SPK12485 SCM Applications on Cloud & HANA
I mentioned in my blog earlier TechEd Bangalore 2013 was my 7th time as attendee but first time as a speaker.
As SAP Mentor I had the opportunity to present in Networking Sessions and I submitted topic named “HANA and Cloud based Applications in SCM Area”. This year I did my exploration on applications in SCM area that I summarised in this one slide and wanted to share with attendees. There were about 8-10 folks for my Friday 13th Dec noon session at TechEd Banaglore (much better than 2 people on Thursday evening).
I walked through the slide below and then dived into active discussion with attendees moving to backup slides. Some of the attendees asked if the presentation was in the memory stick provided this year but the answer was “No” as Networking Sessions are typically followup to main sessions. However the presentation is uploaded in SlideShare. Hope you find it useful – do share your comments / thoughts in this blog.
DISCLAIMER: The material in the presentation is NOT official SAP documentation or Roadmap plans. Neither is it endorsed by or official view of my company.
Here is also a set of useful links to SAP documentation / websites related to the topics I touched upon in my presentation.

You may also like to read my blog about SCM APO EhP 3. I closed off the session saying only time will tell how SAP SCM application that we know today will play out in future with advances in HANA and Cloud technology. But being at TechEd and keeping track on SCN provides insight on future direction that we can apply for keeping us upto-date with required skills. More on that topic in SCM space blogs in coming weeks after digestion of massive information immersion.
