For some unknown reason, SAP is sponsoring me to attend their European gig, SAP SAPPHIRE 07 in Vienna from 14th to 16th of May 2007. I am no A-list blogger. In fact, since changing the URL, I have struggled to get into the top 200,000 of the world wide blogs tracked by Technorati.
So why did SAP invite me?
- Is this because Oracle was a partner of ebdex and SAP was not?
- Or is it because I registered on SAP enquiring about a possible partnership opportunity?
- Or is it because I am perhaps the only blogger ranting about e-invoicing, EIPP and document exchanges? There are few well known blogs on sourcing but not on my subject area, as far as I can figure out.
I am chuffed to join a pool of well known bloggers attending this event. Here is the list:
- Axel Angeli – The Mentors of the Service Oriented Architecture
- Craig Cmehil – Community Evangelist at SAP AG – Podcasting + live video
- Maggie Fox – Social Media Group
- James Governor – MonkChips
- Dennis Howlett – AccMan
- Thomas Otter – Vendorprisey
- Prashanth Rai – CIO Weblog
- Sigurd Rinde – Forthcoming
- David Terrar – Business Two Zero
- Charlie Wood – Moonwatcher
- Dale Vile – Freeform Dynamics Blog
- Manoj Ranaweera – Manoj Ranaweera EIPP Blog – oh that’s me!
Now, I must admit, I know Dennis Howlett and David Terrar very well and have met Sig once. Most of the others are new to me. These days, I do not get much time to visit other’s blogs let alone do blogging. I spent most of the time in Bourne End where Causeway Technologies is based at, and the Travel Inn I stays in has no access to the Internet. Nice excuse, hah!
I nicked following links from Craig’s blog. They should help you to track the event.
It will no doubt be a blast to attend this event. Will blog more once I had time to absorb the programme.
