I always felt that SAP SAPPHIRE 2017 was going to be a uniquely exciting event. Today’s announcement by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) proves that my feeling was absolutely spot on.

What HPE has done is extend our solutions for SAP Applications from the Digital Core to the Intelligent Edge, empowering enterprises with real-time insight from vast amounts of data, thereby allowing them to accelerate business processes. The solutions combine infrastructure, software, and services to create complete solutions that make the goal of “run live” more accessible than ever before.
