In the last few CodeTalks I have spoken to 3 of our SAP Developer Heroes. These guys have been out in the 'wild' presenting SAP Technology etc to areas that some may never have see SAP before! Check them out below...

Just over two years ago SAP Developer Relations became one of the sponsors of a really excellent little book centered around Mobile Technology and the Developer. This agnostic guide to all things good & question you wanted to ask is curated by Enough Software from Germany and has over 20 authors, of which I am one. My chapter of on Enterprise Mobility.

 

In the latest SAP CodeTalk, which is below, I managed to get 10 minutes with Marco Tabour of Enough Software, to discuss all about the MDGG

 

 

The guide can be downloaded from here

Before the end of last you you may have seen Craig Cmehil's Blog post on IoT HANA and a temperature sensor scenario (here). After we worked on the example I started to play with Apple's WatchKit under NDA, but as that is all common knowledge now, and the watch up for pre-order, I'd like to tell you what I did.

 

I extended the example so the watch could, through a Apple Watch Glances, see the current temperature registered by my sensor and the maximum/minimum temperatures that have been set for my sensor. Then from an Apple Watch App I could change the maximum/minimum temperatures that Craig had set in a control table.

In my personal opinion, over the last few years the wearable market has been ‘dipping its feet’ in the big ocean of the main-stream consumer. I say dipping because, until now it has really only been on the horizon of the techie/innovators/early adopters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology_adoption_lifecycle).

Fitness devices such as the Jawbone Up/Fitbit have been confined to those that are interested in tracking fitness etc and only those interested in the Startup scene or KickStarter market have adopted Smartwatches such as the Pebble/MetaWatch. Even big tech companies such as Samsung and Motorola have had limited success, so far.

 

Love them or hate them, this Friday Apple will launch the Apple Watch, after some thought and design, on their part. With the support of the iPhone/iOS ecosystem behind it, it is sure to be a big winner, not just for themselves but for making the wearable market mainstream*. In a twitter conversation this morning with my friend & broadcaster David McClelland @DavidMcClelland, he nicely stated that ‘Apple has a precedent for resetting the market it enters’ and I could not agree more. This is when the Wearable Market gets real! and the Rogers' Bell Curve of the Innovation Adoption Lifecycle implodes!

 

*I believe this is a Win:Win for everyone, as the mainstream market will now be taken for real, boosting usage and adoption for every manufacturer of wearable tech, in the Consumer Market and the Business Market alike!


But it should be all about benefit to the user!

 

iOS users have seen some Apple App Store updates over the last few weeks, with Apps extending their reach to the wrist & Apple Watch and this is only the beginning, though not all Apps will go that way and should not go that way! Remember it is all about glance and short interactions that can replace those interactions, that would have meant you removing your iPhone from your pocket. Though, even though I say that, we will probably see new and currently unthought-of use cases appear over the next few months as the market grows and users get to grips with wearable tech as part of their day-to-day mobile interactions!

 

The Watch is ticking!
