As we power down our laptops and mobile devices (who am I kidding, we’re always on, aren’t we?) and head into the remainder of the holiday season, I thought it would be a merry time to celebrate the amazing growth and success SAP Business Trends enjoyed in 2013. A few noteworthy highlights to consider:
MORE executive insight

SAP.info Senior Editor uta.spinger found out SAP and Vuzix teamed up to create augmented reality glasses, showing that they are not just for consumers but for manufacturers, logistics companies, and service technicians as well.
robert.merlo, vice president of marketing, SAP Visualization, says today’s growing volume of data has become nearly impossible to manage without the right tools. A better way to control this avalanche of data is to combine it with 3D graphics.
anthony.reynolds said enterprises in all industries recognize that mobile technology is a key enabler for achieving business success, yet security remains a big challenge. How is it possible to secure not only company-owned and employee-owned devices, but also corporate apps and content within an organization?
derek.klobucher believes Big Data can be a life-saver, figuratively and literally. We’ve all heard about how Big Data can save time and money, but 87 percent of federal IT officials think that real-time Big Data could save a significant number of lives each year.
The reason anthony.reynolds is so excited about the launch of SAP Mobile Platform (SMP) 3.0. is that it unites a number of legacy mobile platforms, it’s a fine example of SAP’s stance on open standards and collaboration, and it offers an awesome range of development opportunities for enterprises of all sizes in all industries to build a better future.
Listen up, fashionistas. The hottest trend coming to your world won't be found on the runway. It’s called “big data,” and david.trites said it’s going to change how the fashion industry operates in a big way.
david.trites/content knows that without fast and efficient business processes Porsche can’t deliver fast cars. So to ensure its lean manufacturing and supply logistics run smoothly, Porsche uses the SAP ERP and SAP Supply Chain Management (SAP SCM) applications.
Having attracted more than 20,000 attendees in Orlando and close to 90,000 online participants, many people rightly see SAPPHIRE NOW as a success story. But customer success stories are the backbone of the SAP annual conference’s triumph, according to derek.klobucher.
Big Data is buzz worthy right now, so shawn.burns sampled some fellow marketing colleagues across agencies, customers, partners, etc. asking them how they were approaching it. The answer in a nutshell was: “Big data? I have so many normal data challenges right now, there is no time to worry about big data.
