    Kristen Dennis
    Visibility: Open to anyone

      I want to highlight a few of the ASUG Annual Conference, Pre-conference sessions that you should consider registering for!!!


      The first is a BYOD Hands-on session ( SAP UI5 and oData )


      Hands-On Predictive Modeling and Application Development Using SAP HANA Predictive Analysis Library (PAL) and R

      Monday, May 4, 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

      $495.00 ASUG Member/$595.00 Non-Member


      Build valuable predictive models and learn how to expose them in an SAP UI5 application. This hands-on session will allow you to easily create and deploy models using SAP HANA PAL and R. You will use easy-to-understand data and advanced algorithms to cluster, find associations, and create forecasts and predictions. You will create procedures using flow graphs in the application function modeler that combine PAL, R, and data manipulation functions.


      This is a hands-on session. Attendees must bring their own device to participate.

      And the other Pre-Conference session, not Hands On, of interest is on the hottest topic - Internet of Things!!!!!!

      Internet of Things (IoT) – Transformation Beyond the Hype 

      Monday, May 4, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

      $595.00 ASUG Member/$695.00 Non-Member


      The marketing hype around the Internet of Things (IoT) is deafening and is almost becoming counterproductive. Yet, there is no question that IoT is going to change the way we live and work. The most visible aspect of this technology is certainly on the consumer side with wearables – one just needs to look at the increasing number of devices we charge every night at home and connect to our family Wi-Fi to get a glimpse of the furious pace at which it is evolving. However, IoT is also on track to change the way enterprises are conducting business. The ubiquity of connected devices and sensors is not just going to improve the efficiency of our current business models – it is creating new opportunities. But with opportunities come challenges. IoT is impacting many areas, from consumer privacy to billing, to simply keeping your core enterprise applications up and running when they get hit with the overwhelming amount of data generated by connected devices.


      During this full-day session, speakers will cut through the hype and dive right into how companies are already benefiting from these new technologies. They will steer the conversation from the usual focal point of these shiny new devices to explore their impact on the enterprise software landscape. The presenters will also discuss the technical and other challenges that are standing in the way of your company fully embracing IoT. There will also be roundtable discussions on various IoT topics and you will be given the opportunity to raise your questions, concerns, doubts, and get direct answers from the speakers.


      This session will lay the foundation for an ASUG IoT community that will track the Internet of Things and support the journey of SAP professionals in this area.


      See you in Orlando!!!
