Zürich/ABC - 6th Aug 2019 - The international business event network D:PULSE collaborates with SAP Next-Gen program. This new purpose driven cooperation focuses on accelerating innovations and engaging global networks in the digital future by becoming part of a global movement supporting the UN Global Goals. Together D:PULSE and SAP Next-Gen will bring their communities into a new conversation combining digital technologies and sustainability topics with digital leaders and next-generation thinkers.

The SAP Next-Gen program is a purpose driven innovation university and community for the SAP ecosystem enabling companies, partners and universities to connect and innovate with purpose linked to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). These include high-quality education, gender equality, climate protection, sustainable consumption, promotion of innovation, and more.

D:PULSE is the global business conference network with sustainable impact. D:PULSE is aimed at top decision-makers, visionaries and game changers in the fields of Digital Marketing & Communications, Technology & Innovation as well as Business & Strategy. In unconventional formats and under the slogan "CONNECT / EXPERIENCE / LEARN", D:PULSE inspires collaboration, lead generation, experience exchange, knowledge transfer and inspiration. The dominating and equally groundbreaking focus of the global series of events is the consumer’s perspective in a digitized world. The motto "It's about context, not content" illustrates a decisive added value of D:PULSE and picks up on a strong industry need: the consistent interpretation and foresight of digital changes and the impact for today´s societies with all their interplay.

The organizers Frank Schneider and Christian Muche want to place digitization in a comprehensive context and leverage technology for a better world. The sustainable benefits of technology for business and society are global topics that will be discussed across industries. At the D:PULSE in Zurich, SAP Next-Gen will be presented as a Diamond Partner with a presence in an exclusive BIZ:Lounge area and will continue to support the D:PULSE event series in Vienna, Tokyo and Berlin next year. Furthermore, participants can expect a specially prepared keynote speech by Ann Rosenberg, SVP for UN Partnerships at SAP and Global Head of SAP Next-Gen, on the topic of technologies and their sustainability.

"The vision of SAP is to help the world run better and to improve people's lives through technology. Sustainability plays a critical role in this mission, and we want to support companies in achieving all of the Global Goals. The shared vision with D:PULSE will further expand our network. We look forward to the upcoming events and the active engagement of our strong, global communities," comments Ann Rosenberg, SVP for UN Partnerships and Global Head of SAP Next-Gen.

Christian Muche, Co-Founder of D:Pulse and Member of the Board: “Our goal for this joint commitment with SAP Next-Gen is to enable collaborations to reimagine the digital future of industries and societies with exponential technologies and innovations, seed in disruptive innovation with startups, build skills for digital futures and showcase thought leadership at our conference shows. For us it is of a great importance to highlight the explanatory connections and predictable consequences for today´s consumer communication and marketing world!”

About D:PULSE

D:PULSE is the global business conference network with sustainable impact. The new format is organized by Excitare AG with DMEXCO founders Frank Schneider and Christian Muche, who develop innovative event concepts for the digital industry.

D:PULSE is aimed at top decision-makers, visionaries and game changers in the fields of Digital Marketing & Communications, Technology & Innovation as well as Business & Strategy. In unconventional formats and under the slogan "CONNECT / EXPERIENCE / LEARN", D:PULSE inspires collaboration, lead generation, experience exchange, knowledge transfer and inspiration. The dominating and equally groundbreaking focus of the global series of events is the consumer’s perspective in a digitized world. The motto "It's about context, not content" illustrates a decisive added value of D:PULSE and picks up on a strong industry need: the consistent interpretation and foresight of digital changes and the impact for today´s societies with all their interplay. Instead of common platitudes and already well-known statements, the really relevant and highly topical issues like social and corporate sustainability, responsibility and social impact as well as a consistent customer perspective are in the forefront. The two initiators attach great importance to the explanatory connections and predictable consequences of the current trends and developments and less to familiar keywords. The D:PULSE brand, which has been known since 2017 as an annual eponymous event, reinvents itself completely, addresses additional target groups and expands worldwide.

The D:PULSE Zurich on August 21, 2019 is the network’s kick off event. Further stops follow in Vienna, Tokyo and Berlin.
