About our SAP Runs SAP Chat Speakers
Author, Speaker, Advisor
Geoffrey Moore is an author, speaker and business advisor to many of the leading companies in the high-tech sector, including Cisco, Cognizant, Compuware, HP, Microsoft, SAP, and Yahoo!.
Geoffrey divides his time between consulting on strategy and transformation challenges with senior executives and speaking internationally on those same topics. His latest book Escape Velocity: Free Your Company’s Future from the Pull of the Past, keeps this intent in mind and is the result of his years of experience working with large enterprises.
Escape Velocity is Moore’s sixth book for business leaders in the high-tech sector. His first book, Crossing the Chasm, which addresses the challenges of gaining initial adoption for disruptive innovations, continues to be a best seller and required reading in business schools and entrepreneurship curricula. Moore wrote four subsequent books which addressed the challenges faced by management when competing in hyper-growth markets (Inside the Tornado) and those faced by investors when managing a high-tech stock portfolio (The Gorilla Game). The two additional books both address the organizational challenges faced by established enterprises, in one case posed by the volatility of the technology sector overall (Living on the Fault Line), in the other by the need to reignite innovation in mature franchises (Dealing with Darwin). Escape Velocity rounds out these efforts in service to established enterprises by laying out a comprehensive program for engaging with next-generation trends while maintaining their core franchises.
SVP & CIO Americas, SAP
Mike Golz, Senior Vice President & CIO Americas at SAP, oversees all IT infrastructure and applications in North America and Latin America, aligning information and technology strategy with SAP’s business strategy, directing the investment in IT to support the organization’s goals and providing best-in-class processes and reliable, optimized operations for all SAP lines of business in the Americas.
Mike also leads the unique Global “SAP Runs SAP” program which highlights IT and Product Development in areas of Enterprise Mobility, In-Memory Technology, Green IT and Cloud. As a result, SAP Global IT has become the company’s best customer reference, and Mike frequently speaks to customers about IT’s first-hand experiences with SAP software.
Previously, Mike was Senior Vice President, Global IT Application Services with worldwide responsibility for SAP’s internal business applications and external platforms, covering the entire spectrum of SAP solutions for SAP’s employees. Prior to that, Mike led SAP’s Product System Services unit providing the system infrastructure for SAP’s worldwide Education, Sales and Consulting lines of business.
For first-time and returning visitors to SAPPHIRE NOW, SAP Runs SAP is an SAP Global IT program led by SAP CIO Oliver Bussmann, which offers customers unique insight as an early adopter and first-reference customer of SAP applications, solutions, and products in each of five market categories. As an SAP Ramp-Up program customer, we have the opportunity to give early feedback to SAP from a customer perspective that allows us to make our product even better.
SAP Runs SAP is not only dedicated to future thinking, identifying trends, and sharing our experiences with new technologies, we are also a trusted advisor and enabler for your business.
Many of my favorite SAP Runs SAP ambassadors are going to be there — such as Michael Golz, Martin Heisig, Martin Lang and Matthias Wild. If you are attending, make sure you visit the SAP Runs SAP booth. It is your chance to see SAP Runs SAP in action.
I am most excited about the fact that enterprise mobility expert Eric Lai and SAP’s Chief Information Officer Oliver Bussmann will be taking part in a live #SAPCHAT on Wednesday, May 16 at 1:00 p.m. ET in Orlando.
Eric and Oliver will be talking about social media, SAP Runs SAP, bring your own device (BYOD), enterprise mobility and, and, and – anything goes live on Twitter.
If you have never seen a #SAPCHAT in action on Twitter, then make this a date for your diary. You do not need to be in Orlando to take part. I, for one, will be taking part from the comfort of my own home.
See you online
Usually you can find links to SAP Global IT and Oliver Bussmann interviews via the media coverage tab on this page. However, there is so much activity at the moment that they warrant a dedicated blog post.
Here are the latest interviews.
I really enjoyed the direct interaction and would like to thank those who took part and the lurkers who observed. A BIG thank you also goes to the entire team (SAP Marketing & Global Communications) for making it happen – proof that collaboration leads to fantastic things.
I love numbers so here are a couple relating to the #SAPChat. We covered 36 topics in 60 minutes and spoke about many SAP Runs SAP topics, for example how we are implementing our own mobile strategy and how we are using SAP HANA solutions internally
