The Ireland SIG provides a forum for SAP customers to learn, network, collaborate and influence SAP by creating a platform to discuss common challenges relating to all aspects of SAP, through formal presentations and informal networking. The SIG receives regular updates from SAP and partners on future products, services and solution roadmaps.
The SAP product portfolio is wide, varied and constantly evolving. Therefore, the SIG agenda can draw from any aspect of SAP solutions which allows the SIG to appeal to a broad audience, from IT / SAP focused analysts to line of business personnel seeking to maximise value from their use of SAP.
The Ireland SIG will provide an opportunity to have open discussions about challenges, projects and strategy – where our members can share ideas and experiences. Three meetings are held throughout the year and the Ireland SIG Committee welcomes feedback and ideas for future meetings.
