How do you read a blog? – #100DaysOfSAPAnalytics


Update 30.10.2022: Ended this action after 60 reads on 23.09.2022. Enjoyed the journey but need to move to other priorities.


My subject matter area is not limited to but all around SAP Analytics (from frontend to backend, from SAP Master Data Governance to SAP Analytics Cloud to SAP AI Core and even SAP S/4HANA Group Reporting and so on).

For sure, sometimes I just fly over some blogs for relevant information, sometimes I dig deeper and sometimes I can not find time and save it in my bookmarks.

To be true, my list of unread blogs is very long. There are a lot of good reads out there enriched with links complex visualisations and embedded videos. And this is how I ideally would read a blog:



Above I used this blog by Deniz Osoy as an example which marked with “15 minutes read”. Mh, ok, maybe if you just read the text…

And than there are some days 3, 4, 5 interesting relevant blogs are published (ok, sometimes also 0 in one week)

The thing is, my job is so knowledge intense that this is not the only thing to follow the blogs.

  • Make a tutorial to try out new features, tools and concepts
  • Follow a SAP Community Call
  • Do a webinar
  • Read the latest newsletter
  • Surf the latest SAP Partner Edge updates
  • Make an openSAP course from time to time

And here we are just talking mainly about the technical skill and knowledge.

In staying up to date it is often just about being consistent. I like challenges like 100 Days of Code or 66 Days of Data which helps to stay on a topic longer and establish behaviours to continue it in the future.

Therefore I got the idea to start #100DaysOfSAPAnalytics on Twitter as I have not seen anything similar yet. Starting on 27.06.2022 I maintain a curated list of SAP Community blogs worth reading from my point of view in the area of SAP Analytics. These blogs are about currently relevant topics (even if the blog is some years old, often they are updated by the authors) but likely no blogs about events or collections of latest features.

I basically do it for myself but a journey is always better with company. I would be happy to see you joining (if you like Twitter) or get into the discussion what are your ways to stay current or get recommendations about blogs in this area you like and may come back to several times?


Please follow for updates and like the blogs you like most πŸ™‚

From Day 48 I followed an extended BTP Integration Showcase. I have a little dynamic here started with 11 blogs but 2 very current blogs seems to be a good fit and enhancement:

Day 50 was a hint by Wei Han in her blog from Day 49. I also included the latest blogs from her and colleagues on Day 58-60 with this from Day 59 just published. In the Blog from Day 53 I saw a interesting link to the blog I added for Day 53 aboiut Geo Enrichment.

Formerly, since Day 16 I followed the 7 + overview parts “SAP BTP Showcase”. I dived deeper with some topics, so this was the full journey until Day 38:

      Yours? Always!

      Unfortunately, that is exactly the point. I am currently at the point where I am strongly driven by other issues. I expect to come back again soon.
