Key take-aways from the SAP ALM Summit EMEA


Introduction

From October 18 to 21, 2022 the SAP ALM Summit EMEA took place in Mannheim, Germany. After two years of virtual events only, it was a very welcomed opportunity for over 340 ALM professionals to meet again in person and to get the latest updates from the ALM space!

Key message from SAP

“SAP Cloud ALM is the future!”

The keynotes from Andreas Heckmann, Marc Thier, Stefanie Kübler, Wieland Schreiner and the Chief Product Owners Michael Klöffer and Janko Budzisch painted a clear picture about the ALM strategy: The future is in the cloud, and with SAP Cloud ALM the new flagship for ALM is ready to rumble!

After the summit, Benjamin Schneider, ALM Product Expert at SAP SE and I conducted an interview in which we exchanged views on our key take-aways and derived concrete recommendations.
