It’s been over a week since SAP TechEd Las Vegas, and I am still wondering how I made it through.
Day 0 (Monday) – this was the ASUG pre-conference day, something I participate in for several years now.
Pictured: Ingo Hilgefort who lead this ASUG preconference
On the screen, attendees had several exercises to complete. You can also see it is one machine per attendee.
Reviews were very positive.
Tuesday – the conference starts!
The morning started with a breakfast, recognizing the new SAP Community Champions
Next, Fausto Motter received his SAP Community Champion shirt.
Here is the great Susan Keohan receiving her SAP Community Champion shirt.
Marssel Vilaça receiving his shirt
The great Michelle Crapo receives her shirt.
Jim Spath was not present, but I found his champion banner.
Craig Cmehil explains more about the SAP Champions:
Then I started to attend some sessions
Here’s a video of a demo that David Stocker did for QRC4 Widgets
This was in a road map session
I also helped with AIN360, Mastering SAP Analytics Cloud:
This hands-on session was FULL before the conference began.
AIN 376 Hands-On: SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP BW/4HANA, and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud was held twice, and both sessions were full before the conference started. Big thanks to Ingo Hilgefort and Eric Schemer for letting me assist. Attendees told me they received a lot of value out of the exercises.
Wednesday I did a community session at the Community Theater – Mynyna Chau explains the sessions:
I want to thank Mynyna, Jelena Perfiljeva Michelle Crapo Mike Doyle for attending my session on best practices for building your brand on the SAP Community. My slides are here. Thanks to Christian Braukmüller for letting me borrow some of his slides from last year.
Also here, I chatted with Abhinav Shrivastava, an SAP TechEd Scholarship giveaway winner:
This is the second session of AIN376
Several attendees wanted their photo with Ingo.
I attended some lecture sessions which I will write about later.
Then I was back doing another live interview, this time with SAP’s Bare Said, head of HANA and Analytics at SAP, about spaces – replay is here.
I attended an ASUG influence session on SAP Analytics Designer with Jie Deng
I attended AIN379 Integrating Cloud Applications from SAP into SAP Data Warehouse Cloud – the exercises were very well done. Lastly, I attended another ASUG influence session led by Ingo Hilgefort and Sylvain Garneau.
On Friday, I attended CAA262, How to Extend SAP S/4HANA Embedded Analytics.
I asked my partner if he wanted to do the on-premise part or cloud, as I wanted to do on-premise. Fortunately we both wanted to do on-premise. We made it through the exercises with 4 minutes to spare.
This was the last picture I took at the event. Farewell, Las Vegas
