SAP TechEd Las Vegas – Day Five

Friday 29th October 2017 was the final day of SAP TechEd Las Vegas 2017.

My personal takeaways from SAP TechEd 2017

After a couple of days with too many interactions meeting new people and an overflow of information, it is difficult to synthesize all that I saw and heard during the three days of TechEd in a couple of sentences.
