Well folks, SAP TechEd and SAP TechEd Hands-On Lab Las Vegas are merely weeks away. I can almost hear the slot machines cranking, the roulette spinning, the dice rolling. There’s no place on earth quite like Vegas, huh? But gambling with your implementation is no laughing matter. That’s why I’m thrilled to explain a new way to set up your SAP TechEd agenda, using use cases to solve problems in a repeatable manner – through the implementation of missions.

As I briefly mentioned here, we’ve hand-picked ten select use cases that showcase SAP technology in action to help you solve real-world problems. Why struggle through problems other developers have already solved? Use cases let you scan through different scenarios and find the help you need to apply those learnings to your own situation. You’ll learn how to implement our products and services with step-by-step guidance and support from SAP experts. Sounds awesome, right?

I know, I know. Some of you are shaking your heads and saying, “Well geez, SAP, that’s nothing new! Use cases have been a part of the SAP Discovery Center for years (aka – missions). What’s the big fuss?” Hold on and hear me out. 😊The difference this year is that we’ve crossed referenced these use cases with our SAP TechEd 2022 session lineup to give you specific information about the products that apply to your chosen use case. We’ll help you structure your SAP TechEd schedule and build your agenda so when you’re ready to roll-up your sleeves and get to it, you’ll have the background information you need to get you across the finish line without the headache.

Wondering which use cases we’ve hand-selected for TechEd? Let’s take a sneak peek!
