So You Think You Can Innovate

Tomorrow is a great day with the CIBER NL finals for our internal innovation competition:

"So You Think You Can Innovate"

What started out with an idea by Mario Smit, lead to a serious competition. From the original 18 participants presenting their idea in the auditions of May, now only 3 are left to 'fight' the final battle.

Voting will be done with a jury of highly valuated customer representatives, counting for 2/3 of the end result. The remaining 1/3 is the public jury voting with the Twitter hashtag #SYTYCI.

So who is competing tomorrow?

Innovators: Diederick Bossenbroek, Ravi Santani

mTime (#mTime)
Innovators: Jan Willem Kroneman, Leon Zijlstra, Roel van den Berge, Louis van de Wiele

mTime is a ‘lean and mean’ enterprise mobility app which can be used to justify time in a safe, user-friendly and fast way by using a mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android- of Windows-phone).

By using Titanium, as a development tool, the application needs to be developed only one time and can be unrolled directly for different platforms.
mTime connects via Sybase to the SAP backend system.

View on Healthcare (#ZoZ)
Innovator: Luc de Bruijn

“View on Healthcare” is an application that shows plans, based on the ‘life-care plan’ and the indication of the gravity of care required per scheduled appointment – all on a mobile app.

The nurse on duty will always get the most current care plans, through a “care pathway.”  The plan reflects fixed agreements and highlights active problems, preventing expensive and time-consuming errors.
This application will also serve as a ‘file at-hand,’ where on-the-spot additions to the life-care plan can be made and required observations of active problems can be captured, such as wound registration or weight determination.
The application registers how much time was needed for planned tasks, to help quantify and provide an indication of care.

Good luck guys! You can find me somewhere in the back counting all your votes ... eh tweets ;-)

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) SAP NetWeaver (93 sessions) (2, 10) Business Objects (45) (3, 6) ABAP (32) (5, 4) BPM (22) (4, 5) BI (18) (-, -) Sybase (17) (-, -) Mobile (15) (-, -) PI (13) (7, 9) Web Dynpro (12) (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 somewher

Hiking the Grossvenediger with The Next View

In 2014 The Next View celebrates its 5th anniversary. And we did that in style. We all took off to Austria and hiked the Grossvenediger, top 4 of highest mountains in Austria. Hiking route The first day we hiked in pretty good weather conditions to Defreggerhaus. The second day, the hike to the actual summit (The Next Summit ;-) we woke up early and found out that snow covered our route. But that didn't undermine our spirit. We took off and had a great hike. We almost made it to the top, but unfortunately weather conditions (snow and wind) worsened and with the sign in sight we had to return. Look very close, you can see a grey cross somewhere in the top left corner ;-) Back to a safer spot to take our group picture. With Schnapps of course ;-) What an amazing experience. Hiking a 3666 meter high mountain was something completely new for me. Doing that with colleagues was really awesome! More pictures in my Grossvenediger album .
