#SAPPHIRENOW Best picks for data management and SAP Data Hub sessions

When deciding what data management sessions to see at SapphireNow and ASUG I’m reminded of a quote from the original Willie Wonka movie:  “So much time and so little to see…wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.”   This year has so many wonderful sessions and data management is at the heart of many of them.

When you are building your agenda, here are some best picks for SAP Data Hub  and other sessions focused on making your data intelligent.

On Monday there is a pre-conference session on SAP Data Hub.  It costs a little extra, but you get to meet all the product management team in town, and you get hands-on experience with the product – you can still enroll – Hands-on with SAP Data Hub!

Best Run Theatre sessions are always a good place to start.   They are presented by our most senior leaders across all the lines of business.  The sessions are short, only 20 minutes, so they will get right to the point and normally provide latest announcements for their area.  Wednesday is the day for the Platform and Technologies senior development leaders to share what is new.   Here are two great choices – conveniently located back to back, so you get to sit for a few minutes!

Wednesday at 11, BR88404,  Markus Noga, Head of Technology & Innovation Machine Learning, will be speaking with HCL Technologies Shawn Brodersen on the latest developments in machine learning.

Wednesday at 11:30, BR89671,  Franz Färber, Head of Technology & Innovation Big Data, will speak with Paolo Masini fromTrenitalia about how they leverage big data and SAP Data Hub for innovation. Franz will provide the latest updates on big data solutions from SAP.

I’ve seen previews of these sessions and you don’t want to miss them!  Lots of great announcements there.

Theatre Sessions & customer panels are also a good place to hear success stories from companies leading the way with how they leverage data to their advantage. Here are two that you don’t want to miss.

Tuesday at 11, DI86563,  is a panel with companies across different industries speaking about their use of big data and SAP Data Hub.   The session will be hosted by SAP’s Amogh Umbarkar, and features Sinanudin Omerhodzic from Hartmann Group, Falko Lameter from Kaeser Kompressoren, Robyn Lyons from Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and Torsten Ammon from Redbull, all sharing their stories.

Wednesday at 12:30, DI86564, you will want to see Sebastian Wieczorek chat with Nina Reich from Daimler on innovative ways they use machine learning and the importance of data management for machine learning initiatives.

ASUG Sessions are always THE BEST place to hear from companies about what is really going on and how they are leveraging SAP.   Here are some good data-focused sessions:

Tuesday at 12, ASUG83579,  Mustafa Dadawalla from Corning Optical Communications will discuss their data governance program for their supply chain.  I’ve heard him deliver his story before. It is compelling and always drives lots of interest.

Tuesday at 1 PM, ASUG84169, Ginny Sebgers from Duke Energy will discuss self-data preparation to improve the quality of their data.

Tuesday at 3 PM, ASUG84223, Falko Lameter from Kaeser Kompressen will share their Smart Air strategy and the role of data management in transforming their business.

Wednesday at 2 PM, ASUG82702, Frank Strohmaier from BASF will discuss their journey with SAP Data Hub.

Thursday at 12 PM, ASUG83511, Douglas Maltby from General Mills will share their journey with SAP HANA and SAP Data Hub.

Thursday at 12 PM, ASUG82750, Sinanudin Omerhodzic from HARTMANN Group will discuss their data strategy and how it improves the lives of their patients. Saving lives with data, now that’s a session not to miss!

Wow – that’s a lot!  If you want details of all the SAP Data Hub and data intelligence related sessions, look no further, below is a day-by-day list of what is going on to help you update your agenda builder!
