If you still have time, I encourage you to join the usability testing session for SAP Screen Personas 3.0. We still have a few openings left at the time of this post. Sylvia Barnard has listed five reasons you should sign up for the usability testing.

One of the highlights of TechEd in Las Vegas was meeting so many participants from the SAP Screen Personas Practitioner Forum and SCN in person. If you are a member of these communities and we have interacted online, please find me and introduce yourself. It is always nice to put a face with a name and voice.

The goal at TechEd is to make sure you gain the knowledge you need to meet your business objectives. If there is something you want to know and do not see it on the list above, please let us know so we can prepare.

See you in Berlin!

    Even SAP expert could not follow the product naming pushed by marketing department.

    River RDE is dead !

    I hope one day the relevant SAP department will learn that changing product name every 6 months is not a good strategy.

    In our world it is mainly the reverse … keep the product name as long as possible (look at the car name).
