My time at SAP’s SAPPHIRE conference has become a once in a life time experience, it was extraordinary. Entering the show floor I was shocked and surprised, but it was phenomenal. Especially the Octagon! In my head, I thought it wouldn’t be that big, but seeing it with my own eyes was amazing! The Octagon had a demo program about SAP’s software and how it can help track certain things like planes, ships and wheat fields. SAP’s program helps by notifying you if the plane needs to take a detour because of a storm or the wheat field needs more water depending on the weather. It would help notify you beforehand. Even before I came to the convention I thought SAP was just a global software company. But after SAPPHIRE my knowledge of SAP expanded. Meeting with company partners of SAP and SAP customers like Vistex. When I met with Denise Broady and Adam Smiley iallowed me to realize that everyone had a different background and most of them didn’t expect to be part of SAP.
While walking around I found out that SAP doesn’t only help large businesses but smaller businesses as well. I learned that even companies that don’t have to do with technology can still benefit from SAP’s software. All of the information available through S/4HANA and stored in the Cloud has allowed us to actually think about how this software will help companies and even inspire students like me. People in the business world always find other people to work with because not everyone is an expert in a specific field of knowledge. One thing that I had learned from SAPPHIRE would be to do what you love most, do something you’re passionate about and can wake up every morning excited to do.
In the end, I met some friendly people and gained a lot of information.
