Mini Talks Put Cloud Expo Asia Into Perspective

The thing about clouds is that they can make it difficult to see what’s happening. That’s also true when it comes to cloud computing. Cloud is such a broad and fast-moving topic, it’s hard to get a handle on everything.

Maybe that’s why I enjoy Cloud Expo Asia so much. The two-day event does a good job of putting the cloud latest development into perspective. But, with 128 hours of insightful conference content shared by leading industry experts across 12 theatres, you can’t see everything. And picking out precisely what to attend and which booths to visit is tough for the more than 12,000 attendees.


Keeping it simple

At the latest event, SAP tried to simplify that challenge. We invited independent speakers, along with SAP experts, to share their insights on some of the burning issues. The result was a series of Mini Talks which took place in the Expo’s VIP lounge. Held on both days of the Expo, attendees were free to drop-in for a particular session, but many stayed for the full programme

Along with SAP presenters, the talks on Day 1 included guest speakers from CapGemini, covering the Journey to an Intelligent Enterprise, from IBM on creating Cognitive Enterprises, and Blackline, who discussed the last thing many companies want to think – dealing with the challenges of a Financial Close!

They were joined by Horace Leung from the HKPC, who offered advice on how Hong Kong’s thousands of SMEs can Migrate to “Enterprise 4.0,” and Victor Tsang, a partner at HMI, who offered ideas on ensuring Best Practices in Cloud HR.

Day 2 was also packed, with representatives from Deloitte and Dynasis delivering talks on Cloud for Financial Services and digital transformation strategies. They were flanked by SAP, SAP Concur, SAP SuccessFactor and SAP C/4HANA speakers, whose presentations ran the gamut from how to make money (by creating excellent customer experiences) to how to keep as much of it as possible (with intelligent spend management).
