sitNL2014 v1.png

For the 6th time Dutch SAP enthusiasts gather together on a Saturday, just right after SAP TechEd. Oh wait, just after SAP d-code ;-) We all know that the SAP world is changing rapidly as we speak. So times are changing (a great song from Bob Dylon).

SAP DemoJam CARE-MIT


SAP TechEd && d-code season is happening real soon. In only a few weeks season start is given in Las Vegas. Personally I will attend the Berlin version in November. Next to all the latest and greatest from SAP there is this special night - DemoJam. The ultimate innovation competition for SAP technicians. And yes Leo and I have submitted a proposal. We took the winning concept from SAP Inside Track InnoJam NL earlier this year around CARE-MIT.

Visit SAP AppHaus Heidelberg


Some heavy Design Thinking ;-)

With some fellow SAP Mentors we got invited by SAP's AppHaus in Heidelberg to participate in a two-day workshop about the AppHaus concept. And again I got overwhelmed by the power of Design Thinking. Bring together a bunch of people, give them a challenge, facilitate with whiteboards and post-its and see the energy flow ... a bit bluntly ;-) But still I can recommend to anyone to experience Design Thinking soon.

Hoe werkt Design Thinking? Voorbeeld case met service engineers












Iedereen die betrokken is bij IT implementatieprojecten herkent de situatie dat een project al gestart is met de realisatie terwijl de specificaties nog niet helder zijn. Verschillende projectleden zoals business analisten, technisch architecten en product specialisten gaan individueel aan de slag met de verkregen informatie. Het grote gevaar is dat het oorspronkelijke doel, het ondersteunen van de eindgebruiker, uit het oog wordt verloren. Design Thinking kan de oplossing bieden. Maar wat is Design Thinking en hoe pas je het toe? Ik leg het in deze blog uit aan de hand van een praktijkvoorbeeld.

SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAPHCI) CodeJam and podcast

SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAPHCI) now public available, enough reason for a CodeJam and podcast episode.



June 27th, Guido Koopmann and Igor Mitrovic organized a CodeJam on SAP HANA Cloud Integration, SAP HCI in short. With about 30 participants it is clear that the topic is hot, mostly due to the fact that the cloud integration solution is now available separately. No need to first buy one of the other SAP cloud solutions, the tight integration with SAP HANA Cloud Platform is gone.


SAP’s innovators dilemma

Een nieuwe productstrategie met een volledige nieuw applicatieplatform. SAP vaart duidelijk een nieuwe koers om de huidige technische mogelijkheden optimaal in te kunnen zetten om bedrijfskritische processen te kunnen ondersteunen. Soms dien je je strategie dan ook radicaal aan te passen. De SAPPHIRE stond volledig in het teken van de nieuwe strategie. Hoe kan het nieuwe SAP HANA Cloud platform oplossingen bieden en hoe draagt dit bij aan de versimpeling van je processen?
