Blog It Forward – Juergen Noe
I was blogged it Forward by Jitendra Kansal. You can read his excellent BIF blog here. It was joy reading it. I learned much about India, what I didn’t know before.
My Name is Jürgen Noe.
I work for 13years as an SAP BW Consultant with deep ABAP knowledge now. Since July 2013 I work as Freelancer and independent Consultant. Before I started my career in SAP, I formerly also programmed in MS Visual Studio, MS Access, JAVA, Cobol, Pascal, SmallTalk, C/C++ and even Assembler. Yes, I like programming a lot and I am always interested in exciting News regarding Software development. SAP BW made a very impressing development over the years. With SAP BO BI and HANA new Technologies were integrated, so you work never stops.
Fun Facts about my Country
Germany is triple worlchampion in Soccer (1954, 1974, 1990), so I think because it’s again a year ending with 4, Germany has big chances to win the world Championship this year in Brasil again .-). Yes, I like Soccer very much. Below you find a Picture, where I was in Stutgart Mercedes-Benz Arena and watched the game Germany vs. Chile live.
Well, unfortunately the game was not that good as exptected, but as Gary Linnker said: “Soccer is that game, which lasts 90 minutes and Germany will always win”.
Beside that Germany:
– has over 300 kinds of bread ( I didn’t taste them all, but I can recommend “Bauernbrot”, if you ever have the Chance to be in Germany and look for some good tasting bread
– has 35 dialects – People form Hamburg in the North of Germany don’t understand People from Munich deep in the South, if they are talking in their dialects
– Gummy bears, Mercedes Benz and book printing are invented in Germany, and of course remember Konrad Zuse, Inventor of the first Computer at all
– The longest official word in german language: Vermögenszuordnungszuständigkeitsübertragungsverordnung (56 letters) – in the Internet you may even find longer german words
Fun facts about my home town
My howetown is Mannheim.
Karl Drais invented in 1817 the first bicycle, Werner von Siemens invented in 1880 the first electrical elevator, Julius Hatry built 1929 the first rocket airplane – so you can see, Mannheim is a very good place for important inventions. It’s not too far from Walldorf, the HQ of SAP. If you travel to SAP’s german HQ, give Manheim a visit. It has lots of beautifull places, like Luisenpark – one of Europes greatest and most bautifull parcs and also a good place for many concerts in SAP Arena. Also walk over “Planken” (planks) a very nice shopping mile, you will like it.
Below you find a Picture of “Rosengarten” – well known for it’s DSAG Technology Days (this year for the first time in Stuttgart because of too many participants that “Rosengarrten” could not manage)
What is your favourite place in the world?
I like Toscana (Italy) or Provence (France) very much – Toscana in spring is very beautifull, much colours, good drinking, very nice People – I hope I can travel there soon once again.
What do you most enjoy on SCN?
I enjoy most the contests. I participated in an XCelsius contest for the olympic winter games and prepared a nice Dashboard. I didn’t win, but it was fun a lot. I look forward too each new contest coming up. I also like the gamification. I will participate in SAP Netweaver Portal 2014 Movie Challenge
What do you think are the key elements for a successfull Project?
I think, the key element is listening and understanding, good communication and working together, helping each other. These are the really key elements in a Project. In my opinion many Projects fail, not because they didn’t have the best programmer or the best project Manager or the best Software Tools available, no they failed, just because of wrong communication or no communication at all.
What makes you smile/laugh?
My Little son (5 years) makes me often smile. I also like laughing about a really good Comedy movie, but they’re rare in the meantime. I like the old stars like Charlie Chaplin or Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.
Had you not been in Software at all, where would you have been?
Indded a very difficult question, because I liked programming from the beginning and feel it really as my true profession. If there were no Software at all, I may have become teacher for mathematics. Because I like teaching young people, explain difficult things and work with them.
I would be glad if you can answer some of these questions:
1.) In which movie would you like to have taken part as actor?
2.) Which SAP product has excited you most in the past years?
3.) Which features will your favourite SAP product have within next five years?

How is the freelance life?
Thank you for sharing; I think BIF's are great tourism promotion for various parts around the world.
I hope to visit USA soon, I've never been there. USA has very beautifull places too.
Yes, BIF is really a great tourism Promotion. There are really wonderfull places on earth to visit.
Well, freelance life is great, start was perfect.
very nice BIF! I'm a big fan of information about who invented what and where and when, so your approach hit home for me. 🙂
I'm from the North-East of Germany and even I can't understand the North-Western dialect. But at least I understand our "Plattdeutsch". 😀 So it's true... those dialects are so far away from the normal German sometimes, there's no chance in understanding. *g*
So. True! You don't even have to long further than SCN itself for this. How many threads go round and round because of miscommunication? And how many are solved SO fast, because everything was explained detailed and understandable?
Understanding was needs to be done is such an important part of pretty much everything, it's strange, that this is also one of the biggest issues most of the time.
Charlie Chaplin, Stan and Ollie... as a film fan I have to ask: are Bud Spencer and Terence Hill on your smile-list, too? ^^
13 years as a BW consultant... Hats off...
Thank you so much for accepting the invitation. Yes, finally your BIF is live. 😀 I am really impressed with the invention information what you shared about. I didnt know it before. I must say you got a cute smile. I am not sure if you have already visited India, if not then plan a trip and i am sure you will love it. Good to know about you through this blog. Thanks.
Very good BIF entry.
I listened to that longest word using Google Translate. It seems impossible to say it aloud.
The English translation has 6 words though.
You could correct Jitendra's surname.
Yes.. He just missed the small word "n".
this longest word if not longer exist.. 🙂
The longest one before was Grundstücksverkehrsgenehmigungszuständigkeitsübertragungsverordnung..... More letters but the same fate.. The parliament, decided is not longer needed..
you're absolutely right..it was the longest word, I corrected the blog.
Hi Jürgen, Mannheim is my hometown as well...;-)
Indeed, Germany had good chances to win in Brazil 🙂
I just published my Blog It Forward - Pedro Freitas from Brazil, maybe you will like it!
