Fresh off the TechEd/d-code events, Jon chats with SAP cloud expert Dick Hirsch about how he sees the SAP cloud at this juncture. This video is intended for those who want an overview of the SAP cloud with some context on "S-Innovations" as well - the so-called "Simple Suite". A second, longer companion podcast, "Hashing the SAP cloud," digs deeper into the nuances of SAP's cloud strategy.

Is customer experience a fantasy, or an achievable goal? At Argyle's Digital Marketing Leadership event in Boston, Jon pushed his skeptical view on customer experience with CX expert Howard Beader of SDL. Jon and Howard kick around the lessons (and poll results) from the marketers/CMOs in attendance, and talk about how data fits into the customer experience challenge.

In this 47 minute highlight replay from a live interactive Crowd Chat, hosts Dennis Howlett and Vinnie Mirchandani explore and debate the issues raised by Mirchandani's new book, SAP Nation: A Runaway Economy.

This event replay was prepared for this podcast feed by Den Howlett and Jon Reed, two of the co-founders of diginomica.com. You can review the text-based Crowd Chat discussion here: https://www.crowdchat.net/SAPNation

Note: there are a few minor audio glitches on the file due to international bandwidth, but I think you'll find this discussion is well worth a few blips.

In this audio combo of two diginomica video shoots, Jon first talks with Ray Wang about the future of digital and whether the Chief Digital Officer is a BS idea, or a pressing need. Then, Jon shifts gears to talk to Brain Sommer about the future of selling and why selling is changing profoundly. The guys also kick around the impact of media on selling - "stop putting, and start blogging."

In this very informal evening chat, Jon caught up with the inimitable Dick Hirsch to share what cloudy SAP insights they learned from their meetings and backchannel digging at Sapphire Now and ASUG 2014. Dick also shares what he's learned since the show, and the guys look to the future with cloud and developer topics, plus suite-versus-platform and other questions unanswered.

UPDATE: here's the link to slides that go with this audio on slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/jonerp/digging-into-hana-roi-and-biz-case-analysis

In this informal but focused talk, Jon Reed talks through a HANA business case methodology with Tony Guetersloh of TekLink. The guys review how to move beyond HANA "speed hype" to build a project finance use case - informed by process owners. There will be a companion audio slideshare version released with the slides. Jon has no financial relationship with TekLink, this was just for fun because the content was worth a hard look.
