SAP TechEd 2012Â in Las Vegas has come and gone and 1CloudRoad put together few highlights of the keynotes.
He then proceeded by callingÂ Vishal SikkaÂ on stage.
DR Vishal Sikka took the stage and kicked things off. This is the first time I hear him speak. Very strong speaker who has great charisma. I especially like his joke about the Italian Godfather in the Las Vegas Casino. At one point he even points out his buddies in the audience who possibly didn’t get much sleep the night before. The theme of his monologue was about about how everything around us is changing. Technology is empowering individuals to expand their reach. Servicing the end user requirements is a major key point.
