SAPPHIRE is the largest customer event for SAP and we have an entire day dedicated to High Tech. The High Tech Forum is on Wednesday May 15th, Forum D with a 500 seat theater, 2 demo theaters, 2 micro forum discussion sites and meeting space.
Innovation is the driving force for high tech companies. But today’s high tech “toys” are yesterday’s news very quickly. So how do you keep up with the ever increasing pace of innovation and manage the complexity of products and solutions in your global ecosystem?
Our keynote speaker - Tony Pagliarulo, COO/SVP of EMC will be talking about Transforming Business with an Innovation-Driven Enterprise. In the presentation theater hear from leading high tech customers such as Lexmark, Lenovo, HP, Applied Micro Circuits, EMC and IGT, who will be talking about the impact SAP solutions have in the areas of Big Data, Analytics and Supply Chain in their companies. In the Panel session listen to Microsoft, Lexmark and eBay discuss how they are creating new revenue streams through usage, subscription and service based offerings.
In the micro forum theaters come and discuss with key customers Lenovo, Varian Medical, EMC, Smart Modular, Flextronics and Bose – topics which include How to Transform Selling to Profitable selling, Enterprise Mobility, Product Lifecycle Management, Production and Fulfillment integration, a S&OP Implementation, Procure to Pay Process and Web selling.
In the demo theater, see firsthand SAPs new innovations for High Tech and see how much simpler product innovation can be when processes are integrated and tools like 3D visualization, mobility and analytics become an integral part of the process. Meeting Compliance Challenges, Sales and Operations Planning in real time, Supply Chain Response Management, 360 Customer, Analytics, Mobile Apps and Predictive Analytics are only a few of the demos that will be shown.
