Please enter your session proposals below, and nearer the time, we will organize them into appropriate time slots.
|Classical Talk (T) or Marketplace Session (M)|
|Consume UI5 Web Apps from the HTML Application Repository||While the development of the OpenUI5 technology advances with incredible speed, one thing remained almost constant for a very while time: The deployment flow of the web app to the Cloud Foundry environment. For years, we embedded the minified UI project as a static resource in the Approuter module. While this approach works our fine in simple scenarios, it might reach its limits when the application needs to scale. In this session, I will explain the disadvantages of the old approach and how to overcome them with the HTML5 Application Repository service.||SAPUI5, SAP Cloud Platform Cloud Foundry, Application Runtime||Marius Obert||I could also shift to focus a little bit to Reach and the UI5 web components if the audience is more interested in this||T|
|Using SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory and Open Source Kyma to extend SAP C/4HANA||Customers and partners of SAP C/4HANA got access to the so-called SAP C/4HANA Foundation in May 2019. It includes as well the SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory which provides a cloud-native way of extending SAP C/4HANA Applications. Learn about the joint vision of SAP CP XF to become the "cloud-native extensibility framework for the Intelligent Enterprise" and see Open Source Kyma live in action to extend SAP C/4HANA.||C/4HANA, Kyma Open Source, SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory||Marco Dorn||T|
|Side-by-Side Extensibility with Microsoft Azure||One option in the extensibility universe of SAP is the side-by-side extensibility. Usually, this is seen in close relation to the SAP Cloud Platform. In this talk, I want to show a small prototype on how to leverage the capabilities of the Microsoft Azure in combination with an SAP Business Suite backend to achieve a side-by-side extension. This is accompanied by a short introduction of the serverless paradigm used in the prototype. To grow some desire for making your hands dirty with Azure function as the central part of the prototype I will show how easy it is to set up Azure functions locally.||Side-by-Side Extensibility, Microsoft, Serverless, Functions||Christian Lechner||-||T|
|The Competitive Advantage of Cooperation - Why Nice Guys (should) Finish First|
Social Darwinism is widely considered a toxic term these days, and it is so for very good reasons. But there are observations from evolution that we can learn from and benefit for our teams, communities or even society. Richard Dawkins, one of the most renowned contemporary advocates of Darwinism and Evolutionary Biology, has dedicated a BBC documentary and a chapter in his first book "The Selfish Gene" to the subject.
This session is about the benefits of and prerequisites for cooperative behavior, the answer to "who are the fittest?" in "Survival of the Fittest", the ratio of effort and gain in competition, the characteristics of non-zero-sum games ("win-win-situation") and the role of diversity therein.
|Cooperation, Evolution, Survival, Selfishness, Altruism, Darwinism||Volker Stöffler|
This is a non-technical presentation based upon texts published by Robert Axelrod and Richard Dawkins. Axelrod provides a mathematical foundation for Dawkins' conclusions using game theory.

|Windows, Cubes & Rollups: OLAP Extensions in SQL||A core component in Business Intelligence is Online Analytical Processing (OLAP). It is based upon the aggregation of (usually many) rows to a (usually much smaller) result set. The SQL Standard contains some fundamental capabilities (MIN, MAX, AVG, SUM, ... functions, GROUP BY, HAVING) and more advanced functionality is usually provided by applications. But there is an extension to SQL, implemented in SAP products HANA, IQ and SQL Anywhere, which brings more powerful functionality into SQL and the database server itself. With more analytic capabilities closer to the data, there is potential for improvement, especially when dealing with extreme numbers of data rows aka Big Data. Here, I'll introduce basics and principles of these SQL extensions.||OLAP, SQL, Database, Analytics, Database Server, Business Intelligence||Volker Stöffler||T|
|SAP Cloud Application Programming Model - Jumpstart into Cloud Development||Cloud Native Development isn’t a no brainer. There are various languages and tools you can choose from, but it doesn’t necessarily make your life easier. The SAP Cloud Application Programming (CAP) Model is supposed to ease application development in the SAP ecosphere rapidly. An introduction into the concept of CAP with less slides, more live coding.||SAP Cloud Platform, Node.js, Java, OData, Cloud Foundry||Max Streifeneder||T|

