If you made it to the SAP SapphireNOW/ASUG convention in Orlando no doubt you'll recall the variety of presentations our HP teams gave on the variety of SAP topics such as Cloud Services for SAP, SAP HANA, and Mobility for SAP solutions. And those presentations were so good you may be tempted to think “that was it for this year” don’t! We've got a lot more to tell you about! So mark your calendar, get your tickets and join us for more of our expert SAP sessions at this year’s HP Discover conference. Dig in and continue the conversations that you began at SAP Sapphire. Extend your thinking and challenge the possibilities that your SAP environment can provide to your compnay. Plan on attending any number of HP SAP sessions and dialogue with our teams. Meet new acquaintances and renew recently made friendships with us!
Becuase of travel or distance or any number of other reasons, some of you have become accustom to following us on line - since I'm writing this on line I think that's great! - So, if you're doing so, you can probably see that we’re building on the SAP topics we presented at Sapphire with even more sessions. We plan on having even more expertise on-hand to discuss SAP solutions with you, and the broad scope of HP solutions (from Hardware to Software to Services and back!) that will help take your planning deeper.
Maybe you attended SAP Sapphire with us, or perhaps this will be your first opportunity to interface with us, either way you may be asking "where do I start?" Fair question. Below I've listed a handful of the SAP Services-related sessions we’d encourage you to attend. By going online and registering for your sessions you can chose even more. If you’re unable to join us in Las Vegas this year in person, I'd encourage you to follow our teams on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/HPEnterpriseServices); or tweet a new song by following “@HPDiscover”, or go on-line to HP.COM and contact us to find out more about our services aimed at helping you run the most advanced bullet-proof SAP systems available.
Session Title BB2902
Building the foundation for disruptive change: Value-driven roadmaps for the “Business of IT”
Disruptive technologies such as cloud and mobile computing are revolutionizing the ubiquity of IT, yet many companies are not able to leverage all the opportunities they offer. Many enterprises have still not evolved their application development and –operations capabilities into a standardized and tools-enabled framework. Standardized processes simplify execution, yield fewer errors, and empower staff to focus on innovative efforts and less on repetitive tasks. While this vision is compelling, why are so few companies able to reach it? We will share how to leverage our experiences, “how” to build a proper roadmap and understand some of the pivotal interdependencies in deploying some of the best practice ALM toolsets, and how to identify and establish the value propositions for such transformation initiatives.
Session Title TB3165
Transform your SAP landscape: a hybrid cloud deployment strategy from HP
Transform your SAP landscape into an adaptive, scalable and optimized business enabler. HP’s hybrid cloud strategy includes hosted or on-premise private cloud landscapes, providing choice in deploying your SAP applications. Learn how to bridge traditional IT with private and public cloud solutions using HP’s hybrid cloud strategy.
Session Title TB2638
The SAP Mobile Enterprise Application Platform – optimizing mobile applications connected to corporate systems
This technical session will discuss the SAP SUP methods and technologies available to connect mobile applications back to corporate systems and business processes. We will discuss the mobilization of existing applications, remote application connectors and integrating mobile clients into back-end systems. The discussion will highlight HP’s Enterprise Mobility Services for SAP Applications.
To learn about more SAP-related sessions at HP Discover I’d recommend Phil Mclean’s blog “Key SAP Sessions at HP Discover 2012”. There’s also new (and excellent) blog our the SAP team put together titled “Are you an SAP customer with your head in the cloud?” which highlights many of the cloud services questions and answers for audiences who attended Sapphire and are looking to attend Discover.
Before I forget, HP Discover 2012 is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about our SAP Benchmarking record; to discuss Run SAP implementation with members of the teams who were the 2012 Run SAP Partner of the Year Pinnacle Award winners; and meet various team members of our SAP Pinnacle Award finalists for “Global Technology Partner” & “Global Software Solution Partner” of the year awards.
Wrapping up this conversation I'd have to say that, from SAP SapphireNOW & ASUG to HP Discover 2012, we've got a lot to talk about so join us, continue the conversation!
