Synposis The annual SAP TechEd Conference was in Las Vegas on October 15 – 19.  This is the first year that there has not been a separate Sybase TechWave conference, and there were different dynamics and different energies present at this event.  There was a special “PowerBuilder Developer’s Conference” (PBDC) that ran a series of two tracks concurrent with the bulk of SAP TechEd.

Jeff Wayt will give detailed coverage of the PowerBuilder Developer’s Conference, including announcements regarding PowerBuilder’s roadmap, Appeon Mobile Edition, and thumbnail descriptions of the other sessions, as well as other announcements and his perceptions of the event in general.

Bill Smith and John Avery will discuss the SAP ASE aspects of the event, including SAP’s announcements for ASE, HANA, and other industry insider information.

Cynthia Gill, our local chapter secretary and long-time ISUG Board Member will discuss the evolution of ISUG in the post Sybase acquisition world, and relay near term plans for ISUG for the remainder of the year.
