SAP puts on a nice event annually for industry analysts to help keep us up-to-date on everything (and there is a lot). I will not spoil the fun and reveal what is in the Event note that will publish next week. However, I will point out there were a few surprises like the announcement of a new SOA-based/SaaS solution for the midmarket. There is a good description of this on the Ponderings of Woodrow blog. I also spent a good amount of time getting more detail about Duet and SAP's Information Worker strategy. The short story is that it is a good start, but there is still much unrealized potential (more on this in the Event note). See my rant on user-centricity for more details.
