PowerBuilder Developers Conference 2012 - Justification Toolkit: Justification Tips
Attending the PowerBuilder Developers Conference 2012 is the most cost-effective way to get the education and training on SAP Sybase PowerBuilder that you need to most effectively do your job and add value to your organization. By attending this conference, you are able to receive all the PowerBuilder product training you need for the year in only one week, without incurring exorbitant costs.
The most important thing to any organization tends to be the bottom line. Therefore, the first question that most managers will ask when approached about potential training is "How much does it cost?" It's important to be prepared with an answer that includes estimated costs and justification for the expenditure. For assistance with this, check out our ROI Calculator and sample cost-comparison.
There are also many additional benefits that are harder to quantify, including:
- Access to presentation materials from over 30 breakout sessions specific to PowerBuilder and related SAP Sybase products
- Networking opportunities
- Opportunity to interact with PowerBuilder peers and experts
- Exposure to the SAP TechEd audience of 5,000+ attendees
- Post-conference ability to train/assist other staff members internally, using the knowledge you have gained from attending
You may wish to note these as part of your justification (see Customizable Request Letter for Manager's Approval) along with the estimated cost savings.
