It’s that time of year! SAPPHIRE NOW 2014 is back next week in Orlando and the SAP Runs SAP team will be there with SAP IT’s most recent innovations.

As a quick refresher, here is an overview of the program and what our team does. SAP Runs SAP is an SAP Global IT program that enables SAP to be an early adopter and first reference customer of SAP applications, solutions and products in each of the five market categories. Our collaboration with SAP Development means we can provide early feedback from a customer perspective.  With SAP acting as an early adopter within the product lifecycle, we help to improve the product functionality and quality for our customers. And as a trusted advisor and enabler for our customers, SAP Runs SAP is helping SAP customers run better.

 

During the conference, guests have the opportunity to consult our in-house experts to learn more about their real-life experience with the scoping, design, implementation and execution across a huge range of SAP’s innovations. Our team will showcase awesome demos; participate in customer meetings, partner sessions, and powerful micro-forums – while also making ourselves available to talk to you out on the showfloor. Follow us on social media (#SAPrunsSAP) so as not to miss out on any SAP Runs SAP: SAPPHIRE NOW 2014 excitement!
