Enterprise Integration is a bit challenging and the field is moving so fast that nobody is able to follow what is going on. That is what Integration Podcast covers.

We focus on the SAP Integration platforms from SAP PI/PO, SAP Cloud Integration, API Management, Gateway and Cloud Platform. There are so many different tools, on which you must be looking to understand what is relevant.

We also are cover the other techniques going on to make sure that your Enterprise works.

Daniel Graversen has worked with SAP Integration for 15+ years. Over the years, there have been several frustrations about how to make different software and tools work optimally for the customers.

Daniel is an SAP Mentor and a part of the community around SAP.

Daniel is both developing software for SAP Integration, blogging about integration and migration, training people in using the tools, and advising companies in getting the most out of their SAP Integration.

021 – IFG Integration day with program

A few months ago I shared a little about the IFG survey and the big event that we have planned for SAP Integration. A two day about what is happening with all SAP Integration. It is arranged by the Swedish SAP user group SAPSA taking place 5 to 6 November in Stockholm. In this episode I’m talking with Pontus Borgstrom Integration Architect at SKF and board member of SAPSA.

One of the reasons that I think it will be cool is there is quite a number of presentations from partners and SAP customers about their projects. I think this is where you will learn what is going on in the market and your pears is doing. SAP will also be presenting a lot of what they have been doing and their roadmaps. There will also be plenty of time for networking get to talk with fellow integration developer or architects to hear what they are doing.

There will also be some hands-on sessions (with some cloud systems) or demos that show something of what is going on with the integration.

It is an event focused on SAP Integration, so if you are interested in integration this is the event to go to.

You can register at the link below. If you are a part of your user group the price is just 100 EUR per day.

 

I do hope to see you there. I’ll be presenting some sessions on how to speed up your development sessions.

020 – Status of Enterprise Integration SAPPHIRENOW 2018 recap

The cool thing about SAPPHIRENOW, which is SAP’s biggest event focusing on the business value of  SAP software. From an integration standpoint, there was a lot of interesting perspectives. So I created a webinar where I was covering some of the big change happening and what I believed people should start considering when working with SAP Integration.

Integration is going to be a lot more complicated over the next period of time, so you need to figure out how to position your SAP PI/PO system vs the Cloud Integration system.

For SAP to be successful they must enable customers integration. So there was a big focus on integration. Some of the topics covered in this podcast are S4 Integration, API management, SAP Cloud Platform, Open Connector, SAP Cloud Integration, prepackaged content.

019 – IFG Integration day and survey

In this episode, I have Pontus Borgström how is Integration Architect at SKF and a part of Swedish User Group and the International Usergroup for Integration. In this episode, we will talk about the integration day and the IFG Integration survey. I think it is some interesting concepts so I’m thrilled to share them with you.  I’m also a part of the International Focus Group for Integration (IFG) and is helping out with the community.

Integration Day(s)

One of the goals is to expose integration experts and architects for different approaches for how integration is done. We normally don’t get out and get inspiration from other sources so it is seldom we try to organize everything self instead of learning from others. On the days you will be exposed to how other people approach integration and how to deal with it. There will be two days 5 and 6 of November 2018.

  1. Day one is a focus on hands-on sessions. Here you will be able to get an a little deeper understanding of some of the technologies. For some session, it will be possible to try it on your own system if you bring your laptop.
  2. Day two is a focus on more concepts a is the day where you will get some ideas about all the things happening in the world of SAP Integration. So a lot of Roadmap sessions.

We know that it is close to SAP Teched but the focus is more on what users are currently doing instead of the focus at Teched on the future products.

Figaf is a sponsor of the event because I think it is a good way to get people to learn from each other.

The price is from 100 EUR per day so it is really cheap.

You can view more about the agenda at the SAPSA site, and resister for it.

Integration Survey

One of IFGs other projects is the Survey on what users are doing. IT is used heavily by SAP to understand users and accept their decisions.

This year, the 10th annual survey contains 36 questions. It takes about 10 minutes to fill in.
