​Bringing thought provoking information and insight from around the world were the key objectives of the Investigo SAP conference, held on Thursday 3rd November at Furniture Makers Hall. Attended by over 70 SAP specialists, the evening provided a discussion platform on SAP HANA, C4C, IBP and SuccessFactors along with what the future for SAP in the cloud looks like. There was also the opportunity to network during the conference whilst enjoying drinks and canapes, which concluded in an extremely successful evening event, enjoyed by all who attended.

The conference welcomed five industry experts over the course of the evening, covering the following areas:

What does the future look like for Cloud based CRM?

Business Transformation through Cloud solutions – how to bring it all together?

The conference began with a visually engaging presentation, which set the tone for the evening’s proceedings. By drawing upon a comparative analogy between data and oil, the merits of how HANA makes data more granular were discussed – ‘resulting in you not having to drill everywhere to find what you are looking for.’ The capabilities of the product and its real-time loop reporting were discussed and illustrated HANA’s ability to be the as a secret weapon for SAP. A candid review of C4C gave attendees insight to the good, bad and ugly of the product. The overriding advice from all was to ensure movement with the times as everything that is now known will no longer be relevant in 5 years’ due to the pace of the market’s pace of development.

Terry Dawson, Investigo’s SAP Director commented: “The conference was a huge success and we are immensely pleased with the positive feedback from all those who attended. We showcase these events to bring insight from industry experts to our clients and candidates on the lastest developments in the world of SAP. It is also imperative that we are continually improving our own expertise and understanding industry trends ensuring we are fully equipped when advising our network on roles and skillsets. We have seen exceptional growth of the SAP Investigo team over the past 12 months, which is a testament to the dedication of each individual and we are looking forward to the next 12 months, which will include similar events aimed to keep everyone connected and informed.”
