SAP TechEd Top 10 (2010)

Here we go, Top 10 SAP TechEd topics 2010. Just like in 2009 and in 2008. Based on the 417 sessions published on the site I counted the hit ratio on the below listed topics. Not to be taken too seriously, just for fun ;-)

  1. (1, 1) SAP NetWeaver (93 sessions)
  2. (2, 10) Business Objects (45)
  3. (3, 6) ABAP (32)
  4. (5, 4) BPM (22)
  5. (4, 5) BI (18)
  6. (-, -) Sybase (17)
  7. (-, -) Mobile (15)
  8. (-, -) PI (13)
  9. (7, 9) Web Dynpro (12)
  10. (7, 10) Enterprise services (8)
    (-,-) Microsoft (8)
Runners up: Sybase and mobile applications. Looking forward to play around with that next week. And as predicted: Microsoft.
Droppers, not in the Top 10 anymore: Composition Environment (4 sessions, #8 in 2008, #9 in 2009), Java (4 sessions, #3 in 2008, #8 in 2009) and SOA (4 sessions, #2 in 2008, #6 in 2009).

Sybase is no surprise. Just as Business Objects wasn't last year. Java dropped out of the Top 10. Looking back at SAP TechEd 2009 you could predict that to happen. Last year all Java sessions were hidden somewhere at the end of the venue...

Prediction 1: A lot of demo's will be on base of Sybase platform.
Prediction 2: A lot of demo's will be presented with an iPad.

Some promotion on agile: Please attend my session PMC236, Applying agile to a Service-Oriented SAP Project: Mission Impossible?
You can read more on that on my SDN blog Spreading the agile word in the SAP world.

Don’t expect a silver bullet for agile, there is none. I will share our experiences and give you some tips on how to start applying agile to your own SAP project.

See you next week in Berlin, by the way I am wearing number 87 this time ;-)

SAP TechEd 2013, the best and strangest experience ever

SAP TechEd 2013 - The best but also the strangest SAP TechEd ever Together with 10 colleagues I visited SAP TechEd in November 2013. Tim Burchartz - Jaap van de Mheen - Frank Hammen - Michael Hardenbol - Steven Spronk Twan van den Broek - Roel van den Berge - Ted Castelijns - Maarten Kreijveld (Missing on the pic: Leo van Hengel and Wim Snoep, who attended one day due to busy customer schedule) Best Team CloudSitter won the SAP InnoJam on Monday with an app that monitors new born baby’s on their wellbeing. Premature babies have an higher risk on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome , that’s why we came up with a sensor that tracks heartbeat, temperature and breathing. Information is stored in a central database in which thresholds can be validated. If there is reason to warn, the mobile app sends an alarm and changes color. Time to check upon your child.
