My session pick for SAPPHIRE NOW & ASUG conference

I have been looking at the session catalog for Sapphire Now and here is a list of the sessions that I believe are interesting, and that I’ll try to attend.

There aren’t a lot of PI/PO sessions. There is just the BT117 session about B2B capabilities. I had hoped for a Roadmap session, but I could not find any. I guess I have been hearing about the Roadmap during user group meetings, but not everyone had the chance.

The HCI cloud integration platform is interesting, so I’ll try to figure out what is going on here. It will be interesting to see how customers and partners adopt HCI. There I see PT20314, PT20318, and the Influence Session IF2369.

The last part of my program is the API management. Enterprises will be exposing data through the cloud for others to access. I would love to see the use cases for what has been exposed, and what results they have received. I think that lots of customers will be looking for a solution on how they can expose APIs of their data, so they can engage more with the customer. It will probably be some project where you will have to figure out what works and how to do it optimally.

There is also a lot of cloud stuff that could be interesting, S4/HANA is also something that I need to catch up on.

I have the following agenda, but I may not make it to all of them since SAP Mentor meetings and other stuff will be going on as well. If you are interested, please ping me or catch me when I’m walking around. I’m easy to recognize – I will be wearing the SAP Mentor Shirt number 79.

Is there any session that is of interest for an integration professional?

      Thanks for sharing! I might run into you on Thursday at BT177 session. We don't use PO/PI but I'm curious to see some sessions on the subject.

      Same here. We don't use it today, but we are interested and will probably implement it some time in the next couple years.
