University Alliances at China Sapphire – Future IT Leader, 21st Nov, 2013
375 students (IT/Business majors primarily in third year of studies with some in the fourth year) and 71 professors from 38
universities, mostly from Beijing universities with some from Dalian, Guangzhou, Nanjing and Shanghai universities attended this event. The purpose of encouraging the students and professors participation is to increase student awareness of SAP’s strategy and our cool and innovative solutions – HANA, Cloud, Mobile, Analytics and Applications. We also like them to see SAP as the top career choice, along with our Ecosystem partners, and customers. We also would like to encourage these students to apply SAP solutions in contests, Co-Innovation projects, and research and even to have their own Startups using SAP HANA.
