SAP TechEd

924 Posts

SAP Community Speakers are invited to SAP TechEd Las Vegas since some years now. I am a great fan of this initiative, because it gives the community a voice at SAP TechEd not only by SAP Mentors, but by other active community members too. I always wanted to have it at SAP TechEd EMEA as well. So I am very happy, that this year we will bring communty speakers also to Barcelona.

 

100 persons handed in session proposals for Barcelona and 10 were chossen to repesent the community as a speaker of SAP TechEd. During SAP Inside Track Hamburg 2016 I was able to interview two of them: Timo John, Bonprix Handelsgesellschaft and Ernst Maracke, ind. Consultant.

 

 

If you are at SAP TechEd Las Vegas or Barcelona, don't miss out the sessions of the community speakers. To find them, you chhose "Source" in the session calatog of the events and than select "SAP Community Network".

 

 

I am looking forward to see you in Barcelona!

Hi Everyone,

 

It's quite an honor to be asked once again to present at TechEd.  Thanks again to the team for making this possible.

 

So the next logical question is what will I be talking about this year. Honestly, I think we can all agree that we've covered implementation and upgrade approaches for SAP IDM, so now I'd like to get a little bit more into what we do with Identity Management in my discussion of How SAP IDM Increases Security and Compliance.  As always, this will be based on my various experiences in consulting with clients about how usage of SAP IDM assists with establishing general IT Security, and of course, SAP Security.

 

I'll be using the session to help amplify what SAP has to say about using IDM in the Landscape and Cloud environments in other sessions with real world scenarios, examples, and lessons learned.

 

So is this session for you?

 

  • Do you have an interest in SAP IDM or SAP Security?
  • Do you have concerns about your current compliance setup
  • Would you like to make your security, compliance, and overall infrastructure work together more harmoniously?
  • Would you like to know more about any of the above?

 

If you've answered yes to one or more of these questions, please make a point of bookmarking and attending my presentation.

 

And don't forget:

See you at TechEd in September!

Hi everyone,

 

First off, just like all the others I'm extremely excited to have been selected as a community speaker for SAP TechEd Barcelona. A big thank you to the sapteched team, and to Peter Langner, Katarina Fischer and others who've made this possible.

 

Secondly: I'm proud to announce my session (Session ID ANP126) "Machine Learning, Hype or Hit?" (spoiler alert: both of course ). This session will be a reflection of my own journey into this exciting field.

 

So what to expect from this 1 hour lecture?

 

Well, I'll try to complement the official SAP sessions about machine learning by ignoring the relevant SAP tools and products (these will already be covered in detail in other sessions), and by trying to explain some of the underlying concepts, and how you can get started yourself.

 

Is this session for you?

 

  • If you’re curious to see what’s behind one of the most hyped terms of the moment, this session is for you.
  • If you want to make a start into Data Science and ML, this session is for you, because that’s exactly what I’m doing and I’d love to give some pointers about where to start, and also to find people within the SAP community with the same interests.
  • If you are a developer and wonder if you can use ML yourself, then this session is for you: that’s how I got interested in this stuff myself and the intention is to include some (running) code into the demos.
  • If you want to start a discussion about whether we need ML experts, or whether SAP is right targeting domain experts/analysts with their Predictive Analytics product: join my session, and we might flesh it out together.

 

Also: if you're interested in Machine Learning make sure you attend this SAP Community Call on July 11th: Machine Learning with SAP Innovation Center Network.

 

As Niels Bohr famously said:

Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.

 

This quote from should serve as a warning, but hey, let's try it anyway!

 

I'm intending to post more about Machine Learning over time (leading up to SAP TechEd), but for now I'll leave you with a classic XKCD comic:

And with that: see you in Barcelona!

I am happy to hear that my boss is going to TechEd Barcelona 2016.

I will attend to him, too.

 

He is going to speak about S4HANA migration that we achieve in one of our customers.

Here is the link to his blog. SAP S/4HANA Journey started in Turkey - TechEd Barcelona 2016

I was the technical consultant in this project.

 

This will be my first visit to Teched.

That is another excitement for me.

I have been joining SAP events in Turkey since 2007 but never been to event like Teched.

So this will be another milestone for me in my life.

After joining SCN I met many admired people on scn pages.

