In total you can choose out of 1353 options. Good luck with that ;-) How is the SAP TechEd Top 10 put together? With the excel download I filtered the Title column on specific keywords, like HANA. For each topic the number of sessions is counted and that delivers a Top 10. 1.        (1,1,1,1) SAP NetWeaver (81) 2.        (4, -, -, -) HANA (59) 3.        (3, 7, -, -) Mobile, mobility, Sybase, Syclo (42) 4.        (-, -, -, -) Cloud (21) 5.        (2, 2, 2, 10) Business Objects (20) 6.        (5, 3, 3, 6) ABAP (18) 7.        (9, -, -, -) Portal (16) 8.         (6, 4, 5, 4) BPM, Business Process Management, Orchestration (14)
