We talked to the students about SAP corporate story and how we have lead the world of business solutions and simplification for the past 40 years; how we have taken leadership stances in areas like Cloud Computing, Mobility, Analytics, Database and Application. We feel it is important for students to understand how we have impacted the global economy over the years by helping our 2,50,000+ customers run better and simpler there by helping the world run better. By 2030, 75% of the global workforce will comprise of Millenials and all companies need to understand the unique working style of this wave of their workforce.