I think and hope that this event will give me a chance to meet these people live.

I will have chance to listen SAP experts live.

I will Learn about the new technologies in place.

I will sense the excitement.

...

 

And hope to see you there.

I've been working in SAP ecosystem since 1999 and attended 5 SAP TechEd as an attendee. Now I'm very happy to attend upcoming SAP TechEd Barcelona as a Speaker.

 

When Katarina post the blog "Barcelona wants you! - Call for Speakers from the SAP Community", I accepted the call of nature and applied with our very recent project which started the SAP S/4HANA Journey in Turkey.

 

Very first SAP HANA adaptations in Turkey started with some pilot sidecar scenarios for SAP BW, continued with few SAP BW on HANA and SAP BPC on HANA projects as a new implementation. Some large enterprises decided to move to SAP BW on HANA from their classical SAP BW  environment in recent years. All new SAP implementations mostly starts with SAP HANA and SAP ASE (Critial and core systems on HANA, rest on ASE). And also we now started to hear that some customers started to move to SAP Suite on HANA.

 

But what we've achieved is still the 1st (and will always be) and sole in Turkey.

 

Last year, we've migrated EVE Shop's SAP ERP systems running on SAP HANA to SAP's new generation business suite SAP S/4HANA in 3 months.

 

Eve Shop Success Story

 

We would like to share our experiences during this first SAP S/4HANA migration journey. We will cover the following topics during our session:

 

  • Project goals
  • Customers expectations and their SAP S/4HANA motivations (e.g. See the S/4HANA effect of retail data in profitability analysis)
  • Technical aspects of migration
  • SAP Fiori - expectations, pitfalls, results
  • SAP HANA Live - expectations, pitfalls, results
  • SAP S/4HANA - expectations, pitfalls, results

 

Please, come and join us to listen our experiences and lessons learned from the First SAP S/4HANA Migration Project in Turkey at our Session TEC122.

If it is allowed, we'll welcome you with our traditional delights.

What is Turkish Delight?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_delight

“It is not often the case that we deal with codes developed only by ourselves. Unfortunately, in a fast-changing development environment we  often face with incorrect development approaches, carelessness, or mistakes that lead other mistakes. In this presentation we will focus on the most common development mistakes made by ABAP developers, the results of these mistakes, and alternatives. It will be based on blog Top 10 ABAP Crimes

 

I am very happy that my abstract ( as shown above ) for  community sessions in SAP TECHED Barcelona is accepted. The session ID is DEV222 .  And I will try to give a bit more detail what my session will be all about and why it might be usefull for you.


Quality in software development is very important subject and it becomes even more and more important today with many new products and development tools.  In a controlled development environment it is not very difficult to maintain acceptable standards.But  if we do not follow certain principles while coding in an uncontrolled environment we all tend to mix things up.

In my session I will explain most common development mistakes that are made by ABAP developers with examples and negative results of them, and will also try to emphasize what needs to be done permanently avoid making such mistakes.

Main subjects  in my session will be;

  • Modularization ( Main modularization errors, how to avoid them and what is the right approach)
  • Modifications ( Why we should try to keep them at the minimum, how to decide if a modification is really needed or not )
  • Performance ( Main performance mistakes that we need to avoid all the time, how to code proactively in terms of performance )
  • Change management ( Most common system topology, What might happen if don’t follow change management rules )
  • Success and failure checks and exceptions ( How to use them to improve user experince)
  • Copying programs and functionalities ( What we need to be carefull about while copying programs or code parts,  why we should avoid copying standard programs )
  • Data definiton issues ( Global definitions, random data definition )
  • Comments ( the right approach )
  • Badly formatted source code and too many hard codings
  • Using wrong update mechanisms, not using locks, updating standard tables from custom programs
  • How to avoid all and keep track of changing development approach and standards


Although I will explain it from ABAP perspective many points are generic and might also help other developers. Practical and daily use cases that will be explained in the session might help ABAP developers in reducing development time, facing less bugs, providing better readability by increasing the development quality.

Hope to see you in Barcelona and discuss more about software quality. 

I'm really excited to be hosting a session during this year's TechEd in Barcelona in what will be my first TechEd event.


