A Gathering of the Tribe: SAP Admin 2006 in Las Vegas

You’ve all been at meetings where someone asks “Hey! If you’re here, who’s home minding the store?” Well, last week, many of the people who normally “mind the store” were at the SAP Admin 2006 conference. Turnout was great and was significantly international, with attendees from India, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe, and all over the Americas making the trip to Las Vegas. I was happy to be there with my colleague Brian Bernard to represent SDN at the conference. SAP Admin 2006

This is the second year for SAP Admin 2006, which is put on by Wellesley Information Systems, the publisher of SAP Insider Magazine, and the conference drew top systems pros from all over the world. SDN was there this year too, showing off its new and growing SAP NetWeaver Platform and Operations area dedicated to SAP systems professionals. We got to meet with many of you who are already contributing to these pages and to the growing systems community on SDN.

PiyushWe saw Piyush Kumar there all the way from Bangalore, Boris Bialek down from Toronto, and Matt Kangas over from LA, all solid contributors on systems topics at SDN and TechEd. Also there were frequent speakers and collaborators from Cap Gemini, Deloitte, SAP Active Global Support, the SAP NetWeaver Regional Implementation Groups, and SAP NetWeaver Product Management. It was truly a gathering of the tribe. WIS Publications puts on a great conference too with carefully chosen topics and presenters who are put through several careful editing and coaching passes before they’re green-lighted to present. The end result is an excellent conference with solid, spot-on relevant content.

SDN was there, as I said, to promote the SAP NetWeaver Platform and Operations area now open and growing on SDN. SAP NetWeaver Platform and Ops consists of the main page (linked to above), the SAP NetWeaver Administration page, the Monitoring and Troubleshooting page, and a growing number of blog series and forums devoted to critical topics in SAP NetWeaver Operations. If you haven’t visited these pages yet, well, then now’d be a good time to start!

Double PointsAlso, consider writing an article or blog for the area – during the month of June, articles and blogs accepted for publication in the Platform and Ops area will receive double points! Get blogging or click “Submit Content” in the SDN title bar above to get started.
