The concept of "Intelligent Enterprise" was at the center of SAP's recent Sapphire Now conference in Orlando, Florida. SAP wants to be a key architect and partner for enterprises that are evolving and digitally transforming to make IT the heart of the business. In essence, it is about enterprises leveraging data to become more automated, improve business outcomes, and build customer intimacy through mass personalization.
