Hello SAP World!! 🙂

                             It has been quite some time for me in SAP BW/BI area. I work for an Automotive dealer. It is one of the biggest organization in Gulf. We have 65 various departments in our organization. IT dept is one of them. SAP BW has been implemented in Service dept alone.

                            We have something like, everyone has to give “Seminar” on our own topic on a rolling basis. We have various sub groups in our IT dept itself. One one fine day, my turn came 😯 . It was in Oct 2012. Initially, I was thinking just to take some general topic and finish this headache task. In the course of my dilemma, I realized to give Seminar on my own subject. My intention was to make everybody understand “What our BW Team does for this organization? “ ℹ

I was thinking “Day & Night” about the effective delivery of my seminar.

                           I have started making my PPT with our company building picture and I have written “Enterprise Business Warehouse” over our building. The reason behind this, I wanted to show them BW can be implemented across the Organization which can show reports of all modules like SD, MM, HR, PP etc., I covered all major areas in terms of technical aspects by giving instances about our other depts. It was like marketing SAP product to the other depts.

                        

                            Finally the big day had come. I was fully prepared previous night, tried some mock drills about on “How to Start the seminar” etc., My only objective was to deliver “What all BW Can do for an Organization?” in an effective manner. I reached the auditorium first and I was standing on the stage with my hands shivering and feeling nervous inside. 😥 All the invitees have come and occupied their seats.

                          

                            I have started my presentation with my “Company Building”. The people were surprised 😯 to see our company on a big screen and started paying attention to me. After passing some 15 Mins, I was thirsty like anything as I was giving presentation with a louder voice. I was in huge problem, but wanted to finish the seminar as per my expectations. Otherwise, all my dreams would go to drain. Then I picked up again and continued through my seminar and I forgot my thirsty problem. I finished my seminar before 15 mins of my scheduled 1 hour. I got couple of questions from the audience and I answered them confidently. I got huge response from all the invitees and they appreciated me.

                           Some of the best compliments were “Today, I came to know What is meant by SAP BW” 🙂 , “There is so much in BW” 🙂 , “You guys(BW Team) doing great job 🙂 ” etc.,

                           Finally, i say one thing. “If you can dream, you can achieve it” 😆 😆 🙂

Thanks for your patience to read my blog.

        Even the BW Team in SCN is also doing an excellent job. It doesn’t take a while for thread owner to note that they already got so many suggesitons and need time in analyzing on those fronts.

        Seems BW Team is also monitoring the SCN loads in BW space.

        Thanks

          Well said kamal…We all always walk an extra mile to solve the issues and make sure that thread gets closed.

          Sometimes i also push the thread owners to close the thread like a good citizen as they forgot to mark the replies helpful..correct or assumed answer.

            Absolutely Anshu . I have recently started participating actively here. Sometimes i really felt how can they respond at this time , when are they sleeping , how are they carrying out their other D2D tasks whether related to Personal and Professional Life.

            Lot to learn from this team .

            Thanks

              I feel what you love to do you find time to do.Basically we all are addicted to SCN.

              But now a days i see just for the sake of points people are misusing the space..

              You take for eg:coffee corner..Wiki ..content of quality is decreasing these days..

            Yes its really worth pointing because team here is more curious in resolving issues rather than thread owner. Very tough competition in BW space these days. I have recently started and Proud to be associated with this community.

              All this raise in competition is due to Gamification and Colorful SCN. Earlier, there was not such a huge competition. I have been active on SDN/SCN since 2011. I too feel really proud to be part of this wonderful platform. We are curious than thread owners. That’s true..but the sad part is, some of them doesn’t respond properly.

                Yes i agree even i am active since 2011 and we had real tough time earning points those days..its all hard earned points ..No likes were there first of all..Questions were less..

                Worst part is when you put your heart and soul to answer the question and once the issue get resolved..people forgot to close the thread. 🙁

                  Well said Suman, Anshu and Kamal

                  Also I saw so many (Not all) people post the questions and once the issue get resolved then they will ignore (Ignore is better word than forget) to close the thread, If they  got another issue they will create another post and do same. They are here only for raising questions ,they will not share there views in other threads.

                  Few people raise the posts and if they find any solution from any other source (Outside SCN community) then they will put one comment like issue get resolved thanks, that’s it they will not share the actual solution 🙁 .

    Suman

    Kudos .

    I could relate to the nervousness 🙂 … I gave a 20 min seminar during my initial days of corporate. I felt exactly the same … i was speaking loud just to hide my nervousness and stage fear.

    Keep posting the excellent and inspiring work so that people can get inspired,

    I know you will do as well 🙂

    cheers
