It’s the morning of day two at SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando, and I am overwhelmed by the sheer mass of people flocking to the exhibition aisles. As a newbie to this annual event, I now understand what all of the fuss is about. The global SAP ecosystem takes a few days to descend on the city of Orlando as if on a pilgrimage.

With an estimated 20,000 people in attendance, I find myself asking as many as… Read more

Where should I start, i.e. what to focus on first to establish a good foundation? How can I… Read more

An amazing and incredible SAPPHIRE 2011

Watching the SAP CTO, Vishal Sikka, speak at Sapphire, I lost track of the number of times I heard the words – “incredible” and “amazing”. I did not mind it too much because Vishal’s enthusiasm for all aspects of technology came through those words quite clearly. Those words also made me realize that I could them to describe my own Sapphire 2011 experience. Being an independent software vendor in the SAP eco-system, Sapphire is THE most important conference/tradeshow for Winshuttle. This is where we meet many of our incredible current and prospective customers and get to show-off our amazing product… Read more
