It’s clear that every SAP implementation will result in a hybrid cloud deployment as companies migrate and adopt S/4HANA. What is often not so clear is which of the hybrid cloud deployments are right for your environment.

This session examines the importance of the roughly 10 Mission Critical Connections surrounding your S/4HANA digital core …and why they must be considered as you search for and find the “right mix” for your specific situation.

Not every hybrid scenario makes business sense. While anything is possible, “anything” is not always affordable or supportable. What scenarios will actually work for you?

Speakers: Drew Iacone (VP of Global SAP Practice and Alliance, Hewlett Packard Enterprise), Roy Ferrari (Global Head of Cloud – SAP Alliance at HPE, Hewlett Packard Enterprise)

Time: 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM Pacific, 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM Eastern (USA)
