As SAP Mentors are highly regarded on the community I thought I would take a few minutes to write a quick post to explain a little bit about who I am and how I may be able to contribute to the SAP Community particularly on my topic of choice which is SAP Business One and things related to tech and small enterprise.

I joined SAP in 2003 (coming up to my 10 year anniversary in August) to help launch SAP Business One in Australia as a country channel recruiter, product expert, channel manager and marketing person....just a few things to do when you launch a new product   :smile: and then after a few years moved in to a regional role as the responsible person for SAP Business One in Asia Pacific and Japan.

Now of course I am in a global role as the SAP Business One Evangelist (try explaining to a long term SAP person what an evangelist does) but i usually explain it like this...if it's related to SAP Business One and you cant find someone in SAP to help you....you can ask me and I'll find the answer.

So as the Evangelist for SAP Business One my job is to help people realize what a great solution we have and if they aren't finding that to be the case, to help them get it sorted out byu sharing how the product works, how it can be optimised and how they can maximise their investment in the solution.

A few ways I do that are via my web sites

The SAP Business One Academy - www.sapbusinessoneacademy.com

Richard Duffy. com - www.richardduffy.com

My YouTube Channel - www.youtube.com/duffyrichard

Richard Duffy SAP Business One Evangelist on FaceBook - https://www.facebook.com/richardduffyb1evangelist

as well as via contributions here and the SCN and wherever else I find people discussing SAP and small enterprise topics

You'll also find me on Twitter - posting as @richardaduffy and with the hashtag #SAPB1 as well as on Spiceworks, and LinkedIn where I look after the SAP Business One group - SAP Business One | LinkedIn 

You can also connect with me on LinkedIn via my profile - http://au.linkedin.com/in/richardaduffy/

I run my own data center as well with 4 HANA Servers, 6 Terminal Servers and a bunch of other bits and pieces primarily so people (prospective customers, partners and SAP employees) can experience SAP Business One in all its forms without having to deploy their own infrastructure in the first instance. You can request an account from the Practice page on the SAP Business One Academy - http://www.sapbusinessoneacademy.com/practice/

Oh, I am also an advocate for channels as a route to market and when I am not talking about SAP Business One I am spending my time helping SAP Channel partners to be more successful by delivering sales, pre-sales, marketing and from time to time, technical training as well to them all around the world.

So that's a bit about me and I look forward to meeting you here on the SCN , out on the web or at one of our upcoming SAP events!
