keynote Presentations, which were quite interesting and meaningful. Before the conference, I didn’t know what role SAP is playing in the world. Now, I realize that SAP is really helpful and important for many companies.
I appreciate the service of the conference very much. Everything is in perfect order, such as the Registration, the Lunch, the Shuttle bus, etc. Everyone is kind to us. This experience is memorable.
