The highlight of the keynote for me was Rolf Schumann, Chief Technology Officer Head of Platform, SAP NetWeaver, SAP EMEA. Whose presentation “Business at the Speed of Change” was very enlightening and of course it didn’t hurt that he spoke about CN (aka SDN/BPX).
We also heard from Simon Witts, Corporate VP, Enterprise & Partner Group of Microsoft on the partnership between Microsoft and SAP and from SAP Labs Israel’s very own Or Shavit from the Customer Advisory Office demo-ing VC and Enterprise Search (wow! The future looks good!) in his presentation “Enterprise SOA in Action”.
TechTour highlighted BPX this year which included a very informative keynote presentation on GRC by Hila Barr-Hoisman, Director, Enterprise Risk Services- CA, Deloitte Brightman Almagor.
After a good lunch (especially for us picky eaters) we spent the afternoon choosing between sessions in 4 different tracks: Technology, Business, Speed and Change.
I enjoyed most of the sessions I attended and learned from them. My favorite session was of course that of our very own Marilyn Pratt entitled “Business Process Expert Community”.
Marilyn captivated her audience in both Hebrew and English gently guiding them into the world of BPX, and of the site. She highlighted the Community Project which drew interest from the crowd.
The presentations (all in English except Hila Barr-Hoisman’s) and pictures from the event can be seen here next week.
