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 (@maggiebuggie) will deliver an SAP keynote following Sapphire announcements. With the mass adoption of cloud, big data and mobile technologies over the last 20 years, SAP's customers are generating an overwhelming volume of data. But most of them are unable to leverage this data effectively. As data becomes the new “oil”, most companies are simply building up larger reserves without a clear path for how to cash in this new asset. To make sense of all the noise, draw meaningful insights from their data, and dynamically allocate resources, SAP's customers must become intelligent enterprises.

Intelligent enterprises operate with visibility, focus, and agility to achieve game-changing outcomes. They do more with less, and empower employees through process automation. They deliver a best-in-class customer experience, by proactively responding to customer expectations. They invent new business models, and revenue streams.

SAP is committed to helping every customer become a best-run business. SAP's strategy is to deliver the intelligent enterprise for their customers, so they can achieve their desired outcomes, and make the world run better. Join this session to understand how SAP are creating customer value and equipping their customers with “next practices” to become intelligent enterprises.”

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.

Chris Kernaghan from Bluefin 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 Chris Kernaghan 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’, Chris 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 to find your businesses ‘warm-bearing’ equivalent.
