Digital Transformation is fundamentally and strongly shaping the way we will do business in the future and is particularly evident in the automotive industry. New technologies and the Internet of Things / Connectivity are driving the development of new business models, manufacturing processes and products. At the same time, our customers have to meet the expectations of their ever more digitally savvy customers and consumers. How can you succeed in this transformation? How can SAP help you?
We will answer your questions at the Best Practices for Automotive conference from October 17-19, 2016 in Detroit, Michigan, USA. Appropriately, the theme for the event is “Accelerating business in the digital age”.
What are my personal highlights?
- Dialogue and networking with customers and partners
We have 7,000 automotive customers worldwide and many of our customers and partners will attend our event. Thus, the event provides the perfect setting to start the dialogue with customers and partners and to network. This is a personal highlight for me and it really makes me happy and proud to see that our international automotive community is constantly growing over the years.
We will have keynotes from Bosch, Center for Automotive Research (CAR), Uber, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and many more.
- Customer presentations & breakout sessions
Customers will deliver over 80% of our presentations! In our 32 breakout sessions we will feature customer stories aligned with the themes of Finance, Manufacturing and Engineering, Supply Chain, Information Technology, Sales, Service and Aftersales and Change and People.
