New Role @ SAP
Hi all. Some of you already know from having talked to you this week at SAPPHIRENOW in Orlando, but I just wanted to put out a note to the rest of the community as well, and tell you that I am transferring from the EPM CSA(Enterprise Performance Management Customer Solution Adoption) group into the HANA Product Management group where I will be working along side my friend, fellow egeek, and colleague, Thomas Jung. I’ve been working on BPC NW since joining SAP back in 2007, and I have always wanted to work on the technology side of the house rather than on a specific application, so this new role will give me a chance to dig deep into the technology platform, and of course HANA specifically. My focus will be on HANA development tools, SQLScript, ABAP on HANA, etc., so I plan to get back in touch with the developer community very soon with more content on SCN, as well as here on enterprisegeeks.com. My disconnect from the developer community in the last 5 years is something that has always bothered me on some level, so I am very excited to re-engage.
It has been a great ride working with the EPM team. From the BPC architecture team where I started, through BPC solution management, and finally the EPM CSA team, I’ve worked with some of the best people on the planet, and I am grateful for it, and humbled by it. We’ve done some incredible things in the last 5 years with BPC and it will only get better in the future. So my best wishes to all my colleagues in the EPM solutions area.
So thanks and see ya later to the EPM group, and hello to the HANA Product Management team. I can’t wait to get started, lets push in-memory computing to its limits and beyond!
