Welcome to my personal site. My name is Tobias Hofmann and I work for an SAP partner and I am an SAP Mentor. I’ll use this space primarily to blog about SAP related topics.

Why this site?

I used to use SAP Community Network as my primary blogging channel. I created this site to be able to present myself in the internet and let people inform what I am doing.


My primary interest with SAP and my daily work tasks are related to SAP Portal, SAP Mobile Platform, Afaria and Fiori. In a more general aspect, they are Java, HTML5, mobility in general and hybird apps in special. Although I admit to not stop here as I am very much interested in topics around open source, Linux, portals (Liferay), and analytics (Pentaho, ElaticSearch, logstash). In early 2000 I used to run my own Grid at home for encoding videos, using X86, SPARC as well as a Laptop as my home cluster. Today this would be called: private cloud.

What to expect

Do not expect a 24/7 uptime or super fast internet speed. I may turn off the site from time to time on a weekend for some maintenance task.
