Episode 2015.18

Jan Penninkhof
Jan collects custom UI5 themes, who wants to support? Add your own theme to the collection.

Andreas Schmitz
Preparations for next weeks SAPPHIRENOW event. Main theme will be S/4HANA, which will be no surprise ;-)
Owen Pettiford
Are you on a burning SAP platform? Make sure that you start your journey towards SAP's new environment. Did you know that support for SAP NetWeaver Java 7.0x ends in 2017? Any Web Dynpro Java applications? What about dual stack PI? Your portal system? 

Craig Powers
A new user interface for Ariba, based on SAP Fiori. With that SAP clearly states that it is serious with the UI5 / Fiori strategy. Important consideration: 

“Supporting Millennials: Don’t Bother with Manuals”

Personally I don't think this is only important to Millennials, you should consider this for all of your end users.

Andreas Hauser
How to setup an UX Center of Excellence? And why should you bother? Realize that 50% of all the UI work on top of SAP is not delivered by SAP but by customers themselves. 

Timo Elliot
Read about Unilevers experiences and remember the most important conclusion:

“The big benefit of the new in-memory architectures isn’t speed, it’s simplicity, and flexibility, and the ability to do things in new ways.

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 .
