This is a quote from a past SAP TechEd attendee:

“There’s always a great deal to learn at the conference. But the key reason [Community:to attend SAP TechEd] each year is to focus on areas within BI, and to learn and understand the latest choices and direction that SAP is moving towards. We also often have the opportunity to meet with SAP executives to help guide future product direction” SOURCE

Derek Loranca came up with this idea to feature the SAP TechEd BI platform agnostic sessions for SAP TechEd Las Vegas – meaning those that do not rely on a BW/SAP ERP backend.  I didn’t realize myself that there were so many until we started looking at the list, which we reviewed together and is listed below.

Platform developers, architects, and business users can take advantage of road map sessions to learn about the strategy, planning, execution, and collaboration available with solutions including:

SAP Roadmap – mostly Platform Agnostic:
Road Maps – SAP Lumira Suite
Road Maps – SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4
Road Maps – SAP BusinessObjects BI Suite Mobile Solutions
Road Maps – SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence and SAP HANA

With SAP TechEd, as SAP’s premiere technical education conference, and experience hands-on workshops developed for SAP’s platform agnostic customers. 

SAP Hands-on Sessions (platform agnostic):
Customizing SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence for Your Business (BI admin)
Take Full Advantage of SAP HANA Features and Performance with SAP BusinessObjects BI Solutions
