The backchannel to SAP SAPPHIRE 2008 Berlin

Some of us didn’t make it to SAP SAPPHIRE in Berlin this year, but it is still possible to attend through the backchannel.

The guys in Orlando already did a great job keeping us posted, and hopefully the Berlin crew will be just as good keeping us up to date.

The keynotes and round tables can all be watched live online here.

Press Conference Monday, May 19, 2008 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm CET Henning Kagermann and Léo Apotheker.

General Session Tuesday, May 20, 2008 09:00 am – 10:15 am CET Léo Apotheker.

SAP also has a newsroom, with news from SAPPHIRE 2008.

Another way to follow the events is to go to Eventtrack.
Here you can see the collective stream of information from the event. All chats, links, videos and pictures tagged SAPPHIRE08 will show up here.

I will keep this space updated with blogs, pictures and videos as they happen as well.

  • If someone wants to know something about some session at the sapphire in Berlin, then they should send one of the people attending a tweet. Although you might not be in Berlin, you can still take an “active” role in the event.


  • Nice to see your blog here with all these great hints of how to follow the action.  I’m virtually engaged with this event and loving the content flowing from there and elsewhere. Thanks for this great summary of people and things to follow.  I’m your fan on twitter since you and @oliver took the hike to Walldorf to meet all of us for the community informal get together.
