Customer Case Studies

Hear how your peers have shortened project times, cut costs, evaluated key criteria, and ultimately achieved success on massive, high-stakes initiatives.

In-Depth Sessions
Top experts from SAP, leading independent consulting firms, and your industry counterparts present road maps, tips, tricks, best practices, and strategic recommendations that you can immediately put to use upon returning to the office.

The world’s foremost experts on SAP technology
At PLM 2017, you will hear directly from the best of the best. Speakers at this conference are experienced practitioners, industry visionaries, and subject matter experts (SMEs) on whom you can count for reliable, accurate information. This event is loaded with practical content to help you successfully complete your next project, augment your skills, and grow your career.

Exhibitor Meet and Greets
Compare and contrast market-leading solutions and see for yourself how SAP and third-party technologies fit into your IT infrastructure.

Panel Discussions
These sessions are informal, interactive gettogethers where SAP customers can ask panelists their most pressing questions. Each panel will be moderated by a subject-matter expert. You do not need to sign up in advance to attend, and there is no formal agenda. Just come with your list of questions in hand.

Ask the Experts
Sit down with leading experts who manage, deploy, and support SAP environments to get detailed answers to your toughest questions. Draw on the real-world experiences from some of the industry’s top technologists and tap into one-on-one time with experts and walk away with detailed answers to the questions that matter to you most.

Evening Reception
Have some fun after a day of intense learning, and attend the evening reception to relax, catch up with your co-workers and colleagues, and build your professional network. Plus, market-leading solution providers will be on hand to answer your questions and walk you through prerequisites, decision points, trade-offs, and timelines for your ongoing initiatives and upcoming projects.

Speed Networking
You’ve heard of speed dating—now try speed networking! Participants will have 5 minutes to make their initial introductions and converse before moving on to meet another contact. An emcee will provide instructions and keep things moving. Forge new relationships and build a lasting network of peers you can call on for years to come.
