  • » ABAP
    fish to fry Now some time down the line the code for this enhancement might become dated This can happen if syntax tooling or standards have improved But unless there is a pressing business reason to change the coding everything is kept as it is More than often there are good reasons for this Additional development overhead new developments upgrades and the ever popular regression testing are only a few things that spring to my mind A keen developer might look back at his code in anger but let s not forget that code stability is also important in business What if your code might be up to scratch with the latest release but fails to create the invoices it is intended to do Does it mean that ABAP development leads should not even for smaller enhancements preach things such as OO thinking reusability peer reviews and unit testing Far from it In times of shrinking budgets and shorter implementation times it is even more important to apply more design thinking improve your dev teams skills base and promote better team communication because that s what it often boils down to Posted in ABAP 1 Comment SAP from the Apple tree Posted on April 9 2010 by Michael Koch This post is predominantly for those people in the SAP development community who lament the news that Apple has decided that with iPhone OS 4 any 3rd party dev environments are kicked off the popular mobile platform If you re an accomplished iPhone developer who largely focussed on Adobe s Flash To iPhone compiler or tools such as MonoTouch both of which I do not know or have used by the way then I can actually understand your anger However if you are a developer who lives and breathes the SAP ecosystem and ABAP in particular then this whole epipsode must sound to you like a sequel of Back to the Future Apple s move aims to create a development platform which is dominated by the one and only language Apple who actually developed the platform s hardware sees fit Objective C Parallels to SAP s own proprietary language ABAP are not out of place here I ve recently dabbled a little with iPhone SDK and even though ABAP and Objective C are not very similar languages by and stretch of the imagination what they do have in common is that their respective inventors push these languages for reasons of stability a strength of both SAP s ABAP stack as well as the iPhone OS reliability and performance For years now SAP s ecosystem has been mainly hailed for its rigid design under the bonnet the bulletproof ness the stability At the end of the day vast numbers of global businesses rely on SAP s technology day in day out ABAP love it or loathe it plays a central part in that It also plays a central part in which future path for SAP to turn towards and innovate the core but that s another topic Maybe it s because I ve been using stable Macs for 15 years now and been part of SAP s ecosystem for many moons but why is it so hard to understand that Apple is trying to provide a stable and reliable platform for iPhone running on hardware Apple has developed itself I d wager that the same people who now complain about the locked down dev platform would also be the first who would complain about crashing iPhone apps had the device not been so tighly regulated Posted in ABAP Blogosphere 10 Comments an ABAPer s journey to Netweaver CE 2 Posted on June 22 2009 by Michael Koch Let me give you an update on my journey onto pastures greener that are the SAP Netweaver Composition Environment CE If you ve missed the first part of this series go go go and catch up now I find your lack of faith disturbing Darth Vader Star Wars Over the past 2 weeks I ve spent a lot of time in SAP s own Enterprise Services Workplace on SDN which is a pretty good resource to look through SAP s latest enterprise service offerings It s actually more than that it s THE place where you can find up to date info on documentation for services which you deem appropriate for consumption or exposure in your own landscapes On their SDN website the ESW is described as follows The ES Workplace is the central place to view consolidated information about all available Enterprise Services delivered by SAP Fair dos You can install an ES Repository yourself but chances are you re not always on the latest release so checking the ESW is always a good way to see what s around the corner Now you would think that the ESW gives you an easy overview of the services on offer describing to you exactly what each service does especially when you compare them to each other You would probably also think that the ESW gives you a nifty little search engine which enables you to sieve through the 2000 services and get what you want quickly Well things have definitely improved and especially the testing part of the service against SAP s own Discovery System ie an ECC app stack is much better now However much is still left to be desired as far as documentation search facilities and test harness is concerned Oh and while I m at it don t even think about opening up the ESW in browsers such as Firefox Safari or Opera It simply looks to me as if these services have been arranged in such a way so they fit well together with SAP s module documentation and education plans This doesn t always sit in line how other consultants look for services In contrast here is the way how I approach a service from a developer s perspective I know I want to create a sales order in

