A litte over three years ago I attended an SAP Screen Personas customer day organised by SAP UK ( Thoughts on SAP Screen Personas after event in London). Much of the content was delivered by Peter Spielvogel and Tobias Queck, and it was that day that sold me on Personas as a product. One of the most important parts of the day for me was the opportunity to get some hands-on time with Personas, to take one or two of the SAPgui transactions that I know our users had issues with and see what I could do with them. Way back then, Personas was a much simpler product than it is today, but between the hands-on session and what Peter and Tobias said, I was sold both on the product and on their vision for what it would become. The rest, as they say, is history 🙂
For the last couple of years I’ve been trying to get SAP UK to arrange a repeat event. We’ve got close a couple of times but always something has got in the way. Finally, I’m pleased to say, there’s going to be another Personas Day in the UK! Peter and Tobias have very kindly offered to come over and help me with a couple of events at the end of June.
Firstly there’s a UK SAP User Group User Experience SIG meeting on June 27th, at which they’re giving a couple of sessions. This event is for User Group members only, I’m afraid. If you are a member you can book a place here: https://www.sapusers.org/events/1273/20160627-user-experience-sig. The agenda and meeting details are all on that page.
If you are not a UK User Group member, don’t feel left out – the best is yet to come. The following day, June 28th, Peter and Tobias are going to run a full Personas day with exercises and hands-on access to a Personas system throughout the day. It will cover everything from basic use through to more advanced scripting, building Fiori flavours and integrating to the Fiori launchpad. This event is open to all, but places are limited. Please complete this form to reserve a place – SAP Screen Personas Training Day. There is no cost for attending the day, but lunch and refreshments are not included (sorry). There are catering outlets nearby for food and coffee.
Both events are being held here at the University of Warwick. If you are attending both and staying over, or arriving on Monday evening for the Personas Day, we will all get together for dinner in a nearby pub. You will be very welcome to join us – please indicate this on the booking form so I can be sure to reserve enough space. Again, sorry but the cost of this not included.
I’m very grateful to Peter and Tobias for their willingness to support these events. I’m really looking forward to them.
