In this episode, I’m at SAP TechEd 2009 and jointed by SAP’s Thomas Jung and Colgate-Palmolive’s Ed Herrmann. Both, more importantly, are the the hosts of Enterprise Geeks. While this isn’t strictly an RIA themed episode, our guests Thomas Jung and Ed Hermann hit on many of the favored topics for RIA Weekly, including enterprise applications and HTML 5. We get into some HTML 5 talk as well. We discuss:

  • The Enterprise Geek show – topics they’ve sussed out in the SAP, enterprise, and tech world and the emerging role the podcast plays in the SAP community.
  • What they think of Google Wave: business uses for Wave and some theoretic thinking on what you’d have to do to start using it at a “normal” enterprise like, say, Colgate-Palmolive.
  • What’s up with HTML 5? Does the tag make these two excited about dancing charts in HTML?

Disclosure: SAP is a client and paid T&E to TechEd.

    Thanks for the great podcast.

    There is a lot of interesting information on Google Wave integration with SAP at the wiki
    and we also had a very interesting expert network session at #sapteched09

    There are two main scenarios I am focusing on when looking at the potential of Google Wave:
    1. Collaboration on a topic for a distributed team
    2. Supporting processes where one or more process steps requires ad-hoc collaboration

    For scenario 1. good waves of this type end-up with a wiki like top blip/post that is continously being improved and lots of parallell discusions on various subtopics.

    For scenario 2 you need to write some gadgets/robots to support the process. One example is a resource request for consulting companies in which you have one wavelet with the customer and the Key Account Manager, and one internal which uses the HR backend system to identify potential candidates and brings them to the wave in order to check if they’re the right for the request.
