Asim Mian

Creating Blackberry Apps with WebWorks and BSP
Blackberry WebWorks is a frame work provided and supported by RIM for deploying applications on Blackberries. The development is relatively easy, based on HTML, CSS and Javascript and it provides APIs for accessing native device features. I would like to shed a light on this framework and based on it, how to create and deploy Blackberry apps integrated with SAP System.

IT103

Peter McNulty

The Future of Process Orchestration with SAP
Every organization has some uniqueness to them in the way they run their business. Most organisations have accommodated these unique requirements through modification of their underlying SAP applications. In an environment where change is rapidly accelerating, the ability for organisations to adapt is hampered by the inflexibility of their process logic being locked in code. Many organisations are abstracting their unique requirements out of their application code into a more flexible business process framework, utilising an underlying service-oriented architecture, in order to more quickly address the most dynamic aspects of their business. This presentation will focus on SAP’s Process Orchestration strategy for providing a unified platform to enable organisations to more flexibly address change in their business.
