SAP TechEd 2015 – Interest in archiving on the increase again

PBS Software, represented by Walter Steffen and Klaus Zimmer, was once again hosted at the exhibition booths of the PBS partner companies Dolphin and Sigma at the SAP TechEd conference last week. S/4 HANA and cloud solutions were again among the main topics of the event, as well as their implementation in the first customer installations.

Several thousand participants came together in Las Vegas to find out about the latest SAP trends. They had the chance to do this during presentations, roundtable discussions, and question and answer sessions in which PBS solutions were also presented by partners and customers. It was noticeable this year that interest in the topics of Information Lifecycle Management and nearline storage topics was greater than in previous years, something that was clearly reflected by the number of respective presentations and interested participants. A reason for this is surely that Big Data and HANA are increasingly being used in everyday practice. Solutions that enable efficient and inexpensive migrations and afterwards help to keep operating costs within limits are therefore now very much in demand.
