SAPPHIRENOW this year will be richly interspersed with great sessions but you shouldn´t miss our special forum Cloud in 2020: The Driving Force of Business Outcome at all which I am happy to sponsor in Orlando June 4th.

Our Cloud experts will delve into all aspects of cloud and span business value across all deployment models and cloud areas. Get ready, building the foundation for 2020 begins today.
We are more than happy to have Neil Krefsky on the Agenda talking about what needs to be done to Empower C-Level Executives with Modern Tools for Better Decision Making
“By 2016, 80% of new IT investments will directly involve LOB executives, with LOBs as the Lead of decision makers in half or more of those investments.”
LoB executives are set up to drive business results and innovate their respective business areas. They are keen to take decisions fast and based on facts.
Everything they consume needs to be
- Meaningful and digestible
- Connected to the Enterprise context
- Consolidated from all relevant sources
Meaningful reports, clear trends, prediction, better forecasts
To give an example, pt the PoS (Point of Sales) sales managers require an easy-to-use application to monitor the business at a glance and link it to the business performance of individuals and take actions. Ioannis, an industry veteran and true expert in this area as Chief Development Architect and Development Lead in the Global Design Team at SAP, will explain the shifting mind set.
He will take us on the journey what it requires to support top executives with tools to review the health of their business and understand performance highlights and issues.
To make it tangible and fun during the session he will simulate a Business Review Meeting and outline what is expected from a modern tool and what it needs to offer such as:
- One single truth of data to compare actuals, historic data and forecasts
- Insights and anticipation to support decision making
- An effective base for preparing and running such meetings
