A barroom conversation about SAP and the Cloud – but without the noise and the drinks
Jon Reed and I met in the hotel lobby in Orlando on the day after the Sapphire had ended and had an interesting talk about all things Cloud. We neglected to tape this conversation so we wanted to try and duplicate this interaction. Last Friday night (late!), we met online for a long conversation about SAP’s cloud activities. We had started out with a structure / topics to discuss but as the conversation progressed, we moved in a variety of unexpected directions and covered a bunch of fun topics (Simple Finance / Simple Suite and the SAP ecosystem, Cloud Foundry and the HANA Cloud Platform, the HANA Enterprise Cloud and customizations, etc).
There is a video of us talking (not too exciting – just talking heads) but I suggest listening to the podcast instead of watching the video.
The relaxed / informal conversation is one that we would have in a brewpub after a long day at some IT conference. The advantage of the podcast is that you don’t struggle to hear the conversation in a room with other patrons screaming for more drinks. The only things missing were the cold beer and tasty bar snacks.
Here is the link for the podcast.
