Social innovation, disruptive tech and more reasons you should attend InnovationX

Feb 18, 2019

Innovation is at the core of everything we do. From data and analytics that drive effective decision making, to future proofing your business applications to maximise IT investment and encourage a culture of continuous change – we’re applying innovative thinking across our services and solutions. With this in mind, it was an easy decision for us to be a part of the SAP InnovationX event on March 7th.

With something for everyone whether you’re in IT, HR, Finance or Marketing, here’s five reasons that this event is not to be missed.

Disruptive Technology

In this day and age, you have a choice. To be the disruptor, or the disrupted. It’s challenging for businesses to keep at the forefront of IT, which is why you need to take the initiative to discover the latest in innovation for yourself; before your competition do. With four immersive showcases and over 60 speaking sessions, you’ll be hard pressed to find an event that provides as great an insight into the current innovations that are changing the world. 

Business transformation is being driven by these disruptive technologies that are enabling sustainable and intelligent futures. We’ll be showcasing some of our innovations that are enabling better business results, such as our pre-configured FAST-Engineer SAP solution that’s revolutionising the industry.

Win a Boeing Flight Simulator Experience

Once you’ve registered for the event, come to stand #7 to be in with a chance of winning an amazing prize. We’ve partnered with Virtual Aerospace so that you’ll be in with the chance of winning an unforgettable experience in a Boeing 737-800 simulator, a prize worth £500. The experience feels so real, that the simulator perfectly replicate the feelings of flight, everything from take-off to turbulence. 

Olympic inspiration

For innovation to take place, you need to be inspired. This isn’t something that the expo and agenda fall short of and it’s only enhanced by the keynote session with Britain’s fastest woman, Dina Asher-Smith. If the innovation leaders from some of the UKs leading brands were not enough to inspire you, then hearing an Olympian’s story of passion, determination and success is another great reason to register for the event.

Supporting the Prince's Trust

Disruptive and innovative technologies are not just powerful for improving the performance of businesses, there’s vast potential for technology to deliver social change and improve the lives of society’s most vulnerable. In partnership with the Prince’s Trust, the SAP Social Challenge will pit five teams against each other to demonstrate how innovation can help enhance and elevate the quality of social care in the UK. On March 7th, a judging panel will be choosing which innovative solutions will be developed further to support the trust and ultimately, use technology to better the lives of others.

Predict, optimise & connect

Disruptive technology and innovation aren’t merely buzz words within delaware. Our work enabling digital transformation is focussed on translating trends into tangible solutions that deliver business value. We’re helping businesses realise the power of AI and IoT to predict supply and demand, optimise marketing campaigns and take efficiency to the next level. We’re also implementing intelligent Chatbot services to automate processes and improve the customer experience. 

At Innovation X on March 7th, through interactive demonstrations and presentations, we will help visitors discover “an intelligent future” and how value can be achieved throughout their digital journey with SAP Leonardo, SAP S/4HANA, SAP C/4HANA and SAP SucessFactors.
