Innovation, Agility, and Transformation. Three words that mean so much when we look at the current state of businesses across the world and across industries. We have seen major shifts over the last year, with many companies needing to make quick switches to keep their businesses alive and profitable.

With the pandemic creating many issues over the last year and an end in sight to the global crisis, people will be looking at the world of business differently, which means more companies will start looking at digitization and their digital transformation. That is where SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) comes into play. With SAP BTP, we make it easy for companies to start on and excel every step of the way to their digital transformations. With a comprehensive business and technology platform, SAP BTP will ensure your long-term success.

The event will kick off in the SAPPHIRE NOW Studio with an inspiring Global Keynote, The Enterprise in an Age of Networks, that discussed the lessons from the past year that showed us that a new digital world is emerging in throughout every business. This new world is completely interconnected, where people, relationships, and resources come together to solve the world's greatest challenges. SAP CEO Christian Klein and thought leaders from various industries explored the innovations your business can leverage today to become a more resilient, sustainable, and intelligent enterprise.
