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.

SAP Fiori, cloud edition (SFCE), offers a simple deployment for the SAP Fiori user experience through cloud services running on SAP HANA Cloud Platform. You get a full demo-to-production environment to experience, extend, and run SAP Fiori apps and SAP Fiori launchpad in the cloud while consuming business data securely from your on-premise SAP Business Suite software in a hybrid architecture.

 

At SAP TechEd 2015 I gave a lecture about SFCE when the product was still in a controlled availability program. Since then we had very positive traction in the market. I am happy to share with you that Fiori Cloud Edition is now Generally Available including SAP HANA Cloud Platform, OData provisioning (that you were all asking for…).

 

I would like to invite you to watch my TechEd lecture, while keeping in mind the news I shared above.

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}

Quote from Stephen Johannes, previous speaker:

"You don't need to present on "newest stuff" to get accepted....It is also a great way for you to deepen your own personal understanding of a particular topic. Even though you may think you know a topic very well, it is amazing how building the presentations will force you to pick up every single detail as part of you research. " - Stephen Johannes

Come join us at SAP’s premier technical conference in September.

Last year at Teched Las Vegas and Barcelona I had the pleasure to give the lectures and hands-on sessions about SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio. I gave the update on the release 1.6, have shown different demos as well as the roadmap ahead.

The interest in Design Studio at both events were really overwhelming. The rooms of lecture and hands-on sessions were fully occupied. A huge queue was standing outside to wait for Design Studio hands-on sessions.  I had great and fruitful discussions with customers and partners and it could be clearly seen that they are out of POC and in production now.

If you did not have the chance to attend the lecture at Teched, here is the chance for you to watch the replay:

 

For the next releases we are planning to deliver different new features, like new components, ad-hoc currency conversion, and interoperability scenario with SAP Lumira, local calculations / Data Mash-up and more…

Stay tuned for more updates on SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio. We will be present at various events around the world.

Feel free to attend our lectures, Influence Councils and visit our booth at Sapphire in Orlando.

Could this be you, presenting an ASUG session at SAP TechEd Las Vegas?

In this lecture you can get an overview of existing and planned reporting and decision making components in SAP S/4HANA. This includes virtual data models, embedded analytics, SAP Smart Business cockpits, and the relation to BI interfaces and the SAP Business Warehouse.

Learn about the strategy and tools at SAP that can help support the best use of solutions in this context. Get live experience with Demos from these solutions.

SAP S/4HANA brings real-time operational reporting directly without any redundancies or latencies. In this session you can watch real live demos that will help you to explore why S/4HANA Analytics is the next big thing in real time operations analytics and why data models will be much more simplified.

Watch the lecture replay from Las Vegas:

Happy learning!

Having been at TechED Las Vegas and Barcelona I really must say that the interest into S/4HANA is overwhelming. I had good discussion with customers and partners and it can be clearly seen that knowledge and understanding of S/4HANA is increasing. The focus of the inquiries is increasingly pointing towards adoption. Consequently the booths were well frequented and S/4HANA sessions were often sold out and even overbooked. Therefore it is good that many have been recorded and are available online. Enjoy in case you did not get a chance on site.

 

 

 

 

There were some great other sessions from Stefan Elfner, Wieland Schreiner, Sven Denecken on S/4HANA which together with mine will give you a good overview on S/4HANA

Finding SAP Mentors at SAP TechEd is easy to do - especially when 68 of them were in Las Vegas and 61 in Barcelona, and SAP Mentors contributed over Mentors4.JPG350 hours of content at these two events combined. The limited edition badges for the Catch-a-Mentor and Know-a-Mentor missions made the experience that much more fun! Take a look at all the selfies SAP TechEd attendees have posted already of their encounters with SAP Mentors.

 

Now that I've posted a selfie for my Catch-a-Mentor badge, this blog post is to ensure I get my Know-a-Mentor badge as well! I do have a slight advantage, since my new role is to lead the SAP Mentor Program, and I was fortunate to attend both SAP TechEds in Las Vegas and Barcelona this year. Here's what I learned from just some of the many SAP Mentors I met:

 

Like I said, there were lots of Mentors at TechEd this year, and I'm only listing some of the many I met and spoke with. Honestly, in the process of learning about them, I've also learned much from them, and more about myself. I guess that's the true value of mentorship. Thanks Mentors!

 

You don’t have to be at SAP TechEd to meet a SAP Mentor - join one of the local meetups or SAP Inside Tracks in your area hosted by SAP Mentors and Mentor Alumni to catch up and get to know our SAP Mentors.

For those of you who were not able to participate in the 2015 version of the sitnl and could not attend the SAP TechEd takeaway presentation hosted by Ronald Konijnenburg and myself, or if you just want to re-live the magic, I’ve enclosed our presentation below:

 

http://www.slideshare.net/SvenvanLeukenBscPMP/sap-teched-2015-takeaway


UKISUG.png

I had a good, productive conversation with SAP Mentor Steve Rumsby, who is both SAP Technical Manager at the University of Warwick, SAP Screen Personas expert, and first ever Chair of the newly-formed UX SIG (Special Interest Group) in the UK and Ireland SAP User Group.

 

Steve practises what he preaches: at the University of Warwick, Steve has transformed users' experience by implementing SAP Screen Personas, to provide some radical improvements. One example that impressed me (admittedly as a Personas ignoramus) was this: PO Quick Lookup - YouTube

(There's also a slide deck on this: http://www.slideshare.net/mobile/SteveRumsby/university-of-warwick-personas-coinnovation-project-35656852 ).

Crucially, this is not about sexy colours and background images, but about making life easier, more productive, and more intuitive for the normal SAP GUI user. During his lecture on SAP Screen Personas, which I also attended, Steve said that with normal SAP GUI, some users were refusing to open SAP GUI at all, asking colleagues to do the work for them, whereas with his Personas implementation, users were asking how they could start using the system.

The next steps are to make the experience more UI5 and Fiori-like, but staying within SAP GUI. (Like this: Using SAPUI5 charts in Personas Flavours ).

 

He explained that the SIG was formed because he found himself addressing (often overlapping) UX and UI topics at different existing SIGs. At present, they have 2 face-to-face meetings per year, along with with a number of Webinars. Their most recent face to face was  about design theory - principles of UX, end user requirements, etc - rather than about a specific UI technology.  Steve stressed that this is an important part of their ethos:

Too often, there is a temptation to latch on to an interesting UI technology, and think "What can we do with this?" In fact, a good user experience starts with the question : "What is the user trying to achieve?" "What is preventing him from doing this quickly and efficiently?" Very often the real root cause of the user's problems is not a UI technology problem - it 's a business process problem. However, this only becomes apparent when you examine the process from the end user's prespective.

I was glad to hear Steve say this, because it squares strongly with our official strategy, and also with my own experiences talking to customers.

 

Not surprisingly, we have both watched Sam Yen talking about this (to Simon Kemp) at Teched LV: Scaling User Experience Design in the Enterprise

Here, Sam explains the difference between finding the right problem to solve - ie Design Thinking - which is about observing how the user actually works; versus solving the problem correctly - ie Design DOing - which requires a knowledge of what UI technologies are available.

 

If you are a customer in the UK or Ireland, I would strongly recommend that you consider joining the user group. And if you are already a member, consider what a better understanding of user experience could mean for your users, their productivity, and their job satisfaction.
