We were fortunate to have Josie, Program manager of University Alliances, presented at the beginning to lead a tour in SAP Labs office. She introduced the history and achievement of SAP Labs, the culture and life in SAP, variety of activities and comfortable working environment in SAP to the visitors.
A special thanks to Ni Ping from Labs Network & Fast Growth Market Group, who did an outstanding job making a wonderful speech for the audience. First, she gave an overview of SAP Labs Network and SAP in Greater China. Ni Ping illustrated the innovations in China for China and the world through three aspects: Game Changing Innovations, China Solutions Development, and Global Solutions Development. Then she raised two questions: Is innovation the solution for the challenges in emerging markets? How does Innovation happen in Emerging Markets? She also gave three examples to explain them. She ended the speech with the key challenges and success factors of SAP in China market.
In the final Q&A session, Ni Ping answered several questions prepared by visitors. They exchanged different opinions with each other. We were happy to see the activity has led to students’ impressive cognition of SAP Labs China.
We had a better understanding of SAP after the visit. It’s really a multicultural corporation who pays attention to employees’ development. Ms. Ni made a full preparation for the lecture. And thanks to each staff for their supporting to the activity and handling the crisis. We are looking forward to the next cooperation with more comprehensive content and considerate arrangement.
