 Welcome to the first SAP Inside Track Ribeirão Preto

We want to create an opportunity for the SAP community to exchange knowledge about the newest technologies and trends that are taking place in the digital world.

Ribeirão Preto, a city that is also known as "The Brazilian California" (probably due to its approximate 300 sunny days a year) has in its region a network of SAP clients, partners, consultants, and developers interested in updating and sharing their experiences using and implementing these new trends and technologies.

Additionally, Ribeirão Preto is home to several universities, which gives the city and region the potential to increase the supply of education and technology-enabled professionals.

It's also important to mention that the city has a growing entrepreneurial scenario, with the presence of startup accelerators and incubators.

 First Personas Day – Mobile Edition – Hands-on!

We are also announcing the first Personas Day in Brazil, which will take place on Friday, March 23rd. Personas Day will be a full day dedicated to getting to know the latest version of SAP Screen Personas through hands-on exercises to build a real business scenario.

We will begin with a brief introduction to the topic of UX (User eXperience) and then we will understand in practice the role of Screen Personas as an SAP powerful tool to adapt, simplify and even merge any ECC or S / 4HANA transactions, whether they are standard transactions or not.

We are going to build a scenario together using SAP Screen Personas and see why this is the easiest and fastest way to do it. You will understand why Screen Personas is the best tool for changing, simplifying and customizing screens in many scenarios, even when compared to ABAP or SAPUI5 (Fiori) development.

The greatest highlight of the recently announced version of SAP Screen Personas is that it now also makes it possible to run transactions on mobile devices (tablets, cell phones, etc) and this is one of the features we will explore in the hands-on exercises this day.


Get ready, bring your notebook, tablet or smartphone and come on and learn by doing, together with the SAP Community!

Agile Development in the SAP world

Developing software is difficult and risky, it can result in high costs, overdue schedules, low quality and even project cancellation for non-viability. More flexible and less bureaucratic, Agile Development is a new approach to software development.

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development of 2001, marked the beginning of agile practices and became the basis for improving existing practices, techniques, and frameworks.

It proposes: individuals and interactions rather than processes and tools; running software rather than comprehensive documentation; customer collaboration rather than contract negotiation and quick responses rather than following a plan.

We will discuss:

1 - Turning the Technical Leader into a Scrum Master

2 - Use agile methods even in waterfall projects (Hybrid models)

3 - Vision of SAP projects nowadays (Culture, Problems, Advancements)

4 - Benefits from micromanagement (VSTS and Scrum ceremonies)

5 - Change of Culture for Agile

    Evening Event

In many events SAP Inside Track there is already a tradition to hold evening meetings for networking amongst all the participants. This is a tradition we do not want to break!

If you have been in Ribeirão Preto you know that it is one of the best cities to have some nice craft beer in Brazil, because there are a lot of breweries that are worth a visit.

Please remember that in the evening events each one will be responsible for its own bill/costs.


To celebrate in the typical Ribeirao Preto tradition, we are proposing to meet in a local famous beer house, Pinguim! We plan to meet at 6pm at Pinguim Ribeirao Shopping.



We will get people together to enjoy a little more network and conversations on a local pub at the same shopping mall where the event will be held.
