#SAPRUNSSAP #SAPPHIRENOW #SAPCHAT Live – Can’t Wait!

    SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando is only a week away and I can’t wait.

Many of my favorite SAP Runs SAP ambassadors are going to be there — such as Michael Golz, Martin Heisig, Martin Lang and Matthias Wild. If you are attending, make sure you visit the SAP Runs SAP booth. It is your chance to see SAP Runs SAP in action.

I am most excited about the fact that enterprise mobility expert Eric Lai and SAP’s Chief Information Officer Oliver Bussmann will be taking part in a live #SAPCHAT on Wednesday, May 16 at 1:00 p.m. ET in Orlando.

Eric and Oliver will be talking about social media, SAP Runs SAP, bring your own device (BYOD), enterprise mobility and, and, and – anything goes live on Twitter.

To be part of the party, on site or online, use this link or simply watch the #SAPChat tag on Twitter.

If you have never seen a #SAPCHAT in action on Twitter, then make this a date for your diary. You do not need to be in Orlando to take part. I, for one, will be taking part from the comfort of my own home.

 

See you online

ZDNet: One Enterprise CIO’s View of CES

Eric Lai’s latest ZDNet blog shares fascinating insights from the recent Consumer Electronics Shows in Las Vegas, including a not to be missed video from SAP CIO Oliver Bussmann.

“Bussmann, as readers of this blog already know, is no ordinary enterprise CIO. He’s deployed 14,000 iPads and 8,000 iPhones to SAP employees, launched a global Bring Your Own Device program and created a self-service, internal Enterprise App Store with dozens of apps. Bussmann is also pushing ahead on Android device deployments, and is building a more secure alternative to DropBox for employees to use.

In the following video, Bussmann gives his quick take on five technologies and trends he saw on display at CES this year, along with what their impact could be for businesses like SAP’s (my parent company happens to be one of the 70 largest public corporations in the world).”

Goodbye 2011 – Hello 2012 – Oliver Bussmann Powers On at CES and AppNation

On the drive to work this morning I was trying to forget how miserable the weather was in Walldorf and at the same time trying to think of a great opening line for the 2011 review blog. I need not have bothered, my buddy Eric Lai posted a great review for Forbes this morning. It feels like the sun is shining in Walldorf now. Thank you Eric. (more…)

Forbes.com SAP CIO: iCloud and DropBox Not Secure Enough, We’ll Build Our Own

Users love cloud storage services like DropBox and iCloud for their power and ease of use. IT managers hate them for the ginormous potential for data leakage and loss they create. But clamping down on them isn’t so straightforward.

At the SAPPHIRE conference in Madrid last week, SAP CIO Oliver Bussmann gave a talk to fellow CIOs about how SAP is using its subsidiary Sybase’s Afaria MDM software to secure the 11,000 iPads used by its employees.
