Session Abstract:

The session will examine the implementation journey for Pregis Innovative Packaging, LLC to S/4 HANA. Pregis is a leading global provider of innovative protective packaging materials and systems. Pregis is headquartered in Chicago, IL and has fourteen (14) North American locations. The Pregis business evolved over the years, and their business processes had not been re-engineered to accommodate these changes – Pregis processes were silo’d in nature and are not integrated between functions. In several functional areas, knowledge of key processes resided in a few key individuals. There was a strong sense of organizational fatigue and frustration with the legacy processes and systems landscape. • Several “sub-systems” have been created over the years to accommodate business changes which has led to data duplication. To overcome these challenges Pregis selected S/4 HANA as a platform for future growth. Pregis successfully went live on S/4 HANA on January 2, 2016.

Webinar: The Power of the SAP HANA Platform -- Integrating non-SAP data with custom HANA applications

Fri, 10/16/2015

Abstract: 

SAP HANA is a real-time, in-memory database that enables organizations to process “big data” in support of transactional processing, operational reporting, advanced analytics and predictive modeling. With that said, SAP HANA has the potential to be much more than a database. In fact, SAP HANA as platform can serve as an agile, flexible application development framework. This game-changing capability empowers organizations to build advanced applications directly on SAP HANA, leveraging the SAP HANA Extended Application Service (XS). Many clients have integrated SAP ECC data into either a side car approach or a suite on HANA solution, but many of us still haven’t realized the power that can be harnessed for non-SAP Transactional systems.

During this webinar, we will show you how to extract data from your external source systems, using tools such as Data Integrator and SAP Landscape Transformer Replication Server (SLT) and load into the SAP HANA database. From there, we will explain how to leverage the SAP HANA XS Engine to add value to your business through agile development methods. We will show you development tools such as SAP HANA Studio and an introduction to the Web IDE. We will detail the benefits and best practices while demonstrating small portions within the SAP HANA Application Layer.

This webinar will be Part I, where we will introduce how to create the following application:

  • Deploy a basic SAPUI5 Page
  • Expose Shipment Tracking data via Odata services
  • Use an SAPUI5 table element to display the Shipment Data
  • Integrate Google Maps with the Shipment Tracker Information

This webinar will give you the baseline understanding on each of the components, and then it will allow you to follow up with our secondary videos to give you more step-by-step detail in the creation of the remaining application.

Fri, 02/27/2015
Atlanta, Georgia

Dickinson + Associates is proud to be the platinum sponsor at this event. Join us on February 27 for the keynote and breakout session:

Keynote

Where do you see yourself in five years? We ask this of ourselves and our employees all the time; why not ask it of our SAP experience? For the last decade, SAP has used the principles of Design Thinking to build out technologies to support organizations run by the mobile generation. Products like SAP Fiori, Screen Personas, the Mobile Platform and highly scalable products like Cloud for Customer have provided a unique opportunity to transition our companies away from SAP GUI and into a consumer grade experience.

This keynote will touch on new technologies while addressing a far more important topic: one that has the ability to make or break your transition from legacy SAP GUI to new UX. We will talk about the strategy behind the technology. What drove SAP in the direction they went, and how can you carry that vision in to the next decade? What is the most influential driver of business value when considering a new User Experience? What is the most important lesson we’ve learned from implementing these new technologies? Join us as we help prepare companies to run with the new SAP UX.

Breakout Session

Innovation and agility are common traits found in dynamic, growing organizations. Emerging industries such as Renewable Energy, Social Entrepreneurship, Digital Business and Predictive Marketing are driving innovation in the world economy and thus need a flexible software platform to meet their complex demands. In many cases, firms in emerging markets are developing homegrown, advanced applications required to support industry-specific business operations.

This session will outline the native application development capabilities inherent in the SAP HANA platform. We will discuss how SAP HANA can serve as single integrated development platform. We will review technologies such as HTML5, the SAP Extended Application Services (XS) Engine and OData Services integration with SAP HANA.

Wed, 11/12/2014
Online

SAP Screen Personas allow businesses to modify existing SAP screens to optimize processes and enhance end user experience.  The drag and drop interface means little, if any, development support is required to provide a simple and intuitive user experience to your team. 
 
“Simple” is the buzzword of the year, but what does that mean to your business?   If you had the tools to take a step back and remove process clutter, what would it mean to user acceptance?  What would that mean to productivity and profitability? 
 
Join us as we take a look at the real world possibilities of SAP Screen Personas.  In this 60 minute webinar we will look at the adoption path of Screen Personas from the beginning.  We will:

  1. Take a detailed look at SAP Screen Personas
  2. Outline system and hardware requirements
  3. Review sample project timelines
  4. Identify best practices in SAP Screen Personas adoption
  5. Demonstrate SAP Screen Personas in action
  6. Answer questions and discuss how this could change your SAP experience

SAP Screen Personas have been a game changer for many organizations.  Is it time for your business to experience the next generation of SAP UX?

Webinar: SAP Advanced Analytical Capabilities - Beyond Business Intelligence

Tue, 07/29/2014
Online

Business Intelligence, for many companies, has often meant structured operational and historical reporting. End users often complain about lack of flexibility, timeliness and their inability to turn data into actionable information. While this is still important and often critical to day-to-day operations, recent changes to the portfolio of SAP’s BusinessObjects suite of analytical and exploration tools has set SAP apart from the competition in many areas. The power of advanced analytics, made available as self-service to end users, opens up many opportunities to not only report on data, but also integrate meaningful information into business processes. Combined with SAP HANA, a real-time, in-memory database that enables organizations to process “big data” in support of transactional processing, operational reporting, advanced analytics and predictive modeling, the information available to your organization is even more valuable.
 
During this webinar, we briefly outline the suite of BusinessObjects reporting and analytics tools and then focus on the key capabilities of the advanced analytical toolset and how it can impact your business. Specifically, we discuss and demonstrate in more detail the capabilities and published roadmaps of SAP Lumira, Predictive Analysis and Infinite Insight (formerly known as KXEN). The webinar focuses on the value that advanced analytics can bring to your business and highlight examples of benefits and best practices already observed through deployment of these tools.

Webinar: SAP HANA Native Application Development

Wed, 07/16/2014
Online

SAP HANA is s a real-time, in-memory database that enables organizations to process “big data” in support of transactional processing, operational reporting, advanced analytics and predictive modeling.  With that said, SAP HANA has the potential to be much more than a database.  In fact, SAP HANA as platform can serve as an agile, flexible application development framework.  This game-changing capability empowers organizations to build advanced applications directly on SAP HANA, leveraging the SAP HANA Extended Application Service (XS).
 
During this webinar, Tim Korba and Eric Zenner will outline how the SAP HANA XS Engine can add value to your business through agile development methods.  Additionally, we will demonstrate how SAP HANA Studio is used to develop applications that can both read and write to your SAP HANA instance.  The webinar will specifically focus on how SAP HANA XS can provide personalization, page building and navigation.  We will detail the benefits and best practices and demonstrate the integrated SAP HANA application layer tools.
