Show will go on for SAP user conferences in Spain

After assessing the impact of labor strikes, SAP officials have decided to move forward with the Tech Ed and Sapphire events

SAP now says it will proceed with two major user conferences set for Madrid next month, after saying earlier this week that it was weighing its options following concerns over labor strikes planned for the same time as the shows.

But the company has also decided to take some precautions and tweak the events' schedules.

"After a review of the potential impact of the general strike and demonstrations called for November 14 on Sapphire Now SAP TechEd, we will be proceeding with some adjustments to the agenda and increased transportation services as we do anticipate possible inconveniences on the day of the strike," SAP said in a message on the events' website.

Workers in Spain, Portugal and Greece are planning simultaneous demonstrations against economic austerity measures.

The main portions of Tech Ed and Sapphire Now are set to run Nov. 13-16, along with a number of pre-conference events on Nov. 11-12.

SAP is expected to give showgoers a major update on its cloud applications strategy, among other news.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
