SAP is a powerhouse in data management and associated business applications, and the SAP NetWeaver platform is well on its way to becoming an industry standard in terms of providing one version of the truth to enterprises both large and small, says Brian Yarnell, Director of Product Management at Interactive Edge. Where many organizations struggle, however, is putting that robust set of information in the hands of the average employee quickly, cost-effectively, and in a framework that melds seamlessly into their existing workday. We will demonstrate hands-on how any employee in an organization can use XP3 to connect Microsoft Office directly to their existing SAP NetWeaver BI system with just a few simple clicks and generate compelling, interactive, data-driven presentation content to meet the needs of a large, distributed sales and marketing group.
SAP TechEd 07 is SAPs premier educational event offering nearly 1,000 hours of instructor-led hands-on workshops and demo-rich lectures. Featured topics include Duet, SAP NetWeaver MDM, SAP xApp Analytics, SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment featuring Java EE 5, ABAP, and the Demo Jam- where a select few SAP partners and customers will showcase cutting-edge technology solutions.
