More than 80 customers and partners from all over Europe working with SAP HANA operation related topics joined the first SAP HANA Operation Expert Summit on May 8-9 2014 in Walldorf, Germany!
Watch the event movie and read the event summary:
Dr. Stefan Sigg, Senior Vice President of SAP HANA Product & Development kicked-off the first SAP HANA Operation Expert Summit sharing Future Trends in IT. He heartily welcomed the attendees to meet SAP Experts of the SAP HANA Development and Product Management organization at a networking dinner on Thursday evening.
The Friday was completely reserved for deep dive knowledge exchange during networking and group discussion.
Starting with the PLAN part the SAP Experts Addi Brosig, Susanne Janssen and Arne Arnold provided the participants with the newest insights on the Hardware Landscapes, Sizing and Deployment Options topics. After these three 20 minute presentation sessions, customers and partners had one full hour to discuss their experiences and raise their questions with the SAP Experts in small breakout session groups. The next main part covered the BUILD aspect of the SAP HANA Operation topic. Dr. Ralf Czekalla, Florian Mueller and Andrea Kristen used their presentation slots to give the audience an update on High Availability & Disaster Recovery, Installation & Maintenance, as well as User Management & Security. This was followed by intense discussions dedicated to collect the most important findings and to define further improvement potential.
As Heinz Wuerth pointed out during his moderation”We have a full day of interesting topics prepared for you; you will not even have time to eat! So grab something from the buffet and take it with you into the breakout room.” After the lunch break (of course there was at least one hour reserved to recover) Melanie Handreck, Matthias Kretschmer and Marion Schlotte shared the latest information about Administration & Monitoring, Performance Analysis and Development & Change Management as part of the third main topic RUN. Thereafter all participants adjourned again in the breakout groups to get the customers’ and partners’ point of view also on these topics.
The IT Experts attending the SAP HANA Operation Expert Summit really impressed us at SAP with their insights and experience. So we’d like to thank you all for participating in this event and making this happen!
