Invenio – Three fantastic days at SAPPHIRE NOW

Well Invenio are no longer a SAPPHIRE NOW ‘newbie’… And our first experience of the world’s premier business technology conference was certainly a good one.

The marketing team arrived in Orlando on the Saturday, and by the Monday we were raring to go. We headed over to Americas second largest exhibition centre – Orange Country Convention Centre, to get the ball rolling and to prepare the finishing touches to our stand.

Before long – Tuesday morning had arrived, the rest of the Invenio team had touched down in Orlando, and by 8am the whole team were present at booth 1807 amongst 25,000 other SAP enthusiasts ready to kick start the event!

So what happened at SAPPHIRE NOW?…Here are a couple of Invenio’s key takeaways

Interest in Procure to Pay:
After showcasing our very own procure to pay portal; Invenio’s P2P Solutions – at SAPPHIRE NOW, we discovered a great deal of interest.
The Invenio’s P2P Solutions software helps companies who are using SAP to dramatically cut costs in non-revenue-generating purchasing activities. Meaning companies can increase their bottom line.

The delegates who visited our stand found this a compelling proposition, and as explained by Bill McDermott in his keynote session – many people were seeing a real life example of… “Simplify everything so we can do anything.” In the same way Universal Music did when they implemented Invenio’s P2P Solutions.

HANA is everywhere:
One thing was made very clear at SAPPHIRE and that was that HANA is EVERYWHERE!
Many of the keynote sessions involved HANA presentations or examples of how customers had used HANA successfully – giving them the opportunity to ‘share their story.’
Across many of the exhibitions stands lay HANA demos, whitepapers and discussions around how SAP and their partners can help. It was clear that HANA is a major focus for SAP and its partners right now.

Invenio are very much supporting the HANA revolution and have created their very own HANA Lab. The HANA Lab allows prospected users to test real-time scenarios and also it will enable Invenio to deepen their knowledge.

Invenio has just been awarded the SAP EMEA Regional Partner Excellence Award (Database and Technology) for the HANA Laboratory and the work they did with Universal Music Group.

In the following few weeks we will be running a series of blogs to talk about further takeaways and verdicts from SAPPHIRE Now. Look out for the following topics:

  • SAP wants to become simple
  • FREE SAP Fiori and Personas
  • SAP’s partnerships with hardware Vendors and platform partnerships with eBay

In the meantime if you missed out or would like to re-cap on the highlights from SAPPHIRE NOW, here are a few blogs which we recommend:

• Day 1 recap: What Happened on Day 1 of #SAPPHIRENOW?
• Day 2 recap: SAP HANA filled day at #SAPPHIRENOW
• Day 3 recap: SAPPHIRE NOW, Day 3: #SAP #HANA Changes Everything

We would like to give a special mention to our three prize draw winners from the event:

Brian Docili from Technicolor
Gretchen Shaw from Baker Mckenzie
Alex Glatman from RBS citizens

Speaking on behalf of the Invenio team after three days of manning our sponsored booth at Sapphire in Orlando, we all returned with a fresh perspective. The whole experience was both motivational and revitalising.

Thank you for visiting!
