Blog it Forward – Ruthvik Chowdary
Isabel Sanchez tagged me to participate in the #BlogItForward the BIF Challenge. To be honest, this challenge is a great opportunity to introduce myself to SAP Community and it gives a platform to ask some interesting question which I don’t know or I am very much interested to know. It’s really a different level of connecting where you get to know the other side of the person apart from the technical stuff. Let me try to do the same here!
I’m a Ruthvik Chowdary completed my Mechatronics Engineering in 2014 and started working as Robotic Program Engineer and later ended up as SAP Consultant for last 8+ years working in SAP and Non-SAP technologies basically I’m based out of Eluru (Andhra Pradesh).
My Hobbies: – I do travelling a lot with friends and try to capture some good Landscapes and also by irritating friends, I capture them as well as ?Photography & travelling is my stressbuster
IPL With Friends ?
Road Trip with Colleges ? Bangalore <-> Pondicherry
Relaxing in Cafeteria with Friends during office hours ?
Weekend Trip to waterfalls
Some of my Photography Skills, I know it’s not that good but my learning steps.
you can check more in Instagram https://www.instagram.com/ruthvik_chowdary/ or with #rc_clicks?
Fun Fact: – It’s not really a Fun Fact but let me try. I am someone who hates wearing formals. With a lot of uncomfortable I wear only on some important Client meetings, I wear hardly yearly once or twice
I hate reading books, I fall to sleep if I read more then 2 pages, So I use always PDF Read out loud option most of the time.
Here are my answers to your questions Isabel
How did you start in SAP?
My Journey to SAP is not as simple not easy. Due to some misunderstandings, I left my Robotic Program Career which is the biggest mistake I did at that moment and got trained in SAP PP with very limited knowledge. And joined in a small organization for very less salary to get an opportunity for learning more instead of reading books and getting rejected by companies.
There I worked for a couple of years and learned a lot of things related to subject & life. Later moved to Bangalore for better career growth in terms of salary 😛 by the time I gained 8+ years of exp in SAP I did 3 S/4 HANA Implementations out of 1 is Asia Pacific 1st HANA Go live in Sheet metals. 2 Global Support Projects Like Monsanto Etc. and rollout projects.
Along with working, I did some certifications like
1. SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP S/4HANA Sourcing and Procurement 1709
2. SAP Certified Associate – SAP Activate Project Manager
3. SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP S/4HANA Production Planning and Manufacturing (1709) – 75th Person to Clear
4. SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP S/4HANA Sales Upskilling
5. SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP S/4HANA Sourcing and Procurement – Upskilling for ERP Experts – 1st Person to Clear Certification
6. SAP Certified Application Associate – SAP Ariba Procurement 2019 (Q3) – 4th Person to Clear
Now I feel in 2014 I have taken a brave step and feel lucky to have uncle Sai Krishna Vallurupalli who is my mentor. Now I’m SME in S/4 HANA Manufacturing & Procurement
How do you see SAP in 10 years?
I personally feel SAP is in full speed innovations and in 2025 SAP is coming with X/4 HANA Name with almost 45-60% Automations / Machine learning / AI.
It’s very difficult to keep updated with SAP Innovations
That’s the only pain I feel in SAP
Do you think SAP has changed your life?
It’s a big YES. SAP has changed my life totally with no doubt.
I Would like to challenge others for BIF
and I retag Isabel Sanchez to hear answers from you as well ?
I would love them to answer below-mentioned questions in their BIF post
What do you do apart from SAP in your free time?
If not SAP Career where you would be seeing your self?
Who inspired you to choose SAP or what made you choose SAP?
Blog it forward!
Very nice pictures and great story. Congratulations on your SAP Certifications too. Will work on the "BIF".
Thank you Tammy Powlasvery much ? Looking forward to hearing your SAP Journey and Answers to my questions from you ?
Thanks for joining the family! If you haven't already done so, please post the link to this blog way back in the original one (here's the link)
I was going to say you have some great photos, but Tammy beat me to it. I particularly like the one of the waterfall! Where is that?
And as for your comment 'It’s very difficult to keep updated with SAP Innovations' - I hear you. Even being a grizzled SAP veteran (or maybe *because* I am a grizzled SAP veteran???) it's hard to keep up. But the challenge is an interesting one!
Thank you Susan Keohan
Glad you liked my Pictures, waterfall name is Hogenakkal its 150Km from Bangalore.
Next SAP teched 2020 visit to India will take you more to such waterfalls.
of course, you are a grizzled SAP veteran no doubt in that. if we also run with SAP in its innovations guess we can keep up to date ?

Ruthvik Chowdary you have quite an interesting story and it's good to know your interests. Where is that waterfall? Looks cool 🙂
And thanks for challenging me. I've answered the questions at the following link but I think my story isn't like yours.
Among the common things we both have is that I also don't like to wear formal. My best dress is Jeans and T-Shirt. When I was in Saudi Arabia, I sometimes also wore the local dress (that long white garment you may have seen Arab people wearing).
Faisal Iqbal I skipped some unwanted stuff so only it's interesting ? otherwise it would be a novel ?
waterfall name is Hogenakkal its 150Km from Bangalore (India)
Now a days most of them hate Formals, My Dress code is Jeans with Shirt all the time

Ruthvik Chowdary you have great talent in SAP & Photography ?, really your SAP Journey looks pretty interesting. out of all you Images, I like the one with sunrise or sun rase not sure.
I have one question for you if you don't mind please answer
In your journey you stated " I left my Robotic Program Career which is the biggest mistake I did at that moment" do you still have the same feeling now as well? because of the Robotics field in Booming like a rocket when compare to SAP
Thank you Former Member for your complements
answer to your question is a big NO!! because I'm very passionate about SAP and 100% satisfied to my SAP Career.
the same question many of my friends & family will ask all the time.
How every I'm planning to enter in to AI & RPA tools so there also robotics is available with SAP ?
I'd love to take all the credit, but I can't! Moshe Naveh started the original #BIF, and without the support and encouragement from Michelle Crapo, it would not have gotten a reboot.
Plus, the support of the SAP Community team and Craig Cmehil and Katarina Nonhebel - to encourage us to reach out and find new ways (or reboot old ways) of feeling more connected to each other!
Cheers to you all,
