SAP Architecture Focus blogazine – November 2013
Goooooooooooooooooooood Morning Vietnam Goooooooooooooooooooooood Evening SAP Architects,
as we all know SCN now has a Category for NetWeaver Architecture, a container for everything NetWeaver
We also know that across the SCN, across all of the vertical areas there are people engaging and contributing
a wealth of content which can be very interesting and very useful for SAP Architects.
This blog will become a monthly delivery, of a selection of the previous months most interesting SCN blogs
for SAP Architects.
Yesterday evening I went through 100 pages of SCN’s latest blogs to compile this list, at about 20 blogs per page,
that’s around 2000 blogs, and from that lot I picked out the 36 blogs in the list below.
We are a community and this blog is a container for the last month’s interesting blogs, and with this in mind, if
anybody thinks there’s an interesting blog missing from the list, then feel welcomed to add it in the comments
The last 6 weeks have been a celebration of SAP, there have been two Techeds and all of the blogging that
those two events generate.
We have a wealth of information on upcoming technologies including but not all, Hana, Fiori, Screen Personas,
Cloud, SAP River, to name but a few.
Something which is interesting statistically, from around 2000 blogs I narrowed down to 36 which are strategically
interesting for Architects.
Even of these 36, most of them are vertical technology related !
It still surprises me, that there is a mountain of content being produced and published on SCN every month
about the vertical technologies and how to do this and how to do that, but there is a very small amount of
content being published on how to glue everything together and why, the strategies and thoughts and
arguments which SAP Architects need to think about when making decisions for their companies and their
The message then is this, we need more SAP Architecture Blogs and Documents, we need more SAP Architects,
contributing, writing about the solutions they are designing and implementing and why they made certain
decisions, what the pressures were, from the business, financial, time, etc, how they handle robustness,
future proofing and scalability, this is the kind of content we are missing from SCN.
So here they are, from the beginning of October to the 11th of November, SCN’s most interesting blogs
for SAP Architects, enjoy:
I'm reading this with mild amusement and nostalgia.
When we created the Business Process Expert Community back in 2006 my job was quite focused in proliferating contents by.....wait for it.....Enterprise and Business Architects themed around contents that discussed business process, strategy, architecture, and design.
Perhaps we can think of smart ways of tagging present content to make it more visible to the audience you wish to serve.
as ever you are indeed correct, spot on.
The challenge is precisely as you say, there is content being contributed all the time all over SCN, which is interesting for SAP Architects, and how to get that content visible in the NetWeaver Architecture Category page ?
Apart from a monthly highlight of the latest content interesting for SAP Architects ?
Thank you as ever for everything, best regards,
thanks for mentioning! My blog post series will continue end of the week.
looking forward to it, and especially, the one further down the list on securing access from the Internet, this is the contempory burning question.
WOW! Great blog Andy Silvey ! Looking forward for your monthly (or so) Architecture summary.
thanks, yes, it will be monthly or so, it's been on my mind to do this, and finding a window to research and prepare it took me past the beginning of November, and what to do, wait for December or get on with it 🙂
So, hopefully as close as possible to monthly, the feedback is motivating, it seems there are a few of us who like this content.
This is awesome!! Thanks for initiating this Andy!
it's the content which makes it, October - early November and with two TechEds during the period was a very good month for material interesting to Architects.
Excellent!! the material is awesome!!
glad you like it, the December issue is here.
