Seventy professors from 52 SAP University Alliances member schools across the Americas participated in four days of train-the-trainer oriented coursework at the University Alliances North America Summer 2013 workshops at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, July 9-12, 2013. Participants gained hands on experience with the latest solutions in SAP’s innovation platform…SAP HANA, Analytics, and Mobile. The workshops were hosted by the Lubar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which as always did an outstanding job supporting the professors.
