SAP Discovery System for Enterprise SOA

Zojuist een WebEx over het E-SOA Discovery System afgesloten. Het was interessant, vooral de getoone demo sprak erg tot de verbeelding. Hiermee kunnen we onze collega fuco’s en ook de klant echt wat laten zien.
This scenario, which uses standard SAP enterprise services, follows the procurement process through all standard steps, from creating the sales order, analyzing stock, listing suppliers, and requesting quotations through to placing the PO, confirming the order, and receiving the goods. In addition, the scenario supports the four major user roles necessary to procurement: salesperson, purchasing agent, procurement manager, and warehouse manager.

De demo is te zien op SDN, het loont echt de moeite om het filmpje eens te bekijken. Waarom loont het de moeite? Het is een echt business scenario, niet zomaar technische Spielerei. Achtereenvolgens zie je een Adobe form, Analytics application, Web Dynpro application en afsluitend nog een interactive form van Adobe. Zo'n beetje alle nieuwe technische snufjes achter elkaar geplakt in een composite.

Het SAP Discovery system draait op een NW2004s en bevat mySAP ERP 2005, Portal, VC, PI, MDM en BW. Plug en Play, aansluiten en je kunt aan de slag. De getoonde demo werkte compleet op het DS. Eventueel heb je ook de mogelijkheid om een composite te maken met een aansluiting naar je eigen ERP systeem. Dan moet je deze systemen uiteraard wel ergens aan elkaar knopen.

Next steps:

  • Installatie in de partner port om Capgemini intern het systeem te discoveren.
  • SAP deed een verzoek om samen te werken aan high quality showcases of customers. Lijkt me dat we daar op in moeten springen.
  • SAP gaat de komende tijd heel veel pushen op upgrades naar mySAP ERP 2005, alleen dan is e-SOA goed te doen. Lees het artikel op maar eens.
  • Spread the word.

De presentatie was grotendeels dezelfde als op de TechEd (sessie SOA250), daar heb ik hem echter niet gezien. Bezig met CAF en VC enzo, maar daarover later meer.

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 .
