I felt really happy and proud to be a part of this big event and i felt that this kind of events should happen more often to attain more and more knowledge and these events would act as platform to share knowledge and experience. SIT has really set a good example that these kind of events can be organised and conducted with good team work which is very beneficial to all SAPians for those who have zeal to learn new things and grow.
I’ve seen passion and energy through out the day in every participant. The enthusiasm f participants to learn and explore new developments in SAP is phenomenal.
I congratulate SIT team for successfully organising such a big event in an organised and efficient manner. A big thanks to TCS for providing all necessary facilities and the hospitality is remarkable. Its good to have more and more SITs and i wish SIT will grow in to a biggest event at global level.
Looking forward to hear on the upcoming SITs in Bengaluru & Mumbai.
