Short podcast with Todd Morrison from TechTarget on SAP's announcements from TechEd Bangalore regarding developer engagement and the new River development platform.
An article for SearchSAP.com based on some of my experiences getting SAP's Data Services and Business Warehouse to work together. Data Services 4.0 and BW 7.3 provide some nice advantages in inter-operability over previous versions, but there are still some confusing issues.

Includes some advice on how to do this but patch over the flaws with 3rd-party solutions.
