Feb 22 2014 – SAP Hyderabad community participated in its second ever SAP Inside Track event. The planning for the event started one& a half month ago under my initiative. It has been a long time since many of us were waiting eagerly for the day.

How it all began:

To Promote SAP Inside Track event, I have written a blog which talks about SAP Inside Track and reached out to our fellow SCN members through the community in all forms possible – Word of mouth, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Posters to drive maximum participation. In parallel, we started reaching out to our participants for Presentations.

Join Us For SAP Inside Track Hyderabad On 22 FEB 2014


We received close to 510 Participant nominations & 75 topic nominations for presenting at SIT Hyderabad. We thought of making it large by having three tracks namely Analytics, Functional and Technical with ten presentations (all live) per track for the event.

Plenary session Slide deck


The event being “Community” driven made it more special. The sessions have been very interactive and enriched the audience with the latest happenings around the topic of discussions. It is very pleasing to see the presenters willing to share and contribute to the community on their experiences and learning’s. And the very enthusiastic audience utilized this opportunity at their best.


Lot of networking happened during the whole day. We all got to know about each other especially about their SAP work experiences, how SCN has become part of their life. It was a great success for all the participants and presenters to make contacts and new acquaintances and know there specializations.


It was a very well startup of the event considering the number of participants which was followed by a sumptuous lunch where the most networking happened. And then resumed again with tracks continuing to share the valuable knowledge to all the attendees.

The day of Knowledge sharing ended with a wrap-up session where the local community members shared what they liked about SIT& the announcement of Top 3 speakers per track commenced.

The volunteers’ unmatched contribution ensured that all participants were smoothly inducted into the event and had a great learning experience throughout the eight hours duration of the event.

It was quite inspiring to meet and talk to different people and be in these sessions. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the Deloitte, SAP Press & all the volunteers, presenters who shared their experience, knowledge & Participants. It is truly a well-organized and managed effort from the organizers& volunteers.



Though all the sessions were excellent, they have recognized top 3 in each of the tracks. SAP Press will soon be gifting them eBooks as per their choice.

Every one of us agreed that next year we can make it even larger and better and more SAP community members should present the sessions in SIT.

We have a Facebook group SAP Inside Track India to connect and share among the local community members in India.

As well on Linked,  SAP Inside Track India LinkedIn Group is created especially for SAP Inside Track India , Just find out happening in India about SIT , Join this group.

SIT provides a great platform for local SAP community members as well as global SAP Mentors and community members to network, share and learn from each other. It may also be a substitute to some extent, for some who may not be able to attend SAP TechEd (Now d-code) due to travel or budget constraints.

It gives me immense pleasure to witness one of the biggest Inside track events till date with 210 active participants & with a total of 30 sessions in 3 Tracks.

The success of the event has definitely boosted our enthusiasm to host more such community events in Hyderabad

In return created a video on our SIT HYD 2014, have fun…

    Hi Mahesh,

    First of all thanks for the invitation. It was really a good experience to attend SIT HYD 2014. It was well planned, excellently organised, very enthusiastic volunteers.

    It was the first time for me to attend SIT and I came all the way from Bengaluru to attend this event, because of the hot topics presented by experts from SAP community.

    And of course, I was satisfied beyond my expectations 🙂

    It was an excellent forum to get to know about our SAP Community people, gain knowledge about the current technology and be aware of the future innovations from SAP.

    As part of Analytics Track, I really feel it is very important to participate in as many this kind of events as possible.

    Once again thanks a lot for one and all who is responsible for SIT HYD 2014.
