This week at SAP // 38

SAP TechEd, what else? Last week was the launch of SAP TechEd season 2016. Starting in Las Vegas, flying to Bangalore and finishing in Barcelona early November.

Björn Goerke
Keynote SAP TechEd
Highly recommended! Björn takes you Back to the Digital Future with SAP HANA Cloud Platform. Themed around the Back to the Future movies he shows how easy it is to start your own Digital Transformation by extending your backend ERP to the cloud and develop new applications.

Tom van Doorslaer
If YaaS is the answer, what is the question?
Tom interviews Dennis Schwerer on Hybris as a Service. Where Hybris is a brand name to offer complete applications like the Customer Engagement Center is YaaS the platform to offer and commercialise microservices. Here you can sell your own API's, just like SAP will do. It proves the digital transformation within SAP - in stead of selling licenses for huge applications, SAP now offers pay as you go for microservices with the shopping cart as one of the examples.

What about virtual / augmented reality and UI5?

This years #UI5Top5 does not include AR/VR apps. What do you think? When will we meet AR/VR in a business context? Do you want a UI5 Top 5 in 2019 or do we focus on Immersive Experience (Augmented, Virtual, Mixed and Assisted Reality) in stead?
