An interactive session all through. The event witnessed executives from various sectors like – pharma, hospitality, IT, application services, finance and more, who discussed their workload challenges.

While most present showed a readiness to learn how taking business workloads to Azure would prove beneficial in the long run, the informed lot were more inclined about learning Azure back-up plan, data structure, sector-oriented advantages, possibilities of seamless integrations, Power BI, SAP HANA on Azure to name a few.

After an enriching session on various SAP challenges and discussions on Azure business value proposition, the stage was conferred to the next speaker in line, Balaji Kandregula, Head of Analytics.

A cloud-based, platform-agnostic solution (Web, iOS, Android, Windows), devoid of form-factor limitations (mobile, web, desktop) that enables anytime, anywhere access for optimal travel and expense management.
