    Episode 87: Can business transformation be “fun and games”? – Bill Bowers, Saurabh Choudhuri & Nabeel Siddiqui

    Episode 87: Can business transformation be “fun and games”? – Bill Bowers, Saurabh Choudhuri & Nabeel Siddiqui

    This episode of SAP Experts Podcast is a full-circle moment for me. That’s because the very first episode I ever hosted, by myself, for SAP Experts Podcast was about gamified approaches being a game changer in business consulting and learning. In that episode, I discussed how SAP uses gamification to collaborate with our customers, while enabling Business Value Identification.
    And in today’s episode, we revisit that topic, but this time we take the leap from theoretical to practical. Today we will talk about how the SAP S/4HANA Virtual Board Game simplifies the solution discovery, as well as the business value identification for our current customers and prospective customers. And not just that, but this gamified approach also provides useful, tangible outcomes to the players.
    Which is why, today, I am joined by the brains behind this gamified approach, Saurabh Choudhuri.
    Saurabh has over 13 years of Sales, Presales, Consulting & Agile Coaching experience in the IT industry, across various global firms. Saurabh joined SAP in 2011 as a “Management Intern” and during his tenure, has worked on many key customer facing projects like SAP ByDesign product launch, Ariba Sales and today, Saurabh is part of the SAP S/4HANA Go-To-Market & Solution Management, as the Global Director leading the Gamified SAP Value Discovery Experience track.
    Saurabh also has an entrepreneurial spirit and has cofounded 2 .COM companies. He has an MBA from Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore and executive management diploma in Leadership & Strategy from Harvard Business School. On a personal note, Saurabh enjoys spending time with his 2 little girls & wife and trying local cuisines while travelling.
    We are also joined by two returning guests Bill Bowers and Nabeel Siddiqui. Because a radical, innovative approaches like this one require leadership and teamwork to become a reality, which is what Bill, Nabeel and yours truly, provided.
    As always, my name Akshi Mohla, and you’re listening to SAP Experts Podcast.

    Episode 83: SAP Hypergrowth and startups: The Perfect Match – Jan Gutknecht

    Guest: Jan Gutknecht, Co-Founder SAP Hypergrowth Engagement
    Host: Timo Deiner, Office of the CTO SAP Germany
    What are you thinking about when you hear SAP and startups? David vs Goliath? Nokia vs Apple – and who has the role of Nokia in this comparison? Or is it a perfect match? Startups have great -mostly purpose driven- ideas to make the world better and SAP’s mission is to help the world run better. Does an early-stage startup need SAP S/4HANA or any other SAP solution to reach its next level? We think yes. And we have a dedicated team at SAP which helps startups, so called hypergrowth startups, to boost their company together with SAP.
    My today’s guest is Jan Gutknecht. He is Co-Founder of the SAP Hypergrowth Engagement and we are talking about four pillars on startup engagements: language, speed, challenges and cultures.

    All of that on this episode of the SAP Experts Podcast.