During the session we'll discuss how the SAP BusinessObjects Cloud solution allows lines of business to deliver analytical capabilities in a single cloud solution, complementing and co-existing with the on premise analytics platforms.

 

The session will focus on an end to end demo showing how a business user would go through the the process of data acquisition, preparation, visualization, planning, and prediction to deliver their own analytics and information solutions. You'll see how the solution allows you to use existing enterprise connections and data from other SAP solutions.


The session is suitable for anyone involved in analytics who wants to understand and see the solution.


The session code is ANP127 and you can access the detail of the session and all of the planned agendas and sessions here. There are some excellent sessions across all of the SAP analytics solutions and those looking at BusinessObjects Cloud and the Digital Boardroom are certain to be of interest.


Looking forward to seeing everyone there and talking all things analytics!


In the meantime please check out my various SAP BusinessObjects Cloud posts on SCN here.

Since  SMP 3.0 , SAP has been adopting an open standards approach to mobile development.As part of this approach, SAP has introduced the  SAPWebIDE Hybrid Application Toolkit aka SAPWebIDE HAT. You'll leave this session understanding the architecture of HAT and also on how to develop hybrid mobile apps with SAPWebIDE HAT.

All HAT capabilities are available in the production SAP Web IDE environment and therefore available for productive use.

I would like to invite you to watch my TechEd lecture below .

You can also find lots of information relating to this topic on our mobile section on SCN.

This session gives an overview of different technologies customers can leverage to run multiple SAP HANA database instances and workloads on the same physical server, thus increasing the utilization of IT resources and lowering TCO.

 

In the first part of the session we introduce SAP HANA virtualization and multi-tenancy concepts. We talk about the grouping of virtualization technologies into hardware partitioning and software virtualization and discuss which technologies are supported with SAP HANA along with their status. Specific requirements for running SAP HANA in a virtual environment are also discussed, as well as what customers should keep in mind when deciding on their virtualization/partitioning approach.

 

The focus of the second part of the session is on native SAP HANA multi-tenant capabilities: Multiple Components, one Database (MCOD), Multiple Components, one System (MCOS), and the most recent Multi-tenant Database Containers (MDC) capability that was introduced with SPS 9. The main focus here is on the built-in SAP HANA MDC capability which enables users to run multiple workloads on the same host server. We describe in detail the MDC concept of having a single system database that contains system-wide landscape information and many tenant databases with separate schemas/workloads that are strictly isolated from each other. The role of the central database in administrating and monitoring, individual tenant-based capabilities, as well as user and administration layers and HA-DR settings are also discussed.

 

We end the session by going over main considerations and trade-offs between virtualization technologies and the native SAP HANA MDC capability. We also discuss what users should keep in mind when deciding on their virtualization or multi-tenancy approach for SAP HANA.

 

 

SAP HANA continued innovation includes work on enabling the latest partitioning/virtualization technologies (such as VMware vSphere 6.0, Huawei FusionSphere 5.1), as well as further enhancing native SAP HANA MDC capability. Here is a list of the planned MDC enhancements in the upcoming SPS12 release:

  • System replication techniques used for tenant database move or copy with near-zero downtime
  • Enhanced monitoring information to increase transparency on status of tenant databases
  • Audit logging for cross-tenant access for increased governance
  • Choice of GUI or command line interface to simplify conversion of single database to multi-tenant database

 

For more details and to learn about many new capabilities coming with the SAP HANA SPS12 release in the areas of virtualization, multi-tenancy, and other topics - make sure to sign up for  the upcoming iFG Webinar Series: Get Ready for SAP HANA SPS12! scheduled to start on May 12th. In case you were not available to attend these sessions, check the SAP HANA iFG Jam group where all session recordings and materials will be stored for later use.

With Support Package Stack 11 for the SAP HANA platform, some major additions to SAP HANA extended application services were delivered. For example on the JavaScript side, we switched to Google V8 and added full support for Node.js. We also added a standard Apache Java runtime (Tomcat and TomEE). We introduced the concept of HANA Deployment Infrastructure for container abstraction of Schema-based database objects.  We also introduced a whole new development environment in the form of the SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA. These are just some of the new features which we detail in this SAP TechEd 2015 lecture of the week.

SAP TechEd 2016 – What kind of content is to be developed?

Technical Know-How and education at its best!

