In what has become an annual tradition, Jon and Dick Hirsch took over an abandoned room prior to Dick's plane flight to do the long-form/relaxed review of Sapphire Now/ASUG. Dick shares his cloud and S/4 HANA learnings, and both guys give a behind the scenes view of the challenges SAP is facing and what customers were saying. Keynote reviews are also included. Not covered in the podcast: Dick's daughter is VERY mad at him for missing the Jennifer Lopez concert!

In the "director's cut" edition of Jon's live Mobile World Congress wrap with diginomica colleague Derek du Preez, the guys review the MWC frenzy from an enterprisey point of view, and then review SAP's IoT strategy before moving on to a general talk on digital media disruptions, the state of reporting, and a bit on diginomica's own goals.

Is the show taking on a new level of enterprise relevance? Derek also shares his Internet of Things show research, and how he approaches this show from an enterprise journalists' perspective - not any easy thing to do, given the amount of media babble about the latest smart phones.

After day two of Everett McKay's UX Design Essentials course in Atlanta, Jon sat down live with Everett to find out how a developer like himself transformed into a UX instructor - and why UX matters. In this sixteen minute chat, the guys also talk about why intuitive design is a useless cliche (but not a useless concept), why all software has a personality, and why design concepts like forgiveness can change UX for the better. Everett also shares his view on why UX is gaining momentum in the enterprise.
