Nominate amazing SAP Experts to become SAP Mentors

Not so sure yet? Who are they again?

SAP Mentors are the top community influencers of the SAP Ecosystem. Most of the ~130 mentors work for customers or partners of SAP. All of them are hands-on experts of an SAP product or service, as well as excellent champions of community-driven projects. More details on SCN: http://sapmentors.sap.com or via the SAP Mentor Introdcution Slide Deck on SlideShare.

The best way to get to know SAP Mentors and what it is all about is via stories and we collected some of them over the years:

Beyond SAP many of us do charity work and some even combine SAP, charity and mentoring, like John Astill tutored middle schoolers to 2nd place at SAP TechEd Demo Jam in Las Vegas last year. [Video]

You may still wonder: So what exactly is it that makes the SAP Mentor magic happen?

We have a document for you that all SAP Mentors put together describing exactly that.

More open questions? May be you find your answer on the SAP Mentor FAQ page.

Or post it as a comment to this blog post and we are happy to answer.

One of our biggest goals is for the SAP Mentors to represent the whole spectrum of the large SAP ecosystem. If you know an amazing SAP expert who works in France, Russia or Japan, please nominate, as these are countries where SAP has a big footprint, but so far zero SAP Mentors. It should be a matter of national pride to have at least one 😉 The SAP Mentors have influence into the highest level within SAP and it is unfortunate if some countries’ voices are not represented. Please also nudge customers to step up and fill the SAP Mentor role, We would like to get back to our original 30% customer, 30%partner, 30% individual consultant and 10% SAP employee ratio. Women as well should lean in, their voices and ideas are so important in our conversation. Another vector is expertise and as the imitative grew out of the original SAP Developer Network, we are strong on the technology side of the house, but our ranks could really benefit from more functional brain power and especially industry expertise is missing. We are living in interesting ever accelerating times, we need to know where things are going and Startups are making it happen, lets also make sure that some of them have a seat at the table. 

I know you have someone in mind that would enrich the ranks of SAP Mentors. Please nominate that amazing SAP Expert to become an SAP Mentor

We will take into consideration all nominations and will announce the new SAP Mentors before the SAP TechEd season in the fall.

      Just found another gem of who I thought "Wait, he's not a mentor yet?"

      Hope the nomination was not too late
