5 Weeks, 5 Webinars: SAP HANA Expert Series, presented by Protiviti

Staying abreast — or ahead — of the latest SAP HANA enhancements can be a full-time job. Everyone’s resource-challenged: There’s not enough time, not enough staff, and not enough funding for training. We hear stories from clients every day who feel they’re not making the most of their SAP HANA investments or that their teams aren’t able to train on enhancements and upgrades often or quickly enough to maximize their significant IT investments.

Beginning September 7, Protiviti is offering a five-part SAP HANA Expert Webinar Series that can help your organization achieve its goals to optimize the SAP HANA platforms you’ve selected or are considering.

Each hour-long session will be led by one or more of our SAP HANA experts. Attendees will take away valuable best practices ranging from choosing the right next step on your SAP HANA journey, to maximizing the SAP HANA security model, to making the right choice between cloud, on-premise, or hybrid platforms.

Register now for one, two, or all five webinars, which are detailed below.
