The 2019 Sapphire Now ASUG Annual Conference had a lot to offer. As a first-time attendee of this event, I was impressed by the breadth and depth of topics of discussion from the 1700+ sessions, and daily keynotes with guest speakers from SAP leadership, SAP customers, and celebrities.

With long days, countless interesting conversations and aching feet, Sapphire didn’t disappoint! The knowledge gained by hearing challenges tackled and results gained by attending sessions… Read more

This is the best place to discover the latest technologies and the best ideas out there, to bring some magic back to your company. With an estimated 20,000 people in attendance, I find myself asking as many as… Read more
