Hilti, the leading supplier of tools, consumables, services and solutions for the construction industry, based in Liechtenstein, proved its early adopter strategy with SAP when the company kicked off the move to SAP S/4HANA back in 2017 and successfully finished the transition in November 2018. Two years later, Hilti has nearly unrivaled experience and expertise with SAP S/4HANA. Hilti’s Head of IT Infrastructure, Christoph Baeck, will speak in this keynote about the learnings the Hilti team made on this journey with his team and technology partners. You’ll learn about the impact of good partnerships and detailed test planning and execution as key factors for success. In addition, he will share some thoughts on why Hilti is running SAP S/4HANA on premise today – and where he wants to go tomorrow.
