On July 6th/7th 2021 we arranged a SAP MaxAttention Innovation Workshop about SAP Analytics & SAP Data Management with nine sessions driven from the service delivery organization for Middle East Europe (MEE) and South- (EMEA South) and North Europe (EMEA South). We had participants from around 40 different SAP MaxAttention customers across Europe with overall around 100 participants.
The aim of this SAP Innovation Workshop was to provide information about certain strategic- and innovative topics, which might be relevant for most of our SAP customers to move towards an Intelligent Enterprise.
The focus on day #1 was on the following topics:
analytic components as part of SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) and how they are getting deeply implemented into various end-to-end business scenarios
strategy for SAP Data Warehousing with SAP BW/4HANA and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and an outlook how SAP BW/4HANA is further getting integrated with the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud
project experience from SAP S/4HANA embedded Analytics projects and key aspects which should be relevant for all customers with similar projects
how SAP Business Technology Platform can be deployed on various Hyper Scaler Infrastructure and what benefits the SAP Business Technology Platform can offer in that context.
The focus on day #2 was on the following topics:
overview about the new scenario-based SAP MaxAttention service offerings for analytics and data management
customer story presented by Heineken and how Heineken is renewing their Analytics- and Data Management Architecture to become an Intelligent Enterprise

project experiences from a data scientist from SAP Professional Services on how Master Data Quality can be enhanced by using machine learning (ML) functionality by SAP Business Technology Platform within customer projects.
Overall the sessions of these two days SAP MaxAttention Innovation Workshop emphasized the importance of the SAP Business Technology Platform in SAP’s strategic direction, and the strong integration efforts done by SAP to integrate
