After 2 days of jam packed sessions and exciting keynotes by SAP executives, I believe we can put away any doubts on SAP’s transformation to a Cloud company after this year’s SAPPHIRE NOW.
Why? “Becuase We Can“
Although it is the last day for SAPPHIRE NOW, conference attendees still made their way to the final stretch of the conference after a super-charged concert last night performed by Jon Bon Jovi and The Kings of Suburbia.
We kicked off the day with a special keynote by Rodolpho Cardenuto of SAP Global Partner Operation together with partners OpenText and Adobe. They talked about how SAP valued our partners to accelerate our customer engagement. Partners are certainly a key piece in the puzzle for SAP to become a Cloud company. If you are a long-time SNL (Saturday Night Live) fan like me, you must love the presence of Dana Carvey, Dennis Miller and Kevin Nealon on stage. That really brought back a lot of good old memories from the ‘90s.
As mentioned by Ning-Jing and Supriya in their blogs in the past 2 days, our Google Glass demo was crowded with technology enthusiasts and Gateway developers. On its last showing today, it still drew a big crowd to check out what Gateway can do with Google Glass. Today, SAP’s Himanshu Pande and the staff from Quantilus presented in the session – “Use Machine Vision in your Enterprise” – and showcased the fascinating application (Go to Work) built by SAP Gateway and Google Glass.
The team from SAP Gateway for Microsoft also presented a session on how our customer, Hess, uses SAP Gateway for Microsoft to build an Invoice Approvals Solutions to improve the user experience for their field users. The session was jointly presented by SAP’s Jenny Lundberg, Capgemini (partner) and Hess (customer).
