Christian Klein, CEO, SAP


Is your ERP Equipped to Manage Through Crisis and Unlock Intelligence?


Resilience is now commercially equated with business survival. According to McKinsey, “Your business context is and will remain uncertain. But if you get moving now, you can ride the waves of uncertainty instead of being overpowered by them.”

We agree. But we don’t think you should have to figure it all out by yourself. Jasper Luickx will take you through this 3-part digital forum.
