  Here is our October Newsletter.

  • SAP Utility Customers using SAP Fiori and SAP Screen Personas – Lincoln Electric,  TECO, and SRP – Join us October 13th at 11:00 am PDT

·         SAP Utility Customers using SAP Fiori and SAP Screen Personas – Lincoln Electric,  TECO, and SRP will all present their use of these solutions for Utility use cases they have in production. 

·         While we all know that SAP Fiori is part of SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud – Extended Edition (SAP GUI is not supported), you do not have to wait for SAP S/4HANA to take advantage of Fiori.  These utilities have taken the technology and developed utility use cases leveraging the UI and its ability to connect to SAP back-end processes to automate and improve efficiency at their utilities in Meter to Cash,  Financial, Warehouse, EAM, etc. 

·         Come hear from your utility peers about how they have accomplished this and also from SAP product manager Peter Spielvogel on Fiori Elements (New options) and Business Application Studio  (New Dev tools). SAP is currently gathering input for Fiori through Customer Connection and many of us are participating in providing input into how we want the Fiori UI to be improved in future versions.  No need to register, just cut and paste this link into your calendars.  Note  Tuesday, 10/13 at 11:00 am PDT.
