This past week the University of Toronto hosted HERUG 2021, SAP Higher Education Research User Group conference. As we reflect back on this informative and enlightening week of presentations and social networking opportunities we would like to share some of our highlights!
The event was a resounding success (600+ attendees, across 33 countries) despite the ongoing pandemic and a lockdown in Ontario Canada. LSI has participated in every HERUG since 1997 (started at MIT) – and we are always amazed by the enthusiasm and knowledge transfer that occurs at these events. Dr. Malcolm Woodfield, Head of the SAP Higher Education Industry Business Unit, reminded us that this was the 2nd virtual event! In 2010, HERUG had to quickly switch to a virtual event due to volcanic eruptions in Iceland which shut down air travel.
It is always exciting to hear how our consultants spend their personal time outside of work, so when we heard that Alli Onni spends her time giving back to the tech community through her involvement with Women Leading Technology, we knew we wanted to learn more! We sat down with Alli Onni, an SAP Organization Change Management Leader at LSI powered by Invenio, to discuss what she is doing to cultivate diversity, inclusivity, and equity awareness in the technology industry. As an Executive Board member of Women Leading Technology, she also shares her insight as to how mentorship and leadership play a role in these efforts.
Dave Carlin is a recent graduate of LSI Grow—our SAP training program—and current Cloud Hosting and Support Associate Consultant. We caught up with Dave to share his insights on the life of a Grow Consultant.
LSI’s municipal government client, The Department of Purchasing and Contracting (DPC) for a major county in California, faced the challenge of mitigating the risks of non-compliance with contractual terms, missed expiration and milestone dates, and lack of resource planning. To address these concerns, DPC enlisted LSI to introduce a single supplier and contract management system. The new system replaced a process that used multiple software systems and was unique to each department's preferences. The objective to replace the current system also required a vital interface to Oracle Financials with a complex integration capability.
On January 29th 2021 12:30 PM EST, LSI Consulting and Penn State University had the opportunity to present at the ASUG Public Sector and Government Influence Council. The successful presentation contained few slides and mostly a live demo of the up and running system.
