Learning day – Building blocks for the High-Performance Workplace

Last Friday was a great day, our learning day with as central theme: the High-Performance Workplace. You can revisit the day by visiting the Flickr set.

A learning day? It is a knowledge sharing day. As an information company we can gain knowledge by sharing it.

A small recap from my site:
  • A boomerang for Jasper, in the hope that he will find the way back after his travel around the world.
  • We can use our ecosystem of ISV’s and partners to get things done, for example: Sweetlets.
  • So what is the High-Performance Workplace? It is a growing subject of which we will hear much more in the future. You can read about it at Gartner’s HPW blog. And you can be part of it by defining what a High-Performance Workplace is. Socialize on the internet, combine your life with your e-life on Hyves, Myspace.com, Flickr and LinkedIn.
  • As TopForce we can bridge the gap between the SAP world and the information worker’s real world.
  • Our mind shift has to change from technology to people.
  • A portal is not a goal. MDM and BI are the cornerstones for a successful High-Performance Workplace. See the HPW as an iceberg, the portal is ‘only’ the tip that is above the waterline. We all know that there is still a whole lot under water.
  • Business is leading and IT is supporting.
  • The main focus must be on the business process.
  • It is about tightly integrated collaboration functionality. The collaboration portal.
  • In this SAP presentation you can also find the next generation portal, a portal with an extreme user interface makeover. (AJAX navigation, Team workspace, Wiki, Discussion forums, Sharepoint integration)
  • But most important to become an unbeatable effective company that is world famous we need a marketing campaign. Maybe we can shoot a video and place it on YouTube. It worked for BearForce ;-) Any volunteers?

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 .
