Symmetry SAP SAPPHIRE NOW 2017 Highlights

SAP HANA | From Business Case to Production

For most companies, an SAP HANA migration represents a profound change in the way ERP is done. It’s a chance to restructure the whole ERP landscape to precisely meet their strategic business and technical needs. It can be transformative for your organization, but only if you get it right. In this SAP SAPPHIRE NOW presentation, Hans Dossche, Director for HANA COE at KPIT joins Symmetry for a presentation and live Q&A about the HANA transformation process. We’ll discuss the entire process in this session. From creating a business case, through designing a solution with SAP and non-SAP applications, all the way through performance tuning and go-live.

Best Practices for SAP Access Controls

If you’ve been anywhere near a boardroom, or enterprise IT department, no one needs to tell you how important SAP security and compliance are. Across industries, executives continue to work on protecting IT security and meeting regulatory compliance needs. SAP Access Control has been a particular focus recently, as organizations struggle to update their outdated processes to cope with the needs of modern business. However, many companies lack the knowhow to modernize SAP compliance. In this SAP SAPPHIRE NOW presentation you can join Symmetry’s VP of Compliance and Security, Scott Goolik to learn key best practices for SAP Access Control. Come learn how to manage user roles and align key compliance processes to meet the needs of your business. All while meeting compliance requirements and reducing overall risk within the organization.

Symmetry In-Booth Cocktail and Sugar Rush Receptions

SAP SAPPHIRE NOW is a great opportunity to learn, but it can take a lot out of you. Take a break from the presentations to network with some great folks. All while satisfying your sweet tooth or enjoying your favorite drink. Symmetry has in-booth receptions each day, so you can get to know us on your own schedule. On Tuesday and Wednesday, de-stress and chat over a mug of beer, a glass of wine, or a fresh screwdriver at our cocktail reception. Or if sweets are more your speed, join us on Thursday for our Sugar Rush Reception, featuring gourmet mini doughnuts.
