We are delighted to secure two highly experienced SAP professionals for the next Knowledge Share Group on Thursday, June 1st, 2017. Both Jocelyn Dart and Alex Aitken will be presenting to the group and offering their knowledge and insight in the usual discussion format that has made the Knowledge Share Group so popular within the SAP community.
I recently caught up with both (hence the selfies) to get a taste for what they will be covering at the event.
Who is Jocelyn Dart?
Jocelyn is a Solution Architect for User Experience at S/4HANA Regional Implementation Group – APJ Region at SAP Asia. Jocelyn has assisted over 80 organisations in the last 20+ years to make their vision a reality. As a SAP Mentor and User Experience Strategist, Jocelyn guides customers in renewing UX across their SAP solutions including Cloud, On-Premise, and Hybrid landscapes; and S/4HANA, Business Suite on HANA, and AnyDB (ECC, CRM, SRM, etc.) databases. Jocelyn feels that no customer is too big or too small for great user experience and great user experience starts with knowing your people.
Why Did We Ask Jocelyn To Present To The Group?
So far in 2017, Jocelyn has supported SAP customers in China, Korea, Taiwan, India and Belarus, therefore, her knowledge is vast across a diverse range of organisations. Jocelyn is very active within the SAP community speaking at Sapphire, TechEd, SAUG and Mastering SAP.
What Is Jocelyn Presenting?
Presentation title: Moving from Fiori 1.0 to 2.0 – What You Need To Know
Jocelyn is going to cover the transition to 2.0, the key differences between 1.0 and 2.0 as well as also explain how you get there, what the pre-requisites are, the considerations worth thinking about and the scaling required for UX.
Jocelyn explained “the move from step 1 to step 2 is a lot more strategic, you need to think about the strategy around design and development as well as consider potential HANA transition. For example, what does HANA give you over and above 2.0”?
Fiori 2.0 offers more complex use cases, efficiencies, as well as in-built wizards that allow a business to scale faster. These new capabilities are driving further innovation, and Jocelyn is going to enlighten the group on some great examples of where companies have fully committed to SAP Fiori 2.0
Who is Alex Aitken?
Alex has been working with SAP as part of the ecosystem, off and on, since joining an R/3 implementation as a Sales and Distribution BA back in the UK in the late ‘90s. After moving between projects, systems and business roles, Alex emigrated to Australia and ended up working for a large energy company, finding himself once again on an SAP project. Since then Alex has joined SAP Australia and is now Service and Support Partner, Digital Business Services and NSW Public Sector.
Why Did We Ask Alex To Present To The Group?
Alex is one of only two Service and Support Partners at SAP Australia, therefore, he can offer some real world examples and experience that the group can take home to further understand their personal understanding of how to better partner with such a vast organisation as SAP.
What is Alex Presenting?
Presentation title: How To Get Things Done In SAP
Working with a number of Government organisations, my role is primarily threefold; ensuring SAP delivers in all engagements, supporting the customer in navigating the SAP organisation and bridging the gap between Sales and Delivery.
I’m excited about discussing “getting things done with SAP”. I will be looking beyond the chequebook at how customer engagement should be brought to life. Also, the importance of structured governance, what services you can draw down from and which levers you can pull to make things happen.
