CSR Newsletter-SAP Software Donation Program
Our first SAP JAM donation in North America
Tyler Robinson, a teen and devoted fan of the Grammy winning Imagine Dragons, lost his battle with cancer at 16 years old. Together with his family, the band created The Tyler Robinson Foundation. Our collaboration with the foundation began at this year’s employee FKOM (Field Kick off Meeting), SAP’s annual sales meeting, as we featured The Imagine Meeting, a draw for 10 people to meet the Imagine Dragons by making donations to the cause and automatically being entered in for a raffle. All the funds that were raised went directly to the foundation. SAP partner, Optimal Solutions generously matched SAP’s donation at the concert, effectively making this the largest grant the foundation has received to date! Check out TRF’s heartwarming thank you video to SAP and Optimal.
It is truly incredible to see how far our collaboration has come since our initial involvement less than 5 months ago. Our commitment to helping the foundation grow was never more apparent that at SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando, FL. We announced that the Tyler Robinson Foundation will receive the first ever SAP Jam donation in North America! The foundation will receive an SAP JAM starter pack which will enable over 100 users both internal and external to collaborate. SAP will provide end user training on how to use the solution, and assistance with the set-up. The foundation will also have access to BizX, allowing them to use Jam on their mobile devices.
SAP Jam is a cloud tool that delivers social collaboration where you work. When musicians play together, a jam session highlights just how important improvisation and harmony are. When your employees work together, harmony and teamwork can be just as important. SAP Jam helps every business person bring everything together to help them get their work done. From across a company, you can use SAP Jam as an enterprise social networking tool that helps improve communication. You can better connect employees across different geographies, and enable them to find subject matter experts quickly and share best practices. And, you can empower employees to drive decision making by helping teams tame project chaos, build consensus, and make informed decisions.
Please take a few minutes to watch the ASUG Video interview from SAPPHIRE NOW with Jesse Robinson from the Tyler Robinson Foundation, Elliott Garofalo from NTT Data, the partner leading the implementation, Rodolpho Cardenuto, President of Global Partner Operations at SAP and Dave Hutchinson, SVP of Marketing for SAP Americas, sharing the story of our collaboration. We look forward to continuing to work together by providing our technology to help families battle the unseen costs of childhood cancer.
