Be careful of the Cookie Jar Monster…

Hello Familia,

Although we may not have met personally, I’m excited to have the opportunity to get to know you all. I recently founded a company that I believe was born out of a series of unfortunate events. While I can’t say that I’m thankful for those events, they certainly humbled me and filled me with gratitude. On a lighter note, I have a serious love for chocolate chip cookies. I enjoy them so much that I wouldn’t be surprised if I found myself sleepwalking to the cookie jar in the middle of the night.

Each of us has something or someone that we hold close to our hearts. We take care of them, encourage them, lend a helping hand when they need it, and sometimes trust them more than we should. As a community of SAP, we have something unique that sets us apart – a rare gem, a unicorn, a shooting star. While my emotional intelligence is one of my strengths, it can also be a double-edged sword. As I embark on a new chapter in my life as a small business owner, I’ve come to realize the importance of safeguarding my jar of chocolate chip cookies.

Deciding, determining and creating a storage account to safeguard my chocolate chip cookie (business) recipe suddenly makes Cloud Computing not a foreign language to learn and understand. For my business to deliver a strong infrastructure for the security of my clients through computing services, including servers, storage, databases, networking, software, and analytics, over the internet is imperative.  

As it allows every individual of organization to access computing resources on-demand, without the need for on-premises infrastructure and hardware. With peace of mind that secret recipes are protected and those we made a mission statement are safe. 

As I work towards building scalability, flexibility, lowering costs, and increasing efficiency in my business, I find comfort in the fact that SAP has welcomed me into its community. They say that family isn’t always the one you share blood with – sometimes it’s the one that opens doors, provides support, and shares values. In this case, SAP has become an extension of my family, and I am grateful for their support. I challenge you to ask yourself the same question I asked myself: Is your chocolate chip cookie recipe properly secured against potential threats? Take the necessary steps to protect it and ensure its longevity.

I conclude my firs blog with this, why does it feel like I just walked into the cafeteria on my first day of school. Hoping, I chose the right outfit, hair is on point, and that it is enough to make some new friends? Phew, glad it is just an analogy to describe how excited I feel about being a part of the SAP Familia. Best of wishes to you all.
