Looking Forward to the Mastering SAP Technologies Conference in Sydney

I cannot believe that it is almost time for me to get on a plane for the Mastering SAP Technologies Conference March 22-24 in Sydney, Australia.  The conference will have 54 sessions covering topics such as Solution Manager, UI, Security, Archiving, Portals, Dev tools, to name a few, as well as workshops for Web Dynpro ABAP, BOBJ, Enhancement Packs and BPM.  On Sunday, there will also be a SAP Inside Track event to jumpstart the conference.

I will not just be attending the conference, I will also be giving 2 presentations:

The Evolution of Information Lifecycle Management


Find Out How US Companies are Influencing SAP in User Interface

Another benefit of attending the conference is being able to get together with the SAP Mentors that will also be there; Graham Robinson, Tony de Thomasis, Thomas Jung, Gretchen Lindquist, Ingo Hilgefort and me.

I will also get a chance to meet some Australian Twitter friends such as

Matt Harding (I actually met Matt last year at SAP TechEd Phoenix), Neil Gardiner and Martin English.

There have also been blogs about this event from SAP Inside Track Sydney, Australia 2010 and Pre SAP InsideTrack Australia 2010.

After the conference, I will be heading down to Melbourne to visit The Australia Post and meet with Tony de Thomasis and the AusPost Basis team to discuss all things SAP Basis related.

Now, my trip to Australia isn’t going to be all business :-).  I will also be getting a chance to

visit the Taronga Zoo


do the Sydney Bridge Climb (and hope I survive)


and visit The Great Barrier Reef.


I am very excited about this amazing experience and looking forward to my adventure “Down Under”.

  • I know when I was there last year Paul Hawking (
    Senior Lecturer, Victoria University) talked a ton about the Bridge Walk, but it didn’t fit into our schedule.  You should also be sure to take the ferry around the Harbor for good measure.
    • Thanks Jamie, I do believe a dinner harbour cruise has been planned – that is, if I survive the bridge climb that morning.  🙂


  • Karin – I am sure you will be having a great time, and will attend some excellent sessions too.
    Thanks for shouting out to our friends in OZ who will also keep us posted about this event.
  • I think you will find the Mastering SAP technology event very good indeed, and also of more practical use than most SAP conferences. We are lucky in Australia to have so many SAP events each year. The Mastering SAP Technology event also seems to get better each year.
    Whilst you are at the Barrier Reef I would suggest a visit to Port Douglas. It is a wonderful place. You have to hurry though before they concrete it all over. When I was there last about twenty resorts were under construction.
  • for those following via twitter, the hash tag for the conference is #masteringsap; for the inside track day (this sunday, march 21, just before the conference) its #sapinsidetrackoz
