The 2013 SAP TechEd Topic Top 10

SAP TechEd in Amsterdam coming up, counting down … 5 days to go. Time to compose an annual SAP TechEd Topic Top 10 . With 955 entries in this years agenda there is enough to choose from.  For the ‘official’ Topics Top 10 I used the sessions download file from the SAP TechEd site and narrowed the list down to cover ‘only’ Lectures and Hands On Workshops, just like I did previously. That list still contained 380 (!) sessions to choose from and to fit in your 3-day agenda ;-) Here we go … (drumroll) … what will be number 1 in 2013? Still SAP NetWeaver ... No, it's HANA. Guess you didn't see that one coming ;-) # Last years Topic # Sessions 1 2, 4, -, -, - HANA 125 2 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 SAP NetWeaver 53 3 3, 3, 7, -, - Mobile (Mobility, Syclo, SMP, Agentry) 46 4 4, -, -, -, - Cloud 43 5 5, 2, 2, 2, 10 Business Objects (Business Intelligence) 25 6 6, 5, 3, 3, 6 ABAP 20 7 -, -, -, -, - SAPUI5 15 8 7, 9, -, -, - Portal 15 9 8, 6, 4, 5, 4 BPM (Process Orche


Another successful SAP CodeJam in the Netherlands. The ABAP on HANA CodeJam in Eindhoven. Organized by Roel van den Berge and hosted by Thorsten Schneider . I surely recommend attending an SAP CodeJam, a day of serious coding on a specific topic accompanied by SAP experts. It is just like an SAP TechEd HandsOn Workshop, but outside of SAP TechEd season ;-) What do you get: Deep knowledge on the topic Hands on exercises  Support by SAP experts Meet up with fellow enthusiasts Great food!! Roel opening the event. Thorsten kicks off the ABAP on HANA coding. Let the fun begin. Sven van Leuken dressed up especially for the event. Coffee, ABAP Code and Coke - what more can you wish for? FUN! The complete event in pictures at Flickr .

SAP Mobile Platform Wishlist

It’s almost that time of the year. A period where you start writing down your wishes in a letter and hope that your wishes get fulfilled … so here we go. Dear Santa, I have been a good boy this year. Please ... (or in business language ;-) Dear SMP Product Owner, SAP TechEd just kicked off today in Las Vegas, so sorry that I can’t join you to hear and learn all about SMP3 now. Glad with the preview blogs by  Jens Koerner  ( SMP3 Launch ) and  John Wargo  ( Kapsel ) and really looking forward to SAP TechEd in Amsterdam. Wish list MDD and its UI Please update the out of the box UI components for all platforms. They are worth investing in and expanding their lifespan. It provides the possibility of having an approach that supports “Build once and Deploy anywhere”, very handy in the enterprise world. The current “Windows 3.1” look and feel is really outdated. With OpenUI coming to the MDD approach (formerly known as Agentry) it will be possible to integr

Run like never before

Just like SAP's slogan " Run like never before " - that's exactly what I did ;-) I ran my second half marathon in Eindhoven . As being a "laptop junky" - I am proud with the results . Hurrah, 1:53:29 !! (My own timing on Runkeeper was not as sharp) Why running? It helps me in 'washing off' the results of a busy day at work. And we all know how busy a day can be. Usually I start running being tired and end up being more fit than before ;-)
