#sitNL - The saga continues

sitNL2014 v1.png

For the 6th time Dutch SAP enthusiasts gather together on a Saturday, just right after SAP TechEd. Oh wait, just after SAP d-code ;-) We all know that the SAP world is changing rapidly as we speak. So times are changing (a great song from Bob Dylon).


  • SAP TechEd is rebranded to SAP d-code, and the program now offers a lot of new knowledge exchange opportunities. 
  • Until recently we talked about the SAP NetWeaver platform, but as HANA is not ‘only’ an in memory database, we now explain the SAP HANA (Cloud) Platform to our customers. 
  • sitNL started in Eindhoven, in the southern part of the Netherlands. But we had to move to a new location. We will move about 20 kilometers to the north to ‘s Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch in short). Home of SAP NL and SAP partners like The Next View. We will move to the office of The Next View. 
  • The working space of SAP technicians and business intelligence folks is merging more and more. Something that we needed to reflect in our agenda, that why we offer a third track this year. A track dedicated to the latest and greatest on SAP BI.

Not changed, never change a winning concept

  • A technology and a d-code recap track. 
  • Sessions that last 30 minutes max with a very sophisticated time-boxing tool.
  • Enough chatting and gathering time with breaks for coffee, lunch and drinks. 
  • Our one and only SAP SCN quiz master Sven van Leuken
  • Live podcast recording for both the Dutch BI podcast and HANA Café NL
  • High quality sessions by peers from the SAP community. 
  • And yes, dinner prepared and offered by Haseenah Penninkhof.

So, we’re happy to invite you

  • November 29th in Den Bosch (‘s Hertogenbosch)
  • The Next View Office (Different location), next to SAP HQ NL
  • Amerikastraat 3

SAP TechEd 2013, the best and strangest experience ever

SAP TechEd 2013 - The best but also the strangest SAP TechEd ever Together with 10 colleagues I visited SAP TechEd in November 2013. Tim Burchartz - Jaap van de Mheen - Frank Hammen - Michael Hardenbol - Steven Spronk Twan van den Broek - Roel van den Berge - Ted Castelijns - Maarten Kreijveld (Missing on the pic: Leo van Hengel and Wim Snoep, who attended one day due to busy customer schedule) Best Team CloudSitter won the SAP InnoJam on Monday with an app that monitors new born baby’s on their wellbeing. Premature babies have an higher risk on Sudden Infant Death Syndrome , that’s why we came up with a sensor that tracks heartbeat, temperature and breathing. Information is stored in a central database in which thresholds can be validated. If there is reason to warn, the mobile app sends an alarm and changes color. Time to check upon your child. Matt presenting at InnoJam. Winning InnoJam meant that we could also participate in DemoJam , the ultimate stage for
