Nothing excites me more than exploring bleeding edge technologies and using them to create opportunities and solve problems that businesses or individuals face. I love to learn, teach others, and work with small and larger teams to build jaw dropping solutions.
With my strong innovation implementation experience, I am passionate about helping others innovate. I believe that everyone, given the right support, can be innovative.
I have a strong academic background with high quality publication record, history of organizing successful conferences and serving advisory roles. I have taught and advised hundreds of graduate students.
I lead teams of researchers and developers in innovative projects. In one of my past roles I drove the set up of a brand new SAP Research centre in Singapore, and currently I am the global content and strategy lead for SAP’s newest, flagship series of developer events, d-kom.
I am a co-founder of Business Information Systems Institute (I2G), a successful spin-off delivering high quality R&D services in statistical NLP, information extraction, data mining and data integration.
Things I am good at:
(1) Working with teams to spark innovation and achieve outstanding results. I worked with teams to create numerous innovative concepts in the enterprise software space leading teams from 2 to over 50 people, using SAP (including BusinessObjects) and non-SAP technologies.
(2) Evangelizing technology. I speak in front of audiences as large as 10’000 people (such as SAP TechEd 2011 in Bangalore), and I have consistently been well received by the audiences – multiple awards for top speakers.
(3) Community enablement. Recognized as an active contributor and SAP Mentor in the SAP Community Network, I blog about innovative projects, maintaining a broad network of top SCN contributors.
(4) Understanding, shaping and driving business value of innovation. I delivered a number of innovative solutions to customers, solving their problems.