|SAP Community: Engagement at its best|
Everyone is somehow involved in a community e.g. a sports club, neighborhood, a fan club, etc. Why are you part of these communities? The SAP Community offers a wide range of involvement and engagement opportunities. What are the similarities to your private communities? Join this session and find out what the SAP Community is, how to get part of it and how to actively contribute. After all, bringing people together, is what community is all about.
|Core Dev Skills: How to become better in becoming better||I will share my experience form Eskalation Projects and especially as an agile Software Engineering Coach||Software Developer|
|Remote Mob Programming||Mob programming is an interesting approach to develop solutions together in a team with only one keyboard in use and a creative mob standing behind the developer. I would like to share how we implemented "Remote Mob Programming" in a real life SAP project and what benefits and drawbacks we did experience.||Software Developer||T or M|
Multicloud or a look back from an architect
In this talk I will provide a look back at the last 12 months, share some views on the multicloud topic and what happened in the IT area from an architectural view.
A wide range of technologies and cloud solutions are available to clients, and they actually chose to make use of them. Which means that you can integrate a wide range of services into solutions. Some of the solutions discussed: Fruit Checker app, some custom UI5 apps, SAP DataHub and native mobile apps running an multicloud. And using a wide variety of tools available: Fiori, iOS, SCP, Azure, K8S, SAP CAP, ML, AI.
Architects, Cloud, Developers, SCP, Azure, K8S, Node.js, mobile, REST, SAP & non-SAP
I want to share in a not so serious talk the challenges I was confronted with last year, even more a challenge as the solutions were not always created in a save - aka 100% classic SAP and ABAP - environment.
If selected, I may include the story how SAP Stammtisch KA killed SAP's most famous variable.
|SQL Anywhere - from DBoT to Enterprise IT|
Starting from Embedded Databases for the Internet of Things, scaling up to Site or Work Group Level and integrating with Enterprise Level IT infrastructure, SAP SQL Anywhere is a standard compliant and full feature database server.
This session introduces capabilities and characteristics of this unsung hero in the SAP portfolio and shows matching use cases, architecture and topology.

|Knative: Setting your developer productivity on warp speed|
When it comes to container orchestration and deployment frameworks, Kubernetes introduced a paradigm shift in how operators and administrators think about workloads and backing services. By introducing a set of abstractions with well-defined behavior behind them such as pods, replicasets, physicalvolumes, services etc, operators and administrators were able to focus more on higher level details such as the application architecture, dependencies, resource consumption etc, rather than focusing on lower level infrastructure details. However, the developer faced many challenges to develop, test and deploy his application with the need to understand all those different abstractions and write a significant amount of yaml files.
Knative provides a bunch of higher level abstractions that allow the serverless developers to reach warp speed in productivity. The different abstractions cover the application deployment, scaling, traffic routing as well as a set of eventing abstractions that allows the developers to easily build events based systems, extensions, integration and allows him to easily connect to any events source or event consumers.
In this session we will see give an introduction about the different Knative components with the focus of how it increases developers productivity and show a live demo that demonstrates a typical Knative based development workflow and solution. We will use Kyma (www.kyma-project.io) as our flavor of Knative providers which comes bundled with Knative 0.8 at the time of writing this.

SAP Interoperability Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
Missing interoperability capabilities between ERP systems are a major reason for inefficient B2B interactions between companies. Instead of exchanging purchase orders or invoices fully automated between systems, companies keep using paper or PDF documents. Unfortunately, the Galactic Empire’s systems are no exception, but suffer from the same interoperability issues.
And here the story unfolds.
A small group of Rebels around service providers, SAP consultants and ABAP developers tries to tackle these interoperability issue by means of ALE, RFC, IDocs and APIs. In numerous small battles during SAP projects they fight in the Galactic Empire’s interoperability traps.
Meanwhile the Galactic Empire itself has introduced a new weapon system, which shall once and for all resolve the interoperability issue – the Galactic Empire’s Death star – or as it is known by its common name – the SAP Cloud Platform Integration.
In this talk we examine the root causes of interoperability gaps between SAP ERP systems from a technical point of view. We examine the technical foundations, which are necessary for seamless system-to-system communication and its potential pitfalls. Furthermore, we critically evaluate new approaches on document mapping automation using machine learning and why these approaches often compare to snake oil vending.
Finally, we investigate how the SAP Cloud Platform Integration is supposed to help to overcome interoperability issues and what technical challenges still need to be solved, when connecting to business partners.
