SAP Geographical Enablement Framework Customer Engagement Workshop


SAP has recently announced the availability of the SAP Geographical Enablement Framework. This framework works as the foundation to extend business data with geometric attributes for SAP Business Suite applications. As a framework leveraging the spatial capabilities inherent in SAP HANA, it enables organizations to develop geospatially enriched business data, and make them accessible from within SAP applications as well as external GIS (geographical information system) systems. Please see SAP Newsroom article for more details.

As part of our customer engagement initiative, we are happy to offer a 2-3 day workshop about the product’s strategy, capabilities, and architecture, along with how to customize/extend the framework to meet your needs. A detailed agenda will follow, which might include presentations, free training, testing, and an interactive design thinking workshop.


  • SAP customers with a technical knowledge of the SAP Business Suite applications and GIS domain expertise.
  • SAP customers with a business understanding of use cases for geo-enabling business processes


  • Be among the first ones to learn and obtain deeper understanding about the product.
  • Get free training before product’s official training comes out.
  • Obtain hands-on experience with the product and test latest features.
  • Provide feedback and influence the product’s roadmap.
  • It is a unique opportunity to spend time with SAP experts and product development team.
  • Network with peer companies with similar needs.
  • The workshop is free of charge (only travel expenses need to be covered by participants).
