During the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, held from 26thof February till 1st of March at the Fira. I had the chance to meet with a number of SAP executives and get some important takeaways from the briefings, worth of a blog post of media collected:
Prefer to watch – here is my event video …

A good point in time to check-in where SAP stands. Consumption based pricing is likely the most impactful announcement, giving CxOs better options to experiment, evaluate and operate next generation applications. The transformation of the SAP IoT portfolio, moving from templates, APIs and examples to separate products is equally positive.
On the concern side - I was not so sure if SAP got the marketing $s back from a large booth at MWC. Apart from the Telco and Comms industry vendors - MWC is not a mainstream IT event. But certainly good to be at the party for SAP.
Overall good to catch up with SAP in many of its technology offerings. Sapphire looms large - only 3 monhts till the gathering in the Florida swamps.
