SAP Inside Track InnoJam NL tips for participation

Another get together at our HANA Café NL, this time:
  • Fred Verheul
  • Roel van den Berge
  • Ronald Konijnenburg
  • Twan van den Broek
We discussed the InnoJam event that takes place June 20/21 in Den Bosch.

Name change

SAP wants to reserve the “InnoJam” name for its own events as a prequel to SAP d-code. For community (VNSG) based events the “SAP Inside Track” name is used. So together: SAP Inside Track InnoJam NL sitinnojamNL in short.


The InnoJam concept remains the same. We’ll start with Design Thinking to get a deep dive into the business cases. Theme for this year is to help prevent the elderly to get into isolation.
Some ‘die-hard’ developers may ask why to join Design Thinking, that’s only for designers. We advice you to join and experience the added value of Design Thinking. It helps you to:

  • get to know your team mates
  • really understand the business case
  • work towards your final solution


Participants get a step ahead at the selection of this years DemoJam participants. And the winner gets even more steps ahead ;-) SAP decided to do so to distinguish between DemoJam entries that are developed in a lab with a high budget. Of course when you have built something real cool that is innovative you will still have a proper chance of participating at DemoJam.


  • Design Thinking // Friday 9:00 – 17:00
  • Coding // Friday 17:00 – Saturday 15:00
  • Finals // Saturday 15:00

Tips for participation

  1. Enjoy!
  2. Make sure your team activities are coordinated. You can implement scrum and make sure the real important things get done.
  3. Distribute the activities amongst team members. A backend developer can do backend developments, a functionalist can do background research and prepare story. However also take personal wishes into account. When a backend developer wants to do the frontend stuff, make use of this opportunity to do so.
  4. Ask questions and let the onsite experts help you

Join us at the InnoJam event and have a unique chance to play with SAP’s latest and greatest stuff. Team diversity is crucial, so participation is open to all. Developers, functionalists, project managers, business consultants, designers, …

See you June 20!

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 .
