Disruptive Innovation: Cloud Computing 101 & Business Gets Social
Social Networking and Cloud Computing are disruptive forces. Organizations that embrace cloud will benefit from continuous innovation and gain a competitive advantage over those that delay their strategy for too long or ignore completely. Concurrently, many individuals and companies are struggling to unlock the value of business social networking. Socially-driven processes are challenging traditional approaches to business and allow people to connect and interact with unprecedented speed and ease as business gets social.

Leverage powerful work patterns and go social with SAP Jam
SAP Jam is SAP’s enterprise social networking software that brings together people, data, and processes to drive collaboration and decision-making within your enterprise business. This session looks at how SAP Jam in the cloud, integrated with SAP CRM on-premise, enables your Sales organization to socially manage key customer accounts and win sales opportunities. Rather than imposing a specific workflow on an organization, account executives and sales managers capture existing work patterns and collaborate using SAP Jam to shorten sales cycles and increase ROI.
In this session we outline SAP’s cloud Analytics strategy and explore each solution offering and deployment model. Whether you want to deploy an enterprise grade, zero-footprint SAP BI 4 system in the Cloud or offer a maintenance free self-service BI solution such as SAP Lumira Cloud to all your users, this session will give you the background, insights, and details to choose the right SAP product in the right cloud deployment model.
Following this we will show you how SAP Lumira Cloud empowers business users within any organization to analyze, interact, and share their Insights with stakeholders inside, and outside the company. Explore how to get started today with a deployment free way of harnessing the power of next generation analytics.
