SAPPHIRE NOW 2018 & ASUG Annual Conference
On June 5–7, SAP hosted its annual business technology conference, SAPPHIRE NOW, in Orlando, Florida. SAP and our partners have come together and created the largest and most engaging on-site SAP event, with a massive show floor and numerous ongoing live sessions. Now that this memorable three-day event is over, we would like to recap and highlight some of the key topics for you.
The event started with CEO Bill McDermott’s keynote speech, where, together with guests, he highlighted SAP’s global strategy to create intelligent enterprises that can fuel economies, lift societies, and sustain our environment with a new holistic offering, SAP C/4HANA, the ultimate reinvention of CRM.
Hasso Plattner, SAP co-founder and chairman of the supervisory board, went forward in his keynote speech to elaborate on the meaning of the intelligent enterprise. With innovation prompted by SAP S/4HANA, SAP Leonardo technologies, and now enriched with SAP C/4HANA, any organization can have all the needed solutions to become a truly intelligent enterprise.
Beside the keynotes, there are also more replays available and we would like to draw your attention especially to the Best-Run Theater replays to take a deeper dive into the themes and topics from each day’s keynote in the General Session Theater. These must-see keynotes feature influential speakers from the SAP leadership team, strategic partners, and some of SAP’s largest customers.
In addition, representatives from the SAP Knowledge and Education team held a variety of sessions and demonstrations, with focus on training, skill development, software user adoption, and more – topics that truly resonated with our customers and partners in times of rapidly evolving software and cloud solutions. In these sessions, you could learn more about how to develop and keep your technical skills current with digital learning through offerings such as the openSAP platform, SAP Learning Hub, SAP Live Class, SAP Certification, and the SAP Enable Now solution, as well as how to increase software user adoption.

We hope that SAPPHIRE NOW was a memorable and valuable experience for everyone attending either onsite or virtually; filled with new and important information, solutions and discussions.
