Think Tanks connect you with peers navigating the same challenges and opportunities as you. ASUG will facilitate an interactive peer-to-peer exchange where solutions are shared for topics specific to your role and interest.

In this Think Tank, we will discuss how SAP S/4HANA efficiently supports wholesale distribution throughout the sales order process. With so many variables, including availability, other customer commitments, and P&L impact, organizations are challenged with making this process efficient. Special emphasis will be placed on areas where ECC6 and SAP S/4HANA differ. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk with SAP experts. 

The format for Thursday, Aug. 27 at 2 p.m. CT will include: 

  • Brief welcome and kickoff from ASUG 

  • Rapid case study led by ASUG member Susanne Adam from SAP 

  • Sharing of recent wins or successes, along with resources utilized 

Gain visibility into the challenges and successes other SAP customers are experiencing, and acquire new ideas for real-world solutions.
