I would like to use my introductory post to the SAP BPX Community to explain: who I am, my intellectual product offering, and the direction that you can expect to see this blog to take over the next year.
I work for IBM Canada in the SAP Practice. My primary job function is being a cross-sector Sales and Distribution consultant, with some potential spill over into Customer Relationship Management. On top of this role, I am an active member of IBM’s internal BPX Group and head up the Web 2.0 division of this group – it is this job function that I will be writing about and reading about in the SAP BPX Community.
From my profile picture you have most likely noticed that I am a junior resource, just over 1 year out of college, and am not (yet) a catalyst for change within the IBM organization. Although my youngness may be a hindrance in some areas, in the Web 2.0 space it is not. I grew up on these technologies, understand them inherently, and have a lot of ideas on how Web 2.0 architecture could/should integrate into SAP. I am passionate about this cause, and will be running internal SAP Oriented Web 2.0, and Enterprise 2.0 seminars and webinars like they are semi-going out of style over the next couple of months internally at IBM.
I generate the content for these Webinars through primary research, web research, ideas, trends in the Web 2.0 movement, the blogosphere, and using the IBM SAP Consultants around me with exposure to the bleeding edge of SAP. It is this content that I will be blogging here.
In the near-term you can expect to see me blog at least once a week (I have even put it in my Lotus Notes calendar to remind me). I also have high hopes of establishing a monthly podcast featuring an interview with an influential figure in the Web 2.0 movement, Enterprise 2.0 movement, SAP Imagineering, or IBM Subject Matter Experts.
Subscribe to my RSS feed, and expect to see some content thrown at you very soon.
If you have similar interests, I would be very interested in subscribing to your blog as well.
