One of the well spent saturday will be 22nd July 2023 at the SAP Inside track chennai. I was lucky enough to be part of the Speaking delegates.

As i was entering the Tidel Park gate, i saw there were sign boards on the SAP Inside track and the security personnel greeted me and ask if was for the event. I was surprised and was happy that every one were been well  informed and preparations have been done to avoid any inconvenience.

As i reached the main entrance there were couple of volunteers to recive and take me to the speaker registration desk and provided all the goodies and merchandise.


As the event was about to start , was happy to see many of the friends maheshkumar.palavalli ruthvik.chowdary2 @Prasath elumalai. Also met the kannanware7 who is now spearheading the kannanware firm and Raj

The event started with key note from sindhu.gangadharan speaking on the community initiativies and colloboration.

The next key note was by dharani.karthikeyan who spoke on the data analytics and also the large role the enterprises are looking for. Her message of getting your hand dirt on the analytics will be need of hour and will be one of they key take away.

The next key note was followed by @Selvakumar rajendaran.

This was followed by the Trend topics by Aravind manii from @s2integrators and Dineshkumar & Nagi Shetty from Truspeq.

After the key note we had a panel discussion with all the keynote speaker.

After my event i could not spare much time till the closing as i was heading back to Bangalore i was running late to travel back.

It was a well spent saturday meeting lot of old friends from SAP community. I was also happy that the first event which was started in 2012 with just 45 People and the next big  one was in 2014 and now it is growing in Bigway. Kudos to the organizers and sure i am seeing a potential that chennai will cross all numbers soon in terms of participation.
