SAPinsider is once again delivering its flagship spring conference in Las Vegas, and this year will be a special combined event featuring solutions around SAP HANA, SAP Cloud Platform, business intelligence and analytics, financials, GRC, human resources, and more. Starting in just a few short weeks (there’s still time to register!) we’ve shaken things up, giving attendees much more of a hands-on experience, with 2-hour workshops, the Intelligent Enterprise Lounge, and more opportunities to talk one-on-one with SAP experts.

Here’s your insider’s look into the event.
