Globalization of SMEs: a great opportunity or too high a risk? – Leading experts reveal their strategy


Increasing globalization presents SMEs with new challenges. National markets are converging together ever more closely, the Internet is almost a “new continent”. It is considered to be one of the most important future markets. Managers of SMEs will have to think about the question of what values, what conditions and what strategies are needed by both themselves and their companies in order to develop and succeed internationally.

At the Management Forum “The Globalization of SMEs” on September, 30th 2014 from 12:00 clock in the itelligence AG Conference Centre, there is an opportunity to hear high-profile experts on this subject and to discuss it with them.

Dr. Reinhold Festge, VDMA President, Haver & Boecker, Eva Kienle, KWS Saat and Jürgen Thoma, Testo will all explain details of their strategies and concepts and their experiences of a successful strategy in the face of globalization.

The new itelligence UK blog – BI, HANA, Data Governance, and personal insights


A couple of months ago Andy Steer – CTO & CMO at itelligence UK – and his team launched the itelligence UK blog.
Although it first saw the light of day on May 22nd (which is not too long-term for a blog) it already offers several insights into global topics from a UK specific point of view.

One example: If you read Reworking Florence Nightingales “Diagram of the Causes of Mortality in the Army in the East” with SAP Lumira by Andrew Fox (SAP Analytics Evangelist, itelligence UK), you will be able to better understand SAP Lumira its approach to Data Visualisation. Read more…

Future Perfect – tales from the future – predictive analysis


In German-speaking countries, we can say “It will have been” because we have the Future Perfect tense. It appears that others envy us this possibility. In order to use the Future Perfect, you must think you know what is going to happen and you have to imagine what you would see looking back in time on the events for which the future has become the past. Who would want something like this? Probably only someone who would prefer already to have lived through what he has before him. Probably the Future Perfect was invented shortly before a visit to the dentist.


Of course it’s natural to want to do something today that will make the future to-be a better place. When IT helps figure this out a little, it’s called business intelligence.

For a Safe Journey: Rights and Obligations in Outsourcing


One of the most important issues to take into consideration when planning a trip is safety – and it’s just the same with SAP hosting. Legal security and compliance, like the relationship between the customer and the IT service provider, are governed by contracts.

In this Blogpost, I want to once again go through — in some detail — what is necessary and what makes sense in these contracts, in order to create good legal framework conditions for successful SAP hosting.

Making Tough Choices – Which Outsourcing Option is Best for YOU?


When it comes to travel there are a lot of choices involved, special offers for every taste. The options are almost endless, whether with a self-planned trip or one of the countless package tours. That’s how it is, too, with SAP outsourcing: based on the customer’s wishes and needs, an appropriate outsourcing solution can be put together for any company.

A very important element is the choice of a travel agent…or in this particular case, a hosting partner. In addition to good preparation and planning, this partner needs to be in a position to offer you high-quality service and certified SAP expertise for your project. For long-term, productive and successful cooperation, good consulting and the personality of the service provider are also crucially important.
Although each hosting trip is unique, there are some fundamental offerings which are designed for various preferences and goals:

Development Knowledge – Part 1: ABAP Performance Tuning

It’s all in the title: the small addition of “Part 1″ to the title of my first blog post tells you everything you need to know about my plan, which I intend to take forward in future itelligence blogs together with the development team here. Before this, I would like to talk a little bit about the past in this company. We have gathered a lot of expert knowledge about programming with ABAP Objects in the 25+ years of this company’s existence. Meanwhile, I personally have worked for intelligence for more than 16 years. During this time, thousands of requests from various customers have landed on my desk and the desks of my colleagues in the development departments.

Of course there are many enquiries which are variations on the same theme thrown at us by different customers. A smart person is one who holds the answers to them in a database. Fortunately, we soon decided to do just that :).

And that leads me to my actual topic for this blog post: Performance Tuning in ABAP. This is a customer request which can easily be put into the category of “Frequently Asked Questions”. Read more…
