Last week, I attended the Red Hat Summit 2013 in Boston. This year's event filled Hynes Convention Center with a total of about 3500 Red Hat customers, partners, developers and employees.
In the summit, I had the chance to speak about our collaboration with Red Hat within the last 18 months, together with a colleague from Red Hat, Ted Jones. Our session Interoperability Results from SAP & Red Hat Collaboration was scheduled for Friday morning.
During the session, Ted and I shared information about SAP NetWeaver Gateway and JBoss Enterprise Data Services respectively. In addition, Ted also showed a number of demos showcasing the interoperability between JBoss Enterprise Data Services and SAP, via SAP NetWeaver Gateway as well as other OData translation and provisioning support within JBoss Enterprise Data Services. You can download a copy of our presentation from last week here.
During the event we also announced the availability of Pre-packaged SAP NetWeaver Gateway 2.0 SP6 on Fedora 18 virtual image. With this, JBoss developers can install a trial version of SAP NetWeaver Gateway on a virtual machine running Fedora in their local workstation in less than an hour. This will allow them to both provision OData services using SAP NetWeaver Gateway as well as consume pre-built services using their already existing JBoss development environment.
I look forward to our continued collaboration with Red Hat and already excited about showcasing it again with Ted, next time in SAP's own turf - SAP TechEd.
