September is always an exciting time for San Francisco, but this year is bringing some changes. The bad news is that many of the San Francisco Fleet Week activities have been scaled back due to sequestration funding cuts. The good news is that SAP Big Data Week is this upcoming September 7-13! And while we may not have an aircraft carrier, we will be unveiling the Big Data Express.
Check out a sneak peak of the Big Data Bus from our Vine video preview.
The Big Data Express is a mobile showcase of SAP’s Big Data solutions that is staffed by experts and packed with demos – all ready to show you what SAP is doing to help our customers bring the innovations of “Big Data” into their organizations. With Big Data, every employee can be armed with more useful and timely information in order to make every business process a “real-time” opportunity. These opportunities include engaging customers immediately with a compelling offer, avoiding an unplanned maintenance situation, and detecting and avoiding business risks such as fraud.
