Ready, steady, Barcelona!

Next week I join the Attunity Gold Client team and thousands of SAP professionals from across Europe who will be descending on Barcelona to take part at the SAP TechEd in Spain. Hot on the heels of last month’s SAP TechEd in Las Vegas, Europe’s 2015 host city might not have as many casinos and dancing fountains, but it is filled with quirky art and architecture, and a vibrant Spanish street scene, including tasty Tapas bars and Las Ramblas. This is a tremendous opportunity to share, collaborate, network and gain access to SAP subject matter experts.
