With last week's askSAP call announcements I am sure this will be a great session and Jie is good at getting all questions answered and explaining everything.

On Tuesday I am moderating Boston Properties’ Sarbanes-Oxley Journey & The BI Team’s Role in SOX Compliance

This should be interesting as I haven't seen many topics on this


Next I am conflicted - do I attend Live Data in the A&D Boardroom: L3 is Working Around Limitations in the Secure Cloud with Jason Shearer or  Designing a Design Studio Dashboard: From a Vision to Reality with fellow ASUG volunteer Shawn Cooper


Next I am also conflicted but I am leaning toward attending Timo Elliott session Your Analytics Future: Looking Beyond Tomorrow


Saving "the best for last" I am assisting Top 10 Ways to Squeeze Value from SAP BI & Analytics Investments with the great Ina Felsheim


Wednesday is workshop day, and I recommend attending this workshop on SAP Analytics Cloud with Ingo Hilgefort

Above are the contests; one year I won the prize at SAP for Utilities - it was a lot of fun.


See you there?
