If you want to collaborate smoothly and closely in the future, while at the same time getting the most out of (new) digital technologies,

you will need to connect people, machines, businesses and systems.

With Industry 4.0 knocking on everyone’s door, factories will become smart by using connected systems to improve inefficiencies and optimize operations in the production process and supply chain. Of course, the cloud is the best place to do that. But how far is cloud technology today? What can you learn from others about bottlenecks when moving to the cloud? If you want to go digital, what do you need to know about security and privacy? And what can blockchain do for your business?

Let us help you find the answers to these questions at SAPience’s 2018 User Day on March 20.

 

March 20 - 8:30 am to 7 pm

Track 5 (Other Directions): Virtual Data Warehousing

Track 5 (Other Directions): Virtual Data Warehousing

Data Virtualization offers great opportunities for real-time analytics, agile reporting and reduced TCO for analytics. Thanks to SAP, there are now multiple technological solutions that can be explored. This session will take you through a diverse selection of customer use cases to highlight the potential of these technologies, and compare them with (an agnostic) persistent data warehouse approach. Furthermore, a specific use case concerning Smart Manufacturing will show you the ease with which (self-service) analytics can be implemented on the shop floor. This is accomplished by using virtualization to make external MES (IoT pre-processed) data available to the user-community.
