For the 13th year in a row, 2018 ASUG Annual Conference is collocated with SAPPHIRENOW.  ASUG Annual Conference is the world’s largest SAP customer-run event.  The theme is “where success meets you“.

The conference offers more than 500 customer-run educational sessions, formal and informal networking opportunities bringing together SAP customers, partners and employees and the exclusive ability to influence the future of SAP product and service direction through the ASUG Influence model.

ASUG attendees can learn the “hear and now” of SAP, including customer stories.  The BI track alone contains over 62% customer stories.  The BI and BITI tracks received hundreds of submissions, making the selection process difficult; this also ensures that top quality content was selected.

The ASUG Program Committee listed to feedback ASUG BI 2017 Survey Results – Early Review  and looked to select customer sessions and roadmaps, in line with the survey.  Sessions that will be featured at ASUG Annual Conference including

  • Latest News and Roadmap for the BI, Predictive, Lumira, Mobile BI/Analytics, SAP Analytics Cloud Analysis Office, and more
  • Customer stories of ROI of BW/4HANA
