S/4 HANA Advanced Variant Configuration Engine

Over the past couple of years you have heard about a research project and an official project to define a new Advanced Variant Configuration Engine in the SAP S/4 HANA software. I'm very happy to share with you the first SAP promotional video on this topic, even if it DOESN'T have a Steelcase chair in it..    :-)

Feel free to share this far and wide!

What Happens in Vegas.......

Las Vegas 2016 CWG Conference is over... So let's start planning the spring conference... The voting is leaning towards Hamburg at this particular moment..


But I wonder... In Vegas we had around 115 people. On day 1, a question was asked of the audience; "How many people voted for Las Vegas?" I think 5 people raised their hands.. Not sure why this happened, but it does make me wonder about the whole "voting" thing..

Although, I admit... I'd rather do Hamburg than Barcelona... I like German beer better... :)
