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 .
