Just To Keep You Posted – I have joined SAP, And Hung Up The SAP Mentor Shirt

Happy 2013 everyone !

So as I mentioned in my post in December 2012, I joined SAP and successfully finished 2 days. Today is Day 3, and I am typing this on a brand new Lenovo T520 I got yesterday 🙂
Right on day 1, I got to meet a lot of friends here in Palo Alto – including a few that were surprised to find me walking around with an SAP badge.


All is good so far – and I am finding my way around without too much trouble. Everyone has been super helpful.
Special thanks to Aiaz Kazi and Kaustav Mitra for going out of their way to make sure I am well taken care of – thanks guys !

I have decided to leave the SAP Mentor Program and join the Mentor alumni gang.


Being an SAP mentor is something I treasured from the day Mark Finnern called me to say I have been selected to be a mentor – I think about 4 years ago. I have all the mentor shirts from that time – and will keep them all too, probably with the alumni patch on them. Being a mentor is a part of my identity too – so it was not an easy decision for me. But being an SAP employee now, and being less active in the program directly off late – I think it is the right time for me to step down, and let Mark and team have an opportunity to bring yet another well deserving candidate into the wolfpack. I will of course continue to be a big cheer leader for the program, and will be fully accessible to help mentors any way I can. I won’t be a stranger. And – I am sure my mentor buddies will continue to provide me all the help and guidance they have so generously given me over the years. If anything – I expect to be actively mentored by the friendly wolfpack as I get settled into my new role.

Cheers folks – lets all have a great 2013 !

  1. Once a Mentor, always a Mentor. While I’m sad you’re moving onto the Alumni, I totally understand it. But then again, just because you’re an Alumni, it doesn’t mean that your phone stops working! I’ll be in touch, as always. LOL
