    client code changes You can only improve the quality of your work if you have access to hard and software at any point in time not just in a SAP training center In my mind this would be a much easier solution which could potentially feed into a different kind of certification approach for the future with help and ideas from mentors community Kind regards Michael Koch Posted in Blogosphere SAP Market 1 Comment An Entirely Virtual SAP TechEd Posted on February 9 2009 by Michael Koch image from Craig Cmehil s Rantings blog A tweet by Capgemini s solution architect Lee Provoost today got me thinking about the future and potential of SAP TechEd conferences how is SAP going to deal with the fact that lots of companies have now no travel policies for cost cutting Very aptly Lee pointed to the current economic climate which forced a lot of SAP customers to put a ban on traveling and expenses for conventions such as TechEd This will be a problem that SAP will have to address when planning and organising the next wave of TechEd conferences taking place later this year and beyond A while ago Chip Rodgers tweeted about the complications of figuring out the number of potential participants for TechEd given the current economic circumstances in this economy how do we estimate attendance TechEd attendances have been going from strength to strength in recent years and quite rightly so On my recent visit to TechEd Berlin in October 2008 I was very impressed with the level of organisation that goes into these events However and I sincerely hope otherwise 2009 and maybe 2010 could be tough years for SAP s main developer conference Essentially this got me thinking of ways out of this and thereby also making a move towards a greener way to cope with traveling as well as a smarter usage of energy The biggest virtual developer convention in the world OK brace yourselves What if SAP would create an entirely Virtual SAP TechEd conference Similar to the recent PKOM Partner Kick Off Meeting and also the Business Suite 7 launch would it not be a fantastic and mindblowing idea to entirely hold a big conference such as SAP TechEd in the virtual space A combined use of video and microblogging could give an event such as this the feel of true collaboration Granted the devil is in the detail here but there are only a few software companies on the planet that could pull this one off In my view SAP is one of them The benefits and opportunities for such an idea real savings for customers a truly green event bigger reach to even more developers and BPXers great extension to the current Virtual TechEd format real online collaboration target group for this already used to the web format Now I can hear some people shouting Bah Humbug already argueing that for example the organisational effort for an event such as this would be phenomenal Another one What about face to face meetings networking and collaboration Well maybe but would not tools such as Twitter to some degree prove these critics wrong There could potentially be small compromises For example similar to the break up of SAPphire EMEA into smaller more regional events TechEd could go an analogous route by hosting one small main event with speakers mentors and several satellite venues which would provide web video links to the main event yet still giving participants a face to face option to network and collaborate locally Now I can imagine that clever TechEd people such as Chip Rodgers Amir Blich Marylin Pratt or Craig Cmehil Second Life have already been hatching a Virtual TechEd Masterplan such as this or at least I hope they have Posted in Blogosphere Tagged SAP TechEd 1 Comment This Week in SAP 3 Posted on January 16 2009 by Michael Koch Interesting SAP related news links from the last 7 days SAP s worker s council wants job guarantee Achtung German english translation here albeit Leo Apotheker translated as pharmacist via rwang0 Isn t the worker s council trying to square the circle here Never SAP US boss Bill McDermott interview predicts a SaaS disillusionment A fairly misjudged and badly interpreted interview or as jonerp put it SaaS true believers portraying SAP as legacydinosaur SAP and SaaS SeekingAlpha s Jeffrey Kaplan sees SAP in denial I thought this article lacks real insight into what products such as BBD deliver Also what s wrong with being cautious about ERP in the cloud For instance the idea of SAP SaaS snap on s to work toegther with SAP ERP is a good one as it could ease customers into SaaS this week also saw the go live of the Enterprise Geeks website with interesting contributions from Craig Cmehil Dan McWeeney Ed Hermann Rich Heilman and Thomas Jung I ve certainly subscribed to their feed This doesn t come as a big surprise as SAP customers had to continue facing the music a survey by Panaya Inc showed that 75 of all SAP upgrade projects are still going ahead as planned some with lower budgets Main driver appears to be support cost avoidance SAP confirms it has won UN implementation project Might just be a drop in the ocean financially but bums on seats is always good PR This week s Twitter Picks jonerp As of January 1 2009 Business Objects is no longer Business Objects an SAP Company It is now SAP Business Objects Noted dahowlett When SAP asked me how I felt about eSOA last year I retorted something along the lines that I d rather have an anal probe by Rosa Klebb RajeevTrikha India s outsourcing revenue is 50B and Satyam s take was 2B But definitely the impact on India s reputation seems to be bigger than 4 rooreynolds Facebook is about people you used to know Twitter is about people you d like to know better

