Your UK & Ireland SAP User Group and SAP Service & Support have teamed together to run our Optimising Your SAP Symposium.

The morning will consist of the following keynote sessions:

Neil Start from Rapid ERP will present Moving from Good to Great – how to optimise your current SAP Solution and build a platform for future innovation. This keynote session looks at ways to get more from an existing SAP solution – simplifying user experience, delivering faster innovation and enhancements, optimising support and maintenance - and the platform that helps make this possible, SAP Solution Manager.  We’ll also take a look at upcoming innovations in Solution Manager 7.2 and how we can establish a foundation for a future migration to the next generation Business Suite, SAP S/4 HANA.

Mark Darbyshire from SAP UKI will deliver the session S/4HANA - Simplifying the Business and Getting More Done. S4HANA provides the means to further simplify businesses and their operations to run more efficiently and to run in less time. This plenary explores that with examples.

Chris Osborne, Head of Business Transformation Services will deliver the session Reduce complexity and Run Simple with SAP Service and Support. Chris will position the new organisation of Global Service and Support and how this will impact customers in the UKI. He will explain how we have Simplified the engagement model and how SAP Service and Support will focus on Innovations and adding value to customers.
