This year’s SAP TechEd (#SAPtd) in Las Vegas showcased new products, such as SAP HANA Vora and Cloud for Analytics, which can perform many functions that used to require multiple solutions. But these solutions can’t help transform organizations into digital enterprises if no one can use them.
SAP TechEd 2015 in Las Vegas was the place to hands-on with technology and other things.
“You have the ability to manage your company in a completely different way: data-driven, real-time planning and simulation,” SAP Executive Board Member bernd.leukert told attendees during his keynote address Tuesday morning in Las Vegas. “This is why we’re here at TechEd.”
Getting In The Zone
Teaching technologists, engineers and developers to use new tools in new ways is part of why this year’s TechEd show floor featured four zones, each with its own mission:
Learn: Go there for product roadmaps, networking sessions and more.
Hang Out: Get coffee at the Fiori Café while you learn about UX or play games.
Explore: Meet SAP and partner exhibitors, as well as ASUG and others.
Build: Get hands-on with state-of-the-art code and devices.
The Build Zone was the place to get hands-on with SAPUI5, OpenUI5 and more, developing apps, fixing SAP Vehicles Network code or just using a smart vending machine. The space also included two theatres for hosting 45-minute mini-Code Jams, the IoT Lab, Developer Garage and App Space.
This word cloud shows what was trending during SAP TechEd 2015 in Las Vegas.
Keytree’s app, like all of those on the show floor, can help transform even the staunchest, most complex analog business into a digital enterprise.
Team Keytree celebrated its fourth DemoJam win at SAP Teched 2015 in Las Vegas on Wednesday night.
The night before Leukert’s keynote, Steve Lucas differentiated between the SAP that the audience had known and the SAP they should know. The president of SAP’s platform and analytics group kicked off SAP TechEd by explaining why all businesses must transform into digital enterprises -- if they haven’t already.
“bill.mcdermott challenges us at SAP to help our customers Run Simple,” Lucas said in closing. “We believe that this is the on ramp to becoming a digital enterprise.”
