Matthew Riches from Agility Works will present S/4HANA the pragmatic approach.

For customers that currently use SAP as their core ERP system S/4HANA is an item that has been pushed onto the agenda of many IT organisations. However unfortunately there still exists a huge amount of confusion and misunderstanding surrounding what S/4HANA is and what a real world S/4HANA project should look like.

In this session Matthew will discuss how, rather than being the final destination, the implementation of S/4HANA is simply a step on the journey to providing Business Systems that are fit for purpose in an ever changing world. Matthew will provide a whistle stop tour of some of the other steps on the journey, covering topics such as Data, Business Process Control, Development and Change Management, and in doing so build up a complete, holistic, but above all practical IT roadmap. Matthew will draw upon customer specific case studies and highlight why a customer may wish to make the implementation of S/4HANA the first or conversely the final step on this journey.

Bluefin will be speaking about Enabling Business Transformation With S/4HANA. More information will be available online soon.

Martin Tenk from SAP will present The new Activate methodology enabling you to migrate to S4 faster & easier.

Antonio Freitas from Virtustream will present Running SAP S/4HANA in the Hybrid Cloud to Boost Global Efficiency. Organisations today are increasingly looking at the value of migrating mission-critical production applications to the cloud to increase flexibility and performance and reduce IT infrastructure costs – all on reliable infrastructure, with guaranteed performance SLAs, and integrated multi-level security and encryption that provides trusted environments that comply with industry and government regulations. Enterprises are now able to move all of their complex mission critical IT environments to the cloud and use hybrid cloud solutions that combine onsite private clouds with offsite public/virtual private clouds to take advantage of the flexibility, scalability and cost benefits of cloud computing. Attendees of this session will learn best practices for migrating business-critical SAP applications and S/4HANA to a multi-tenant hybrid cloud environment, and how Virtustream customers are deploying and operationalizing S/4HANA to the cloud to improve elasticity and scalability, and streamline application planning, predictive analysis, and sentiment analysis in real-time.

At the end of the day there will be an opportunity to ask the Experts your questions in an interactive Q&A Panel.
