In this month’s Business Chief Europe magazine, SAP discusses the best ways to succeed in digital transformation
(Norwich, UK, 13/12/2019)
This month in Business Chief Europe magazine, we talk to Fawaz Al-Nouri, General Manager Transformation Acceleration Programs, EMEA, at SAP.
Transformation Acceleration Programs (TAP) offers customers the necessary expertise to achieve a successful spend management transformation, as Al-Nouri explains. “SAP’s purpose has always been about helping the world run better and improving people’s lives. In support of this purpose, TAP was formed to help businesses define their transformation roadmap and how to move from their current outdated systems – where they're not getting the most value they can – to new technologies that benefit and improve the way they do business and in turn achieve their vision to better serve their end customers.”
Culture must always be a consideration, as Al-Nouri explains. “It's important to understand the client’s culture, because every customer is different. What we find in cloud transformation is that transitioning to a cloud mindset by moving away from on-premise customisations to standard processes in the cloud is key. Therefore, change management to ease this transition is a huge aspect that has to be taken into consideration.”
Al-Nouri further highlights the urgency of the task of digital transformation. “In the current digital age, every company is under pressure to achieve digital transformation, simply because of all the technologies that we have around us. These technologies are connecting people, the internet, and the physical world like never before. When everything is connected business as usual becomes a thing of the past and the transformation of many industries needs to accelerate,” says Al-Nouri.
