Whats hot @SAPTeched when it comes to Cloud – my POV

TechEd is around the door – can not await. One question I get regularly these days – what is hot when it comes to cloud. Of course you can navigate to the agenda builder here, and search for cloud… but here are my favorites – my POV

The SAP TechEd 2013 begins in Las Vegas next month, followed by further events in Amsterdam and Bangalore. One of my favorite events if you are interested in technology, but want it tangible. Lot´s of opportunity to engage, hands on, down to the essentials. Very seldom I find a venue where experts , customers and partners meet and discuss there challenges and find new opportunities.

Now, you might know that cloud computing is top of my mind, and SAP TechEd is a good opportunity to get the hype away and drill down. An opportunity to see the proof what works, what needs more focus – and more important, where is the value for all of us.. And as stated, cloud is not (only) about technology- it is about business. See my blog here: Is Cloud about technology? No, it is about business – technology is an enabler.

So what is on at SAP TechEd for cloud, and what is hot – my Point of View of course…

Step one

Here is the cloud specific catalog, all you can eat-  check this link

Step two

What keeps you interested, motivated? here is my TOP 10.

  • You want to get a first glimpse about topics, check the beginner sessions here.
  • You are looking for applications, SaaS? Well, it is a tech event… but some sessions here.
  • You want to see what the platform in the cloud, PaaS, can do for you? Check out here.
  • And you understand that the world will be hybrid – so integration and how cloud solutions work with the rest of the solutions (also see previous blog)? Then see here. More specifics on HANA Cloud Integration? See here.
  • A quick win for IT and reducing TCO? See here.
  • You want to get your SAP Business Suite to leverage innovation with HANA? Then see HANA Enterprise Cloud sessions here.
  • You want to get to the details? Get your hands dirty – the hands on sessions here.
  • And for everyone who likes to plan, while I would argue that cloud and road maps longer than one year are kind of odd… here are the road map sessions.
  • Last but not least – how will you make your team working better together? Check SAP JAM sessions here.
  • Drink our own champagne – see here the SAP runs SAP session – very good insights.

There will be a round table for cloud, details to be defined and will update the blog once I have details. For influencers feel free to schedule one-on-ones with executives. Last but not least – here are my own sessions, looking forward to see you there!
