SAP TechEd Las Vegas Live Studio Highlights
Last week, at SAP TechEd Las Vegas, I had the opportunity to work in the TechEd Live Studio, covering interviews and lectures from the @SAPCommNet and @SAPTechEd Twitter channels. The energy was high in the Live Studio and the amount of information shared during these interviews was amazing. Impressively, 39 interviews were packed into 3 days on the show floor at SAP TechEd and it feels impossible to highlight only a few interviews with so much content to choose from, but here’s my attempt at a recap:
Dan Kearnan and Vijay Vijayasankar announced the availability of the SAP BW on HANA Trial Offer, while Thomas Jung, Graham Robinson and Jelena Perfiljeva took us Back to the Future of ABAP Development. From Mobile to MOOCs – Mark Finnern and Markus Schwarz talked about the Flexible Learning Revolution while Dick Hirsch and Sven Denecken gave us an update on how SAP is doing in the Cloud.
HANA stood out as a hot topic at the Live Studio where Thorsten Franz, Harald Reiter and Kiran Musunuru shared tips for Developing SAP HANA Technical Skills, and David Cruickshank, David Korn, Rick Speyer, and Thomas Turchioe Explored Big Data and SAP HANA Geo-spatial Real Time Situation Awareness. And, we have to mention Jon Reed who interviewed Dr. Vishal Sikka (known as the “Godfather” of SAP HANA) about Products and Innovation at SAP.
The Demo Jam winners, William Powell and Nic Doodson, took over the Live Studio stage to talk about their demo, HANADeck, with Denis Browne, while Ian Kimbell interviewed the young developers who connected a Lego NXT Robot with SAP HANA.
And, this is really just the tip of the iceberg. You can explore all the interview replays here, and if you missed any of the online lectures, you can browse through them here. Now, it’s time to get ready for another great event that’s packed with content – SAP TechEd Amsterdam!
