valantic Digital Transformation Event from September 27–30
Munich, August 24, 2022: “Innovation by Change” is the topic of the Customer Focus Days SAP 2022. valantic’s digitization event, to be held as a livestream from September 27–30, offers SAP users and experts a venue for exchanging views on cloud strategies, change processes and innovative end-to-end solutions along the entire value chain. Companies such as BASLER, DOHLE Handelsgruppe, ElringKlinger and BSH Hausgeräte will be present. Attendance is free of charge.
There is no way around digitization. Transformation to the Intelligent Enterprise is vital for companies to survive and flourish in an increasingly challenging environment – a process that not only demands courage, but also unleashes innovation. But what is the best way to shape transformation? And which solutions best fulfill a company’s specific needs? Which strategies have proven themselves in practice? And how can employees be galvanized from start to finish?
The Customer Focus Days SAP 2022 will address these and other central digitization issues. In keynotes, panel discussions, expert talks and deep dives, SAP users and experts will offer answers, set impulses and provide orientation for each phase of the transformation. The congress will be opened on September 27 by Dr. Michael Gross, three-time Olympic swimming champion and expert on digital transformation. In his keynote address, “Lust am Kontrollverlust” (“The Longing to Lose Control”), the CEO of management consultancy Gross & Cie. and lecturer at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main will talk about the role of leadership in change.
The panel discussions and expert talks at the Customer Focus Days SAP 2022 will center on companies’ practical experiences. Martina Quast, Head of SAP at BASLER, and Dr. Thorben Grubert, Head of HR IT at DOHLE Handelsgruppe, for example, will provide insights into their digitization projects during a panel discussion on cloud transformation. The topics broached will include the journey from on-premises operation to the cloud as well as the implementation and optimization of complex processes. Fabian Hörz, Director Global Strategy & Digital Transformation at ElringKlinger, will explain how his company is driving forward the digitization of its supply chain. In his expert talk, he will discuss ElringKlinger’s transformation strategy, the implementation milestones, and his role in this complex project. BSH Hausgeräte, one of the world’s leading home appliance manufacturers, will present exclusive project insights at the Customer Focus Days SAP as well. In her expert talk, Claudia Bock, Project Leader IT Coordination at BSH Hausgeräte, will focus on the digitization and standardization of companywide processes for contract management and sales.
A range of deep-dive webinars from September 28–30 will delve into individual aspects of transformation. Topics will include B2B portal solutions and an HR transformation project at automotive supplier Simoldes Plastics. Other presentations will examine the benefits of Big Data in SAP Activate implementation projects, SAP S/4HANA brownfield conversion, the possibilities that the SAP Business Technology Platform offers for developing innovative business models, and an SAP Cloud solution for “last mile” detailed planning in manufacturing.
