VNSG DemoJam 2012

A personalized dashboard at a glance

What about entering your office in the morning and get a personalized dashboard at a glance? That was our DemoJam idea that we brought to stage at VNSG last week.

Our script:
  • Motorman Stoei enters and gets the train schedule presented
  • Manager Broekemans enters and sees the motorman delay dashboard
  • As this is not the first time Stoei has serious delays on his schedule, Broekemans decides to ask for a demotion 
  • HR manager de Vries has the UWL as a personal dashboard and sees the request from Broekemans
  • As she agrees with Broekemans, she approves the request. Within SAP HR Stoei gets demoted
  • When Stoei passes the dashboard again, he notices that he has a new job: moving coals to the oven

What did we use:
  • Kinect camera for face recognition
  • Microsoft Visual Studio to build face recognition software
  • SAP HR for organizational structure
  • SAP BO for motorman delay dashboard
  • SAP Portal and UWL for task list
  • A lot of spare time ;-)
The result:
  • When we got on stage as fifth DemoJam team the internet connection was broken, and so was the VPN connection to SAP :(
  • After a reset we were able to start our show
  • During the show, around 3:15, the internet connection was down again. The web service call to SAP dropped an error
  • We didn't get the connection up again and sooner than we expected the given 5 minutes were already gone :(
  • The YouTube movie shows you how our demo should have looked on stage.

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
