SAP NL Forum, Enterprise Mobility back to earth

This year we did some collaboration with our SRM colleagues. Service lines SAP NetWeaver and SAP SRM came up with the idea to bring Enterprise Mobility back to earth. To show so we found dare-devil-colleague Diederick Bossenbroek who agreed to do some abseiling from SAP HQ NL. Together with Jan Laros they first did a presentation on Enterprise Mobility:

  • Nice hype, but what is Enterprise Mobility?
  • Where do I start?
  • What about security?
  • Can you accompany me, I don't like a 'big bang'.

And after convincing Diederick, he came back to earth.

This time we organize an app challenge, send in your idea for an enterprise mobility app. The winner is selected by a Facebook voting mechanism. Everybody is allowed to vote on the ideas, the 3 with the most "Likes" make it to the finals on October 11th. With an explanation of the business case and the enterprise mobility suggestion, a professional jury selects the winner.

Ciber NL offers the winner to realize the app for FREE. To do so we plan a geek night together with customer representatives and our mobile experts. Order some cola and pizza and off we go ...

The Garbage Collector - SAP DemoJam 2012 entry

The Garbage Collector - A cloud solution that simplifies your waste administration process.

Deliver a simplified waste administration process to truck drivers and weigh bridge operators. See how SAP NetWeaver Cloud with SAP NetWeaver BPM and SAP UI5 actually facilitate a process that usually is handled in all kind of paper documents.



The Garbage Collector is a solution for waste companies that want to facilitate their administrative process with their customers. Within a customer self service portal a truck with cargo is pre-announced. At arrival the truck's license plate gets scanned and the appropriate details from SAP will be presented to the operator at the weigh bridge. After the truck is weighed, the weight will be entered into the application and sent to SAP. The process ends with sending an invoice to the customer.
In the case a customer order is not present in the backend system, the application triggers a message that the truck is unknown and the customer details have to be entered before weighing can take place.

That's about it. No more cumbersome paper flows required for operators and truck drivers. Simplification brought to end users.


This is the SAP TechEd DemoJam 2012 entry by Leo van Hengel and me. Hope we can make it on stage.  But we face some serious competition:
