The location unfortunately is not barrier-free.

Sessions Suggestions

Here you are invited to add value to SAP Inside Track Hamburg. Take the stage and share your SAP experiences, open the discussion and take new insights from other experts, geeks and developers back home. See the feedback in the videos why it is worth to host a session at an SAP Inside Track.

Please note that all sessions are supposed to last at most 45 minutes! If your session is shorter, you don't need to blow it up, please feel free to add it. If your session will need some more time, add your session and mention it. We will figure out how to handle it.

Using HANA DB as base to overcome data silosMarkus Theilen30 - 45 min

It is very common in large and grown legacy IT landscapes to a lot of data silos, where each of it can contain parts of interesting data that needs to be combined to be really useful. In this session I would like to explain the approach we took to get more information out of our data.

Keywords: Hana, Big Data, Advanced Analytics

SQL Anywhere - your flight mode database serverVolker Stöffler45 min

This is a live and interactive version of my SCN blog with the same title. It's an introduction to the capabilities and characteristics of SAP SQL Anywhere, a standard compliant and full feature (including OLAP SQL) database server running on lightweight hardware (starting with Raspberry Pi) and workplace computers to server machines (workgroups, small enterprises), supplemented by a deployment option for embedded systems like smart sensors for IoT scenarios.

Keywords: SQL, SQL Anywhere, database, workplace, workgroup

SAP IQ - Business Intelligence and vertical data processing with 8 GB RAM or lessVolker Stöffler45 min

SAP IQ is a HANA companion for Smart Data Access / Integration and SAP BW NLS, to keep data way beyond memory limits accessible. But it also is a full-blown data warehouse system of its own, with column oriented data storage and powerful analytics capabilities. It can scale up to the world's largest data warehouse and down to desktop or notebook computers. This session is intended to show the benefits and capabilities of the vertical data structures used inside and their impact on high performance processing and parallel execution of Business Intelligence style queries. See also this SCN blog post.

Keywords: SQL, SAP IQ, database, data warehouse, business intelligence, world record, petabytes

Mobile of People & Internet of Things: State of the UnionKarol Kalisz
30-45 min

Mobile devices are first-class citizens of Internet of Things today. Moving from human-to-human communication towards machine-to-human and further towards machine-to-machine. Today it is clear that IoT would not exist without Mobile technology. Trying to answer on the question “how the mobile technology must adjust to support IoT in delivering business value” and “how IoT has to support mobile technology to handle big data and real time insights – directly from the sensors to the user”. Year 2017 will bring new challenges and solutions.

2 live demos of IoT included.

in case 45 min, also updates on SAP Leonardo 2017.

2 UI5 Applications with IoT platform inbetween. producing and Consuming IoT, real working example @ SAP Cloud PlatformKarol Kalisz
30 minReal working showcase of 2 UI5 applications which produce and consume IoT data. If this get accepted, we will play together (you need to bring your mobile device) and see how we together produce IoT data which can help presenters on conferences to talk with bigger audiences. During that we will see different technical solutions behind the scenes - it is explaining the technical implementation in detail on SAP CP of the application used in the session "Mobile of People & Internet of Things: State of the Union".WLAN nice
Screen Personas or Fiori? The answer is both!

Douglas Cezar


20 min

If your company is looking for ways to make SAP ERP friendlier, much more simple and productive so your users can get their work done better and faster, Fiori can be the natural choice for mobile-enabled scenarios.

On the other hand, SAP Screen Personas has incredible powers and many times it's the best and fastest tool to completely change for better the user interface on both standard and non-standard SAP GUI screens.

There are more than 400.000 standard screens in SAP ERP and Screen Personas is fit to simplify, merge and automate almost any of them, even those ones that aren't enabled for standard Fiori by SAP.

After working on three successful implementations of Screen Personas, I'm sure that it can bring much value for SAP customers, consultants, and developers!

Unit Tests and Tests-Seams for ABAPRainer Winkler @RainerWinkler30 - 45 minLegacy Code part 1. An Introduction to Unit Tests for applications with dependencies is given. The focus is on ABAP 7.50 where Test-Seams are available. Different strategies to develop tests are discussed. 
Do Visualizations help during development? Experiences after one year using SAP2Moose.Rainer Winkler @RainerWinkler30 - 45 min

Legacy Code part 2. The potential and problems of software visualizations in SAP development projects are discussed.

Available extractors to class and sequence diagrams (PlantUML) are shown and discussed.

The visualization tool SAP2Moose extracts dependency diagrams. It is shown and discussed together with a Moose addon to suport customizable diagrams. An experience report of using SAP2Moose in projects is given.

Code Challenges for training, motivation and Workshops.

Stefan Schmöcker &


30-45 minCode Katas and code challenges are a popular topic these days. We would like to present a framework where programming tasks of any kind can be defined and administrated . Users can chose a task, provide solutions which will be tested automatically.WLAN + VPN for live Demo would be nice
Lessons learned: Connecting SAPUI5 to a RESTful-API from SAP Identity Management (IDM)Lennart Kayser30-45 min

SAP IDM is an important part of maintaining the Security of the landscape and Enterprise systems, however, the UI sometimes introduces challenges for end users.

By extending the User Interface via UI5 new functionality and ease of use become possible. User Experience is now the driver.

During this session, we will discuss our experience (and issues) developing several Apps, using SAP Web IDE, SAP BUILD and pure SAPUI5.

Integration of SAP Change Request Managament (ChaRM) into the Application Lifecycle Management Tool Mylyn of the Eclipse IDE.Torben Heits 20 min 

Mylyn is an ALM-Tool for Eclipse which provides a task-focused user interface. It allowes to link your development artifacts to specific tasks, which makes it easier to keep an overview of your relevant objects.

I want to show you an Eclipse Plug-In which allows you to integrate your change documents from ChaRM into Mylyn.

 A Performance Architecture for Custom Code on HANADr. habil. Burghard von Karger, SALT Solutions AG 30 min Even in a HANA-based system, conflicts can arise between the performance requirements of online processing and   reporting.  We look at an invoice verification system that was custom-developed in 40 man years, explain the performance challenges created by migrating from a classical warehouse to a HANA system and show how they were solved using a journal-based data architecture.
