Community Day: Redmonk track session WordPress meets SAP 

Redmonk Logo

I had lunch this week with  James Governor where we were what could be loosly described as planning the Redmonk Track at Community Day.

James pinged me a little while ago and asked if I would like to be involved in the planned Redmonk Track at Community Day. We had made a connection of sorts via our blogs and so I after thinking it over I came back to James with a proposal for ‘WordPress meets SAP‘.

James thought this was a great idea and so I started to flesh the idea out.

I came up with 4 ways that WordPress and SAP could play together nicely:

  1. Run an instance of WordPress on MaxDB instead of MySQL.
  2. Run php and therefore WordPress on the Netweaver stack via the php-java bridge.
  3. Run a WordPress install with content from SAP via a RFC call.
  4. Run a WordPress install with content from SAP via a Web Service call.

You could even do all of the above.

I plan the session to be an exploration of these topics. Although I will do some of the talking, it will be much more fun if you bring your laptop along and we can create some great stuff together.

I note that Gregor WolfAnton Wenzelhuemer and Ed Herrmann are planning to come along so join the fun at the Munich Redmonk Track at Community Day.

      I'm not 100% on this Nigel but why run WP on MaxDB when SAP already has a mySQL global license? (I believe - it certainly has a monster investment there)

      The point being is that if we can run it on MaxDB then it takes the excuse away that we have to have this mysql server somewhere. Not just for SAP but for other that might run with netweaver architecture that may well include MaxDB but not MySQL.
