The choice of SAPPHIRE sessions is yours, but we’d like to help you make it


By Hans-Ulrich Schaller


One thousand eight hundred and three.  That’s the number of items currently in the SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG 2015 session catalog.  Very impressive. Quite daunting, too, especially since the event only lasts three days.  There’s no way you can’t fit them all in. So how do you make sure the sessions you select will provide timely, relevant information you can use during and after the event to enhance your IT and SAP environment?

Sapphire 2.jpgI’d like to provide some guidance in that area by giving you an overview of what HP is presenting at the event. As one of SAP’s oldest and most trusted partners, HP offers sessions that address key areas of the entire SAP HANA lifecycle, while providing proven strategies and approaches that help you achieve superior results.  


One day at a time
HP is presenting seventeen sessions at the event – too many to cover in one blog. So I will divide them up according to three days of SAPPHIRE. Here are the highlights of Day 1 – Tuesday, May 5. Click on the session name to access more information in the SAPPHIRE Session Catalog.
