From the Global SAP Partner Summit to Bill McDermott’s and Hasso Plattner’s opening keynotes and a final close with motivational guests Kobe Bryant and Derek Jeter, opportunities to network stayed strong throughout the entire 2017 SAPPHIRE NOW & ASUG Annual Conference!

Starting with the Global Partner Summit, Partners from SAP could connect, exchange ideas and get insights on the new roadmap for S/4 HANA. Especially in the Utilities Industry, Natuvion sees a huge opportunity in bettering engagement with customers, together with SAP, to reach maximum satisfaction in migrating to the new platform whether it is in the cloud or on premise with the Array of products and services within transformation, analytics, security or utilities Natuvion has to offer.

The second day is when the excitement was truly able to begin. Appointments were made with current and potential customers and future partners that were just as motivated to give Natuvion the right information and boost needed to get the right start in the US market. These discussions became even more real throughout the event as multiple chances were offered to continue discussions and exchange ideas.

The following days started off with the legendary co-founder of SAP, Hasso Plattner, discussing where S/4 HANA stands and where it has taken us in just the last year. He also discussed in which direction S/4 HANA continues to grow, and that is up, in the cloud! Natuvion also attended many sessions that revolved around S/4 HANA and took as much out of it as possible to stay up to date on one of the bestselling products in SAP history. Not only is S/4 HANA a huge evolution to the entire digital transformation of the Utilities Industry, it also sets the stage for companies like Natuvion to offer their innovative products for customers to protect their data and transform their business.

Finally, on the last day, the event came to a close with a well performed  concert, by Muse, while closing up the last conversations with new and old connections that were made during the event.

We had a wonderful time exchanging ideas with SAP employees as well as partners and customers. Thank you SAP, ASUG & The Eventful Group for hosting another memorable SAPPHIRENOW/ASUG Conference for 2017! We are looking forward to next year!
