On April 9th, 2015 we held an exclusive event for the SAP HANA LinkedIn Group Community focusing on HANA4IoT Demos and still more demos.   We had approximately 121 attendees online and we filled to capacity at the Palo Alto COIL center with   38 attendees, our total capacity is 42.

The event started with a phenomenal introduction to IoT by Michael Lynch from SAP. Michael is Mr. IoT for the Americas and leads everything IoT for SAP Americas.



We want to thank everyone that attended physically, remotely even those that will be viewing the event recordings and providing us their valuable feedback.

We want to thank everyone who made this ‘SAP HANA4IoT-UNPLUGGED’ event possible. Special thanks go to Kathy Tan and Scott Feldman for making all this possible both socially and physically. Our thanks to Cisco’s Rick Speyer and Reesha Dedhia for sponsoring and connecting the event globally in a seamless manner. Most of all we want to thank our speakers  Michael Lynch with SAP for the excellent  Key Note, Hari Guleria with Pridevel for laying the building the IoT Business case foundation, followed by Brian Vaughan with WWT  for the Mining demo, Ravi Pusuluri and Arda Turhan  with Nevotek for the Telecom demo,  Doug Wilson with Cisco for the DISE Demo, Alex Bates with MTell for the Oil & Gas Demo and Nikhil Monghia with SAP for the exceptional zero -PPT and 100% vending machine demo.
