The New SAP UI

July 2, 2008

Intrigued by Goodness coming to Web Dynpro Abap near you. I was redirected to this presentation on blip

Web2.0 meets Business Process. Indeed!!

SAP Eventus – The Human Face of Business Scenarios was a Composition on Grails prototype, released to public late last year it demonstrated Enterprise 2.0 principles by highlighting a real life collaborative business process scenario.

The next iteration of Eventus utilizes much more of the SAP products we are familiar with and showcases the “signature design” of the new Business Client “Nova” debuted at SAPPHIRE this year. One thing is for sure with the new look prototype we have a contender for this years Demo Jam.

SAP never looked better – drop and drag widgets, drag and relate objects, google maps, enterprise and web searches, Flash/Flex/AIR, BSP, Webdynpro, SAP Gui and much more all seamlessly delivered in a single UI, I even saw Textpad in there somewhere, I can only imagine the services and events utilized behind the scenes.

Sign me up, where’s the project, I want to start imagining the possibilities.


looking through the glass door

What is it really like working for a big 4 consultancy?
“Do it for your resume and get out”
“OK, but a bit soul destroying.”
“Great place to launch a career, .. plan to build a strong network on day one.”

What would it be like working in Silicon valley?
“An Elitist’s Playground”
“Great just isn’t good enough.”
“a fantastic place to work.”

How do their salaries compare
Google – $US $113,000
Yahoo & Microsoft – $US 106,000
Apple – $US 89,000

Just a few of the comments and salary reviews employees have left on Glassdoor a new website allowing us to look through the window and see how green the grass is.

Specialist or Generalist

Generalist or Specialist?

This pic reminds me of my time in London cause it looks like the underground tube map. The bubble had just burst, the market was volatile, technology was fleeting and customers demanding. Do I get off at first stop and specialize in a technology that i like, running the risk of missing the needed connections. Or move on constantly reinvent and have to compete for a seat in the crowd.

Not much has changed – know everything about nothing or nothing about everything.

HP to consume EDS – bring it on

“More companies die of indigestion than starvation.”
(“The HP Way,” Hewlett-Packard co-founder David Packard, page 142)

Back in 2002 HP got heartburn from a Compaq takeover. EDS has over 135,000 staff – I hope they bought some Tums cause its a big fish to swallow.
