What if your business had a digital core? 

The strength of a LIVE BUSINESS isn’t speed alone, but the value generated from running in real-time. How can SAP Digital Core provide your company with this power? Kevin Kimber, Head of Cloud SAP UK & Ireland will present the business benefits of SAP Digital Core, an update on customer adoption of Cloud in the UKI market and highlight current market trends and opportunities.

MIT Economist, David Autor once highlighted that “We know more than we can describe.” Imagine if retailers could measure the impact of a factor, such as weather, on sales in particular locations, allowing them to predict where demand will increase. They would be able to leverage a distributed warehouse model to move inventory to store locations where the demand was likely to be highest. A digital core helps articulate all the data your organisation has, to drive business value and growth. Kevin Kimber, Head of Cloud SAP UK & Ireland, will present SAP S/4HANA – The Digital Core portfolio, an update on customer adoption of Cloud in the UK market and highlight current market trends.

Anup Ghosh from IBM will discuss Redefining your role in the era of cloud. Cloud is the enabler that has transformed the way we do business today – and re-defines the role of IT in an organisation.  What’s next for Enterprise Architects? How do we navigate this new landscape – and what are the trends for the future?

We will be running sixteen different breakout sessions across the following four streams:
