Saturday 25th April 2020

SAP Inside Track Düsseldorf 2020 postponed!

Dear sitDUS friends,

The current situation regarding COVID-19 in Germany (especially North Rhine-Westphalia as area with case numbers) is affecting our planning for sitDUS 2020.

We will not completely cancel it! We are planning a new event date for later this year.

Stay tuned - we will inform you asap about details.

We invite you to our first Tech. SAP Inside Track in Düsseldorf.

This event is planned as a technical topic driven event (call it tech-sit).

Idea behind

There are more developers active in the community than technical geeks. This results often in topics which were more based on use cases how technologies can be used and not how you implement, operate and scale them. We want to give this guys also a platform for their topics. For sure this event is open minded and also developers are welcome to give them insights on the platforms which they are consuming (wink)

But the main focus will be on topics like architecture, HANA deep dives, Cloud and other challenging technologies.


Saturday, April 25th 2020       
Registration opens at 09:00
Sessions start at about 10:30  and ends at approx.  18:00/19:00

Saturday we will have some drinks at the event location and if you like to join we will also go for dinner afterwards.

This is a great opportunity to spend the weekend in this wonderful city. Like at other SAP Inside Track events, you will be able to connect with your peers, learn from each other, share experiences and be inspired by great open minded discussions.

Session suggestions (Call for Papers)

Here YOU have the chance to add value and pay forward: host a session at SAP Inside Track in Düsseldorf. 
Share your experience and/or initiate a technical discussion and take new insights back home. Please note that all sessions are supposed to last at most 30-45 minutes! If your session is shorter, you don't need to blow it up, please feel free to add it. If your session will need some more time, add your session and mention it. We will figure out if and how we can handle it. 

  Please plan some time for questions and answers - or even asking the audience for feedback and ideas. The "  In  " of  IN side Track comes from  IN teraction  (wink)  

Here are a few examples to stimulate your imagination and inspiration:
  • Cloud architecture

Please be detailed! Give us (organisers AND the participants) the chance to know what you are planning. (Content wise and structure)

Add a "retake" at the end in case your session was already presented at another event.
(The effort to build a session is high and the limited number of participants at a SIT - therefore suggesting a session that was held before is very valid. Others do get the chance to hear what you are sharing) 
Mentioning the retake helps participants to choose from.

Why and How Data Intelligence 3.0 aka SAP DataHub 2.7
SAP Data Hub allows the automated and reliable data processing across the entire data landscape within the company. With the Availability of the Version 3.0 the name is changed to Data Intelligence as well as the Cloud based Version. In this Session you will see an e2e approach from the Setup of the AKS Cluster on Azure and how
a containerized application like the SAP DataHub works. Furthermore in conjunction to the Implementation Service the topics like the Maintenance Planer and the SLC Installation Bridge as the recommended approach if SAP Data Hub Foundation/Data Intelligence is to be operated as part of an SAP system landscape. Once the Service is available provide the source and target systems to connect the dots and start building the pipelines and creating the graphs

Any tips to take into account? 

  • Dress casual, it's a community event - not a business event and it is Saturday(wink)
  • If you register yourself, please show up at the event. Otherwise we will really miss you - and someone who was just on the waiting list will be very sad.
    If anything crosses your plans.. please cancel your registration!
    It helps us to fill up the list with people from the waiting list.
    We were happy to have a nearly 100% percent show-up rate at the last events and many happy faces. Let's repeat that! 
  • More tips from your side as a participant? Please list them, contact us and help making it a day to remember!
