Currently Being Moderated

     9r2 is coming, 9r2 is coming! Are you ready?

 

     Ariba On-Premise Product’s 9r2 version is a well-planned, customer-driven release with impactful features. The process goes back to middle of 2012 and as of October, 2013 we have developed almost all the features for this version. As most of you would have heard in the recent On-Premise User Group, we have few more steps to go before releasing the product in Q2 2014.

 

     In preparation of the release, we have planned a series of webinars to demonstrate and discuss each of the major features. These webinars will happen at 11:00 AM EST on alternate Thursdays, starting October 10th. (Holidays in between are exceptions.) We urge you, your team and your Ariba On-Premise product users to attend these webinars in order to derive maximum benefit from each feature!

 

     The schedule is given below and you can register to each of this webinars using the individual registration link.The recordings of the webinar and the presentations used, if any, will be uploaded here as well.

 

Let the learning begin!
