Accepted to Present at SAP TechEd 2010

Categories: 2010 SAP TechEd Dave Rathbun @ 9:14 am

I got an email yesterday saying that one of my abstracts has been accepted for the 2010 edition of SAP TechEd. I will be talking about universe design over non-ERP data, showing the SAP folks that you can build universes on more than just cubes. :)

The selection process for the fall BusinessObjects conference in Orlando is continuing through July 2nd. I submitted several abstracts for that conference as well, including one on universe change management that will feature a (hopefully) completed version of a script to compare universes that I started writing years ago. I am using the script today (thus the abstract) but it’s far from completed, and certainly not ready for public consumption.

As a side note, the “Conferences” category on the right menu for my blog has continued to grow. I experimented with a couple of Wordpress plugins that would allow blog readers to expand / collapse the categories as needed, but so far neither of them have worked to my satisfaction. Either they didn’t work in all of the browsers I tested, or they looked bad, or they were not as functional as I would like. But hopefully I will get something there soon in order to avoid having that category take over the entire side of the screen.
