Try not to get overexcited and interrupt groups of co-workers wherever you find them: taking coffee breaks, waiting for elevators, or attending team meetings. I get it. You might be a bit eager to spread the news. You need just 2-3 days and then you’ll have the answers to optimize your company’s IT plans and business goals for the future.
Yet this news may be met with no more reaction than a head nod or a thumbs up from your cool and collected co-workers already familiar with an SAP Solution Manager Education Summit (SolEd). It’s the annual premiere education and networking event for SAP Solution Manager.
Consider the Possibilities for Getting Smart with SolEd
SolEd 2019 focuses on innovation in SAP application lifecycle management. How can this help you on your journey in becoming an intelligent enterprise? You get the latest insights from subject matter experts and peers that translate into practical knowledge to take with you. For example:
- Focused Build for SAP Solution Manager is included in the regular SAP Solution Manager usage rights, starting January 1, 2020. What if you could get more instruction about how might this help you with your SAP S/4HANA implementation or conversion project?
- Maybe you’ve read SAP Cloud ALM supports the entire lifecycle of all cloud solutions from SAP. What if you could have an interactive conversation about how the roles of project manager, business expert, configuration expert, test coordinator, and release manager take a fit-to-standard cloud solution from onboarding to deployment?
- If your focus is on strategic planning, it’s understandably important to stay informed about managing cloud, hybrid, and on-premise solutions going forward. What if you could also learn how different options have worked for other customers and compare customers’ experiences to your specific requirements?
Answers await at SolEd 2019. Not only will you experience future-focused keynote speeches, but also specific breakout sessions, demos, one-on-one consultations, and opportunities to network with peers who use SAP Solution Manager and SAP Cloud ALM. It’s a win-win situation. You become smarter and your business profits from your learnedness.
