Steve Lucas

No. STEVE LUCAS!

In between kitten cuddles, a part time job at The GAP, and sending questionable Snapchat pics to Jaime, Steve Lucas was kind enough to take a few minutes out of his hiatus to talk about life after SAP, the road ahead, and Troy Aikman’s giant hands. We don’t know precisely where he’s going, but we can only hope it really will be in our back yard still. Thanks for everything, Steve.

Revisiting the Realtime Data Platform

Josh, Derek Loranca, Greg Myers, and Clint Vosloo revisit the Realtime Data Platform concept and deep dive into progress on product convergence, what’s left for SAP to tackle and what we see are areas that customers should know more about.

SAP HODGEPODGE

If we could have named this episode appropriately, we sure would have. Today, we talk about topics ranging from ASUG SABOC to SAP Lumira to the lifespan of BI4.1.  Derek Loranca joins Diversified Semantic Layer regulars Josh Fletcher, Greg Myers, Jamie Oswald, and me. And, my dog really ate my podcast.

Run Simple

SAP has recently published a new statement of direction as it pertains to the SAP BusinessObjects suite, following Bill McDermott’s vision for a Run Simple approach to building technology at SAP.  We break that down a bit for the SAP BOBJ community.
