Here’s my conversation with two execs from SAP, CTO Juergen Mueller and COO Christian Klein, and episode 7 of “Cloud Wars Top 10 Executive Insights.” As the tech companies in our Cloud Wars Top 10 rankings drive transformation not just in individual corporations but also in entire global industries, it’s essential for business executives to understand the strategic intentions of each of these vendors. That’s what this new limited series is all about.
Episode 7: SAP
CTO Juergen Mueller and COO Christian Klein provide insight into how the #4 cloud vendor in the world is thinking about digital transformation and cloud migrations, about Experience Management and the Intelligent Enterprise, and what comes next for the business.
Juergen and I look at why Qualtrics was both a game-changing acquisition and a very simple integration. Juergen also explains that SAP is not competing with the cloud hyperscalers—they’re in a “co-opetition.” In my conversation with Christian, we hear how SAP has the ability to connect the pieces of the Intelligent Enterprise. Christian also describes how all industries are undergoing a huge transformation—and why SAP is uniquely positioned to help them transform through new business models, data analytics, and AI.
