Who says learning is not fun? Not any more with Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) @TechEd

We have witnessed another massive attendance for our techEd event @ Las Vegas with thousands learning hours through lectures, hands-on and networking sessions.  Who says learning is not fun?  Who says cloud onboarding is hard?  Who says big data projects need “big” timelines.  Not if you attended the following events.

Let me start with an event that was attended by 100+ IT executives where they recalled their childhood memories by flying “paper” planes while learning about how Rapid Deployment Solutions that can make it easier to move to the cloud.  This event was hosted by Bjoern Goerke, EVP & Corporate Officer, SAP Product & Innovation Technology, SAP SE, and with Elvira Wallis, SVP, SAP Solution and Knowledge Packaging. They are NOT alone in either flying paper plans or migrating mission critical applications to the cloud.   They had support from real “pilots” for their flight plans and to fly their paper planes.   RDS experts and partners shared experiences and real customers stories while paper planes buzzed by.

Speed up your go-live with a rapid data migration 2-hour hands-on session.    Hands-on is not all work but it is also fun.  We had a hands-on challenge and winners got the latest edition of EIM book(hot off the press)

Big data is very big in TechEd this year.  My research tells me that even if you walk randomly into a session, there is a high chance that it is a big data session. But we from RDS combined the learning with a hands-on exercise (DMM163: rapid adoption of SAP Big Data Solutions) that gave the attendees the first ever look into how easy it is load data into SAP’s very own big data solution called “SAP Customer Engagement Intelligence”.

In addition, the music show by @SAP Mentors, keynotes and demojams are simply too entertaining to be missed. Now tell me, who says learning is NOT fun??

It is NOT too late and good news is that we have one more day to ago...and we are repeating our hands-on sessions starting @8AM
