Ever wonder if the biggest issues within your organization are shared amongst other chemicals organizations? Each year, Eventful Conferences conducts extensive, months-long research inside the chemicals industry to determine what challenges are most commonly experienced. Through customer-centric roundtable discussions, one-on-one conversations with industry professionals, and even SAP themselves, five high-level themes emerged this previous year as we these findings were formulated into one conducive report: Best Practices for Chemicals Hot Topics Research Report.


Hottest topics inside the chemicals space include:

  1. Analytics – Data & Decisions
    • Big Data & Reporting
    • Technology Enabling Better Decisions
  1. Technology – Strategic & Future
    • S/4HANA: Finance & Logistics
    • Leonardo, IoT & Blockchain

Setting the stage for 2018’s #BP4Chem conference agenda, attendees and speakers alike will take a deep dive into these themes to explore innovative solutions to their business trials. A sample analyses of the category focused on “Rapid Change – World & Technology” will give insight to questions such as:
