    Hi Andrew. Sounds interesting, but I did not get the format of these sessions – are they 1:1 or many:many at the same time? are they open or by booking (by sending you e-mail) only? are they only for SAP customers or for all TechEd participants?

    Thanks,
    -Vitaliy

      Hi Vitaly,

      Thanks for the question. 

      1. 1:1 with the exception where you need other RIG colleagues from other topic areas to join your discussion.  The idea is to have a close dialogue with you instead of lecturing (many:many / 1:many) as with other sessions.  We want to assist with issues you have regarding architecture etc across subject areas. If you need additional topic then we will organize the appropriate resource to collaborate.  Of course this is subject to availability but we have great coverage over the three days.

      2. Customers v Partners v Others – We are happy to talk to anyone over these sessions so feel free.  We aim to have a good representation across each type.  At this stage it is on a first come first served basis. 

      3. Booking v Walk-up – At this stage we recommend booking a spot via emailing myself.  We still encourage walk-up visits as to improve relationships however we need visibility to assist with planning.  Booking guarantees a spot and appropriate attention.  If you are to walk-up and we are at capactiy we will organize another time slot if available.  If we are not utilized fully via bookings we can handle additional adhoc engagements.  Booking helps us with planning. etc.

      I hope that answers some of you questions.  Please email if interested and indicate required topic coverage.  I.e BI/BO or PI/SOA etc etc.

    They say there is no stupid questions.  I answered my question, but here it is in case anyone else is wondering.

    RIG stands for Regional Implementation Group.  

    I found this – easily – by reading the teched bios.   But since I was wondering, and didn’t want to look “stupid”.  Maybe I can help someone else out.

    See you!
