At SUSECON this year (May 18-20, 2021), we want you to be inspired by the possibilities of your digital transformation. Whether you are just getting started or are mature in your journey, the sky is no longer the limit. Turn inspiration into reality with technical content and roadmaps that help you take advantage of current technologies.

SAP understands this dynamic and has built SAP S/4HANA to simplify the complexity of your digital transformation.  It is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system with built-in Intelligent Technologies, including AI, Machine Learning, and Advanced Analytics. And most SAP customers are running SAP S/4HANA on SUSE Linux Enterprise for SAP applications.

We are very delighted to welcome SAP as cornerstone sponsor @ SUSECON
