International SAP®
Conference for Utilities
April 13–15, 2015
Berlin, Germany
In cooperation with
WELCOME
The Digital Utility – Transform, Simplify, and Execute
Today’s utility is a highly connected, service-centric, and digital data-driven business. Utility companies have a mandate from
customers and regulators alike to deliver higher levels and reliability of service, while of course continuing to drive profitability
and business performance. Organizations that wish to succeed in this complex and demanding marketplace must transform
their enterprise service software, simplify operations, and execute a holistic corporate strategy. Utilities must become digitally
focused, able to leverage technology and innovation to react quickly to a changing regulatory and market landscape.
Join us in Berlin for the 10th annual International SAP Conference for Utilities, where you will discover how – in a digital era –
solutions from SAP can empower utility companies, be it electric, gas, or water.
We are thrilled to offer three information-packed days, built to reflect the diverse challenges faced by modern utility companies.
Thought-provoking keynotes from industry experts will be complemented by a range of customer case studies from high-profile
global SAP customers, as well as the latest solution updates and industry strategy from SAP leadership. All will be delivered
within an environment that is built for interaction – with plentiful networking opportunities, meet-the-expert sessions, interactive
workshops, demos, showcase centers, and more.
In order to enhance cross-industry networking opportunities, we are also happy to announce that this year’s event will be
co-located with the International SAP Conference for Oil and Gas. With a shared exhibition, a joint ‘energy-centric’ break out
track, and other shared demos and microforums, take advantage of many synergies on offer.
This is your chance to network with experts, have your questions answered, learn from your peers, and ensure that your
organization is in the best possible position to transform, simplify and execute to become a digital utility.
We look forward to welcoming you in Berlin.

Global Vice President IBU Utilities
