About 100 decision-makers from southwestern Germany met at SAP headquarters in Walldorf, Germany. Attendees were alumni of famous universities like INSEAD (Institut Européen d’Administration des Affaires), Harvard University, and University of St. Gallen. The evening was dedicated to emerging markets such as the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) and to discuss to what degree innovation is driving change in these markets, or if these markets were driving innovation themselves.
As a world leader in enterprise software with a large development center in India, support centers in China and Brazil, and research centers in Africa and around the globe, SAP is not only experiencing these trends, but also thriving on the opportunities that they provide.
Angelika Dammann, member of the SAP Executive Board, opened the evening with some words on the importance of talent for innovation in the high-tech industry. “Without good people you cannot be innovative or successful,” she emphasized at the beginning of her presentation. According to Dammann, the future requires people with a mission who are focused on their ideas.