    that was used to display BYD screens during TechEd SAP chose a tradeshow like design in Silverlight that basically gave BYD a very SAP like look and feel In my view this is a wasted opportunity to create something new and fresh I remember that during SAPPHIRE a different fresher skin was used to show off the product Why such a boring skin was chosen is hard to understand especially if one keeps in mind that Silverlight is used as the UI weapon of choice here Summary In summary my first impression of the SDK was slightly positive The product seemed stable and ready The choice of scripting languages BODL and a reduced C dialect seems odd and might turn out to be a bad call in terms of community engagement a key ingredient when trying to create an online app store like experience for BYD Main reasoning here seems to be cloud app security and that s fine However I m convinced SAP will pull something smarter out of its hat in the future Whether it will hem add on developer uptake remains to be seen I also heard that SAP in the future plans to offer trial like versions of BYD SDK for non partners which would be an important and welcoming move Let s watch this space SAP has got to decide if and how to engage with a larger community I hope it chooses a route where developers are involved and entry barriers are low so the BYD app store can show a larger number of innovative add ons at a reasonable price I m looking forward to the presentation of a BYD app store later this year and can t wait to see the first add ons doing some BYD magic Posted in ByDesign TechEd 14 Comments Berlin what a difference 2 years can make Posted on October 10 2010 by Michael Koch This year s TechEd season is about to kick off and once again the EMEA venue is Berlin one of my favourite places Back in 2008 when I attended TechEd Berlin I saw Thomas Jung talking about Flash Islands ESME becoming a hot topic and Rich Internet applications were new and all the rage SDN Networking Day was a great success and I enjoyed mixing with some of my favourite bloggers and experts Little did I know that 2 years later I would return to the same place as a fully fledged SAP Mentor talking about the Certification 5 keen to learn more about BusinessByDesign SDK In Memory Databases Cloud SaaS On Device and ABAP on Eclipse SAP s last SAPPHIRE NOW has certainly cranked the tone and expectation up a few notches and I m hopeful to see more evidence on the path of change that the software giant from Walldorf is undertaking One new concept certainly is the Innovation Weekend which is taking place right at this moment in time It is yet another proof if there needed to be any that SAP is not shying away from trying out new approaches to community interaction and attempts to showcase innovation I m very much looking forward to the Certification 5 networking lounge session this Wednesday from 13 30 14 00 during which we want to take the opportunity to show what dedication and passion can achieve Martin Gillet and I will give a brief run down of our story so far talk about the interim results of our ongoing survey and also update the community on our ongoing fruitful dialogue with SAP Fellow C5 er Jon Reed has posted a magnificent summary post about all things C5 at Teched Another focus of mine will be the much awaited Business ByDesign Partner SDK SAP is entering new territory here and community interaction is key see also my previous post with regards to this I can t wait to be one of the first to run the SDK through its paces during the hands on workshop There s nothing more to say really than see you all in Berlin tomorrow Posted in TechEd 2 Comments day 3 at SAPPHIRE Posted on May 20 2010 by Michael Koch The third and last day of Sapphire Now in Frankfurt started for me with a round table with SAP CTO Vishal Sikka during which he emphasised several times that Netweaver was still SAP s supported platform and that it s staying It was good to have this confirmation as Jim Hagemann Snabe s keynote on Tuesday didn t mention the work Netweaver once Moreover Snabe talked about a future stack and SAP having talks with software vendors about it which initially brought a little confusion to the community Then there were of course the much anticipated keynotes from Sikka and Hasso Plattner A lot of what Vishal was talking about had already been touched upon at the round table earlier in the day On In Memory I think the community was suprised and even delighted to hear that support for the product goes all the way back to SAP 4 6c Vishal also talked about Project Gateway which seems to be a key to SAP s On Demand ambitions for the normal ERP world The next weeks and months will hopefully provide further clarification on Gateway Sikka also mentined an internal SAP challenge back in March 2010 to produce 500 mobile apps Up to Sapphire more than 600 have now been developed not all of these published though It would have been nice to see and hear more about this but I m expecting more on this soon Plattner s keynote was more of a dive into In Memory Database rounded off with a demo of In Memory Analytics within a little real world scenario Plattner delivered it in his usual off the cuff style which can be very entertaining It certainly demonstrated the power this sort of technology has especially its non disruptive nature Biggest take away for me on day 3 was Business

