A solid base to build your SAP SAPPHIRE 2107 agenda: HPE sessions and activities

By Urs Renggli

What an event! As usual, SAP SAPPHIRE brings together information and activities that would otherwise take you months to experience and/or acquire. But by offering so many choices, the event increases the chances that you might miss sessions that might be perfect for you. Hard to be in multiple places at once, right? We know that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is offering “can’t miss” content. Whether you are interested in business continuity; the “Right Mix” to create your Hybrid Cloud; moving to SAP S/4HANA faster, more easily and more affordably; IoT; the latest in in memory; and more, you’ll find the resources you need to get the answers you want.

 So to be sure you make room for our activities, here’s a list of suggested “must dos” for the event.

You’ll be dealing with experts with specialized knowledge and expertise, plus over 350 years of combined experience with HPE – SAP solutions. Check out the blogs written by Gurus who will be staffing the Bar:
