Title:         "How You Can Improve SAP Performance"
When:          Thursday, March 7, 2013
Time:          10 a.m. Eastern time / 3 p.m. GMT
Presenters     George Lawrie, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester
               Research; Daniel Poulter,
              Senior Product Marketing Manager, BT
Why:           SAP systems are complex due to their size, the integrations
               with other applications and the
              customization needed to meet organizations' specific business
               and organizational needs.
              Therefore, maintaining these systems is time-consuming and
               costly. In the end,
              organizations only benefit from the SAP application if the new
               business processes are
              more efficient and if user adoption is massive.
              Poor SAP performancedamages not only user adoption but also
               the business and a
              company's overall performance. The key is to manage SAP
               performance from the end-user
              perspective; yet, few understand how to diagnose the
               causes—many of which occur
              outside the SAP application itself—of poor SAP user experience.
              Leading-edge companies such as BT have found new, innovative
               ways to resolve this
              issue. Using its BT Connect Applications portfolio, BT has
               optimized its SAP applications,
              improving performance by as much as 43 percent.
What:          During this free webcast, attendees will learn:
              -- how companies approach SAP modernization efforts while
               preserving same levelsof service;
              -- why problems seen as "SAP problems" may not be SAP problems
               at all;
              -- how to detect, capture and quantify poor SAP user experience
               before end users callthe help desk;
               -- how application performance managementsolutions can
              complement the SAPsolution manager with no interference with
               the SAP system; and
              -- what recommendations BT are providing their customers in
               order to optimize SAPperformance.
