And living up to their expectations Chiranjeev Brahma and Krishna Kumar delivered wonderful sessions.
Chiranjeev Brahma from SAP University Alliances started the proceedings narrating the SAP Corporate story to the students. The story mainly covered the 5 focus markets for SAP – Applications, Analytics, Database, Cloud and Mobility. This was followed by a Design Thinking activity. In this activity the students were given the task of completing the marshmallow challenge. The session elicited a great response for the students as they competed with each other.
