The attractive program brought together business and science with the motto “Smart Enterprise Engineering”. The scientific program comprised 12 tracks and extended over all three days. The business program concentrated on the first two days. Day 1 (Wednesday, March 4, 2015) focused on the “Digitization in Small and Medium-sized Companies”. Day 2 (Thursday, March 5, 2015) had the motto “Digital Business Models”.
SAP has been the main gold sponsor for this conference for many years. In 2015, SAP again acted as one of the main sponsors of the conference. The sponsoring package included, amongst other things, the keynote, presence in the conference program and advertising materials, free conference tickets, and a booth in the exhibition area.
