SAPPHIRE NOW 2010 – Frankfurt

I just got questioned on why I had not posted anything on SAPPHIRE NOW considering I was physically there in Frankfurt? My answer of course was “but I did post 3 blogs” then I realized what they meant – how in the world could I not post into my favorite community SCN directly?

Therefore I thought I would do something different here than I did on my Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 takes of the event. This was one of the first events where I was able to carry my big camera with me so for a good couple of hours I was able to wander around and take photos and practice my hobby of digital photography – albeit I missed part of the final keynote due to this but it was most interesting experience.

I’ve posted all of my photos, well almost all of them in my flickr account but wanted to pick a couple specifically to talk about.

How many people knew that SAP Press has already released their online book reading platform?

Technology and innovation were in particular abundance at the event, here we have Oliver Kohl speaking to one of the Production Managers Chris Keller about the setup and the amazing amount of work that has gone into making the event extremely exceptional.

Here I managed to snag a couple of shots of some folks exploring the Microsoft Surface table as I did last year at SAP TechEd – I strongly believe there are some very interesting enterprise level applications of this type of device.

 Here one of my favorite photos, I walked over to the production center and stood outside watching through the windows during Vishal’s roundtable discussion and managed to snap a shot of him on one of the monitors.

And of course no one will ever forget the “WALL” – in fact some Mentors even invented a game on it.



Now for those brave at heart, click the following photo and then go to “all sizes” – check the left side of the photo. Look closely – do you see it? Could really be one?

      Hi Craig,
      Looking at the blown-up photo, I think I can see the ghost of the old-style SAPphires in the left-hand corner. Is that what you meant?

      Scary isn't it?
