6 Reasons You Should Attend SAP TechEd in Bangalore
As an SAP partner, it’s crucial to stay in the know about the latest technology innovations to ensure you’re truly serving as a trusted advisor for customers. Back for the first time in person since 2019, this year’s SAP TechEd Bangalore is the perfect opportunity to deepen your knowledge and sharpen your competitive edge through immersive demos, hands-on workshops, and networking.
While there are still opportunities to gain new skills by tuning in virtually, here are six added benefits of attending the November 2-3 event in person that will greatly enhance your learning experience:
- Boost your AI expertise in an immersive environment
Generative AI and large language models have the potential to revolutionize businesses. However, you must learn how to tailor solutions to specific customers’ needs while ensuring data privacy, security, and responsible AI governance.
At SAP TechEd Bangalore, you’ll get an inside look into how SAP is embedding AI into its products and overall strategy to unlock opportunities and streamline critical processes across all lines of business.
Attending the event in Bangalore will allow you to see this strategy come to life through an immersive learning experience. The in-person event boasts an enhanced show floor, including a developer garage, demo booths, and community talks. You’ll come away from the event more confident in your ability to implement generative AI solutions for your customers and a new network you can rely on for solutions and advice.
- Participate in one-on-one, experiential workshops and other valuable learning opportunities
There’s no better way to learn than by ‘doing.’ At SAP TechEd Bangalore, you can choose from over 50 hands-on workshops covering all of SAP’s key strategic topics. You’ll have the chance to learn in interactive coding sessions with expert-led exercises and in-person support.
Be sure to act fast! Full conference attendees can reserve up to three hands-on workshops, and space is limited.
Want even more opportunities to skill up? Invest in the pre-conference training day available at SAP Labs Bangalore on October 31. Participants will be among the first to dive into trending topics like the foundations of SAP BTP and building side-by-side extensions.
- See SAP products and solutions in action with demos
With over 160 demos to choose from in Bangalore, you’re bound to find sessions that align with your unique interests and the needs of your target market. For example, you can see demos on developing with generative AI and SAP solutions, enhancing cybersecurity and access management, and application development with SAP Business Technology Platform and SAP Build Apps.
Demos also allow you to explore innovations and find inspiration for better ways to support your clients’ businesses – and grow your own.
- Get a 25% discount on SAP Certification exams
As an SAP TechEd attendee this year, you can claim this discount on your next exam, making it easier to achieve SAP Certifications, validate your skills and expertise, and differentiate yourself from your competitors.
However, in-person attendees in Bangalore get the added advantage of engaging with SAP experts one-on-one to learn more about the topics covered in the exams so they can better serve their customers. Experts will also be available to answer your questions about the SAP Certification framework itself.
- Interact with customers and SAP experts
When you participate in a virtual event, you can hear what the experts have to say. But when you’re on the ground, you can interact with them. SAP will share its latest updates and enhancements, giving you insights into our latest cutting-edge technology and our roadmap so you can plan for ways to help your customers adapt and stay ahead of the competition. You can also engage with other partners and customers to see how SAP is benefiting their businesses.
And by being in Bangalore, you can ask questions, get on-the-spot answers, collaborate on best practices, and exchange new ideas.
- Network with SAP experts, partners, and peers
Of course, one of the biggest advantages of attending an in-person event is the opportunity to grow your network. Attending Celebration Night in Bangalore will allow you to meet new people and build new relationships that can contribute to your career growth and continued success.
In-person events: There is no substitute
For years, we had to find a way to stay connected and keep learning in extraordinary circumstances beyond anyone’s control. Although virtual events were a solution, you can’t replicate the energy of a show floor and the networking opportunities of an in-person event.
Exploring the value of SAP TechEd during the latest Out for Lunch podcast, Jagdish Sahasrabudhe, Chief Technology Officer for SAP’s Partner Ecosystem Success organization, spoke to the impact of being in Bangalore. “Virtual events don’t allow for much interaction or exchange of dialog,” he said. “Being in person enables partners to check in with peers and customers on the experiences they have while getting a hands-on developer experience to execute on their strategy. All of those benefits really come from being physically at an event.”
SAP TechEd Bangalore promises to be two valuable days of hands-on, immersive experiences, new connections, and interactions that lead to innovation and business growth.
