My Interview with Maggie Buggie, SVP, Global Head of SAP Leonardo Services

In this episode I have the honor of interviewing SAP’s SVP, Global Head of SAP Leonardo Services, Maggie Buggie, in SAP’s offices just outside of Heathrow Airport on the outskirts of London.   Maggie discusses how SAP works with customers to first understand their business objectives before ever talking about the power of an intelligent enterprise, and how SAP’s Leonardo services could offer value.  Intelligence must have a focus and a goal to provide value.

SAP’s Leonardo Services focus on helping customers adopt an intelligent enterprise, being successful with their projects, and enabling the SAP ecosystem and their customers to be successful.  Enjoy!

Digital Expert Interviews: Ian Bresnahan, CEO Itential on Digital Transformation in Networking

In this episode, I have the privilege of interviewing the co-founder and CEO of Itential, Ian Bresnahan, on the role of networks in helping and/or hindering digital transformation initiatives.  Digital transformation is often closely related to making a company more agile – able to act and react to changing customer and market requirements quickly.  Networks are what connects all the different systems and processes together, so having the ability to quickly change systems and processes utilizing networks takes special planning, solutions and strategies.   I found this topic fascinating and am sure you will to.
