Even though a Bullseye-Tour of South America does sound quite appealing, we saw more sense in enabling our colleagues to build, configure, set up, and conduct the demo themselves. So while Georg and Nick were in Mexico City they took the opportunity to share some Bullseye and also Infinite Cart expertise. There was only one minor drawback. The main component of the Bullseye platforms, a microcontroller called “Teensy-LC USB Board”, is a slightly exotic piece of equipment and therefore not easily purchasable in all countries. Our Colombian colleagues were faced with exactly this problem. Them being under some time pressure, we decided to try our luck in the electronic stores of downtown Mexico City. Continue reading
After having accomplished their mission at the FMI Midwinter Executive Conference in Scottsdale, Georg and Nick’s next stop was Mexico City to support the local SAP Forum. Our Mexican colleagues are so fond of Hybris Labs, they even adopted the original version of our very first IoT prototype, the Smart Wine Shelf. It looks quite happy in its new home. Continue reading
Arriving on the other side of the planet without your luggage is a slightly annoying experience, to say the least. But you generally can survive for a day or two until you receive your personal belongings. Now, unlike a toothbrush and underwear, a Hybris Labs Bullseye demo is nothing you can buy in your local store…yet. This is exactly the problem Sven and Nick were confronted with when they arrived in Fort Lauderdale for the SAP Hybris Americas Summit.
Waiting for the suitcase containing the prototype without being able to do anything was painful enough, but the knowledge that it would need to make it through customs without a member of the Labs team present to charm the authorities was…worrying. We’re not saying Labs luggage is always suspicious, but…well…we didn’t want them to take our beer!
Under other circumstances we’re always happy to share, but in this case it was special beer which we needed for our demo. For the Americas Summit we had planned to set up Bullseye in the HEINEKEN® Beer Selector version. And with basically no time to spare, we managed…
It didn’t only look pretty though. After Infinite Cart, Bullseye is now the second prototype by Hybris Labs that runs on YaaS, shows products sponsored by an SAP Hybris customer, and is integrated with SAP Hybris Profile.
An entire armada of them!
At dmexco – Digital Marketing Exposition & Conference in Cologne.
And they did an excellent job indeed! There was an overwhelming interest in our Infinite Cart demo. Initially out of curiosity why the SAP Hybris booth looked like a showroom for taps and sinks. But further inquisitiveness soon drove visitors into the hands of SAP Hybris Profile. This once again showed us how much sense it makes to integrate with other services. That way we can generate some buzz around the actual product and in return we have less difficulties explaining why we have taps and sinks at our booth.
So listen to the rubber duck and check out the SAP Hybris Profile Developer Portal.
