Attendees of SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando 2014 will surely have noticed an inordinate number of young people scurrying about the show floor of the convention center. It may have been a surprising sight at an event which has historically catered to customers, partners, and scores of tech industry professionals, but as veteran SAP-watchers may have gleaned, SAP is embracing the Millennial generation in a big way.
Some of the young people at the event were university students who were acting as social media reporters, sharing their views and impressions of SAPPHIRE NOW and the technologies they discovered on site. Many of these students are considering careers in the tech sector, so SAP wants to cement the connection with these young people. Smart move, considering this generation represents the potential future workforce of SAP.

The new student edition of SAP Learning Hub offers a comprehensive library of electronic content that universities can provide to students for self-study covering close to 150 SAP solutions.
