SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAPHCI) CodeJam and podcast

SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAPHCI) now public available, enough reason for a CodeJam and podcast episode.

June 27th, Guido Koopmann and Igor Mitrovic organized a CodeJam on SAP HANA Cloud Integration, SAP HCI in short. With about 30 participants it is clear that the topic is hot, mostly due to the fact that the cloud integration solution is now available separately. No need to first buy one of the other SAP cloud solutions, the tight integration with SAP HANA Cloud Platform is gone.

Udo Paltzer from SAP joined the CodeJam and shared his enthusiasm with all the participants. HANA Café NL was able to record an episode at the event. You will hear, in English this time, about:

  • The product and its editions
  • Possible use Cases
  • Preconfigured content
  • Partner certification (both for content and adapters)
  • Participant reactions to the CodeJam event

HANA Cloud Integration comes in 2 editions:

  • Standard – Connect 10 systems, 100 GB bandwidth
  • Enterprise – Connect 25 systems, 1000 GB bandwidth

On top of the edition it is possible to buy extension packages to connect more systems or to get more bandwidth. Both the standard and the enterprise edition come as a fixed price per month subscription. Exact pricing will be available any day soon (as stated June 27th).

SAP HCI is not the same as SAP PI (or SAP PO) in the cloud. SAP had to rebuilt the integration engine to make it possible to offer the functionality in the cloud. Zero downtime, multi tenancy, runtime and data isolation all lead to new infrastructure. The mapping engine however is the same for both PI and HCI. That makes is possible to reuse the integration efforts from the past and helps an easier migration in the future.

SAP promised to deliver a new release for SAP HCI every month, which fastens innovation and will help customers to adopt new functionality sooner.

Current available adapters are for SuccessFactors, OData and REST. These adapters will be available for both SAP HCI as well as SAP PI. That also goes for the preconfigured content. Ready to use integration scenarios (SuccessFactors, Cloud for Customer, Learning Management) to speed up your integration implementation. Partners are stimulated to develop their own adapters or integration scenarios. SAP offers a certification program for partner solutions.

Thanks to Udo, Guido and Igor for organizing a great event. And of course thanks to Q for IT for hosting.

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 .
