Cloudy with a Chance of Robots: SAP Cloud Platform at 2017 SAP TechEd Las Vegas

It’s that time of year again. Leaves are changing, Halloween candy is popping up in stores, and the SAP Cloud Platform team is hard at work preparing for SAP TechEd Las Vegas 2017.

This year’s event, happening from September 25-29 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, is poised to deliver a completely new, interactive and personal experience for attendees. And we have much planned for those coming to TechEd to learn and discover more about the SAP Cloud Platform. There will a wide array of booths, pods and tables staffed by SAP Cloud Platform experts in the Transform area located on the show floor. Attendees will also find three SAP Cloud Platform Interactive Tables with large-scale physical demos to explore the platform’s capabilities in-depth. These demos, featuring everything from a remotely controlled office building to a Sphero robot obstacle course challenge, are not to be missed! Read a short description of each:

  • Cozmo Demo: A sophisticated autonomous robot is ordered around a shop floor based on orders from S4/HANA but driven from Amazon Alexa voice commands.
  • SmartBuilding Demo: A scaled-down office building can be controlled remotely with voice commands to operate numerous features including elevator, solar panel angles and door/window movement. The building can send signals back to HQ indicating operational malfunctions.
  • Sphero Demo: Participants drive a Sphero robot chariot over a short obstacle course carrying previous cargo. A score board indicates participant success at delivering the goods with minimal disruption.

Over 460 SAP Cloud Platform educational sessions are planned for TechEd this year to offer guests informative and engaging content from solution experts. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the number of sessions you’re trying to cram into your schedule, fear not – SAP Cloud Platform offers 7 sample agendas, including one titled “Welcome! New to the SAP Cloud Platform?” Happy scheduling.

Don’t forget to catch a Strategy Talk with Christoph Liebig entitled “SAP Cloud Platform: Today and Tomorrow” on Tuesday at 4:30PM. Register for the SAP Leonardo Reception to learn about how SAP Cloud Platform plays a foundational role in SAP Leonardo. Lastly, be sure to visit the the AppSpace to hone your skills in building cloud applications with SAP Cloud Platform.

These sessions and events are just a sample of what to expect from SAP Cloud Platform at TechEd Las Vegas. I look forward to seeing you there.
