Dell at the SAP Sapphire NOW 2011 Conference in Orlando, Florida

Spring is in the air, and besides flowers and showers, the coming of May also means that it’s time for the SAP SAPPHIRE NOW 2011 Conference in Orlando Florida. SAPPHIRE NOW, which takes place between May 15th and May 18th, 2011 is touted as the world’s premier business technology event where SAP customers can “discover new initiatives, solutions, products, and services.”
As usual at large tech conferences, Dell will be on hand to help customers do exactly that – discover both our new products as well as comprehensive end-to-end Dell solutions. In addition, Dell representatives and customers will take the lead during numerous conference sessions to demonstrate how Dell and SAP work great together, share best practices, and to advise customers on how to get the most out of their SAP solutions.
If you are attending SAPPHIRE NOW 2011, we hope you can attend the Dell sessions listed below and stop by the Dell Booth #2707 to learn more about Dell and win great prizes.
