Jeff Word
Killer use cases at Centerpoint part I and part II
How to make use of the possibilities that SAP HANA Platform offers. These two episodes explain how agents of a utilities call center are supported with predictive analysis. Customers are ‘mind read’ and when a customer calls the agent ‘knows’ what the customer is calling about.

Vinnie Mirchandani
SAP Nation 2.0: The Bigger Story
Vinnie is working on his successor of SAP Nation. Initially to address the launch of S/4HANA, but along the way customer stories and the troubles in aligning SAP acquisitions got to his writing table. Will be an interesting read.

Recap CodeJam Internet of Things with SAPHCP

http://scn.sap.com/servlet/JiveServlet/showImage/38-122043-660853/denbosch.jpg

May 29 2015, about 25 developers gathered at The Next View for another great SAP CodeJam event. This time all about Internet of Things with SAP HANA Cloud Platform. There is a lot to find online and here on SCN regarding theiot topic. It is a hot topic, some even call it the ‘new mobile’. But, as we have discussed that during the podcast, it’s not the new mobile as IoT has a much broader impact on both our personal as well as on our business lives.

With the newly announced (SAPPHIRE NOW 2015) IoT services for SAPHCP, SAP is really helping out developers to use the platform for IoT scenarios. With SAP’s tools you are facilitated in the development process so that you can focus on the actual scenario that you want to realise. And SAP promises to deliver much more new IoT services in the near future. Look forward to that …

Professional Scrum Master \o/

Since 2009 I am a big fan of doing scrum, especially in SAP projects. I know there is a lot of fuzz going on around scrum, again especially in SAP projects ;-) But I am convinced that using scrum will really help you to fulfil your customer needs. Not the needs that have been defined some time ago, but the actual requirements to support business challenges. Requirements that can change along the way, just like business challenges.
In the years since 2009 I've done a lot of talks on scrum, coached a lot of projects but 'forgot' to certify myself... So that was my personal challenge early May.

Last Saturday we participated in a Land Rover Experience with a few colleagues from The Next View. 4 Defenders and some rough terrain to go through - what an experience. Really amazing what a Defender can do.
