Keynote by Rob Hartsough, General Manager of SAP Services in the South

Get ready to experience the lifecycle of an SAP deployment through the eyes of someone who’s been there. In his keynote, Rob Hartsough, General Manager of SAP Services in the South brings a holistic view of SAP implementations to our discussion. He’ll talk about the key steps for a successful deployment, including managing change, ensuring adoption, avoiding risks and much more.

Successful SAP projects happen with you, not to you. To achieve the business outcomes you envision, you team needs to be intimately involved in making critical business decisions, adjusting your processes and procedures to new models, and ensuring your team is using the system effectively. Being unprepared in any of these areas can kill your ROI.


SAP’s Training and Adoption portfolio provides powerful solutions to address these challenges. In this session we’ll discuss how SAP works with you to capture the return on investment you expect, and we’ll suggest first steps as you embark upon your journey.

It’s a fact of life in cloud deployments: If users don’t adopt the software, they won’t use it. Adoption impacts every aspect of an SAP project ꟷ from change management to deployment success to value realization. Fortunately, a new wave of learning is helping to drive user adoption. In this panel discussion, we’ll discuss how you can use cutting edge best practices and technology to bring timely, on-point learning to users at the moment they need it.  Our panel will also take your questions about training and adoption.
