the next TechED event, in Bangalore this time, is about to start and I would like to draw your attention to the hands-on sessions about the Enterprise Portal portfolio. I have been working on the preparation of both sessions, so I would like to share with you some insights into the session contents and hopefully, make you curious to go and get your hands on the systems yourself.
The first session is the POP263 – Experience SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.4 in Action. The idea of this session is to enable every participant to get a broad understanding of what SAP NetWeaver Portal is about, what the benefits are and how easy it is to handle. As our experience at the last TechEDs showed that the audience in these hands-on sessions in generally quite heterogeneous, ranging from highly experienced portal experts who are looking for the newest and greatest stuff to complete newbies who want to get a first overview of the SAP portal offering, we decided to use a modular approach for our hands-on session. So that every one will be able to make the most of the 90 minutes hands-on. The session starts with the portal end user experience, showcasing our new demo framework Ozone that shows that the SAP NetWeaver Portal Framework is highly flexible and can be customized to much different user experience than what most people know as the portal standard. Check out this YouTube video to get a first impression of this portal look and feel:
After this end user section which we recommend all users to do, we have different modules to choose from – depending on your focus, e.g. a quick walk through Mobile Portal configuration, a general portal content administration exercise including the creation of RSS feeds iViews and a more detailed exercise about SAP Portal Site Management by OpenText. Ohad Levy, Yogesh Purantharan and Sridevi S will be there to answer your questions.
While POP263 will teach you how to configure your SAP NetWeaver Portal for mobile access, the focus of session POP264 – Experience the Mobile Portal in Action is on how to create content for your mobile portal, e.g. adding native mobile iViews, the Mobile Universal Work List, or mobile Portal Content Management for document access to your mobile Launcher. In the second part, you will learn more about Mobile Homepage, a standardized single point of access for mobile applications and content. In this part, you will configure Enterprise Feeds and native mobile apps. Finally, you will have the opportunity to learn how to customize the look and feel of your mobile portal. Itay Sagiv and Ohad Levy will guide you through this exercise and give you lots of additional information around Mobile Portal.
So, if you are at TechED Bangalore, don’t miss it!
