SAP Utilities Headline News – July Issue 2021
Dear Utilities Community,
Welcome to the fourth issue of our newsletter this year. Once again, it contains many exciting topics about the utilities industry.
Our International SAP Conference for Utilities took place at the end of May and was a great success. The conference attracted 925 attendees from over 50 countries worldwide and the conference agenda was packed with 165 expert speakers and 48 customer presentations. Since we held our event virtually, all presentations are now available on demand and free of charge on our website.
SAPPHIRE NOW in June also featured presentations from our utilities customers Enbridge, FARYS, and Pacific Gas & Electric, who shared the benefits of SAP S/4HANA Utilities, an intelligent water platform and more.
The SAP for Utilities 2021 will take place in San Diego, US from October 17-19 as a hybrid event, where attendees can join in person or virtually.
We are pleased to announce that following its success last year, our SAP Partner Utility Week will once again take place from November 15-19, 2021.
