In less than 4 weeks we would be heading into the Bangalore edition of SAP TechEd 2011. Here is the invitation from Vishal Sikka to maybe the largest crowd gathering ever seen by TechEd http://youtu.be/UCzejcWMts0. Now coming back to the topic, here I have listed out some of the must attend sessions going to happen in TechEd Bangalore related to Master Data Management. This list includes sessions related to Enterprise MDM, Embedded MDM, Information Steward and HANA. Also listed are some sessions related to Mobility and Custom Development which may be of help for organizations trying to build custom solutions to address their requirements.

Vishal mentioned at Sapphire ’11 at Orlando and again at TechEd ’11 at Las Vegas that the next prominent area for HANA’s usage will be Master Data Management applications which work on large amounts of data and usually are accompanied with performance intensive operations. So people considering MDM sessions should also attend the HANA sessions. Some of the HANA sessions I found would be complimenting the MDM sessions are also listed below. I have also thrown in some mobility related sessions since either today or tomorrow, organizations have to embrace mobile UI’s and its good to have knowledge about the same.
