Fred works for NL4B and asked me if I'd be interested to hold a keynote at the beginning of the "Developer Dag" for the VNSG (Dutch SAP User Group) about Code Exchange at SAP. I happily accepted, and extend the scope of my keynote to innovation at SAP in general.
Inspired by the excellent Technology Strategy at SAP Part 3 I've explained how the technology strategy is embedded in the efforts around fostering innovation at SAP.
The first part of these efforts is a solid technology strategy that translates SAP's product strategy into technological investment areas. Another part are "enabling" tools like Idea Place and Code Exchange allowing the SAP Ecosystem to better engage in the development process of SAP and to enable collaboration between SAP community members. Finally we also have enabling programs like SAP InnoJam giving the SAP community hands-on experience on SAP's newest technologies.
With this blog I want to share with you the slides that I've presented during my keynote at the VNSG developer day.
