I met Kumar in March at an SAP event and found him to be articulate, knowledgeable and forthright. This is the type of customer-speaker you want to hear from when you attend a SAP event.
Here is his abstract below of his session:
As part of Sigma-Aldrich’s strategy to implement a robust and scalable enterprise data warehouse (EDW), they recently migrated their SAP Business Warehouse powered by SAP HANA platform and implemented an SAP BusinessObjects platform and allied toolsets to support their wide user base ranging from desktop to mobile.
