The CeBIT conference in Hannover is a well known forum where international software and hardware manufacturers come together. It is also a kind of pulse-check for the IT industry. As per the latest news, the mood at the conference is quite optimistic :-). Good for us.
While I was going through the details on the CeBIT official website http://www.cebit.de/homepage_e , I was impressed by the list of speakers at the conference, all of whom are highly accomplished individuals in their respective spaces. Some of them are – Diane M. Bryant, Vice President and CIO of Intel ; Dr. Werner Vogels, Vice President of Worldwide Architecture and CTO of amazon.com ; Anand Agarawala, founder of Bump Technologies and inventor of the first 3D desktop; Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of Flickr.com and 26 other experts.
The theme this year is “Connected Worlds” with the spotlight on IT solutions for all areas of life and work.
Now coming to what is SAP showcasing at CeBIT this year.
- Business One Version 8.8 (release planned for end of April, 2010) with focus on demonstrating the integration with mobile devices like blackberry & iPhone, cloud based apps and mashups.
- Business ByDesign FP 2.5 (release planned for july 2010) – the integration with iPhone (which was also demonstrated in the Influencer’s summit at Boston last year) along with the capability of accessing the applications like Groupeware, Microsoft Office, and Lotus Sametime through the browser plug-in.
- SAP NetWeaver Business Client 3.0 – Rich Desktop Client specifically for SAP Business All-in-One.
