Advanced SQL Queries: Business Intelligence from Your Intelligence

Learning structured query language (SQL) is an investment in yourself and your staff and helps make the most of your current technology investment. SAP HANA® and Microsoft SQL are themselves powerful business intelligence tools that can be used to great effect. Come see a tutorial on writing analytical SQL queries using the more advanced features of your system. We start with an unremarkable "select" statement and build on that using joins, grouping, aggregates, and window functions to get informative and actionable intelligence. The content of this session applies equally to Microsoft SQL and SAP HANA. 

Key Business Benefits: 


  • We make the most of our investment by building our own reports. 

  • The body of our SQL knowledge is kept in the database itself, ready for study. 

  • Our SQL experience leads to easier integrations of other SQL-based systems.

How Corporate Culture Can Make or Break Your SAP Innovation Strategy

Are you looking to get more out of SAP Business One® by improving processes, integrating with third-party software, moving to SAP HANA®or taking advantage of mobile? Are you working on anything innovative with SAP Business One that's going to be a game changer and set you apart from the competition? Without the right corporate culture in place, these plans will likely fail. As quoted by Harvard Business Review and Wall Street Journal Contributor Peter Drucker, “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Tim Guest is managing director of SAP Business One users for Zoedale Ltd. in the U.K. and has firsthand experience of this. After implementing SAP Business One in 2014, Zoedale Ltd. went on a three-year cultural change program, which saw 50% of its existing staff leave or get fired. In 2019, the 15-person team works to a set of values and principles, and the culture really is about challenging the status quo and constantly looking at ways to improve processes. This session will give attendees a few simple steps to help them define their values and principles and create a culture that not only accepts change, but one that drives change. 

Key Business Benefits: 


  • Learn how culture can help achieve your business objectives. 

  • Define a set of values and principles aligned with your strategy. 

  • Build a culture that drives innovation, change, and improvement.
