How to fit 237 years into 3 days at SAP TechEd

By Urs Renggli

Of course, “things” are important. After all, HPE is a technology company with many, many industry leading technology … well … things across the entire spectrum: servers, storage, networking, plus services. But when you really think about it, technology is a thing created by people to serve other people. That’s why HPE is spotlighting our gurus with 237 years of combined experience with both people and things at SAP TechEd, being held from September 26 – 28 in Las Vegas. And during the 3 days of the event, you’ll be able to benefit from all those years of experience in a variety of ways.


 Stop by HPE Booth 300
One of the most obvious ways is stop by HPE Booth 300 at the event. All 21 gurus will be staffing the booth at various times. They fall into three broad areas of expertise:
• Solutions for SAP
• Services for SAP
• Software for SAP

Check out the HPE SAP TechEd site for a list of the gurus and their areas of expertise. Identify the one(s) you want to speak with, and then find them at the booth. Simple. You can also sign up for 1:1 sessions with the gurus at the booth.

Attend the in-booth theater sessions
Every guru will be presenting one or more theater sessions at the HPE booth with each session being repeated a number of times during the event. Topics address a wide range of challenges, questions, and business situations – all brought to us by customers like you. Here are just a few examples:
• “HPE Visionary Innovations for the Real-time Enterprise of the Next Decade” - Learn how an HPE customer accelerated insights to move at the speed of business with HPEs market-leading portfolio of solutions optimized for HANA … and how easy it is for you to do the same
• “Big Bang vs Agile - Move to S/4HANA faster, more easily and more affordably with HPE’s agile S4in4 methodology” – See how HPE leveraged technical expertise derived from thousands of HANA implementations globally, including our own, to create an agile four phased approach to S/4 conversions aptly named S4in4.
• “Your Right Mix – HPE explores how Mission Critical Connections to your S/4 digital core influence your hybrid cloud deployment options” - Examine the importance of the roughly 10 Mission Critical Connections surrounding your S/4HANA digital core …and why they must be considered as you search for and find the “right mix” for your specific situation.

Once again, you can find the complete list of these sessions on the HPE SAP TechEd site. Check out the topics, the abstracts, and the gurus, and then select (and attend) the ones that interest you. I will also publish a blog that provides more information on all theater sessions. Look for it coming soon.

See our gurus and their solutions in action at the demo sessions
Seven demos, repeated at various times during SAP TechEd, provide a unique opportunity to see the latest work from our gurus and understand why and how they work so well. It’s the ideal combination of impressive people and some pretty amazing things. The HPE SAP TechEd site. has a list of all 7 demos. And again, I will publish a blog that provides more information each one.

Gurus in their own words

We have also asked some of the gurus to blog about what they will be presenting at the event. In fact, one has already been posted about the very impressive results achieved when HPE and SAP partner with other industry leaders like Intel, Red Hat, SUSE, and VMware. Click on the title to access: "The power of partnering on display for you at SAP TechEd."

We will tweet out notifications about all the blogs, but we also invite you to visit the HPE Alliance blog page often before and during the event to read about what’s new and what you should put on your “must see” list at SAP TechEd.

People, places and things
I will also be a SAP TechEd. Although I’m not an SAP guru, I’ll be happy to help guide you to the people at the event who can match you up with the HPE – SAP joint solutions (things) that deliver simple, agile, innovative solutions that can propel your organization further, faster.
