Please join us on April 12th at a local Microsoft office for the next arcCouncil meeting on Microsoft and SAP Interoperability. Microsoft and SAP are strategic technology providers for thousands of the world’s most successful businesses. If you rely on our products but have not yet integrated their use, you could be missing out on opportunities to trim IT spending, streamline operations, and improve the overall effectiveness of your business. Architects often find confusing messages and little guidance on how to best apply the appropriate technologies. Microsoft is using this arcStream to provide you with more information about how to better integrate the Microsoft and SAP solutions to extend the value of your existing investments across the enterprise.
About the arcCouncil:
arcCouncils are bi-monthly meetings of industry architects and feature guest presentations by Microsoft product architects, industry luminaries and customers. An arcCouncil is one several offerings provided under the Microsoft arcStream program. Launched last fall by Microsoft, arcStream is the premier technical program for architects in the East and provides a constant flow of technical information as well as networking opportunities for enterprise, solution, infrastructure and aspiring architects.
Lunch is provided and all attendees will have the opportunity to win an XBox 360. If you are interested in attending the arcCouncil follow the appropriate registration link below.
