Join us March 14 – 16 in Las Vegas for the opportunity to hear stories and best practices from our customers, learn about our newest innovations, and find out how SAP Ariba is redefining the future of business commerce. I personally view SAP Ariba Live as its own entity, encapsulating and shining a spotlight on innovations, and providing an arena for looking ahead together with our customers and partners.


Making it simple, smart and open

Don’t miss the chance to hear Alex Atzberger, President of SAP Ariba showcase SAP Ariba’s vision, road map, and key innovations.

The theme of SAP Ariba Live is simple, smart, and open. Running smart and fast—that’s table stakes. But your business can’t get there without simplifying, streamlining, and being open to every sharp turn on the road to success. And you’ll also need ideas, information, and inspiration. Make SAP Ariba Live an essential part of your journey as you define your strategies and scale your businesses to enable business commerce.


Speakers from Shark Tank, WIRED magazine, and NYU

The three keynote speakers at SAP Ariba Live will push you to think outside the box, expand your awareness of emerging technology trends, and begin to see how those trends can elevate products and services to drive significant value and investment. They’ll challenge you to see how to drive a successful business by embracing technology, and to imagine how corporations can be at the forefront of change in life and in business. These three thought leaders will invite thinking and collaboration amongst all attendees—giving you inspiration to last long after you unpack your suitcase. They are:
