Unified Life-Cycle Management Track at SAP TechEd ’06

It’s not just for kids anymore…

Well, the SAP TechEd organizers really did it this year. While last year’s US and EMEA conferences were in the historical cities of Boston and Vienna respectively, this year they have picked a couple of doozies for cities to host the event. That’s right, really want to party down? The 2006 US and EMEA events are in Las Vegas and Amsterdam!

Although I didn’t help select the event cities (even though I probably would’ve picked the same ones!), I am one of the track organizers for TechEd this year. I am the US track owner for Unified Life-Cycle Management: “Automate application management processes and optimize all facets of an application’s life cycle.” Or, in simpler terms, it’s the track for administrators. Even though Elvis wasn’t available to speak, we still have been able to select very qualified experts to present what you always expect from TechEd…oodles of tips, tricks, features, functions and know-how.

As you might expect at TechEd, the Unified Life-Cycle Management track is quite large and has a lot of sessions. It includes sub-tracks on SAP NetWeaver Operations with topics such as the SAP NetWeaver Administrator, job scheduling, performance and archiving; and Software Lifecycle Management with topics such as landscape planning, SAP Solution Manager, upgrades and the NetWeaver Development Infrastructure. Below is a list of the US sessions in the track, with a link to the overview.

Myself? I’ll be at the Vegas one…meet me at the Hold Em tables… (I’ll be blogging about some of my sessions, too, so keep an eye out…)

      Matt, could you be kind and correct the URLs, esp. for ULM203 ?

      Even with Premium Access (attendee of TechEd 2006), there is no place I can download the article. DO you have the magic wand ?

      Hi Hans,

      Thanks for pointing this out.  The URLs had changed without my knowledge...I have now corrected them.  The entire ULCM track from TechEd '06 can also be found at:

      If you attended SAP TechEd '06 Las Vegas, you should be able to find the presentation by logging in to the educational sessions handout page here:

      Best Regards,
