The community for organisations who are passionate about technology and people

A vibrant community where people learn from international experts and from each other about the hottest topics this year, HANA, mobility, cloud, system and middleware integration, Solution Manager, agile development technologies, security and testing. Mastering SAP Technologies is an interactive experience rather than a sit-and-listen conference including a plethora of networking opportunities and social gatherings. Designed to help each other pinpoint new and different ways to develop, maintain, optimise and upgrade SAP systems.
