SAP NetWeaver Portal News for May 2012

Welcome to the Portal news blog for the month of May 2012. In this edition you can learn about:

  • SCN news concerning new subspaces in the Portal area
  • What is SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal?
  • Information on Portal Mobile Enablement
  • Some Impressions From SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG 2012

SCN News

Some SCN subspaces for SAP NetWeaver Portal were newly created or renamed. The new subspaces represent the “big” areas of our product portfolio like Collaboration and Social, Knowledge and Content Management, Portal Administration and Development etc. You can use the new subspaces to create blogs or to discuss your issues in the forums.

For more information on these changes, see this blog New Subspaces created on SCN for SAP NetWeaver Portal written by me.

I also recommend reading the blog Stick this in your pipe and read it! by Simon Kemp on how to create a Yahoo Pipe that pulls together all the RSS feeds from the main SAP NetWeaver Portal space and all subspaces. Thanks to Simon for this contribution!

What is SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal?

Note that the SAP On-Demand Portal project name for a cloud-based portal solution was renamed into SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal.

You want to have a live experience of SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal? Just click on this link: and you can find information about SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal, overview video, 30 second videos demonstrating selected capabilities and our approach to authoring sites for multiple devices.

Read also the blog SAP NetWeaver Cloud Portal Experience Site is Live by Vitaly Vainer. And do not forget to check out the updated version of the Cloud Portal overview presentation:

More Information on Portal Mobile Enablement

The mobile enablement of SAP NetWeaver Portal is an extension of the existing portal offering based on SAP NetWeaver 7.3.
We have created more information on SCN on the new  Portal mobile enablement features. In this SCN document you find an overview presentation, screenshots, blogs, links to documentation and SAP Notes.

And for those who could not make it for SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG this year: Aviad Rivling shares with you some of the demos and highlights we showed two weeks ago at the SAPPHIRE NOW conference in his blog SAP NetWeaver Portal On Device – SAPPHIRE-NOW Recap.

Some Impressions From SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG 2012

Two weeks ago some of our team members went to SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG:

  • To give people an understanding of the new SAP NetWeaver 7.3 Portal Portfolio
  • To deliver 13 ASUG sessions successfully,
  • to be present at different pods/pavilions (User Experience, Mobile, Healthcare, Cloud) and showcase the different product demos
  • to meet SAP mentors, customers and partners

Here are some impressions from these 3 exiting days in Orlando:
