The ASUG SAP TechEd Design Team invites you to plan submit a proposal for SAP’s premier tech conference, SAP TechEd 2018 in Las Vegas, this year October 1-5.  ASUG is partnering with SAP once again for SAP TechEd.

 

Call for proposals is now open. You are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to share your knowledge to thousands of attendees. If your submission is accepted, you will receive a complimentary, lecture-only ticket to the event.

This year SAP TechEd is now arranged in conference tracks:

INTEGRATION OUT-OF-THE-BOX

Integration will soon account for 50% of the time and cost of building a digital platform. If you’re looking to deploy SAP solutions across the enterprise, there are tips and tricks available to help you get there faster. Find out how you can use open API’s, master data management, and interoperability to realize the full potential of the intelligent enterprise, and get ready to extend your SAP system capabilities to third-party solutions or future SAP offerings.

 

Conference Track:

NEXT-GEN DATA MANAGEMENT

You need the ability to access insights and act on high-quality data wherever it resides. SAP enables simplified, secure, and governed enterprise-class applications and analytics across a heterogeneous data landscape. If you work with distributed data management in the cloud; enterprise data lakes; automated data preparation; or unified, real-time, out-of-the-box analytics, these journeys will support your goals. Discover new insights, simplify data management, and get ready for compliance.

 

Conference Track:

CLOUD-NATIVE ARCHITECTURES
To run seamlessly in the cloud, you need to detach the application from the infrastructure. The open source community is enabling applications to operate and port seamlessly across multiple clouds and on-premise deployments through SAP technologies. This track explores containers, DevOps, development tools, an “API-first” architecture, and cloud platforms. Find out how you can become more agile now and reduce TCO through multitenancy, elasticity, and resource sharing

 

Conference Track:

CONSUMER-GRADE EXPERIENCE

Enterprise users expect their interactions with working applications to be as enjoyable as that of consumer sites. SAP offers humanized experience with conversational UI and Natural Language Processing.  Technicians working with digital platforms, voice and chatbots, VR and AR will find the insights they need in this track.

 

Conference Track:

APPLIED INTELLIGENCE

Innovative technologies have become operational. This has extended enterprise technology skills into the realm of machine learning, IoT, and blockchain. But these technologies must be applied to and embedded within enterprise applications to deliver value, and unleash the power of SAP analytics. Get the answers to how you can make digital transformation a reality for your team.

 

 

Conference Track:

Why should you submit? Quote from Stephen Johannes, previous speaker:

“You don’t need to present on “newest stuff” to get accepted….It is also a great way for you to deepen your own personal understanding of a particular topic. Even though you may think you know a topic very well, it is amazing how building the presentations will force you to pick up every single detail as part of you research. ” – Stephen Johannes
