Preview of ASUG BI at ASUG Annual Conference #ASUG2016


Last Thursday ASUG had a sneak preview webcast (ASUG logon required) of ASUG Annual Conference and SAPPHIRENOW with ASUG award winners Kristen Dennis , Joyce Butler and Ina Felsheim


Kristen is a 10 year ASUG Volunteer covering the BITI community.  Joyce is a long-time volunteer covering the ASUG BI Community. On this webcast Ina covered SAPPHIRENOW. I’ll try to cover BITI and SAPPHIRENOW in a separate post, time permitting.


Joyce said this is where you will “find us” in the Agenda Builder.


You can access the spreadsheet shown above and the corresponding links here.  It is an Excel spreadsheet of the sessions available to you.

Joyce said we have another conference with great content for you; you told us what you wanted to see and hear and we’ve done our best to find you the very best content possible.

We have content grouped generally as Hana, Big Data, BW, BW on Hana and BI (the legend is on the right)

We will be in rooms S for South Concourse closest to the Hilton – S331 A – D

Roadmaps will be in S210 C, which is likely a larger room

Last year you had the options of eating on the concourse or in facilities close to the show floor.

  • Registration check-in also available at the Orlando International Airport (MCO) and at the Hilton
  • ASUG Hub – always a friendly face to be found
