Monday started with an ASUG Annual Conference pre-conference on BI tools lead by SAP Mentor/ASUG Volunteer Ingo Hilgefort
At the start, the wired connections were not working; this is why we get to the room early to make sure things are in working order. Fortunately the vendor fixed everything 5 minutes before the session started.
The session was sold-out, and everyone I spoke to said they enjoyed the session and the content.

Tom said “Loving it so far, great update on BI products & interesting attendee questions in first hour”. We used Analysis Office, SAP Design Studio and SAP Lumira.
My favorite exercise was the Design Studio online composition exercise, shown above.
SAP Certification Education & Influence Council

Right after the pre-conference session Tom Cenens, Martin Gillet and I had a meeting with the SAP Certification Education & Influence Council. It was great to finally meet Susan Martin in person.
SAP Mentor Reception
Next was the SAP Mentor Reception. SAP’s Jeanne Carboni hosted the reception, explaining that Mentors “influence, enable, and innovate”. They are known experts who share the knowledge, expand the knowledge, and grow more experts. They innovate by advising SAP on new ideas and in some cases co-develop with SAP.
Pictured above is SAP’s Maggie Fox who said “this program (SAP Mentors) is important to me”.
The new SAP Mentors were introduced last Monday and received their shirts- including Matt Fraser who is a former SCN Member of the month.
Martin Gillet provided most of the pictures in the above video. I used them to create this Animoto. Already I am looking forward to the next SAP Mentor reunion which is SAP TechEd Las Vegas – speaking of which Don’t Delay – Submit your ASUG SAP TechEd Abstract Today
