Tell us a bit about yourself.
Currently, I’m working as a PhD student/research assistant at the Very Large Business Applications Lab at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Faculty of Computer Science, Department of Technical and Business Information Systems (FIN-ITI) (Prof. Dr. Klaus Turwoski). I’m a member of the Center for Very Large Business Application (CVLBA) research project and interested in Business Process Management and in the Design of Information Systems (e. g. ERP or Campus Management).
Share a bit about your SAP and UA Research background. How long have you been studying SAP-related topics? How long have you been active with UA Research?
My University Alliances (UA) research background is related with my membership in the Center for Very Large Business Applications research project and the SAP University Competence Center located at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. The access to experts and the opportunity to work with all the new solutions is very interesting. Since February 2012, I have been working with SAP products such as SAP ERP in combination to my research project “VLBA Serious Games”.
Tell us about your current research projects. What projects are you working on? What do you hope or expect to find out through your research projects? Has your understanding of SAP and the marketplace grown through the experiences related to your project?
In my research project “VLBA Serious Games” I’m working on a simulation platform for ERP systems, especially SAP ERP 6.0.
What do you like most about the University Alliances Community on the new Jive platform? How does this help/improve your SAP knowledge?
The new design is descriptive and helps users find the important, relevant content much easier.
