Insights from SAP Sapphire 2015

The SAP Sapphire Now event took place last week in sunny Orlando, Florida, and Experian Data Quality retuned to the event yet again! Thousands of people from all over the globe, and many different industries attended the event to gain more insight, learn about the SAP product roadmap, connect with peers and educate themselves on key trends and topics in their specific industries.

Throughout the event, there were many notable speakers and sessions including Michael Strahan from "Live! with Kelly and Michael" and "Good Morning America." We had a lot of great conversations with people who stopped by the Experian Data Quality booth to learn more about data quality as well as grab some of the Experian swag.

Below are some of the key topics that came up in conversations throughout the week:

  1. Data quality as an important strategy for migrations – Conversations around data quality confirmed this is a crucial first step in migrations. Ensuring that your data is of the highest quality before moving it into your new system is important, but it will also eliminate rework during the migration project itself. Many attendees were in the process of migrating to SAP and were interested in learning more about our data quality capabilities before going kicking off their migration. To learn the five most common data migration challenges and for tips on ensuring that your migration is a success, check out our white paper, Easing the data migration burden
  2. Interest EDQ’s SAP integration – Most notably known for our work in the credit services space, we were busy educating our booth visitors in our SAP certified integration, talking through our features and functionality, our product roadmap, and current customer use cases.
  3. Master data management - This was a topic of many discussions throughout the week. Since data quality plays an important part in a master data management strategy, we were excited to talk about our newest product, Experian Pandora. This product offering ignited a ton of interest because of it's flexibility, speed and the quick time to value that Experian Pandora customers are seeing. 

The conference wrapped up with an amazing performance from Jennifer Lopez at the Amway Center in Downtown Orlando. We look forward to returning to SAP's event next year!
