“Moin, moin” – that’s what you hear all the time in Hamburg when you hear people talking to each other.
In German the word “Moin” is used in the day-to-day slang and stands for “Guten Morgen” which means “good morning” and is normally used specifically in the morning wishing someone a good morning :-).
In Hamburg (and in the regions around) you say “Moin, moin” all the time independently whether it’s morning, afternoon or evening.
In my position in the Product Management of SAP HANA Cloud Platform (SAP HCP) I kind of have a similar feeling when I hear the words “Neo”, “SAP NetWeaver Cloud” or “SAP HANA Cloud Platform”. People seem to understand something different when they hear these words.
After a very interesting event in 2012, where I’ve talked at the SAP Inside Track in Hamburg about SAP NetWeaverCloud and SAPUI5 I decided to provide the participants with an updated talk around what we now call SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
At the beginning I’ve explained the platform itself and also covered some questions I’ve heard from Renald Wittwer before the event. Those were mainly related to the renaming of the platform and the differences between SAP’s cloud offerings. I think the best assets to use to explain that are the blogs from Aiaz Kazi (Evolution of the SAP HANA Cloud Platform) and Bjoern Goerke (SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud, SAP HANA Cloud Platform, SAP NetWeaver Cloud, “NEO”, … Confused?).
The focus of my remote presentation were the ESPM scenario tutorials which can bring you “from zero to hero” in a very short amount of time. Covering a scenario and not a specific technology the tutorials help to explain how the different technologies work together.
During the whole presentation I’ve tried to make the participants aware of all the great assets they can use to
- get up-to-speed quickly with SAP HANA Cloud Platform
- understand why to use SAP HANA Cloud Platform
- stay up-to-date with what is going on with this great product
Here just a few of those assets:
- Why to use SAP HANA Cloud Platform?
- The SAP HCP Podcast
- The ESPM Scenario Tutorials
- The DevTalks series
- SAP on Github
Finally I’d like to personally thank Renald Wittwer and Peter Langner for setting up this event in Hamburg again, attracting interesting speakers and participants. Looking forward to another SITHH next year.
PS: I really liked the way Peter and Renald tackled an issue around the venue at the beginning of the event. Although they were able to access the venue just 1 hour after the official start of the event the event started already in front of the venue on the street. Well done and awesome participants and speakers who adapted to the situation quickly and made the best out of it.
