Intel at SAP TechED 2015: Plan Your Schedule Now

SAP TechEd 2015, coming to Las Vegas Oct. 19-23, is always a great experience. As SAP’s premier technology education event, it’s where you come to find out what’s new and what’s on the horizon in the world of enterprise computing. But it’s also a conference where you get to exchange ideas and connect with industry leaders and other IT professionals at a really practical level, with lots of opportunities for hands-on training, networking, and collaboration.

The conference also feels significant because of the long and rich history of joint innovation shared by Intel and SAP. The two companies have worked together on SAP HANA* since 2005, and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family and SAP HANA have been co-optimized for superior performance, reliability, enhanced security, and flexible management. Intel Xeon processor E7 is also the reference architecture for SAP HANA, and is the certified platform of choice for over 400 SAP HANA-based appliances built by 15 different OEMs and cloud service providers.

And the collaboration continues as Intel and SAP move forward with new co-engineered solutions in enterprise mobility, IoT, and data analytics at the network edge.
