APJ: SAP APJ Academic Conference 2011 (June 6-10, 2011)


SAP Academic Conference 2011

Run Better – Opportunities for University Alliances Asia Pacific Japan

6 - 10 June, 2011

Drumming to the same beat of unity through diversity, SAP Academic Conference 2011 was attended by 120 academics from 13 countries in the Asia Pacific and Japan region. With four Train-The-Trainer Workshops, three Introductory workshops and ten breakout sessions being conducted, the academics spent a fruitful week in Singapore learning about SAP software and the innovative use of technology in the classroom.

This year, the conference theme "Run Better - Opportunities for University Alliances", presented to the academics the latest SAP mobility solutions and explained our competitive edge in cloud computing and In-Memory computing. We also had the privilege of hearing from one of our key customers, BHP Billiton, who shared with us its transformational program of having one integrated effective system implemented in their operations and the types of skills set for various job functions in such a complex project. We also heard from our very own SAP HR Talent Acquisition expert on the key skills sets that SAP is looking for when it hires people to work in the company. The academics benefitted from an excellent combination of product focused presentations and useful tips on preparing their students for the workforce.

Content from the plenary presentations, breakout sessions and workshops are available for download.
