March 8-11, 2015
Hyatt Regency, Huntington Beach, CA

North America’s most comprehensive program designed specifically for the SAP EAM community

The SAP-Centric EAM conference is the go-to event for maintenance managers and SAP EAM executives to stay current on forward-thinking strategies, best practices and critical solutions for Enterprise Asset Management (SAP PM). It is an interactive experience rather than a sit-and-listen conference and showcases case studies, expert training and ample time to share ideas and experiences with fellow attendees. Join the global network of users, decision-makers, partners, SAP experts, analysts and more, over a decade in the making.

Speakers

The SAP-Centric EAM speaker lineup is an incredibly diverse mix of experts, analysts, customers and thought leaders from across the SAP EAM landscape, representing numerous industries and cross-functional teams. They were carefully chosen by the Conference Advisory Committee.
