Slideshow: Richard Branson and Al Gore highlight SAP’s Sapphire 2010

Orlando — In addition to a number of news announcements, educational opportunities and insight into the company’s roadmap and vision for the future of enterprise computing, attendees at business software vendor SAP AG‘s (NYSE: SAP) annual Sapphire user conference also got a dose of celebrity.

Among the keynoters at Sapphire were flamboyant British entrepreneur Richard Branson, slightly-less flamboyant former U.S. Vice-President turned environmental crusader Al Gore, and a surprisingly funny Colin Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State.

Take a closer look at the key messages of Sapphire, and what SAP’s famous guests had to say, in this CDN Slideshow:
