SAP TechEd 2009 Top 10

It is SAP TechEd Season, every year it is the same story: how to select out of 256 session and build your personal agenda. While browsing through all the sessions I kept a small Top 10 of SAP TechEd topics (*):

  1. (1) SAP NetWeaver (88 sessions)
  2. (10) BusinessObjects (25)
  3. (6) ABAP (16)
  4. (5) BI (16)
  5. (4) BPM (15)
  6. (2) SOA (10)
  7. (9) Web Dynpro (9)
  8. (3) Java (8)
  9. (8) Composition Environment (6)
  10. (7) Enterprise Services (5)
Between brackets the results from 2008.
So what can we learn?
  • Java dropped down to #8, ABAP raised to #3. Investments in ABAP paying off?
  • Business Objects climbed to #2, with BI on #4 a lot of 'suit' sessions are entering the SAP TechEd schedule. BO and BI are not real 'geeks', they are suits playing with technology ;-)
  • SOA is falling down to #6. The hype is over?
  • BPM lost one place to BI. I would have thought that BPM would climb some places this year.
  • Runner up topics: Xcelsius (3) and Sustainability (3)
(*) Disclaimer: This Top 10 is a result of filtering the Title column on specific words. It is for fun only and I do not claim that this is the single truth.

That's an interesting trend you spotted. I hope actual Teched content won't follow those numbers though...

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?
