We are also home to a large portion of the customer support organization for our Enterprise Information Management portfolio. We started this event 11 years ago to better connect with the significant amount SAP customers located near our offices in the midwest and also educate those not as familiar with SAP with our solutions.

This year we are making the event bigger and event better including many more fantastic customer speakers and partners:

Plus, you’ll get an opportunity to get hands-on experience:

  • SAP Data Hub Workshop with Hands-On – Learn about the business challenges and customer scenarios addressed by SAP Data Hub, including a deep-dive into the major functionality areas such as governance, data pipelines, orchestration, and refinement. In this three-hour session, understand how SAP Data Hub can help your organization, perform step-by-step exercises to understand the technology, and provide feedback to the SAP development team on new and developing features.
