Hello SAP Inside Track enthusiasts!
This the second blog post of the new series to share news from the SAP Inside Track ecosystem. Missed the first blog post from November last year? Here is the link.
First things first: Let’s start with the current situation and SAP Inside Track event calendar. The following events have been cancelled or al least postponed due to the COVID-19 situation as of today:
- Mar 20, Reading / UK
- Mar 21, Pune / India
- Mar 21, Novo Hamburgo / Brazil
- Mar 28, Frankfurt / Germany
- Apr 25, Timisoara / Romania
- Apr 25, Düsseldorf / Germany
- May 2, Copenhagen / Denmark
An SAP Inside Track and an SAP Stammtisch are on-site meetings with a focus on the local SAP community. This is the heart and the strength of these formats. Meeting the other SAP experts you know from chats and online platforms face-to-face is such a great experience and the reason why we see so many local community events all over the world.
But what is a joy in normal times, becomes a threat during a pandemic situation.
What can we do as SAP community in these times? Do we need an Online Stammtisch, a Virtual Tech-Night, a Remote Meet-Up, or should we send our avatars into cyberspace? Yes, why not! We as community are free to give it a try. – But please don’t call it SAP Inside Track or SAP Stammtisch. Find a new name for a new format.
What can you do, if you want to enjoy SIT content, but your local event is cancelled? One idea of course is to spend some time in OpenSIT – I teased this new platform already in the last news blog post. The mission of OpenSIT is to make the session content recorded at SAP Inside Tracks easily accessible to SAP community members.
All SIT session recordings are currently hosted on YouTube. opensit.net makes all SAP Inside Track session recordings accessible from a single place.
This knowledge sharing event will run on May 30/31 and the call for content is already open. Please read this blog post from Jakob for more details.
UPDATE: The SAP Online Track team published a ‘Weekly Update’ video on YouTube.
Do you have some plans to organise online events, or will you write more blog posts in the next weeks? What are your plans – let us know in the comments.
In the next news blog post I want to talk about some sitCOUNCIL projects. We are working on some new stuff, but pssst …
