Why I changed the jonerp newsfeed, and what that means for content curation

Some time ago, I published a piece on JonERP.com riffing on the power of pull, which was inspired by the book of the same name, but geared towards individuals rather than the corporate focus of the book. It was my tribute to listening and context in a world where most of us are in relentless broadcast mode, in a desperate bid for our slice of attention amidst a media pie that is getting more crowded by the day.  Believing that our friends will surface everything we need to read is naive and lazy. I went into a further rant on this topic in my blog post, "Twitter is not a content meritocracy." Though the "Power of Pull" was not about pimping tools, I did say that Google Reader was the ideal tool for those who want to get a leg up by pulling the best content into one location.

SAP Mobility Video Podcast - Summer Roundup + TechEd Questions

Mobility is one of the key areas SAP is banking its future on, with 100 million Euros set as a revenue goal for 2011 as a combination of mobility, HANA, and on-demand revenues. But the growth opportunities SAP anticipates in mobility bring organizational challenges as well. With HANA stealing most of the Sapphire Now headlines, important mobilty questions lingered after the event. To get to the bottom of those, I taped a three way video podcast with fellow SAP Mentors John Appleby and Kevin Benedict. During this 40 minute video spiced with a bit of sassiness, we hashed out the burning SAP mobility questions and also discussed what SAP needs to pull off in TechEd season for it to be deemed a success from a mobility perspective.

Video Blog: SAPPHIRE NOW 2011 - The Unfiltered Preview with John Appleby of Bluefin Solutions

Sapphire Now 2011 looms as one of SAP’s most important conferences in years  What better way to preview the action than with UK-based John Appleby of Bluefin Solutions, in his home office, Sybase mug in hand? John agreed to walk the plank for my first-ever Skype video taping with a new piece of software that places our profiles side by side. This is a format my video partner Dennis Howlett and I use on our newly-launched JD-OD.com "on-demand video commentary" site. The video you are about to see here is the second shoot of the day. The sound quality was solid, the video quality pretty decent with the exception of my video angle which blipped in and out a few times. In this post, you can check out the video OR download an optimized audio file. The 30 minute video starts with some Sting jokes and banter before covering burning questions pertaining to HANA, mobility, BI 4, and on-demand (in that order). Scroll down for viewing/listening options and some time stamps.

What is the SAP Career Path for Basis Administrators - NetWeaver Engineers? New Videos

It’s been an exciting time for SAP career content at JonERP.com. This week, I announced my SAP Career Outlook 2010 series I wrote for the Career Center at SAP Community Network. These two white papers are probably the most important thing I have written about SAP careers this in a decade, so I encourage you to check them out (they are up on SCN also).

One of the problems with writing SAP career content is that "one size does not fit all." Each SAP career path needs to be fleshed out. Sometimes the best way to do that is through a collaboration with another expert. Enter SAP Mentor Tony de Thomasis of the Australia Post. Tony saw my two part video series on "SAP Career Planning" I had posted on SCN - videos that capture some of the themes of the white paper series. Tony then took those videos a step further with a fabulous Prezi on the career path for Basis-NetWeaver pros. I then raised the stakes of collaboration again, by taping four commentary tracks through Tony’s Prezi slides. You can see these in this blog post.

"Jon, you are definitely spot on with your analysis of the SAP market. I've been using your websites for over five years now. Instead of buying all the SAP books, I use your stuff to catch up with what's new in the ever-increasing SAP market." - Mark

JonERP.com Reader Feedback

"I've kept up with your JonERP.com site for a long time and your articles via SearchSAP.com and elsewhere. I just realized a few months ago that you were also the author of the first SAP Consulting book that I read when I decided to take the leap from working at a Utility company to becoming an SAP Consultant. The SAP Consultant Handbook is a staple for any SAP consultant, new or experienced. I just wanted to thank you for the quality work."
