CWG - It's Not Just Tech Talk


If you think that an SAP Configuration Workgroup (CWG) conference is only about technology, think again. SAP has hit a revolutionary crossroads where new technology will shape configuration for the next 20 years and beyond. And with this new technology comes vital decisions that could alter the landscape of your business. Which is why our conference is evolving to meet the growing needs of SAP customers in all capacities – including those focused on business solutions.


Still Tech-Focused


CWG has long had a reputation as a techie organization and that our conferences can be rather intimidating for those who are new to configuration or not highly technical. There is some unfortunate truth to this, but it is essentially the nature of the beast. Configuration is a highly nuanced topic where the right solutions and best practices may not be obvious or intuitive. Through CWG presentations and networking opportunities, you can get access to information that you won't find anywhere else. It is not in books, online help, or training. Chances are good that somewhere in the world someone else has faced similar technical challenges to yours, and CWG is the place to find that someone!


Over the years, I have had numerous conference attendees tell me that they spent months searching for answers to tricky technical problems that were answered in a few minutes at our conference. They further tell me that the cost of the conference paid for itself many times over by getting those answers. We always have great presentations about good modeling practices which are the cornerstone of successful and sustainable implementations. We also address topics like functional integration to sales and distribution, production planning, and various other related solution areas. Finally, you have no better access to learn the details about the latest product innovations, updates, and roadmaps from SAP.
