Our Public Sector SIG provides an opportunity for organisations to share their experiences, challenges and plans to develop and maintain SAP. In a time of austerity where the public sector is looking for ways to do more with less, networking and sharing best practice is key.
The event will start with a coffee & networking session exclusive to public sector organisations only.
David Freeman, Technical Specialist at Sunderland City Council will be sharing their experience of Delivering SAP Fiori. In December 2019 Sunderland City Council presented at UKISUG Connect discussing their SAP optimisation project. This included technical upgrades and the beginning of their journey delivering Fiori & UI5 apps for HR and Payroll. Now, in 2021 Sunderland City Council are pilot ready to deliver their final phase of apps. At this point, the Council will be using 15+ employee & manager self service applications, which will alter and improve the way they work and use SAP dramatically as an organisation. The presentation will concentrate on the final phase of apps, requesting and approving leave, and a new bespoke employee working pattern app.
A live demo will be delivered, along with details of hurdles and pain points that they encountered. The session is intended to be very informal & interactive, and we encourage you to ask questions and participate in a group discussion.
The full agenda and content for this session will be online shortly, but take a look at some of the benefits this SIG brings:
This SIG covers a wide range of SAP related topics relevant to the Public Sector – recent topics have included Mobile, Fiori Apps, Making Tax Digital, GDPR and licencing.
A variety of representatives from Public Sector attend the SIG as well as SAP representatives and guest speakers, so a mix of both business and technical staff at all levels will find the SIG beneficial.
As SAP continue to expand their Public Sector team, the SIG is a useful way to engage with SAP in helping to understand and influence their ‘SAP strategy in the Public Sector’.
If you are developing your SAP roadmap or want to maximise your investment in SAP to tackle the current financial challenges the Public Sector SIG can help.
