For October, we take a look at the Future of Work as the Topic of the Month.

The Groups functionality is a new capability that allows individuals with common interests to connect and engage in various activities. Within a Group, content and discussions are focused on a specific topic. We are kicking off with a couple of Groups. The first being of course our favorite little off-topic area, the Coffee Corner. The second we’ve added is dedicated to SAP TechEd! Come and join the SAP TechEd Group where you’ll be able to connect with fellow event attendees, engage with the experts, stay up to date about upcoming deep-dive sessions, and more.

While we can't predict the exact job market of the future, we know if we want to remain relevant in this ever-changing world of tech, we need a variety of 21st-century skills.
