On April 24th, Kai Finck who is the SVP for Line of Business Solutions for Corporate Functions at SAP is set to deliver our keynote address at the Logistics & SCM, PLM, Manufacturing, and Procurement 2013 event, taking place April 24-26 in Prague.
I’ve been coordinating and organizing content for the SAPInsider shows for a number of years now and have had the pleasure of working with Kai on a few of our previous events. As far as speakers go, Kai is both dynamic and entertaining but even more importantly; he provides a candid, no-nonsense look into SAP business processes.
Kai's keynote this year, titled "Reinventing your business in real-time" will address how using the latest SAP Business Suite powered by HANA technology, companies will be better equipped to stay ahead of their competitors and more strategically align themselves with both suppliers and customers.
Kai also shared his perspective on big data earlier this year on SAP Radio, in an interview along with Michael Krigsman, Brian S. Sommer, and Denise Broady. Kai's pointed observation when asked where Big Data will be in 5 years? “Think about dat a volume doubling every 18 months. Either companies are out of business because they were not able to cope with this vast amount of data and make it really useful, or they will outpace their competition.” Look for more from Kai on this topic - and the steps you can take to stay competitive - at his keynote in Prague.
