SAP & eCl@ss Theme Day on May 21, 2019


Attention: New date!

The SAP Asset Intelligence Network enables eCl@ss data to be shared on a cloud-based platform. For example, a manufacturer provides master data for a specific model. Customers who use this machine or component can import the data into their systems and link it to existing master data. In this way, the data remain up-to-date without the time-consuming manual work and media breaks.

The 'SAP & eCl@ss' theme day is directed at manufacturers, service providers and plant operators who would like to learn more about the potential of SAP AIN in connection with eCl@ss. On the basis of concrete best-practice examples we offer the exchange with users and SAP experts answer concrete questions. The focus is on practical use in everyday business.
