Which Megatrends are reshaping the world?
Which steps are necessary from being a functional to being a strategic CIO?
And how does global IT influence business strategies?
Hosted by Rupert Lehner, Senior Vice President, Solutions Business Group, Fujitsu,
Oliver Bussmann, Executive Vice President and Global Information Officer of SAP AG gave
an insight into his view on social media, mobility and how SAP is using these trends to be
a role model to its customers.
Mobility, Big data, Cloud and Social – these are the megatrends of today according to Oliver Bussmann. He summarized all of them under the umbrella “The consumerization of IT”, which is driving innovations and being a key factor for the success of tomorrow. Being a role model to its customers SAP now already has more than 80 projects and 5% of its total IT project portfolio featuring innovations from these areas.
Real time analysis with SAP-HANA (running by the way on more than 150 Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers), more than 18,000 tablets and other mobile devices and around 50 apps covering the areas Business Intelligence, Information, Sales and Productivity are only some examples of how SAP is using these global trends as innovation drivers.
All this is not only a strategy for the future innovations but also influencing the way we do business today! Using HANA for example brings accelerated value and real time insight at the speed of light: Real time sales pipeline analysis could now be done only in seconds instead of 6 hours 1 year ago.