  • » Berlin here I come !
    a good opportunity for me to see all those sessions missed I ve been very critical about Virtual TechEd in the past but things move on simple as that I expect a lot of valuable information I remember sitting on the plane back from Vienna in 2005 with my head buzzing This time round it will probably be worse S ocial networking has changed the way how the SAP community communicates and a lot of the key people will be joining the party in Berlin So most of all I am excited about putting faces to names For example the ESME Enterprise Social Messaging Experiment project is going to be part of the Demo Jam Whenever time allows I try to keep up to speed with what s happening there and seeing it demoed in Berlin will surely be a treat They ve achieved so far in such short space of time I wonder what it will look like in October This entry was posted in Blogosphere and tagged Berlin SAP TechEd Bookmark the permalink Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email will not be published Name and Email fields are required Comment Name Email Website About me My name is Michael Koch SAP Solution Architect Mentor and SAP Press Author This is my company profile and site ABAP Development for SD book Pixelbase Electric Looking for my the blog musings about electric vehicles and transportation Follow this link to Pixelbase Electric Recent Posts Come and see me at SAP Insider Events in 2015 A double Logo SAP 2015 Trends for ABAPers a brief overview Archives Archives Select Month October 2015 November 2014 October 2014 April 2013 October 2012 September 2012 August 2012 May 2012 March 2012 November 2011 October 2011 September 2011 August 2011 March 2011 February 2011 January

  • » knowing me, knowing you (aha)
    compete for client business amongst themselves and contractors are simply too worried about finding the next job and are therefore happy to vagabond from one agent to another If anyone has a better answer why consultants can not have long term agents please let me know This entry was posted in Blogosphere SAP Market and tagged agents clients contractors freelance SAP Bookmark the permalink One thought on knowing me knowing you aha Permalink Jon Reed November 18 2008 at 6 14am Michael this post hit home to me because years ago when I was an SAP recruiter I stopped running my own desk many years ago now I fancied myself as trying to become such an agent for SAP folks I liked the idea of being a long term advisor to SAP professionals and you can see the advantages of working with a trusted advisor that you can turn to again and again especially since the SAP market does usually require a middle person Here is the problem I ran into It s basically impossible for one recruiter to represent the many opportunities an SAP professional needs access to Most SAP customers have their own vendor short list and you have to go through those vendors to get access to the project In some cases they will be willing to share their margin with an outside recruiter but in other times they will not I can recall situations where I willingly stepped out the loop in order for the consultant I was working with to get the rate they needed from their next project This preserved our long term relationship but did create some challenges because at that point I was providing advice and counsel for free Much of which I willingly did but what I found is that consultants understandably needed flexibility to choose their projects and in turn that created challenges on my end as a recruiter I wanted to be their agent in a sense but being left out of many deals was frustrating even though it was nobody s fault Artistic representation is different because in that culture it is understood that you CANNOT contract the artist directly you must go through the agent In turn the artist knows the agent will have access to all the opportunities in the market that they would want so there would never be a need to go around them and do a deal without the agent in order to stay employed Thus the perfect mutuality of that relationship is preserved So I really like your idea and it would be interesting to see it play out more like real agents in the SAP community as well But there are challenges to be overcome One thing I have seen is a more relaxed non exclusive form of this where a consultant has several agencies they know and trust But I think we re not yet at a point where an SAP person is ready to tell companies and or third

    have this option In fact in most cases the relationship that was built between recruiter and contractor ends when the contract is terminated Of course it might happen that your agent has another position he would like to put you forward for but during the last 5 years this has never happened to me This is where I envy people in the arts for example No not mainly because of the work they do you should see me act but because artists have ONE agent that they re dealing with usually on a long term basis This one agent handles all negotiations with potential clients This is the point I am trying to make here they build a relationship which actually works well for both of them in a good case The contractor gets an agent which gets to know him and his work better and better Thereby the agent can increase his ability to market the freelancer even better in the future Why is this not possible in the normal labour market Welcome to the real world of work This is the world in which for example clients are undecided about project staff decisions agents are trying to compete for client business amongst themselves and contractors are simply too worried about finding the next job and are therefore happy to vagabond from one agent to another If anyone has a better answer why consultants can not have long term agents please let me know Posted in Blogosphere SAP Market Tagged agents clients contractors freelance SAP 1 Comment About me My name is Michael Koch SAP Solution Architect Mentor and SAP Press Author This is my company profile and site ABAP Development for SD book Pixelbase Electric Looking for my the blog musings about electric vehicles and transportation Follow this
