The fourth of May is coming up, and in 2019 that means not only Star Wars Day, but also the fifth SAP Inside Track Copenhagen event :-D Yes, it’s time for another get-together of the Danish SAP community and friends from around the world.
In March, we posted an open Call for Speakers here on the SAP Community site, and based on your proposals, we’ve put together a pretty awesome agenda, if we do say so ourselves. You’ll find the sessions below, along with the registration link (as always, tickets are free of charge).
As SIT Copenhagen veterans already know, we run the event in the spirit of Danish “hygge”. Hygge can be hard to translate, but at its core is having a nice, cosy time with friends in a laid-back atmosphere. We strive to infuse hygge into the entire event, including serving the most hygge lunch imaginable, namely open-faced sandwiches on rye bread (“smørrebrød” in Danish). If you haven’t tried smørrebrød yet, you are in for a treat.
SAP Inside Track Copenhagen is a place for knowledge sharing, networking and discussions of topics ranging from classic SAP to the newest cloud technologies, from both local and global perspectives. We hope you take this opportunity to meet your SAP fellows on Star Wars Day :-)
The Future of ABAP programming - or - All That You Know is at an End by Paul Hardy

How to build an innovation culture, powered by diversity by Malin Liden
Innovation was never optional, but the speed at which we have to innovate, and even reinvent ourselves, has dramatically increased. This means that we can no longer rely on just the CEO, or the strategy department, or a dedicated innovation team to ensure we stay ahead of the game. Innovation has to be in everyone’s job description. But innovation is hard! Being innovative means being brave enough to stick out from the crowd, being the odd one out and fight for ideas that others may not yet see the value of. In this presentation we discuss what everyone of us can do to contribute to an innovation culture, that is powered by, and supports diversity.

Planning your Fiori Elements project by Steve Guo
Fiori Elements is a metadata driven technology, that can help you develop faster and deliver business value in an agile way. But it also brings risks and uncertainty, due to its template-based nature and complex architecture. In this session, you will learn how to plan using Fiori Elements in a real-life project, from user research, architecture, capabilities and skill-building perspectives.
Getting information from data stream sources into ERP by Søren Amdi Bach
The new data stream sources like Internet of Things, social media and more, contain valuable business information, and it is desirable to get this information transferred into the ERP system. In this talk, I will discuss the design principles to be considered or avoided, when bringing these potentially infinite sequences of data into an ERP system.
