SAP TechEd Topic Top 10 edition 2017

With a bit of delay it is time to announce the SAP TechEd Topic Top 10 - edition 2017. Just like in 2016 I've gone through the list of sessions that were provided in Barcelona.

It is a simple process, just for fun purposes. All sessions are in an excel and I filter only the 2hr and 4hr hands-on workshops, lectures and the CodeJam mini editions (in total 520 sessions). Next is to count the number of sessions on a specific topic. List that out, sort and you'll get an SAP TechEd Topic Top 10 ;-)

For all you nostalgic types: some history in the 2016, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 ones.

Here we go:

#Last yearTopic# Sessions
13Cloud160 (+88)
22S/4HANA87 (+14)
36SAP Cloud Platform85 (+49)
41HANA (excluding S/4HANA, BW/4HANA)75 (-32)

6--Machine Learning36 (+19)
77Mobile20 (-9)
88ABAP16 (-7)
9--Cloud Foundry14 (+12)

Rising stars, new in the Top 10

  • Machine Learning 
  • Cloud Foundry

Lost topics

  • Business Objects, last year at 5 with 39 sessions, this year at 11 with 13 sessions. 
  • Security, at 9 last year. This year at 12 with 12 sessions

Topics just outside of the Top 10

  • UX (13 sessions)
  • SAP Leonardo (12)
  • BW, BI, BW/4HANA (12)
  • Big data (12)
  • Predictive (10)
  • Blockchain (10)

Some insights

  • If I add all UX related together (Fiori, UX, UI5, Build, CoPilot, Screen Personas), there is a total of 76 sessions, that would make it to the 4th place.
  • Look forward to 2018, what will happen with ABAP now that you can also bring the ABAP language to SAP Cloud Platform

What do you think, what should be in the SAP TechEd Top 10 - edition 2018? Machine Learning higher? Blockchain? Predictive? Or how to create addons to S/4HANA?

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 .
