Having attended countless SAPPHIRE events in the past, I know that finding the best or most appropriate sessions for any given topic area can be a somewhat daunting experience. So I thought I would highlight for you the best sessions and activities focused on SAP HANA Cloud solutions to help you quickly navigate your journey and locate the best sessions while at SAPPHIRE.
The first thing to note is that there are over 65 SAP HANA Cloud sessions taking place across the show floor and throughout the 4 main campuses and centers at SAPPHIRE this year. Of those, here are the ones I recommend:
