For the 6th time Dutch SAP enthusiasts gather together on a Saturday, just right after SAP TechEd. Oh wait, just after SAP d-code ;-) We all know that the SAP world is changing rapidly as we speak. So times are changing (a great song from Bob Dylon).
SAP TechEd is rebranded to SAP d-code, and the program now offers a lot of new knowledge exchange opportunities.
Until recently we talked about the SAP NetWeaver platform, but as HANA is not ‘only’ an in memory database, we now explain the SAP HANA (Cloud) Platform to our customers.
sitNL started in Eindhoven, in the southern part of the Netherlands. But we had to move to a new location. We will move about 20 kilometers to the north to ‘s Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch in short). Home of SAP NL and SAP partners like The Next View. We will move to the office of The Next View.
The working space of SAP technicians and business intelligence folks is merging more and more. Something that we needed to reflect in our agenda, that why we offer a third track this year. A track dedicated to the latest and greatest on SAP BI.
Not changed, never change a winning concept
A technology and a d-code recap track.
Sessions that last 30 minutes max with a very sophisticated time-boxing tool.
Enough chatting and gathering time with breaks for coffee, lunch and drinks.
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 somewhere
