SAP Labs Bulgaria: Contributing to key components of SAP strategy
For the 18-years history of SAP Labs Bulgaria, we’ve grown more than ten times. Our location was among the first where SAP has built cloud expertise and skills around platform technology. Today, eight years later, 75% of the teams in our Lab are working on cloud topics. Main priorities in SAP Labs Bulgaria are Cloud Engineering, Cloud Technologies and Cloud Mindset.
SAP Cloud Platform is a key part of the Intelligent Enterprise – the central nervous system for integrated SAP solutions. SAP Labs Bulgaria is contributing significantly to the platform. We are working on core services as well as on important extension capabilities for other solutions like SuccessFactors, S4HANA and SAP Hybris. We also have strong contributions towards life-cycle management, User Interface & Experience across a broader portfolio of SAP products.
Our knowledge and track-record in technology topics like platform infrastructure and development, as well the talents that work at SAP Labs Bulgaria, are the reason why we are trusted to work on key components of SAP strategy. Our company is growing on regular basis during the last years. We’ve managed to build teams which combine young talents and deeper expertise. We have strong engineering culture and our colleagues dedicate part from their time to help youngsters also to develop in that area. We organize different activities helping the education in information technology at high schools and universities. Colleagues from the Lab are mentoring and teaching students on a regular basis.
Our Lab is recognized as one of the Best Employers in Bulgaria for 2017*. During this year, we also won the award for Top ICT Employer of Computerworld magazine. Our constant efforts towards employee satisfaction and engagement help us to attract the top talents in the country. At the Lab, we do not stick to the principle that people are the greatest asset of a company, because assets depreciate with time. People become more and more valuable with the years as they become more experienced and gain additional skills. We rather see people as our greatest wealth. Now, with the digitalization of the world, the only big differentiator a company could have is exactly the people.
I strongly believe that being a strategic development center for SAP technologies motivates us to contribute more to SAP purpose to help the world run better and improve people’s lives.
