We are very excited to launch our first ever Internet of Things (IoT) Symposium.

Maggie Buggie, SVP, Global Head of SAP Leonardo Services, Digital Business Services will deliver an SAP keynote following Sapphires announcements. Full information on this session will be online soon.

Timo Elliott, VP, Global Innovation Evangelist for SAP will present Supercharging IoT: from smart devices to intelligent processes?

Artificial intelligence and machine learning have opened up vast new opportunities for IoT data. These new technologies give us new power to automate and optimize business processes across the entire organisation, including finance, human resources, sales, and more. They enable new experiences and applications based on more natural, intuitive computer interfaces and more powerful processing of image and other unstructured data. Hear how organisations like yours are gathering data in new ways to create new products, services, and internal processes that automatically get better over time and as people use them.

Saleah Laher, SAP Global ERP Cloud COO will present Defining the Business Case for the ERP Cloud using Tech Innovation.

This keynote will start with why the ERP cloud is inevitable and compelling; provide an overview of SAP Cloud Strategy; then dive into the main part of S/4HANA cloud business benefits through innovation, agility, and standardisation; concluding with some oversight of cloud implementation and service. Everything you need to learn about the S/4HANA ERP Cloud.

Brenton O'Callaghan from Bluefin Solutions will present Turning a 50 million USD business case into an IoT solution.

Rarely in a career do you come across the perfect business case but when you do – boy do you stop and pay attention. In this session, Bluefin's IoT veteran, Brenton O’Callaghan, is going to outline the ultimate business case for IoT within the travel and transportation industry.

Focusing on train derailments and the issue of ‘warm bearings’, Brenton will illustrate how an IoT solution can fix the problem for a fraction of the incident clean-up cost: USD $20-40m per incident. All that will be left for you to do is pin-point the ‘warm bearing’ equivalent in your business

In addition to these knowledge rich plenary sessions, the symposium will include nine different breakout sessions and a number of excellent networking opportunities.

Sessions include:

  • Robotic Process Automation with OpenText and SAP Finance - Conor Riordan, Pfizer
  • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics - Arun Godwin, SAP
  • Growing into the Living Network- Tom Pollock, Northern Gas Networks
  • Understanding SAP Access and Real Usage to better determine and manage security and licensing requirements - David Lloyd, Grey Monarch Ltd

If you would like to LEARN and NETWORK with other SAP customers and experts alike, ensuring you make new connections, benefiting both you and your organisation you need to attend this symposium.

At the end of the day there will be an opportunity to take a tour of the Aviva Stadium.

Whilst visiting one of the oldest sports grounds in the world we thought it would be nice to include the stadium tour in the symposium. You will see the press conference room, home dressing rooms, players' tunnel, dugouts and more.

As we have three different focused streams taking place, we have opened the event up to allow three members from your organisation to attend, at no extra cost, giving your organisation the opportunity to participate across all of the streams and sessions taking place, making sure nothing on the day is missed.
