We are pleased to invite you to the 2014 SAP Middleware webcast series starting on April 30th.

These informative public webcasts are sponsored by SAP and hosted by SAPInsider and will showcase the advantages of SAP Middleware offerings that build on the trusted SAP NetWeaver technologies and leverage SAP HANA and the cloud.

Whether it is Intelligent Business Operations, the ability to deliver on amazing user experiences, security in the age of Big Data, or developing next generation apps that are meant for a cloud and in-memory world, this webinar series will prime you for taking the next step to enhance your business.

During this series, you’ll:

• Hear SAP senior strategists and technology experts articulate new and emerging solutions, as well as best IT and business practices that address the needs and challenges of our times.

• Discover how new innovations and capabilities from SAP can transform and grow your business.

• Hear SAP customer stories about how they are leveraging these capabilities for enhanced success.

UPCOMING: Part 5 - August 27, 2014: Steer your business operations with real-time visibility gained with SAP Operational Process Intelligence

The initial promise of Business Process Management (BPM) was that it would enable our businesses to be managed holistically through business process models that were implemented in software. The vision was enticing, but the reality – as always – is more complex. The business reality of restricted budgets, organizational change complexity, M&A activity and more means that processes will always be implemented using patchworks of systems.

SAP Operational Process Intelligence platforms offer a practical, pragmatic way forward. Working side-by-side with existing systems, they provide real-time insights into end-to-end business process health and performance, and they help operations managers and leaders to make quick, evidence-based decisions to manage risks and tackle problems.

The webinar will also include a demo of how SAP provides real-time intelligence across end-to-end processes with its solution SAP Operational Process Intelligence powered by SAP HANA.

Attend this webinar to learn how to: 

• Better understand the business value of Operational Process Intelligence 

• Explore some likely use cases for the technology 

• Gain real-time insights into your business operations across complex, heterogeneous system landscapes

• Better navigate through daily operations by knowing the most critical situations in real-time and prioritizing workloads accordingly

UPCOMING: Part 6- September 10, 2014: The API perfect storm: how to ride the wave of the digital economy with simplification

Think back a few decades and API was purely a geek term related to developers and software architects – how times have changed. Today we see APIs as the key enabler for anything a company wants to sell such as products & services. Think about the business models of NetFlix, Amazon Web Services, Google, Fitbit, etc. As the world is moving beyond simply providing consumer information on a website to engaging consumers in new modalities including mobile applications, social media, wearables, and other specialized user interfaces, the challenges of providing simple access in a secure and scalable manner has created a perfect storm that breaks the traditional IT governance models. Join SAP to understand how provisioning scalable and secure APIs can unlock your digital assets to new developer ecosystems and support new business innovations, while at the same time leveraging out-of-the-box integrations with your SAP and non-SAP systems. 

Attend this webinar to learn: 

• What the API economy means to SAP & its Ecosystem

• How you can scale and secure the access to your back-end systems to support new digital channels and consumer-oriented applications

• How you can reuse non-SAP and SAP back-end systems together to support new consumer facing use cases with a standards-based approach

• What SAP’s strategy is and what key capabilities will be introduced in this exciting new area of API management

This is where the Intelligent Business Operations offering powered by SAP HANA comes in.”

DELIVERED: Part 2: How to Automate Your IT Operations with a Software Defined Data

Evolving business demands necessitate a new way of managing data centers and enterprise IT operations. They have been traditionally managed with manual processes which take up too much time, introduce opportunity for errors, and distracts strategic resources from more important projects. The advent of in-memory and cloud technologies has enabled SAP customers to move toward an approach best described by the term: software defined data center (SDDC).

By leveraging SDDC, SAP customers can automate provisioning, operation, maintenance, optimization and auto-correction capabilities. SDDC provides SAP customers the same level of automation for your SAP landscapes that you are able to achieve at the infrastructure level with solutions from VMware, IBM, Cisco and others.

This webcast will walk you through:

• Benefits of automation while transitioning to cloud based infrastructures

• How to gain insight into end-to-end automated processes for daily IT operation requirements with higher accuracy and visibility

• The impact of SAP’s software defined data center approach to system agility, operational costs, and business growth
