I recently attended the Mastering SAP Technologies conference in Sydney Australia presented by the Eventful Group . This was an excellent event and a great opportunity for local SAP customers and partners to gain a valuable insight into the direction of the SAP technology stack, to socialize and network and to meet many of the great Aussie SAP mentors!
The event is a 2 day conference that was preceded by an Inside Track event on the Sunday afternoon. The main conference has 4 tracks (so until I work out that whole cloning problem) I was only able to attend a fraction (let's go with about 1/4 ) of the content. Hopefully you will find some of the things I took away with me as interesting as I did and you will be intrigued to find out more, I have included links, where possible, to help you find out more.
One nice aspect of this event was the relative lack of "sales talk" and a firm focus on "how and why things work the way they do". I love this, I recently have come to the conclusion that more than anything else I love to understand how and why something works the way it does. If you are interested in reading a good general overview of how the conference was presented I can recommend reading this blog post from Dennis Howlett.
Over the next few days, I’ll provide you with an overview of what I took from the event – these are just my own experiences and perspectives based on what I saw, so if you see something that inspires debate, let me know.
The Keynote Sessions – did they deliver?
The were some good keynotes from SAP CIO Oliver Bussmann, SAP President of Global Solutions Sanjay Poonen, SVP Communities & Social Media at SAP Mark Yolton and Independent Enterprise Mobility Analyst and Consultant André Guillemin.
You can actually watch some of the keynote sessions here. I hope you find them as thought provoking as I did. IMHO – the sessions delivered what they should have – they provided some valuable insight into emerging and existing technologies. They also raised a whole host of questions and ideas. What did you think? Please take the time to rate the post below and please give me any feedback via the comments area.
