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 😉

Some of my Photography Skills, I know it’s not that good but my learning steps.
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.
