The sessions are what an SAP Inside Track event is all about. Come and take the stage or our marketplace and share your experiences, knowledge, and passion. Talk about something that interests you, something you have done recently, your SAP TechEd experiences and ignite a two-way discussion that benefits all participants.

Please enter your session proposals below, and nearer the time, we will organize them into appropriate time slots.

This year we’ll have a classic lecture part. So if you want to do a lecture for about 30 minutes then the table below is best for you:

Survive the Chaos with Tips and Tricks to Handle Legacy ABAP CodeI will speak about techniques to handle complex ABAP applications. I demonstrate Unit Tests for code with dependencies using Test Seams. I explain how this is used to apply a basic technique to work with Legacy Code; make Unit Tests to characterize and understand a code, then use this as a safety net while making the changes. I finally demonstrate how the openSource Projekt Moose2Model can be used to keep an overview and jump to the code using ADT links.ABAP, Legacy Code, Testing, Visualization

SAP IQ - Business Intelligence and vertical data processing with 8 GB RAM or lessSAP 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.

Extensions in the age of S/4HANAThe S/4HANA in its broadest sense (including the SAP Cloud Platform) not only lead to a new programming model, but also to new options (and variants within the options) when it comes to extensibility and add-on development. In this talk, I would like to share my thoughts about the different options and the consequences for the customers and partners. We will take a look into the topics of in-app extensibility, side-by-side extensibility, what options there might be if you want to avoid the cloud and what might happen to my beloved BRFplus (smile).S/4HANA, Extensibility, SAP Cloud Platform, InApp Extensibility, Side-by-Side Extensibility

How to visualize Query Semantics using Open Source Graphviz

When analyzing the performance of complex queries, you may find yourself with multi table joins, e.g. generated by a BI system, coded by an out-of-reach developer or evolved through a long life cycle. A semantic query graph visualizes the topology of such a join and helps to understand the options the optimizer has at hand for an execution plan. The graph unveils possible shortcuts or extensions you can provide to enhance query performance by providing additional options to the query optimizer

I will demonstrate how to use the Open Source utility Graphviz for visualization.

This presentation is based upon ANSI Standard SQL and not restricted to a specific RDBMS implementation. The method is a generic approach to deal with the challenge of understanding and possibly enhancing the topology of a multi table join query.

Custom Development with BOPF - how it changes with S/4 HANABOPF is around since years on the ABAP AS. As it is part of the S/4 programming model, it becomes even more important.

SQL Anywhere - your flight mode database serverThis 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.SQL, SQL Anywhere, database, workplace, workgroup, occasionally connected

Conquering the unknown world between two SAP ERP systems

SAP systems back some of the world’s largest supply chains. Porsche, BASF, EDEKA and the like heavily rely on the use of SAP to realize their procurement and sales processes. For most SAP developers, however, the perceived world usually ends at the SAP system’s boundaries.  

In this talk we will explore the unknown land, which we must conquer in order to connect two ERP systems. We examine the technical protocols such as AS2, X.400, OFTP2, etc., give an overview of the concept of Value Added Networks (VAN), and show the particularities of different industries, taking automotive and retail as an example. Furthermore, we introduce the different standards and their ideas such as VDA, EDIFACT, ANSI ASC X12, etc. and show why XML is not always the better choice. 

Finally, we show the technical challenges we have to master in an SAP system in order to get the necessary information in and out of the system using IDocs. After this talk you should have a thorough understanding of the previously unknown world between two ERP systems.

Applying Problem-Solving Techniques to Programming

Ask any developer if problem-solving and decision-making activities are part of their day, and they will answer “Yes.” But how many of us have had training in problem-solving, and why is it so important to learn problem-solving skills? Making critical decisions is an essential element of our work, so we should know how to do it effectively. This session covers the techniques and tools we programmers can use to transform ourselves into “solution finders.”

Challenges in SAP integration testing (SAP PI/PO and Clound Integration) based on int4 IFTT

We are specialists in automated testing of SAP integration both of SAP PI/PO and SAP Cloud Platfrom Integegration middlewares and the ABAP backend logic. During the session we would like to share our project experience, explain the difference between classical SAP system testing and the disrupted landscape with 3rd party and SAP systems integrated all together. We developed an SAP Addon to perform such testing. We would like to describe our unique concepts how we automate this process e2e in SAP landscape and perform a live demo. The session will address project challenges in area of SAP Integration like DevOps, migrations, upgrades and rollouts.

Dos and Don'ts, when using BRF+With S/4 HANA BRF+ is getting more and more important.

  1. Was für ein Codejam wird denn am 6.10.2017 stattfinden? Zu welchem Thema?

  2. Mich würde auch interessieren, um was es in der Code Jam geht und wo man sich registrieren kann. Es sind ja nur noch wenige Wochen.

  3. Gibt es bald den Schedule, also die Zeiten und exakten Vorträge? Das wäre toll.

  4. Kann jemand die Slides von @rainerwinkler herunterladen? Ich bekoimme die Meldung, dass die "private" sind.

  5. Hallo Volker, sorry die Slides waren privat. Ich habe die Einstellung gerade auf öffentlich geändert. Jetzt sollte es gehen. Viele Grüsse, Rainer
