Join us for the largest global business technology event, hosted by SAP and ASUG. Why should you attend? Because data is at the heart of SAP HANA.  As organizations leverage data to make better business decisions, they can speed results and reduce risk with an enterprise-class data foundation that is designed for efficiency, optimized to protect and created to embrace future opportunities.
