It’s not Magic, It’s SAP Best Practice

Matthias Wild presents on innovation and SAP Runs SAP at The Magic Circle theatre in London.

Read his blog “A Magical Journey” about the experience.


SAP Runs SAP: Prepare to be amazed

I really enjoy working with the SAP Runs SAP team, they are a crazy cool bunch of people who excel in helping SAP run SAP.

Each member of the team is an expert in their own specialized area. Many share their knowledge via blogs (click the links below to see for yourself what I am talking about). If you are attending SAPPHIRE NOW or SAP TechED Madrid take the time to visit table DT514 (next to the SAP HANA stand) and meet the entire team in person.

You will be amazed at how much innovation can be shown at one table.


The Most Innovative Meeting of 2012 – SAP Runs SAP Activities

It is pretty quiet here in Walldorf today without my IT buddies. They are all in Madrid preparing for SAPPHIRE NOW and TechED Madrid.

BizBash magazine recently described SAPPHIRE Now from Madrid as the “Most Innovative Meeting of 2012” – take a look at this video to see why.


Wild about SAP Runs SAP at SAPPHIRE Now Orlando

Matthias Wild shares his account of his first ever SAPPHIRE NOW in this post.

SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando is running and a team of architects and experts from SAP Global IT is in the middle of the show to tell the SAP runs SAP story. For me personally it is my first SAPPHIRE NOW and I am honestly overwhelmed in many ways. First of course just by the show floor and the pure energy of this event. But second – and much more important – by the great dialogues and discussions I had with SAP customers and partners on the first day.

My (video) favorite topics these days are BW on SAP HANA, the move to scale-out SAP HANA infrastructure to achieve high-availability and sneak previews for SAP ZEN. We have David Poisson at the booth to show all kind of Analytics Apps and the brand new SAP Visual Intelligence (some videos in this blog from Timo Elliott). Holger Faber is here with the fabulous integration story for BW Integrated Planning and BPC 10 version for NetWeaver.


The Enterprise Architect Bernhard Wallner (video) can share the vision and our next steps for ECC on SAP HANA. Dirk Pluschke can show you live business scenarios on SAP HANA side-by-side in ECC, in BW, or with direct connection to SAP BusinessObjects platform 4.03. Joseph Houben (video) is available to give insights on the mobile Apps.

These are real stories to tell, these are the projects and products the SAP Global IT department deploys and runs at SAP – and we are at SAPPHIRE NOW to share our experience with you.


    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.
