Sindhu Gangadharan – #SAPTechEd 2013 Speaker of the Week
The beginning of the SAP TechEd 2013 season is near-at-hand and this week we have another great speaker, Sindhu Gangadharan. Sindhu is Chief Product Owner for Process and Network Integration, and is a process integration veteran, involved in various integration projects, since 1999. However, what is less known is that Sindhu is an enthusiastic blogger. She writes about the experience of being an Indian woman living in Germany and raising 2 kids. As her inspiration, Sindhu lists Steve Jobs. She is particularly inspired by his attention to detail, perfectionism, and involvement in the product lifecycle.
Currently, Sindhu is hard at work on SAP HANA Cloud Integration. She considers integration processes to be the key differentiator for SAP Cloud solutions, and expects that in the future, SAP HANA Could will continue to support Ariba, SuccessFactors and others while cultivating a stand-alone cloud offering applicable for any type of cloud solution. In addition, customers can also expect a convergence of integration technologies to the cloud, and a common user experience.
“This SAP TechEd is going to be interesting because we’re going into the next level of detail of detail of our new product SAP HANA Cloud Integration. Last year, we announced the product. This year, we will show it in action so customers will be able to come and take part in hands-on sessions. (They will) get to touch the products, (which) will be unique. I really hope that customers and partners will take advantage of this opportunity.” Sindu Gangadharan
