October 13th through the 15th marks SAPTechEd 2009, SAP’s developer oriented conference located in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference goal is to enable SAP customers to get the most out of their current solutions, understand the company’s roadmap positioning, and gain valuable skills to be able to take back to their organizations.
Aside from several announcements, the drive behind SAPTechEd 2009 seems to be based on precipitating change. Today’s keynote with SAP CTO Vishal Sikka and inventor and author Ray Kurzweil discussed the societal and technical changes that are occurring and what will occur. Sikka discussed the concept and importance of content being independent of the way it is provided to customers with the importance being overall design, intent and optimization, and adaptation for customers. What this means is that because societal, economic, and technological advancements are so dynamic and constantly expanding, it becomes important to design, develop, and deploy software that supports these changes and provides customers with tools to collaborate and help drive additional change without limiting the way in which these solutions are delivered. Kurzweil supported this view by showing the growth of technology and lowering of overall costs of what is now available in the market.
