Public Sector well-represented at the NA Regulated Industries Partner Summit, 2024

The recent partner summit for the North American Regulated Industries region was a resounding success, bringing together leaders from industries including Aerospace and Defense, Education, Healthcare, Public Sector (Federal, Civil, State and Local), and Utilities. This annual event is part of a series of industry planning sessions organized by the NA Industry Cloud ecosystem, and saw participation from the Public Sector IBU, supporting the location of SAP’s NA headquarters in Newtown Square, PA. You may have seen us on stage (Sally Kurtz, Chris Atkins) or contributing to meetings (Schimon Dieseler, Paul O'Sullivan, and Matt Dixon) and we’re glad to have had this forum for learning together.

Believe me that there's value in seeing the spark in someone's eyes, when sharing kinship across professional interests and future endeavors... because of attendance from over 60 partner companies and several hundred individuals, those sparks were real. Over the course of the 2-day agenda, people were buzzing between global industry addresses, deep dives into specific industries, and sessions on topics such as AI, public cloud ERP, HCM, supply chain and procurement, transformation and platform strategies. The summit also facilitated 1x1 meetings between partners, as well as networking opportunities throughout the day. "Partner to deliver technical WEALTH for customers" was our modus operandi.

One of the takeaways was our projection of the scale and addressability of the market for S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition. Supporting this point of view with keynotes and discussions that brought SAP's nuanced industry experience to the challenges and opportunities within it, and how SAP continually adapts to create better results for customers. Partners took advantage of the opportunity to meet with SAP mentors, sales teams, solution experts and key stakeholders to evaluate how their work can integrate seamlessly with SAP's. Our shared strength is the roadmap and delivery alignment we achieve, before an organization begins using our suite.

Overall, the summit added momentum to stay ahead of market needs (and requirements), with the resilient network of experts that are the foundation of happy customers who can apply themselves to excelling in their chosen field. The success of the event demonstrates the importance of knowledge-sharing within the industry and highlights the potential for innovation. Stay active between events and we’ll see you at SAPPHIRE!
