SAP TechEd Topic Top 10 - 2016

Final episode coming up, this week in Barcelona - celebration of 20 years SAP TechEd.

Flying to Barcelona this morning seemed like a nice moment to browse through SAP TechEd content once again. Time to create another SAP TechEd Topic Top 10. Somehow I forgot to do so in the past 2 years. But for any other SAP TechEd dinosaurs like me, you can have a look at the 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 ones.

Here we go:

#Last yearTopic# Sessions
510Business Objects 39
66SAP HANA Cloud Platform36
107Internet of Things13

Just outside of the Top 10 are Predictive (12), API Management (9), Hybris (9), UI5 (7).

This Top 10 is populated by filtering the Title column on the above topics in the excel with all SAP TechEd sessions. I’ve only included the Lectures and Hands-on sessions (459 sessions).
  • HANA on 1, that is no surprise, holding its top position since 2013. 
  • Business Objects shows a strong increase in sessions, due to the Business Objects Cloud.
  • No UI5 in the top 10? Maybe if I combine all user experience related topics: Fiori (57) + UI5 (7) + UX (6) + SAP Screen Personas (5) + Build (3) + Splash (1) – that adds up to 79 sessions and a nice 2nd place in the Top 10 ;-)
  • Personally I was a bit surprised to not find the Web IDE (4) on a higher position. But no worries, in all Fiori, HCP, Mobile, Build sessions you’ll have enough time to play around in the Web IDE.
  • Another surprise was Process Orchestration (7) and Integration Services (3), it looks like the integration topic is not so popular any more. Bit strange with all the cloud and on-premise hybrid landscapes, still an important one in all architectures.

Look forward to next year and see how topics like Machine Learning (2), Cloud Foundry (2), Hybris as a Service (4) and Open Stack will find their ways higher in the top 10.

For reference the 2015 Top 10

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 .
