innojagd season is open!

SAPPHIRE NOW was amazing and the energy levels are high and it’s very obvious that this is a NEW SAP that is moving forward with great new technologies and ideas, so now the question I have for all of you is are you ready to stop hiding the amazing things you are doing?

SAP TechEd and Demo Jam are fast approaching and we will be opening up the call for submissions in a matter of weeks and Demo Jam at SAP TechEd 2009 I will be available to contact and discuss your ideas ahead of time before you submit to optimize your chances with the selection committee. Well this year that availability I’ve taken a step further and I will be physically available in a few locations around the world as well!

The first stops for me as I began my “innojagd” are Palo Alto and Newtown Square. I’ll be in Palo Alto hosting a live session on the 17th of June and again in Newtown Square hosting a live session on the 24th of June (the day before the SAP Inside Track Newtown Square).

Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend these live sessions, you just need to register ahead of time so I can make sure you have a badge waiting for you to get into the building.

We’ll be talking about innovation with SAP, Technology Standard and Open Source, Technology Strategy and of course many of the topics you might have heard about during the SAPPHIRE NOW 2010 event. Then of course the highlight, those wishing to share their own cool ideas and prototypes and projects will be given the opportunity to do so with special guests in attendance to offer tips and suggestions on how their idea might be “described”, “altered” or “enhanced” to have a better chance to get selected for the SAP Demo Jam during the upcoming SAP TechEd 2010 events! 

To register for the event please visit the event page and there you find the registration link, registration is open for each location (the physical ones) as well as to request a virtual session if you can’t make one of the physical events.

      Dear Craig,
      I wonder how exactly can one imagine a channel you get the innovative ideas from. I understand an important channel for you are the set of the presentations you´re asking people about for the TEd and Jam? Is that so? And what are the others? I wonder if you´re in any contact (a user or anything) ot he new Idea Place? For those who didn´t visit the Brand new interaction channel, please check here:
      I am very curious about the details of the process you´re running here.
      Have a nice day, Otto

      Hi Otto,

      At last count this morning I now have about 9 channels were information is flowing into me - innojagd, SAP TechEd Demo Jam, Australia User Group Demo Jam, Hacker Night, egHead Challenge plus 4 internal channels and another 4 internal channels are ramping up.

      Idea Place of course is a very interesting topic and an interesting endeavour however at the moment as I am searching for actually prototype/product level items Idea Place has not taken a very large role - however that could of course change over time.

      If you've visited the registration link for innojagd the physical locations are there but also the ability (which some have already) to request a virtual session.

      Hi Craig,

      will you be virtually linking into the SAUG?

      One of the best ways to think about "innojagd" is more a "pre casting" or "administrative" event, the real showcases for innovation are things such as the Demo Jam event be it at the Australia event or the official one at the SAP TechEd events in the fall.

      innojagd is more interested in the what and why as opposed to the project itself we want to understand what you did and why you did it and how that relates to what our strategy is indicating.
