Additional insight was given by Nino Marakovic, SVP of SAP Ventures, Alessandra Carvalho Nunes, Program Director of Performance Optimization Applications at SAP Business Objects; Anthony A. Reynolds, Group VP and GM of Enterprise Performance Management at Business Objects, Nenshad Bardaliwalla and Itai Sadan.
