EXAMPLE Abstract #1

Primary Goals:

1.      Receive an overview of all reporting tools available in SAP NetWeaver

2.      Learn how to select the appropriate business intelligence tools for an organization

3.      Explore options for early adaption of SAP BusinessObjects tools


Whether attendees are new to the SAP NetWeaver™ Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) component or are updating their current system, this session helps attendees take advantage of the latest reporting, analysis, and dashboard functionalities of SAP NetWeaver BW. Gain an understanding of the capabilities and requirements of new or updated reporting and analytic tools in SAP NetWeaver BW, including analysis process designer (APD), the SAP NetWeaver Visual Composer (VC) tool, web application designer (WAD), report designer (RD), Web publishing Java server pages (JSP), and BEx query designer. This session explores the benefits and trade-offs of these existing tools and shows how they can be used independently or collectively. Also, attendees will view a demo of SAP NetWeaver Visual Composer and learn about the new features of the many SAP BusinessObjects tools. Attendees may take home a decision matrix for deciding which tools to use and when to use them.

EXAMPLE Abstract #2

Next Generation: ABAP Performance and Trace Analysis

Become an expert in using the new enhanced features of ABAP Trace and Runtime Analysis tools. Learn when you should use which of the many new tools and how to handle them. Highlights of this session include: customizing the different settings for your special requirements, introduction to the different tools, navigation between the different tools, limiting the Trace Output, restricting the analysis to software layers, personalizing the most efficient views, finding memory leaks, detecting runtime squanderers, mapping of detailed program flows, and much more useful information.


After last year’s TechED, I received a few e-mails stating how much people enjoyed the ASUG sessions at TechEd.  The real-life lessons learned are invaluable.

Speaking for myself, I attended my first TechED a few years ago, where I learned about Federating a Portal, problems getting Solution Manager installed, and real-time data acquisition in BW — all from ASUG sessions.  You have a story to tell: share your story today!
