Learn from Other SAP Users Just Like You at SAP TechEd

As ASUG Design Team members, we used member feedback to drive and shape the educational content for the sessions at SAP TechEd  2016, taking place Sept. 19–23 in Las Vegas. Please join your ASUG BI Volunteers at SAP TechEd to see how member-driven content, hands-on education, and networking with others in the technology community can help you make the most of your SAP investment.

The full agenda of the conference can be found here. Don’t forget to register for the popular hands-on sessions. Expect the best as SAP TechEd delivers instructor-led, hands-on workshops and in-depth lectures presented by SAP’s own top gurus—developers, solution and product managers, and implementation consultants—sharing their insider expertise and vision. And once again, ASUG is pleased to provide practical and technical content presented by customers and community members.
