Intro: This is a blog post series about all the SAP Community events I attend, specifically focusing on SAP BTP content, speakers, and sharing my experiences. By doing this, I want to let the community members in this region know the significance of attending these events and what they get out of it, especially an opportunity to learn about SAP BTP and a platform to share their BTP knowledge. Open this tag to check out this series.

The third installment of this series is about the latest Mega SAP Inside Track in Kolkata on 17th June 2023. This event was organized by moumitasaha.thedatatherapist(LN), Pradipto Kumar Saha, Sandeep Mukherjee, & SUBHASREE GHOSH with the support of many volunteers (check this post) and sponsors like IBM and others. Needless to say, this was another successful SAP Inside Track event in India with around 600 sap community members attending 28+ sessions.




There are a total of 4 tracks with two focusing on technical and 7 sessions focussing on SAP BTP. Check out the full agenda at this link: Agenda

SAP BTP Sessions at SAP Inside Track Kolkata


I will now highlight some of the SAP BTP sessions and share some useful links. Let’s get SAP BTP Started.



SAP BTP Overview



One of the first sessions in the events on BTP is from me, where I covered about the overview of SAP BTP and its strategy. I explained about the 3 important points, 1. Why SAP BTP is important? 2. What does it offer? and 3. How one can get started. I covered all these and touched on the 5 pillars of SAP BTP: Application Development, Automation, Integration, Data & Analytics, and AI. If you feel like you have missed this session, then don’t worry ;), check the youtube video which covers the overview of SAP BTP.