  • » SAP announces In-Memory App Roadmap
    during the Smart Meter Analysis demo was I think a real world customer repricing would be more complex and require specific parameters Now that interested customers are beginning to grasp the potential of in memory it becomes even more important to show the real world capability and use case of it Moreover it will also be important to mitigate the danger of existing Netweaver customers feeling left aside amidst all this high speed innovation It will be paramount for SAP to pick up those customers The fact that migration paths towards HANA for existing IBM and Oracle database customers will be offered later in 2011 is a very encouraging sign Walldorf has to walk a tightrope of traditional business and innovative technologies whilst being non disruptive Not an easy feat Process changes through In Memory Technology One aspect that deserves more exploration in my view are changes to work and business processes through in memory technology How immediate does In Memory need to be Especially freshly created transactional data like sales orders for example often undergo frequent changes after creation How reliable are decisions based on data such as this In addition what can users do to make data more stable and reliable Is there a potential for more intelligent software to guide this Agile Developments Dr Sikka promises Every SAP product will go through a transformation Since 2009 innovation has been extremely enforced at SAP and new methodologies such as Agile Development have been introduced The software concern is undergoing the biggest change in its history of almost 40 years and the speed of new developments is breathtaking Strategic Workforce Planning has been developed within 90 days for example Whether a concept of leaner simpler applications with faster time to market is the winning formula remains to be seen however early reactions seem to prove SAP right Vishal Sikka has plans for an ERP on HANA but does not make any promises or commit to timescales here From a sidecar to a limousine In the long run HANA is supposed to as announced in 2009 by SAP veteran Hasso Plattner replace the database for transactional data Up to now HANA works like a sidecar replicating transactional data This would be the final and biggest step in this evolution It would also open a door to SAP that has been regarded as tightly shut for years Regaining part of the enterprise database market share as most SAP customers use Oracle and IBM for their ERP database systems note the german version of this post below can be found on my Silicon de blog This entry was posted in Blogosphere SAP Market Bookmark the permalink 3 thoughts on SAP announces In Memory App Roadmap Permalink HANA and Watson the elevator pitch Pixelbase March 17 2011 at 9 10pm Key message of the day was the announcement of the roadmap for new In Memory Computing applications I will post a separate item on the event for now I d like to mention

    work for want me to produce examples of real work and value agents and end clients are not interested if I am certified in the next hot topic but without previous experience in it believe me I ve tried it certification courses and admission to TechEd except Bangalore are expensive for one man bands certifications are just a snap shot If you re CRM 3 0 certified what use is this for CRM2007 implementations re train every 1 2 years Actually as far as my first 2 points are concerned partners and SI s are in a similar situation because even if their consultants are certified in a particular new area or topic they still need that first hands on exciting project to implement it In my experience I have seen a lot of customers who have suffered from being bleeding edge being the first to use new technology in their area With regards to the value and depth of SAP certification in its current offering you said Come join us this year in Phoenix Vienna Bangalore or Shanghai get your hands on the technology via workshops hear from experts and sit for the exam soon afterwards If this means that a few workshops and seminars at TechEd are enough to sit and pass an exam that makes someone within up to 3 months a certified consultant than I feel more than confirmed in my doubts I also feel there is a get them while they re hot attitude which doesn t help to raise the profile of certifications What would be a far better idea is if SAP would improve the way how consultants can acquire skills themselves I mean beyond the current offerings especially for those without access to partner or customer systems Why not introduce a 1 consultant subscription scheme for BS7 or ECC6 sitting on top of the SDN subscription scheme for example Why Current offerings for SDN Subscriptions or by 3rd parties such as www sidmembers com don t reach far enough as these either a not offer the application stack or b can t offer cross 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 scratches on the Alloys Posted on January 19 2009 by Michael Koch After the re branding of Atlantic into Alloy we have now been given a launch date March 2009 So what can Alloy bring to IT departments developers and most importantly to Notes SAP users First of all it s going to create some work for IT departments on the Notes side as a minimum of Notes 8 02 server side is required
