On the Cover

Business demands have been clarified over the past year and a half: Planning cycles have been dramatically shortened. Digitization has been accelerated. And there is a need for constant and immediate views into customer demand and supply chains. As a result, many businesses have had to make significant operational shifts, and many of these changes have been enabled by technology.

The inaugural edition of Technology Executive Forum magazine focuses on stories about the people behind the technology — IT leaders driving transformation within their organizations. These leaders say that visibility, agility, flexibility, and efficiency have become cornerstones of their strategy and technology architectures. They have found these elements to be essential to push for change and support new business models and processes. The featured thought leadership article in this issue explains how SAP is supporting organizations’ need to prioritize innovation agendas with its RISE with SAP offering. We hear from executives of companies like Ingevity, New England Biolabs, and Thames Water about how their use of technologies like automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning — as well as investments in SAP S/4HANA and cloud migration projects — are helping to drive business outcomes. We also learn about how these leaders had to change their management approach to accommodate remote workforces.

Additional articles and features in this edition include:

  • How one county council is modernizing technology and its SAP landscape to deliver more to its residents;
  • A look into SAPinsider’s recent research, including where SAP customers plan to reinvest in the coming year; and
  • How one oil and gas company is transforming into an integrated energy conglomerate.
