Back in September I posted a blog explaining that Itelligence had been asked to present at this year’s SAP TechEd event in Las Vegas.
I delivered the session titled SAP Lumira – Tips, Tricks, and Community Experiences from the Real World on Tues 21/10. The room was packed with approximately 150 attendees and I have been told that it was the best attended session in the whole community stream of sessions.
In the presentation I shared a number of real life use cases from itelligence and from the wider SAP community plus feedback, challenges and opportunities for the SAP Lumira technology. If you have never heard of SAP Lumira before it is a fast-moving data visualization tool that connects to SAP and non-SAP data and allows data manipulation, visualization, and sharing.
As a presenter it is always great to receive feedback, irrespective if it is good or bad, so I was really encouraged when two separate people approached me directly.
The first was at a SCN community evening event where for fun attendees were given data sets by Medicines Sans Frontiers (Doctors without Borders) and they used SAP Lumira to try and answer some real world questions proposed by MSF (For more information on MSF and SAP community commitment to them have a look here). During the session a gentlemen strode right over whilst I was “geeking out” and thanked me for the session earlier in the day and said “It was the best session he’d attended all day”. If that wasn’t a great way to finish off a day at SAP TechEd it just got better as the combined itelligence, EVTechnologies and SAP Hana Cloud team came 2nd overall in the light hearted competition.
The second one, was on the early morning (06:00) Sap Community Network 5K Fun Run, where someone ran up to me and said “Hey, I was in your session yesterday, it was great” before I could reply he sped off and left me for dust!
If the session on SAP Lumira is of interest to you I will be replaying it at the UK&I SAP Usergroup Conference in November. Itelligence are sponsoring the event so why not come along and see us there.
