WHERE Do You Reimagine the Future?
The answer is SAPPHIRE NOW!

Altogether, we delivered 996 sessions delivered and reached 792M people worldwide!
If you didn’t get the chance to attend SAPPHIRE NOW this year, read on to find out all the highlights and the latest on SAP HANA!
Over the course of the 3 days, attendees heard Bill McDermott followed by Bernd Leukert deliver SAP’s vision of the Intelligent Enterprise. Not only did they bring innovation to life but demonstrated a clear pathway to help businesses get there. Partners and customers joined our executives on the keynote stage, including Michael Dell, Wladimir Klitchko, Diane Green from Google and Diane Bryant from Intel. Founder and Chairman, Hasso Plattner highlighted how we are building on SAP HANA, and taking the next step with intelligent technologies and applications. On the last day, Derek Jeter and Kobe Bryant left the audience energized and inspired through their lessons on leadership, motivation, and success. Here are a few of my favorite replays:
