The 10th Variant Configuration Info Day 2017, which took place in Sankt Leon-Rot, was a great demonstration of what the future brings, and how we manage to remain up-to-date when everything is changing so fast. The event was fully booked, with more than 250 participants and all of them already confirmed their participation for next year’s Info Day.

The event’s keynote was held by Johann Dornbach, VP for Variant Configuration, where he showed our future direction by presenting SAP Product Strategy, Next Generation Variant Configuration, and SAP Digital Configuration Lifecycle. Our customer, then followed up with a great example of why “Variant Configuration is more complicated than reality”.

After the keynote, the topics were split into 4 big sessions.
