Jon's diginomica latest

At past SAP TechEds, Matthias Steiner and I would typically have spirited bar conversations, or yell at each other on the patio about the keynotes. For SAP TechEd 2021, thanks to Neptune Software's podcast series, we have an informal online version of the same. These are our initial reactions only, taped right after the day two developer keynote. Amongst the topics covered: SAP cloud adoption and RISE, low-code and no-code, role of smaller SAP partners, and of course the free tier developer announcement for SAP BTP. We also talk about whether sustainability resonates, and the future of SAP TechEd. Podcast provided to our channel with kind permission of Neptune Software.
