Line of Business



  • 1. The Journey to SAP S/4HANA and Cloud ERP

    With many customers still running SAP ECC and mainstream support only running until 31st December 2027 there is much to think about. Foundational to this are business benefits, if you cannot articulate the benefits to your business, then why should you even move at all? In this stream we will help you understand how you can Start Quicker, Move Smarter, and ultimately Run Better.

  • 2. Trusted Data & Insightful Analytics

    Leveraging data to drive business value remains a key topic for many organisations running SAP. This stream will help you plan your next steps by bringing you up to speed with the latest approaches and technologies, and of course not forgetting the impact of Cloud and Hyperscalers.


  • 3. Practical AI & Automation

    The hot topic, it seems like no event agenda is complete without mention of AI and how it will either solve all the worlds challenges or enslave us like “Skynet”. This session will take a practical and business value-led approach to covering the What, the Why, and the How of AI and Automation.

  • 4. Focus on SAP Business One and SAP Business ByDesign

    We are acutely aware that several Sapphire customers utilise SAP Business One or SAP Business ByDesign. This stream will offer roadmap updates and discussions on methods to “cloudify” through the application of Automation, Analytics, and AI. There will also be an opportunity to hear from sponsors with a particular focus on these platforms.

  • 5. “Your Voice” Round Tables

    A chance for you to lead the conversation. After last year’s success we will once again dedicate a stream to a series of more intimate and interactive “Inner Circle” sessions. These round tables offer the opportunity for open, honest, experience sharing, and networking around a range of topics. Stay tuned for the full list.

  • 6. Taking SAP Development to the Cloud

    In the last 12 months we have seen SAP accelerate their move towards Cloud technologies. In this stream we will dive deeper into some of the critical technical areas you need to plan for. You can expect discussions on “Clean Core”, Migration to Cloud Integration, Testing and Release Management, ABAP Cloud, and much more.

  • 7. Line of Business – A Focus on the Functional

    “Move to product xyz, it’s better”. An often-repeated phrase. But what does better actually look like? In this stream we will focus on what’s new for key line of business functional areas including Finance, HCM, Spend Management, Supply Chain, and more.

  • 8. Talking Strategy

    Stepping away from technology and product, our thought leaders, customers, and partners will discuss and advise on some of the more difficult topics facing organisations today.
