ASUG_Southern Cal


The Symmetry team and I are very excited to be attending the Southern California ASUG Winter Chapter Meeting next Wednesday, December 9th at the LA County Zoo, from 9:15am-5:00pm.


Get Informed. Get Educated. Be Empowered.

America’s SAP® User Group chapter meetings are a great setting for SAP users to meet and foster great networking relationships with their peers especially in their local areas. I have found these chapter meetings to be critical to building the vast community of SAP users looking to optimize their SAP investment. Symmetry’s technical experts help by lending our thought leadership through educational sessions for ASUG members seeking to implement best practices, learn tips and tricks and leverage the latest SAP technologies.


The December 9th meeting will be held at a unique location, the great LA County Zoo! And will include an afternoon networking event featuring the must see – zoo lights.


The general agenda for the chapter meeting is as follows:

  • Multiple breakout sessions with 2 hot SAP topics each
  • Networking opportunities with fellow SAP users
  • SAP partner information
  • Continental breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Raffle prizes
  • Appetizers, food and drinks following the meeting with Zoo lights and a special visit a Zoo resident.


Let’s Talk Strategy – SAP HANA Deployment Guide

Symmetry will be onsite at the meeting offering guidance to all of your SAP questions. Attendees should be sure to stop by our table anytime throughout the day to discuss your current SAP environment and upcoming SAP roadmap. Also be sure to enter in Symmetry’s raffle for your chance to win a state-of-the-art drone.


Symmetry is the leader in SAP HANA Cloud technologies and will be offering a SAP HANA Deployment Guide that outlines the multiple paths to SAP HANA via on premise, tailored datacenter integration (TDI) and partner cloud options. The technical guide also includes detailed considerations and pricing models for each option. Be sure to pick up your guide onsite at meeting.
