Following on from January's #SAPSysArchs call on SAP Gateway, the February call will be

about the complimentary subject of SAP Fiori & SAP Portal.

As before, the goal of the call is a peer architectural discussion on the subjects of SAP Fiori

and SAP Portal, what they are, how they fit together and the future the SAP Portal has in a

SAP Fiori world.

The call will open with a short ppt presentation introducing the subject of SAP Fiori and SAP

Portal, and subsequently, the floor will be opened for peer discussion on these subjects.

We are very lucky, as aviad.rivlin has very kindly

accepted to join the call and act as the authority on the subject.

The call will be a unique opportunity for peers from SAP Customers and SAP Partners to

understand, in the Fiori world where the Portal fits in, what SAP's plans are for the two to exist

harmoniously and why SAP Customers should continue to invest in their SAP Portals when

there is SAP Fiori.

As has been explained here previously, the point of the call is to discuss real SAP system

architecture challenges facing real people at real companies. The call is less a lecture and

more a discussion.

Please take the opportunity to think of interesting questions and challenges on the subject of

SAP Fiori and SAP Portal and feel welcomed to post the questions here in advance of the call

(in the chat under the blog) or bring the questions and challenges to the call. The benefit of

posting challenging SAP Fiori and SAP Portal architecture questions here in advance is for

challenging subjects it will give Aviad the chance to prepare and the other peers the chance

to give feedback on their thoughts ahead of the call.

The goal of the call as usual is to learn from peers through open common discussion and

solution sharing on contempory SAP system architecture challenges.

Looking forward to all feedback and attendance.

Let's have some fun and fully understand how Fiori and Portal fit together and why we should be

investing in our Portal strategy.

About #SAPSysArchs

Together we are all #SAPSysArchs, everybody in the SAP Business who is involved in SAP

System Architecture decisions.

A global peer group enabling sharing of discussions, questions, philosophies, throughts and


#SAPSysArchs face many challenges including pressure of having to be the subject matter

expert, the final internal technical authority, and without always having access to support.

Where is the documentation, there is not enough architecture documentation around SCN

or SMP, we're lucky if a Master Guide gives some architectural insight.

Architect's don't blog, why ? Often blogging architecture solutions, philosophies, ideas, could

risk sharing company's secrets combined with pride of not wishing to be publicly challenged.

What to do ? #SAPSysArchs creates a peer group where on a monthly basis peers can have

an open discussion on a contempary subject, and compare thoughts.

Less a lecture and more a discussion, there are mountains of documentation on SCN, SMP,

TechEd, the #SAPSysArchs calls are primarily an opportunity for open peer discussion, where

attendees bring their challenges and throughts.

Real challenges faced by real people at real companies, rather than PowerPoint Presentations.

Good architectural design and decisions bring many benefits including:

     . creating competitive advantage by

          . enabling End User productivity, enabling End Users to be productive and keeping them


          . reducing costs

          . reducing time

Every company is different, running at different speeds with different budgetary and business


What is the best architectural decision for one company, may not for a variety of reasons be the

best architectural decision for another.

However, enabling #SAPSysArchs to share and compare in peer discussions will benefit all.
