Discover the Integration DNA of the Intelligent Suite from SAP

Come listen to SAP’s Integration Thought Leader and Head of SAP Labs India, Sindhu Gangadharan as she explains how SAP aims to deliver an overall experience across the enterprise for the intelligent suite that is greater than the sum of its parts. Accordingly, SAP offers technologies for integrating applications on all levels, such as user experience, data, processes, and more. Along the journey from on premise–centric application landscapes toward hybrid and cloud environments, customers need to revisit their integration solution strategy. Modern enterprises require a hybrid integration platform supporting cloud, hybrid, and on-premise integration use cases. Furthermore, new concepts are applied for enabling true out-of-the box integration and openness to integrate with non-SAP applications.

Employee Experience That Generates Value for 75,000 Customers

Mobile Mini Inc. is the world’s leading provider of portable storage solutions. The company provides both short- and long-term options to meet the needs of more than 75,000 customers across a wide variety of markets and industries. But operating with disparate HR systems and unreliable data made talent management a challenge. To improve the employee experience so that employees could focus on providing exceptional service and genuine value to customers, Mobile Mini needed to break down data silos and transform its core HR processes. By deploying SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Sales Cloud, Mobile Mini has realized the following;

• a single source of truth for evaluation, messaging and engagement,
• an enhanced and streamlined onboarding experience with a significant decrease in time to hire,
• driven engagement with comprehensive benefit choices, well-being programs and community partnership opportunities,
• incentivized employees with innovative compensation plans including real time commissions,
• reduced employee turnover to improve loyalty
