Oliver, what inspired you to become an SAP Mentor?

handshake .pngWhen I founded my company in early 2015 to leverage the upcoming platform-based business on SAP platform technology, I was asked to join the SAP Mentor team to bring in my skills of working with SAP for more than 20 years in different partner roles internationally. I was very excited and honored to become part of such an unbelievably nice, experienced, international team of experts that works so well together, stays honest and always has a lot of fun. I was very impressed with the overall experience and that our input and feedback was taken seriously by the SAP board and management which then led to real improvements in several areas.

What advice would like to share with other SAP community members?

298874_collaborate_blue (1).pngWe never had better circumstances and easy access to enabling technologies to design and establish new software solutions and businesses to start something new. Building a new business as a startup or a new solution based on SAP platform technologies is possible with limited investment for skilled people today. Always do that with a real customer as a pilot and properly analyse that there is a real market for it and how to reach it. Whether you are a developer or architect, or even a sales representative, it doesn’t matter, as long as your role fits your personal strengths and desire and you build the right team around it. And the community might be the right forum to find them and get early feedback.
