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 !

    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


    1. My phone is always on – and pls don’t hesitate to call me anytime buddy