 

The questions to always ask from SAP TechEd content perspective:

  • What is the key technical challenge of a particular session and how to solve it from a technical perspective?
  • Which technical job profiles will be addressed in the session?
  • What are the key takeaways for the desired job profiles
  • No marketing, pure value prop session and/or even sales pitches!
  • Community Sessions should distinguish from the “standard” SAP TechEd Sessions, as they go beyond the strategic tracks and hot topics (listed below). Choose topics that are relevant to and valued by the community and try attract the passionate and large audience because this is a special topic that is not addressed in the “standard” TE track.

Call for Speakers for SAP TechEd Las Vegas Community Sessions


UPDATE: Call for Las Vegas is now CLOSED but the CALL FOR BARCELONA is ON!  Head over to find out more! Proposals due May 6!

 

 

As Tammy Powlas just posted, it's here!  It's already call for speakers time for the premier SAP technical festival of the year, SAP TechEd Las Vegas (September 19-23, 2016).  How are you going to get there?

 

There are many ways to get to Las Vegas, but you may know that a ticket to SAP TechEd at the Venetian|Palazzo Congress Center in Las Vegas is not easy to come by. But if you're reading this, chances are you're an active member of the SAP Community, and if so, here is your chance for a ticket to Vegas.

 

For nearly ten years, in valuing the contributions of YOU, the SAP community, SAP has set aside a number of tickets to various TechEds for bright community contributors to present at the annual conference.  I’m delighted to have been part of a team for the past couple of years that has curated a great selection of well-rated sessions, and delighted to get to do it again this year.  


hardy.jpg

 

What are the community sessions like? They're just like regular sessions and packed with the same important content or even content we may not have heard otherwise -- and we get to hear it from folks like you.


Among some of the highlights from speakers in TechEd Las Vegas 2015 Community Sessions, at least one of the sessions (by Ingo Hilgefort) was standing room only, and three of the speakers (Hisham Mohamed, Nigel James, Gregory Tutt) were part of three of the six DemoJam finalist teams.

 

It was Paul Hardy’s first session as a speaker at TechEd.  Not only did he enjoy TechEd overall and took advantage of the opportunity to share his valuable insights, but he later became member of the month here on SCN, saying of his ABAP-related community session “This was the first time I have ever spoken at SAP TechEd. I have spoken many times before at SAP events in Australia. I have to say that TechEd was wonderful, everything I could have expected and more.

 

Kristina Pereyra was selected to present on Lumira based on her contributions here on SCN, where she continues the momentum sharing hands-on Lumira tutorials.

 

Daniel Graversen got a lot of great feedback on his SAP Integration best practices session and went on to write about it here and develop further webinars.

 

Greg Tutt enjoyed sharing stories about what it was like to take the DemoJam stage in his bathrobe.

 

healthme1[1].pngParticipation in the SAP community including speaking at community sessions, done right, can open doors to horizons well beyond Las Vegas.

 

But it both hasn’t always been easy to find excellent candidates (those we might normally miss?), and hasn’t been easy to choose from the many submissions we receive (the majority of which we have to ultimately turn down).

 

This year, we want to find even greater diversity and unseen talent. We’re again looking for people we may never have heard from at TechEd yet, who have valuable stories we may otherwise have missed for the SAP ecosystem. We’re looking for diversity of all kinds and asking for YOU to help us find it.

 

As in every year, we won’t be able to accept all sessions proposed and we have a special team in place to help select sessions. To make sure our sessions continue to meet the high quality of sessions past, you must:

 

  • Be an active contributor to the SAP community, as evidenced by your participation here on the SAP Community Network
  • NOT be an SAP Employee.  These tickets are reserved for opportunities for the external SAP community
  • Be able to fund your travel and expenses to TechEd. We’ll take care of the coveted ticket
  • Be able to demonstrate to us in your submission why your content deserves to be heard – above all the other submissions
  • Be willing to tell us something we’ve never heard before

 

 

Is this you?  Let your freak flag fly and let us know now!  SUBMIT YOUR SESSION!

 

http://bit.ly/ASUGSAPTechEdSubmit

 

This call for proposals closes on April 22.

 

 

{Note: we’re partnering with ASUG to accept and curate session submissions for SAP TechEd but you do not need to be an ASUG member to submit or present}
