The 2021 SAP Extended Warehouse Management Advent Calendar

We have reached the closing month of 2021, and it has been quite the challenging year. So, in order to lighten the mood and lift up some spirits, the SAP EWM Product Management team has decided to try out something new this year by creating our very own virtual SAP EWM Advent Calendar.

For those not familiar with the calendar, it is a Christmas tradition originating in Germany, which counts down the days until Christmas beginning with December 1st. Normally, these calendars contain sweets or other small gifts and trinkets, which are hidden behind the calendar doors representing a day. As this is a virtual calendar, we will be sharing daily various content that we did not manage to share during the year as well as content you might have missed during the initial publishing.

We will be updating this article with a new paragraph each day up until December 24th, so you can bookmark this page until then for easier access to the daily updates.

DAY 1: Welcome to the Podcasts

To start off the calendar, today we would like to share with you a wonderful podcast initiative from Andreas Rupp and Matthias Nater, who work as solution advisors for digital supply chain.
The Extended Warehouse Management Podcast series offers interesting information and facts about intralogistics with SAP EWM. In each episode they talk about various topics such as the question “When was SAP EWM developed and how and why?” where they also share additional information for each topic linked to the Podcast.

For the SAP DSC Logistics experts out there, there is also the long running SAP Transportation Management podcast. In each episode of the podcast, the hosts and guests, made up of various SAP TM developers in Walldorf, talk about various aspects of SAP TM, from very specific topics such as functionalities and features, to broader ones, such as how development is being done while working from home.

If you want to sink your teeth deeper, SAP TM also has a “Black Belt” edition of the podcast, where topic are presented at a very detailed level, diving deep into specific aspects, sometimes down to the field level.

We hope you enjoy listening to these podcasts as much as we enjoy making them.

Just to recap, on Day 1 of the SAP EWM advent calendar we shared:
