HPE Guru Bar at SAP SAPPHIRE 2017: High on SAP expertise. Way low on cost

By Drew Iacone

How much would you pay for expertise that has the proven ability to help you define, implement, maintain and enhance the ideal SAP solution for your enterprise? Not just a good solution but THE perfect one that makes it so much easier to compete, thrive, and achieve your business goals.

Billable-quality expertise at a non-billable rate
No matter what your answer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise can deliver all that for less. In most cases, for exactly $0 – right at the Guru Bar, HPE Booth #456 at SAP SAPPHIRE 2107. We call it billable-quality expertise at a non-billable rate. Let me explain.

 The depth of SAP expertise and experience at HPE is unmatched. We started building it with the first SAP applications back in the 1990s. We continue to add to it today with S/4 HANA. HPE expertise extends to all solutions that can make a business “run live” - In memory computing, big data, transactional/analytical, private cloud, IoT and more. Our experts also have an in-depth understanding of all the technologies needed to craft a superior solution – from servers to storage to switches to services. Most important, they know how to put all of that together to create exactly what you’ve been looking for. They have done it successfully for hundreds of customers. They’ll do it for you.

We’ll have over 25 Gurus at the Bar with more than 350 years of combined experience. If you’d like a sample of what they can deliver, check out the blogs that some of them have written for the event:

• Kate O’Neill: OVERwhelmed at SAPPHIRE? Talk to us. We’ll UNDERstand. – Helping you respond to large-scale business processing and real-time analytics challenges

Non-billable but transferable
The Guru Bar at SAP SAPPHIRE isn’t the only place to get HPE’s billable quality expertise and advice at a non-billable rate. It is also included in our pre-sales activities for SAP solutions. So if you can’t come to us at SAPPHIRE, we’ll be happy to bring it directly to you.
