I am pleased to introduce ASUG SAP TechEd Las Vegas speaker Moses Nicholson. His session is ITM304 SAP ERP on SAP HANA Migration – Step-by-Step Instructions, Approach, and Lessons Learned
Please meet Moses:
Q: Tell us about yourself:
A: I graduated as Mechanical engineer and started my career as design engineer, designing power steering for cars. Using design software like AutoCAD, Unigraphics, developed an interest in me towards software development. That was the time when Sun Java was born. I took a deep dive into it and landed up working as a Java programmer. Java spread like smoke in the warehouse, and caught SAP ‘s attention and SAP embraced JAVA in it’s NetWeaver Suite. Since I already had Java experience, the company I was working sent me for ABAP training and that’s the beginning of my SAP career 15 years ago. Since then I have done 8 full cycle implementation for fortune 500 companies across the globe, worked as developer, basis admin and an architect and manager. I have worked for big consulting companies including SAP in past. Currently working as manager in Deloitte. I have also been a speaker in ASUG/SAPPHIRE conference. My current focus area is SAP HANA.
Q: What are some of your hobbies?
A: Fishing. Caught a fish in my first attempt, since then hooked up to it
Biking. Have been biking for past 4 years. Take part in the yearly MS biking ride and have done 75 mile rides
Music : I am an acoustic guitar player. Have been playing since high school.
Q: Please tell us about your ASUG TechEd Session:
A: Since the time HANA had taken the market 2 years ago, it has spread like a wild fire. The benefits of HANA are felt across many companies and as a result there is a lot of interest especially implementing Suite of HANA. SoH (Suite on HANA) as how it is called, has infiltrated into the market space and there are lots of questions around adapting this environment especially ERP on HANA.
It takes hours and days of reading and real time experience to know all the intricacies of deploying ERP on HANA, especially when it comes to migration, it is even more detailed.
Working in the HANA space from the time it came to market and already one complete ERP on HANA migration under my belt, I have spent days working on capturing all the details about this ERP on HANA migration including lessons learnt, best practices, tips and tricks, do’s and don’t.
Through this session, I am eagerly waiting to share all these valuable information to the SAP community , which usually not available by merely reading SAP guides. This session brings all the information that an SAP Basis administrator, SAP architect, SAP manager, project manager, ERP customers needs to know about ERP on HANA, including the approach and steps for migration ERP on HANA from legacy database.
I strongly believe that the audiences would walk out of this session, filled with tons of information regarding ERP on HANA and also with answers to their many unanswered questions regarding the ERP HANA.
I thank Moses for participating in the meet the speaker series.
