It was CeBIT in Hannover, Germany last week, and I participated on a panel talking about “Game Changers in Today’s Business”, including Jake Klein the project lead for SAP HANA (“High-Performance Analytic Appliance”). We discussed future trends in analytics, the new release of SAP BusinessObjects BI and EIM 4.0.
Much of the discussion was about whether SAP’s customers are buying into the vision, and if SAP was communicating its vision in the right way. You can watch the replay here: SAP Press Roundtable “Game Changers in Today’s Business”at CeBIT 2011.
I also very much enjoyed the evening “influencer” event, with great discussions with folks like Wolfgang Martin of Wolfgang Martin Team, Thomas Otter (@Vendorprisy) of Gartner, and Oliver Bussmann (@sapcio), a great IT leader and passionate believer in the power of social media and mobile devices.
