If so, stop by our SAP Innovation Lounge (and if not, there is still time to register!) New this year, the SAP team will be showcasing a fun, interactive area we are calling the SAP Innovation Lounge, with the goal of allowing our customers to experience our unique vision for the industry. We will be working in the areas of IoT, Cloud, Work and Asset Management, Customer Engagement, and including a guest appearance by the SAP Digital Boardroom.
Here are a few highlights planned from this area of the conference:
SAP4U Steps for Charity Challenge: Utilities are all about power, motion, and serving communities across North America. As such, we wanted to come together as an industry and give back to the Southern California community for hosting us at SAP4U. We have set the goal of walking 2.11 million steps over our 2 day conference, in supporting local charity of choice, 2-1-1 San Diego. If we – as an industry – can hit this goal, SAP will donate $10,000 to this great cause. Be sure to register your wearable device, or download Jawbone’s mobile app to track your activity upon arrival to the conference! Information will be provided at registration.
SAP Power Play: The ‘Run Live’ Challenge Are you better than your fellow utility brethren? Experience the Power Play ‘Run Live’ Challenge to find out. This will be a hands on, timed obstacle course, utilizing IoT components and connected devices. A score board will be maintained, so you will instantly be able to see how you stack up against industry colleagues. Prizes will be awarded to those most nimble!
