SAP Inside Track H1 Singapore 2013 – A day of Learning,Sharing, Networking, Fun and Much More!
Exactly 6 months after our first ever inside track in Singapore, I and Marek Kowalkiewicz with the help of all community members organised the second one on yesterday (june 8th), it was wonderful learning, sharing event.
I am happy to share some of the interesting things happened on SITSG H1 through this blog.
We all know that, Currently SAP is focusing on the main innovation areas like mobility, cloud, In memory etc. I was very confused to choose the theme for the event. After lots of trail, finally we decided to take the theme as “Tech By Choice”.
As the theme, the entire event runs with the choice of attendees. From the date, venue till the session titles all selected by the interest of the pre-registered attendees.

Energetic kick start
Thanks to Kurt Bilafer for joining with us and started the event. it was amazing kick off session , He showcased some of the future visions of SAP on APJ region, more on today’s world business trend. Later the attendees also raised interesting questions, he shared use cases on, how the company coming out of its comfort zone and moving along with technology, he also shared his view on human beings behavior changing due to mobile phone usages. We are very lucky to get him on that day, with his busy schedule, he even joined with the fun networking game too 🙂 and encouraged everyone.
This is the wonderful and informative networking game, its very simple. We prepare some of 25 to 30 Questions ( interesting questions with fun) and each question has name of the registered attendee, now all attendees form a group of 5, music will be shuffled on every 5 min. Find the person in the group and ask the question, get the opinion within 5 min, move on to next group. At the end of 30 min, if anyone at least get to know all the members either any one horizontal /vertical line is the winner.
It was amazing at the end of 20 min, one of our attendee own SAP BINGO 🙂
SAP Research Center Tour
The event hosted on SAP Research center singapore. The Office is totally stylish and comfortable work environment. The infrastructure itself automatically creates the passion for research!! Marek took the attendees to all the areas in research center and shown the HANA Server and explained its architecture on live.
Ever New HANA Handson
We are very clear to get something shared in the event, which not shared in any where else before. This has been already circulated to all the speakers, it was amazing , Raj Kumar Salla who is given the handson HANA, shared detail on data provisioning, which is not the typical excel sheet import, This was new for almost everyone. He has gone very deep and covered more clearly.
Unfortunately we didn’t record this session 🙁
Practical Business Analytics
It was another fun and informative session by Sanjay soni. He is very cool given very day to day examples and shown how analytics are really needed not only for the big/small company and also for individual level. We even discussed the role of analytics on crime control.

Counting 5 (Video clipping session)
This is another interactive video clip session, where shared some of the interesting video clips on bigdata, medicine personalisation, Hana Enterprise cloud.
SAP App designer
We got almost 8 developers out of 40 attendees. After listened this session, not only developers, even consultant like me also can add the skill set as mobile app developer, SAP App designer was very cool , just using drag and drop , you can build wonderful mobile app at the short time.
Custom code management
Time being, to stop the thoughts on mobility, cloud, HANA, I stared interesting sharing about custom code management, and spoken on sap coding standards, and tools which helps to analyse the custom codes. It was nice, one of the attendee said the custom code management is the one thing she should shared to the manager. After hearing this I felt so satisfied.
Quiz and Feedback
As usual, we conduct some quiz , I myself not able to believe, how active the participants, even answered very tough questions, which can be answered if we listened very carefully. There are 15 questions have been answered by participants directly without any guess 🙂
We wind up the day event with token of thanks to all.
