I’m excited to see that over 6,500 learners have already signed up to our newly launched program, openSAP Thought Leaders, which will be delivered through openSAP, our established open online learning channel.
With openSAP, we have been delivering knowledge on SAP’s innovations to the entire SAP ecosystem since May 2013. openSAP has proven popular and has attracted hundreds of thousands of learners that include SAP users, partner consultants, academics, customers, and many more. With openSAP Thought Leaders we will provide a platform for thought leaders, from both the business and academic worlds, with the opportunity to share their insights on the digital transformation, how to manage the change, and how to leverage new technologies such as big data analytics, cloud, mobile, cyber-physical systems or business networks to redefine business processes, decision making or invent entirely new business models.
By sharing stories of successful digital innovation and transformation, we hope to empower learners to open their minds to the latest and greatest ideas in the areas of digital transformation. Our aim is to encourage our community to adopt new ideas from our thought leaders, put them into action, and inspire others to begin the journey and put your mark on the future.
I’m happy to welcome our first thought leader, Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar, Chair of Information Systems, Department of Infomatics at the Technische Universität München (TUM – Technical University of Munich).
“Envisioning and implementing a truly digital strategy implies overcoming the separation of minds, roles, and structures between business and IT. Leadership in digital transformation is as much about innovative business models as it is about cultural change and new skillsets.” – Prof. Dr. Krcmar
Dr. Krcmar’s course, Leadership in Digital Transformation, is now open for enrollment and begins October 6.
We hope you will join us on this exciting journey!
