Top 5 Things to Learn at SAP TechEd 2011 about SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (PI)

In May 2011, SAP NetWeaver PI 7.3 was made generally available after a successful ramp-up earlier this year. SAP TechEd 2011 is a good time to learn about ramp-up experience, new and enhanced features, and our plans going forward – to shape your plans and gain firsthand experience. We have compiled a comprehensive program covering SAP’s integration technology with 12 hours of hands-on sessions and more than 10 hours of lectures (all being offered at least twice in Las Vegas). You can find the full agenda and schedule on the SAP TechEd websites for Las Vegas, Madrid, and Bangalore.

It’s hard to pick the best sessions as this depends on your role and experience with SAP NetWeaver PI (unless you decide to simply attend all). Still, here’s a list of the top 5 things to learn at SAP TechEd 2011 with respective sessions:


1. Gain firsthand experience with the latest release (our hands-on sessions – you’ll get your own Java-only PI instance running in the TechEd cloud!)

  • SAP NetWeaver PI – Integration Flows Deep Dive (PMC164)
  • SAP Netweaver PI – AEX (Improvements & New Features) (PMC266)
  • Build system centric processes using the combined BPM/PI offering (PMC165)

  • Near Zero Downtime Maintenance for SAP NetWeaver PI (ALM220)

3. Prepare your upgrade to SAP NetWeaver PI 7.3

  • SAP NetWeaver PI 7.3: Overview and Feedback from Ramp-up (PMC203)
  • Moving productive landscapes to PI 7.3 single-stack (PMC300)

 4. Get up to date on our road to an integrated stack (and other enhancements)

  • Deep Dive into what is New in SAP NetWeaver PI (PMC201)

    • Hi Daniel,

      You'll get hands-on experience at TechEd with the very latest enhancements for PI - and there's actually a lot compared to last year's hands-on sessions on 7.3.


  • Hi Dirk,

    Thanks for compiling and posting the list of PI sessions at TechEd.  I'm particularly interested in getting into more detail around the integration of PI, BPM and BPMN and I'm glad to see these areas will be covered.

    See you (soon) in Vegas.
