I know everything I need to do my job – and do it well.
One of the upcoming Inside Track is in Newtown Square has an amazing line up see this blog , I stole the information from it! Greg Myers, Derek Loranca, Marilyn Pratt, Tammy Powlas, and Peter McNulty are just some of the people (mentors) that will be there! Rub elbows with them. One of the best reasons for an Inside Track is to meet people. You may even find that a company near you is thinking about SAP. Or someone has done what you are trying to figure out. There are so many reasons to go! See the complete lists of SAP Inside Track plus community events – here.
Now – I promised the people at the Chicago Inside Track that I would contact the speakers and try to get their presentations on line in case you missed one. Or couldn’t come and missed all their presentation. So stop take a look at the WIKI and click on the links. (I’ll also send out another blog dedicated to the SAP Inside track. But it fit here too.)
You will find the following sessions with links to their presentations:
- Table Partitioning- What and how?
- Moving from old to new technology
- Comprehensive Guide to Data Migration
- Understanding SAP Business Workflow and how it fits in with SAP’s BPM Strategy
- Faster and Cheaper Information Governance. Seriously.
- Dirty Upgrade + Unicode Conversion + Dual Stack Split – What,Why and How
- abap2xlsx – Generate your professional Excel spreadsheet from ABAP
- Enterpirse Information Management and how it relates to business processing
h2. SAP Teched –
THE EVENT to go to for the Techie, non-techie, and anyone who wants to learn about SAP. All levels are welcome. And there are presentations for all levels – beginner, intermediate and advanced. Find a lot of information here .
Go to Las Vegas! Then I get to meet some of you. Ok – anywhere you go it will be a great event.
You learn overviews, have hands-on teaching, meet (network with people). ASUG presentations in general show things you can do – and how they did something. SAP presentations again in general will show you future technology. Or if you are on the right release they will show you what you can do. You get to think about where to apply it.
Learning, fun, vegas, and new friends. What’s not to like about SAP TechEd? I’ll probably write a blog dedicated to that as well. Blogging is fun for me.
h3. So to Wrap it up
I am ranting for those of you that don’t see a need to learn. For those of you that feel comfortable doing what they do, and who get an excellent review without learning / using anything new. I am ranting and hoping to pursuade you to take a look at something new. Use it somewhere. Then try to keep using it.
I’m ranting at myself. Some days it just doesn’t seem worth it. Why take the time? I wait for the next day for inspiration. Just a smile from a business user is usually enough to let me know that “new” things are good to know.
