SAPPHIRE NOW + ASUG Annual Conference this year will be richly interspersed with great many great sessions , and  I am looking forward to many informative presentations.

As most of you know I am very interested Enterprise Asset Management. Part of  the EAM processes includes the management of capital projects.

With that in mind, I thought that I would point out the following session: Agrium: Growing the project portfolio and feeding an increasing need for information leveraging SAP PPM Jun4 4 4:15 – 5:15 S320B: S. Concourse, L3. In this ASUG presentation  Agrium details their implementation of the SAP PPM 5.0 module to manage their suite of Capital and Expense Projects across the Wholesale and Corporate Business units. The aim was to provide a centralized and integrated system for forecasting, budgeting, status updates, methodology adherence, risk ranking and the governance of the Board-approved annual Capital expenditure plan. With a myriad of project execution tools, Agrium chose a top-down approach and implemented the SAP PPM prior to enforcing project execution standards. This session will focus on challenges, successes, future opportunities, and many words of advice .

This looks like a very good opportunity to learn about controlling and managing the capital expenditure plan

As I wade through the agenda trying to identify sessions that I feel would interest you , I am starting to feel envious towards those who are attending, and not like me, working the conference. There are so many sessions that interest me, that all I can hope is that someone who attend one of my recommended sessions, comes back to the blog and tell us all about it. Lucky attendees

Hope to see you at the conference. And if you are not registered yet, it is not too late to sign up.

    Hi John,

    SAPPHIRE NOW + ASUG Annual Conference this year will be richly interspersed with great many great sessions , and  I am looking forward to many informative presentations.

    As most of you know I am very interested …

    Yes, indeed by now (after eight or so very similar posts which are partly repetitive) I indeed know there are many things you’re interested in, and for each of your interests there seems to be a SAPPHIRE session. Cool!

    I would very much appreciate it if you could just write 1 blog post with a recommendation of several sessions for your Industry, instead of flooding the place (SCN that is) with lots of copy-pasted blog posts, one per session.

    On behalf of (at least) part of the SCN community, thank you very much.

    BR, Fred
