|Volker Stöffler||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||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 information 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.

|Andre Fischer||ABAP development in SAP Cloud Platform|
Get the latest Information about programming with ABAP in SAP Cloud Platform. With ABAP being part of SAP Cloud Platform new features are shipped on a bi-weekly basis, so stay tuned.
In my talk I will introduce the new ABAP RESTful Programming Model which is available in SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment and explain the new concepts such as behavior definition, behavior implementation, service Definition and service binding.
In my talk I will show you in several demos how to onboard , how to develop a simple transactional application and how to extend an existing scenario in SAP S/4HANA.

Sharing of good practices for live streaming Inside track events, and ideas how to expand the idea in the future
|Volker Stöffler||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.
|Database, SQL, IoT|
|Valentin Chernomaz||From UI- to Unit-Test in SAP ERP without Scripting|
In the SAP® ERP environment, you face challenges specific to SAP® when building automated tests.
In this talk, we share with you our experience in automating the testing of our RT.easy products and why we ultimately chose to develop our own TEST.easy solution.
We will talk about:
- Typical problems with test automation in the SAP environments
- Testing of customer enhancements and in-house developments
- Requirements for test tools
- Cost reduction
|Paul Hardy||All That You Know Is At An End|
The pace of change in the ABAP world has never been faster. The two seismic changes at the moment are abapGit and the RESTful ABAP Programming model.
I have been involved in both and will share with you all the non-secret things I can, to give you a glimpse into the Utopian future of ABAP programming.
Hitchhiker's Guide to SAP NetWeaver
|SAP goes Cloud, SAP Analytics Cloud, Cloud for Applications, IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, HaaS, etc, etc. Since several Years everyone talks about the digital transformation and the intelligent enterprise into the Cloud, but the most of our SAP Customers running their mission critical system still „on-premise“. With this Presentation we take a step back to give a glimpse of the SAP NetWeaver evolution, of course without kubernetics, containers, block chains, IoT but everything on the foundation for the countless ABAP Programmers. See also the wise and not so wise decision of the past 1 ½ decades in the SAP history of the SAP Application Platform with a twinkle in the eye.||SAP First Guidance|
|Q - the easy Installer of SAP IQ database||Creating a SAP IQ can be as easy as filling three values in a little HTML page. Since the acquisition of the Sybase company in 2013, the SAP Application Portfolio was enhanced with the most modern and reliable database, event streaming and replication technology at all time. Nevertheless, the implementation of the „real big data storage“ called IQ was never in the priority of the SAP automation efforts. With this Presentation you will see, how everyone can create a SAP IQ database based on the SAP Host Agent interface to support all kind of solutions like SAP-NLS, native IQ Big Data solutions, or hot/hot frozen concept for BW/4HANA||SAP First Guidance|

|Achim Toeper||One Recipe - These are the ingredients for a tasty CI/CD pipeline for SAP|
Many people think that #DevOps and #Agile do not work in SAP. We are convinced that this is no longer possible without it. The basics are explained using practical ingredients and examples are given of how to rethink one's own attitude (culture) and ask the right questions in order to approach the appropriate agile direction in the manner of an assessment. Then I show examples of how the ingredients work for an agile composition. For those who finally want to get on the agile path, I have recipes for a DevOps learning trip ready.

|Fred Verheul||First steps with the Cloud Application Programming Model|
We'll take a look at the new Cloud Application Programming Model that SAP introduced last year, and which should make it easier for developers to get started developing applications on SAP Cloud Platform CloudFoundry.
|Dr. Alexander Ziesemer||DSAG SAP Security Survey 2019 – what do the results tell us?||This session will present some results and the key insights gotten from the latest survey on SAP security that has been conducted by the DSAG by end of 2018 (DSAG: German-speaking SAP user group, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, is with more than sixty-thousand members one of the most influencing user group worldwide). In this survey, DSAG asked their members: Which topics in the SAP security domain are most important for SAP customers? Is assistance by SAP in these matters sufficient – and if not, what exactly is missing? What differences can be found compared to the survey from the year before, are there any trends to observe? What are the key messages from customers, including high-priority requirements for SAP products, software and services that can be inferred from the survey’s results? Finally we want to discuss whether some of the pain points highlighted have already been addressed or/and implemented in the last months and which top-most issues are still open.|
|Thomas Fiedler, Ingo Bräuninger||Copy/Paste & Quick fix your ABAP Code to the Cloud||The benefit of the ABAP environment in SAP Cloud Platform is that you can reuse existing ABAP Code in the Cloud. I will show you what you have to consider that your code is cloud-ready and how you can transfer the code to the cloud. There are well known friends involved in the talk like ADT, abapGit and ATC.|
|Juliana Hendel||SAP Activate: reasons to embrace the agile methodology||“ We often hear that SAP Activate is an agile methodology for SAP implementations, but many have their reservations about how agile it actually is. SAP Activate takes the best of both worlds, waterfall and agile approaches, while remaining agile at the core. This session discusses the main aspects of what makes SAP Activate a unique and effective approach to project implementation.”|
