InnoJam and Design Thinking

SAP made a really nice recap movie from this years InnoJam in Madrid. Being part of the WeCare team, I'm happy to say that we were one of the winners ...

Well organized by SAP and even better supported by all kind of InnoJam Gurus:

InnoJam Guru

Basic concept:
  • Predefined business cases around a theme "Better Cities - Better Lives"
  • Lot of enthusiasts with all kind of expertise
  • Latest and Greatest from SAP toys
  • SAP InnoJam gurus to support you on using the toys
  • Facilitators per team for the Design Thinking part
  • Inspiration, ideas and lots of energy to start working
  • 30 hours time
After the introduction and building the groups the Design Thinking part took off. Being involved in InnoJam's predecessors Process Design Slam and Innovation Weekend - the puzzle now became complete. What a great way to start working on a business case. With the methodology you slowly dive into the matter for a thorough understanding and guidance in your thoughts. 
This sure tastes like more, can't wait to actually use it in 'real-life' projects.

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
