SAP TechEd Topic Top 10 - 2016



Final episode coming up, this week in Barcelona - celebration of 20 years SAP TechEd.

Flying to Barcelona this morning seemed like a nice moment to browse through SAP TechEd content once again. Time to create another SAP TechEd Topic Top 10. Somehow I forgot to do so in the past 2 years. But for any other SAP TechEd dinosaurs like me, you can have a look at the 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 ones.


Here we go:

510Business Objects 39
66SAP HANA Cloud Platform36
75Mobile29
88ABAP23
99Security18
107Internet of Things13

Just outside of the Top 10 are Predictive (12), API Management (9), Hybris (9), UI5 (7).

This Top 10 is populated by filtering the Title column on the above topics in the excel with all SAP TechEd sessions. I’ve only included the Lectures and Hands-on sessions (459 sessions).
  • HANA on 1, that is no surprise, holding its top position since 2013. 
  • Business Objects shows a strong increase in sessions, due to the Business Objects Cloud.
  • No UI5 in the top 10? Maybe if I combine all user experience related topics: Fiori (57) + UI5 (7) + UX (6) + SAP Screen Personas (5) + Build (3) + Splash (1) – that adds up to 79 sessions and a nice 2nd place in the Top 10 ;-)
  • Personally I was a bit surprised to not find the Web IDE (4) on a higher position. But no worries, in all Fiori, HCP, Mobile, Build sessions you’ll have enough time to play around in the Web IDE.
  • Another surprise was Process Orchestration (7) and Integration Services (3), it looks like the integration topic is not so popular any more. Bit strange with all the cloud and on-premise hybrid landscapes, still an important one in all architectures.

Look forward to next year and see how topics like Machine Learning (2), Cloud Foundry (2), Hybris as a Service (4) and Open Stack will find their ways higher in the top 10.


For reference the 2015 Top 10
