Special Guests

We are honoured to have some key SAP Community Network senior executives as special guests at SAP Inside Track Sydney this year. Mark Yolton, SVP of SAP Communities & Social Media, and Chip Rodgers, VP and COO of SAP Community Network & Ecosystem Events, will be in Sydney for Inside Track and Mastering SAP Technologies. Both Mark and Chip are very excited to meet as many of the Australian and New Zealand members of the SAP Community Network as possible during their visit. With the recent launch of the new SCN platform they are keen to hear our feedback and take back any ideas we have for improvement. They are also very keen to hear from us our thoughts about the growth and future of SCN.

And as a special treat we will also have the pleasure of the company of the enterprise software curmudgeon himself - Dennis Howlett. Dennis is especially keen to engage with independent developers and ISVs. He is keen to hear what you want and need from SAP to help you add value to the SAP ecosystem. 10 minutes with Dennis is unforgettable - several hours could be extreme overload. ;)

Your session contribution

Your session contribution is at the core of SAP Inside Track. So if you think about hosting a session, please let us know by submitting your session idea to the wiki page or emailing to Graham Robinson.

It doesn't have to be a well prepared classroom-style PowerPoint presentation. In fact we would prefer it if it is a more open, improvised and collaborative discussion session to draw out the ideas and experiences of others. We usually collect all submissions and then run the ones that the audience show a preference for on the day.


BOF Topic





Share experiences, opinions and knowledge on mobile enablement options for SAP.  Particularly welcome early adopters of SUP / Gateway and to hear their experiences with these.  What alternatives are being used or considered?  What real-life challenges are being experienced in the field?  What are the experiences of implementers with mobile device management solutions such as Afaria?  Here is an opportunity to take a barometer to SAP mobility implementations and strategies in the local region.

At the time of writing (December 2011) I have just started a HANA implementation.  The application is the subject of a presentation during MasteringSAP itself, but if anyone wants to listen, I'm willing to talk about implementation and support (i.e. the BASIS side of things).
