What topics are we looking for? 

This year, the SAP TechEd team has provided seven areas of focus to guide your submissions.

INTEGRATION OUT-OF-THE-BOX

Integration will soon account for 50% of the time and cost of building a digital platform. If you’re looking to deploy SAP solutions across the enterprise, there are tips and tricks available to help you get there faster. Find out how you can use open API’s, master data management, and interoperability to realize the full potential of the intelligent enterprise, and get ready to extend your SAP system capabilities to third-party solutions or future SAP offerings.

NEXT-GEN DATA MANAGEMENT

You need the ability to access insights and act on high-quality data wherever it resides. SAP enables simplified, secure, and governed enterprise-class applications and analytics across a heterogeneous data landscape. If you work with distributed data management in the cloud; enterprise data lakes; automated data preparation; or unified, real-time, out-of-the-box analytics, these journeys will support your goals. Discover new insights, simplify data management, and get ready for compliance.

CLOUD-NATIVE ARCHITECTURES

To run seamlessly in the cloud, you need to detach the application from the infrastructure. The open source community is enabling applications to operate and port seamlessly across multiple clouds and on-premise deployments through SAP technologies. This track explores containers, DevOps, development tools, an “API-first” architecture, and cloud platforms. Find out how you can become more agile now and reduce TCO through multitenancy, elasticity, and resource sharing.

CONSUMER-GRADE EXPERIENCE

Enterprise users expect their interactions with working applications to be as enjoyable as that of consumer sites. SAP offers humanized experience with conversational UI and Natural Language Processing.  Technicians working with digital platforms, voice and chatbots, VR and AR will find the insights they need in this track.

APPLIED INTELLIGENCE

Innovative technologies have become operational. This has extended enterprise technology skills into the realm of machine learning, IoT, and blockchain. But these technologies must be applied to and embedded within enterprise applications to deliver value and unleash the power of SAP analytics. Get the answers to how you can make digital transformation a reality for your team.

SECURITY BY DEFAULT

Security is a top-of-mind concern and embedded within systems from inception. If cybersecurity in application design or if data protection and privacy  are your driving concerns, you’ll find the answers you need in these sessions. Learn about threat mitigation, built-in security awareness, and compliance with the latest data privacy regulations.

EXPLORE SAP

The SAP technology portfolio is broad and comprehensive. Our solutions provide the technology and services to simplify how to run your enterprise, IT infrastructure, or line of business. Understanding how best to plan your SAP deployments both now and in the future can be a daunting task in and of itself. Learn the ins and outs of SAP’s solution strategy and services, get your feet wet with what’s new and unexplored, or see the road map you need to plan for tomorrow.
