I am excited to announce the first of what will hopefully be a long series of podcasts dedicated to SAP technologies, with an emphasis on administration and infrastructure. The podcast is called Cover Your Basis, and will only be successful with the contribution of many in the community.
In the first episode, available in both video and audio formats via iTunes or at the Cover Your Basis website, I am joined by Courtney Bjorlin of ASUG News to talk about the great content ASUG News has to offer to anyone interested in SAP, not just ASUG members.
Next, I talk with Jon Reed of JonERP.com, an SAP Mentor and long-time SAP community member to discuss some things Basis Administrators can do to be successful, as well as what to look for at the upcoming SAP TechEd conference.
Lastly, I welcome Chris Kernaghan of Capgemini Consulting. Chris brings many years of Basis experience to the conversation and talks about some of his recent projects, including the combined upgrade and unicode conversion (check out his brilliant blog series on that topic Architecting an SAP Upgrade and Unicode conversion (CUUC Series Part 1)), as well as efforts to utilize the Amazon public cloud. (On a side note, I just found out Chris is a freshly minted New SAP Mentor Cubs Summer 2011 - congratulations, Chris!)
