So there have been some questions regarding SAP InnoJam and what to expect from technologies, processes, etc this year.

Well first if you've been before you'll find the format is very much the same as before with some modifications based on your feedback.

Technologies in our "TechFire" will be SAP HANA Cloud Platform, SAP JAM, SAP HANA, SAP Lumira and of course IoT solutions with SAP. We will also have some partners sharing some tech and technology as well such as Intel and Synerscope!

SAP HANA Cloud Platform

SAP HANA Cloud Platform powers applications that deliver real-time insights to drive more effective and timely decision making. Dramatically accelerate analytics, business processes, sentiment data processing, and predictive capabilities to run your business in real-time.


SAP HANA converges database and application platform capabilities in-memory to transform transactions, analytics, text analysis, predictive and spatial processing so businesses can operate in real-time.

SAP Lumira

Quickly build beautiful visualizations with just a few clicks. Combine data sources and get the big picture and granular details together. Visualize large volumes of data without having to sacrifice performance. Maximize data knowledge and drive immediate outcomes.

Deliver agile data discovery across your enterprise with trust and scale. Leverage any data – big and small. Govern and administer data, visualizations, and users by leveraging your existing analytics infrastructure. Securely scale data discovery to your entire organization, today.


SAP Jam provides intuitive and powerful tools for social collaboration to help you drive results wherever you work. With it, you can add structure to conversations and work to quickly drive action, make decisions, or solve business critical problems. It enables you to drive and track the offline work that occurs when exceptions arise or teamwork is required to attack business-critical issues. You can work with customers, partners, and employees directly in your social collaboration environment, in your business applications, or while mobile.  SAP Jam does all of this while also enabling IT to protect key corporate data, avoid social silos, and deliver social collaboration across an entire technology landscape.


Since the topic is Internet of Things for the Agricultural Industry, Teams will have to deal with structured and unstructured Data, which they will not only try to use but initially need to get a feel for how to make sense of the data. In addition, SynerScope's Solution allows the fast consumption of different data layers i.e. Comparing publicly available weather data with correlating growth of crops and usage of different methods of cultivating the land. And this without a lot of programming.

We'll also have experts on site helping and showing how to connect things like a Raspberry PI or Littlebits together and then bringing sensor data to SAP systems!

And of course we will also have Design Thinking and other activities involved. In fact I'm excited to announce that we have a very awesome Design Thinking and SAP Mentor coach joining us in both locations to help explain the benefit of DT and the value it can bring to your project! She'll also be on site in both locations to help each team navigate the processes and help you on your way!

Meet julia.dorbic2, a Design Thinking expert having traveled the world helping companies implement the methodologies. I've had the pleasure of seeing her present all over in the US, Europe and as far away as India so we know that everyone will be in the best hands for Design Thinking! (side note: Julia does not work for SAP, but has taught many inside of SAP around the world)

We are so excited to have Julia join us in Palo Alto and in Berlin!

Now Berlin is completely sold out but there is still time to join us in Palo Alto - registrations are filling up with folks flying in from all over (as far away as Australia) and locals coming from all over the Bay area so don't miss your chance!
