Happy New Year to all of our members!
We wish the best to all of you in the coming year - especailly in a year where we've seen...
...some big predictions that have fizzled (Mayan apocalypse, anyone?)
...some events that have not matched the hype (Facebook IPO?)
...and even some exciting fireworks in the SAP market (HANA vs. Exalytics?)
This year, we have some practical advice -- straight from some of our favorite gurus, working every day with their clients and SAP technology. What are they - and their customers - looking forward to in 2013? Read here for more from Dr. Bjarne Berg on BI & HANA, Kellie Fitzgerald on HR, Bob Ferrari on SCM, Prashant Mendki on Ariba and SAP, and more.
