Blog It Forward- Saurabh Raheja

Hi All,

Before starting my blog, I would like to thank Loed Despuig who blogged it forward to me. You can see his blog here Blog It Forward – Loed Despuig.

I would also like to mention that Blog It Forward chain is a very good initiative where we can learn, connect and know about our SAP colleagues.


I wish to introduce myself as Saurabh Raheja.I completed my B.E. graduation in Computer Sciences from University Institute of Engg. & Technology, Panjab University, Chandigarh. I was passed out from my college in 2012. I was placed for Infosys Limited during our placements in college. When I was waiting for Infosys Joining , I got fascinated from SAP. I cleared my first SAP certification of SAP ABAP in the month of March 2013. After that I joined Infosys Mysore Campus where we had intensive training programme. We had objective as well as hands on exams on regular intervals which we had to clear. I managed to clear the training and joined production unit of Infosys in Chandigarh on 1st August 2013.

I started my career in SAP BI BO and tried to develop strong technical knowledge in the field of Analytics.

I appeared for my Second SAP certification on Apr 17, 2015 and cleared SAP Business Objects Web Intelligence 4.0 certification.

I also appeared for my Third SAP certification on Sept 22,2015 and cleared SAP HANA Application Associate (Edition 2014) certification.

With God grace I have been performing well in my professional career so far.

I will try to keep the momentum going and will try my level best to give a best shot with perfection in every work

Lets see some of pictures of my hometown.

1) Open Hand Monument

A great place for pictures, the area is equally good to spot peacocks and other exotic migratory birds, especially in the winters. A nice spot to spend a few hours in the peace which the area offers.


2) My Alma-Mater – Spent four years of B.E studying Computer Science Engineering.(2008-2012)


3) Famous Tourist Spot of Chandigarh – Sukhna Lake


4) Panjab University – You need not be a student at the University. PU, as we like to call it.


5) Horse Riding


And now lets answers some of the quick questions.

Answers of the questions which were blog it forwarded to me:

How do you think the way you were raised affects your Career?

I think the way I am raised has definately affected my Career in a good way. I was given proper guidance and comfortable life by my parents. Without having to struggle I was just to keep hard working and gain knowledge in the field of SAP to shape my career.

Describe in one short sentence: “what SAP solution benefit you and your organisation”

I am working in the SAP Business Objects Portfolio which comprises of front end reporting tools. So if any business or partner wants to examine, analysis data one can develop reports on that. So Analytics Space of SAP is benefiting me and my organisation for quicker responses and analysis of data.

What is the best lesson your parents taught you?

Though Parents keep on teaching lessons, the one best lesson I would like to share is that “Quality of Living ” or we can say “health package” 😀 . They say if health is gone everything is gone and then there is no benefit of earning lots and lots of bucks which will ultimately going to get drained in recovery of your health. So I always try to keep myself fit by indulging in various sports, yoga and gymnastics.

What do you enjoy most in your work and why?

Working in the SAP field was always my dream. So its dream come true for me which my organisation has gifted to me . Now I happily try to work in every contests and events( hate when I miss a single event) of SAP. I think one should always do what he/she is having interest into. I always had interest in SAP and I thorougly enjoy working for its various solutions and products which has even led me grow professionally so well in my organisation too.

What do you imagine or predict is the future of your topic

I can imagine and predict that in future there will be lots of data in every organisation which it has to deal with. Therefore to analyse, understand and make it more manageable its very important to make use of Analytics solution of SAP. SAP Business Intelligence Business Objects is one of the offerings from SAP which will help any organisation grow and manage well.

Name the person who affected you most in your career/ way of thinking and why?

I would like to mention here two names which has groomed me well not only professionally but also “All Round Development”

First person would be my mentor Siddharth Agarwal who initially guided me, taught me and make me understand the world of SAP and how interesting it is to be in it. I was able to clear my SAP ABAP certification only because of his guidance.

Second would be my elder brother Gaurav Raheja who taught me how to communicate well within organisation and also outside organisation,

I would like to keep my blog short otherwise people may get offended how boring I write. Being honest I don`t have much of experience in writing blogs.

Last question I would like to share here

Which 5 things do you absolutely want to achieve in life?

I would like to jot down 5 points which I wante to achieve in my life in sequence.

1) Stay fit and remain healthy throughout life with the motto  ” Simple Living High Thinking”

2) Have a decent earning so that I can take care of my family and near and dear ones well.

3) Atleast once in a life time go for an Euro Trip with my dear ones for holidays.

4) Maintain a good tempo socially and make good friends.

5) Be good to those who are good to me and be more bad to those who are bad to me.

Tell us something about your hobbies?

I love to play Lawn Tennis and sometimes in free time also like to play musical Keyboard.

With this I would like to end my blog . If you like it please don`t forget to Like/Share and Comment.

Please do provide your feedback so that I am be able to learn and improve in coming blogs writing
