SAP TechEd 2016 – What kind of content is to be developed?
Technical Know-How and education at its best!
The questions to always ask from SAP TechEd content perspective:
- What is the key technical challenge of a particular session and how to solve it from a technical perspective?
- Which technical job profiles will be addressed in the session?
- What are the key takeaways for the desired job profiles
- No marketing, pure value prop session and/or even sales pitches!
- Community Sessions should distinguish from the “standard” SAP TechEd Sessions, as they go beyond the strategic tracks and hot topics (listed below). Choose topics that are relevant to and valued by the community and try attract the passionate and large audience because this is a special topic that is not addressed in the “standard” TE track.
