Back from my first TechEd – it was a blast!
Community Day really gave me a feeling of belonging (the Business Objects team is new to this family), and I would encourage you all to add this Day to your agenda the next time you attend TechEd.
The Xcelsius Challenge was a success! Just to recap from my Xcelsius Challenge – more details for Las Vegas TechEd before TechEd in Las Vegas, the Xcelsius Challenge involves participants building their own Xcelsius dashboards. We gave away 700 CD copies of Xcelsius Present 2008 within the first 2 days of TechEd, and the toys (Bionicles and Star Wars action figures) disappeared by the 3rd day. The Xcelsius Challenge went so well we’re planning to offer this Challenge again in Berlin.
Thanks to those who stopped by the Business Objects Community and Product Test-Drive area in the Community Clubhouse. It was really nice chatting with you all! One of the event attendees described Xcelsius as “sexy!” (The Xcelsius product and development teams would love to hear that!)
To learn more about Xcelsius visit the Xcelsius product portal on the Business Objects Community (https://boc.sdn.sap.com/xcelsius).
To learn more about using Xcelsius on SAP, you’ve got to check out our SAP Mentor, Ingo Hilgefort’s blogs on SCN.
For those who did stop by and got scanned for our unannounced drawing of an Xbox, please stay tuned…I’ll be announcing the winner shortly.
