Welcome SAP folks to the official SAP Inside Track Vienna info page! 

After attending many successful SAP Inside Tracks in the past years, we decided it is time to host the first SAP Inside Track in Austria. Due to its central location and easy accessibility by plane, train, and car we chose Vienna as the conference city.

The main conference will be on Saturday, 24th November 2018. On Friday, 23rd November we will organize an SAP Code Jam for interested community geeks, where we will explore the features of SAP S/4HANA in detail during a hands-on-session. The Code Jam will be hosted by Ingo Bräuninger of SAP – an expert for everything in regard to S/4HANA.

Both, the Code Jam and the Inside track are a great opportunity to spend the weekend in a nice city with a great cultural heritage, to connect with your peers and friends, to make new friends, to gain new experience and insights, to listen to interesting talks, to give great talks, to fall in love with Vienna once and for all, and, and and…

The conference language will be English. You might want to check out some local German basics at Wienerisch für Anfänger (Viennese for beginners).

Ingo BräuningerCustom Code Migration to S/4HANA

One of the biggest challenges for our customers during the system conversion to S/4HANA (or Suite on HANA) on-premise is the custom code adaptation. These adaptations are necessary because of the simplifications (e.g. data model changes, removal of obsolete functionality, removal of redundant components) in S/4HANA compared to the classic ERP. To minimize the efforts for our customers to adapt their code the ABAP Platform provides tools to analyze custom code based on the so-called simplification database.


This toolset is crucial for the adoption of S/4HANA on-premise.






Werner KroissLeveraging the power of full text search in SAP GUI and SAP Fiori

Full text search technologies such as Elastic Search bring new possibilities for searching and analyzing data. Instead of manually querying multiple database tables using SQL, a full text search index may be queried. The power of the created search index goes beyond simple searching, as it may be used for powerful business analytics as well.

In this talk we show how to integrate Elastic Search with SAP ERP. We demonstrate how to build up an Elastic Search index with data from the SAP database. Furthermore, we show how the index may be queried using ABAP or JavaScript and how one may leverage the BI capabilities of Elastic Search.

Jörg SiebertSAP STARTUP - Experiences after 7 yearsI would like to share 10 milestones when founding a company in the SAP ecosystem. From idea to business plan, changing job , first steps with the new company, IT infrastructure, from prototype to production and adjusting the plan and company concept. This presentation is a restrospective of a matured startup and should give the audience inspiration what might happen when you found your own company. 



Tudor RiscutiaBuilding the RIGHT IT before you build IT RIGHT

SAP partners and customers alike embark on the journey to innovation. The investment in adopting and adapting to the newest technologies is high, but is it worth it?

Mastering the Fiori principles and building the most beautiful user interfaces is exciting, but is someone really using the applications?

Let's discuss how concepts like fail-fast and test-driven development can be applied before the actual implementation.
