CHICAGO -- November 20, 2012

Americas' SAP Users' Group (ASUG), the world's largest independent community
of SAP® professionals, today announced the continuation of its Strategy
Builder Series with four webinars dedicated to the SAP HANA® platform. Advance
registration is now open for the sessions, which will be held on four
consecutive Wednesdays beginning Nov. 28.

The Strategy Builder Series is an enhancement to ASUG's Integrated Enterprise
and Infinite ROI initiatives, launched in 2011. ASUG’s Integrated Enterprise
and Infinite ROI initiatives are designed to help organizations of all sizes
and types increase their returns by mastering the latest advancements in
business technology software. The first set of webcasts was introduced in the
spring of 2012 and was devoted to cloud computing, providing SAP professionals
a roadmap to explore cloud deployment based on user insights and customer
success stories. The SAP HANA-focused webcast series will address topics from
getting started with the innovative in-memory technology, to how best to use
the newly introduced cloud-based deployment model for SAP HANA to power
innovative ideas.

“Considerable excitement surrounds SAP HANA and the tremendous potential to
gain competitive advantage from the speed and efficiency of real-time
analytics, but customers still have questions,” said ASUG CEO Bridgette
Chambers. “The ASUG Strategy Builder Series for SAP HANA is designed to help
SAP customers understand, evaluate, and navigate this new frontier and
maximize ROI from SAP HANA.”

Each webcast will provide insights based on real-world examples and case
studies, and include an interactive question-and-answer session to give
participants the chance to connect with the experts.

The first webcast on SAP HANA, Learn How to Get the Advantages of In-Memory
Computing Now, will begin at 12:00 p.m. ET on Nov. 28. SAP will provide a high
level overview of the myriad of entry points to begin taking advantage of SAP
HANA and lay out the key benefits for each. Three additional webcasts will be
held in December:

  *SAP HANA Cloud Deployment Overview -  Dec. 5, 12:00 p.m. ET
  *What Every SAP Customer Should Know About Real-Time Data Platform - Dec.
    12, 12:00 p.m. ET
