What's the Sydney Inside Track Event?

An SAP Inside Track is a community event, open to all people from the Community (Customers, Consultants, and Freelancers).

No matter if you are a developer, business consultant, or architect.

The event is organized by peers from the community.. and YOU are able to influence the agenda.

Find more information in this blog post 

*Please note that this event entry is a summarized version of the original event and your registration may be required by the organizer shared on the original event website. RSVP accuracy here is without guarantee and does not constitute registration

SAP Inside Track Sydney Chapter had started by @simon_kemp_sap in early 2000nds and continued by @Synctegral AKA Adi Mogilevsky @Mauriciolauffer and @sandysantososince 2019. This was  just a regular meeting of the local SAP community, but evolved into remore speakers presentations during COVID lockdowns.

Hereafter recordings of our community events:

Back in 2022 we have restarted to conduct in person events by group of Sydney enthusiasts icluding @MustafaBensan Bensan, @Murali Shanmugham, @greg Carino, @John Patterson and @Mike Doyle


Who can join?

Anyone can join! Normally people have at least some link with the wider SAP. eco-system, but we encourage everyone to join since SAP Business Technology Platform opens traditional SAP to wider audiences of functional consultants, project managers, developers, architects or even just the friend or partner of one of these people.  is most welcome too.  We will have an event every two months or so in a different location - the next one will be conducted in the Western Sydney Start Up Hub in Parramatta.

What does the Sydney event look like?

Usually we will have one or two presenters for the interesting hot topics, but most of the time will be spend for networking and introducing yourself to the wider Sydney community, while streaming the event live via MS-Teams the SAP Inside Track Sydney event will have the global reach.

What if I'm new in Sydney?

If you're new in Sydney then SAP Inside Track Sydney Chapter event is the must go event for you! Multiple participants indicated they found their dream jobs by networking during the chat, which suits our Australian spirit.

Is the event run by SAP?

No! The SAP Inside Track is a community event. Whilst SAP employees often attend, and sometimes are key  organizers, the majority of organizers and attendees do not work for SAP. SAP's goal is to assist where they can, providing infrastructure like the groups site you are reading this on. This is very similar to SAP Stammtisch events, while has a slight difference conducted in the venue with the presentation capabilities and not just another meeting in the coffee shop.

How many people will attend?

Our statistic shows that out of 200 people having marked an interest in the event we have about 80 persons confirmed and at the end 50 participants
