SAP TechEd 2011 Top 10

Next week we can experience the SAP TechEd in Madrid. Time to do a session analysis. Based on the titles from the 278 scheduled sessions I created the SAP TechEd 2011 Top 10.

  1. (1, 1, 1) SAP NetWeaver (66 sessions)
  2. (2, 2, 10) BusinessObjects (30)
  3. (7, -, -) Mobility (19)
  4. (-, -, -) HANA (16)
  5. (3, 3, 6) ABAP (15)
  6. (4, 5, 4) BPM (14)
  7. (8, -, -) PI (14)
  8. (5, 4, 5) BI (11) 
  9. (-, -, -) Portal (10)
  10. (-, 8, 3) Java (8)
Between brackets results from (2010, 2009 and 2008).

  • It will be no surprise that Mobility is hot, very hot. This year on nr. 3. 
  • And *BANG*, out of nowhere on nr.4 we have HANA.
  • Well, well, Java is back in the list again. Who would have expected that after the kiss of death ;-) 
  • And what about the portal, 10 scheduled sessions on the SAP Portal, where some of us have stated that the portal died.
  • Bit strange that Sybase (6, -, -) has only 6 scheduled sessions. Probably contained within the mobile sessions.
  • Also strange that Microsoft (10, -, -) ended up at nr. 17 with only 3 sessions on Duet and SharePoint.
  • Runners up this year are On-Demand, Gateway, ByDesign and InMemory all with 5 sessions. Bit surprised though as I expected Gateway to end up higher in the list.

See you all next week in Madrid.

What about virtual / augmented reality and UI5?

This years #UI5Top5 does not include AR/VR apps. What do you think? When will we meet AR/VR in a business context? Do you want a UI5 Top 5 in 2019 or do we focus on Immersive Experience (Augmented, Virtual, Mixed and Assisted Reality) in stead?
