Becoming a Business Process Expert: Podcast Transcription
Jon Reed with Marco ten Vaanholt, Global Director, SAP BPX Community
Hosted by Jon Franke, News Editor, SearchSAP.com
Download Podcast (Must be Registered and Logged In!)

Jon Reed's Introduction: Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Marco ten Vaanholt on the topic of “Becoming a Business Process Expert.” We released this interview in podcast format. What follows is the transcription of that podcast. I felt strongly about interviewing Marco because more than any other person I spoke with at TechEd, Marco had the most compelling take on how SAP professionals could take the next steps in their skills evolution. As SAP’s technology platform transforms right in front of our eyes, it’s not always easy to understand how to connect our current skills to where SAP is going. In this podcast, I thought Marco did a terrific job of doing just that. Of course, the SAP skills transformation is more of an ongoing discussion than something you can resolve in one sitting. But this podcast definitely helped me to frame the issues in my own mind - I hope it does the same for those who read the transcript or listen to the podcast.

Jon Reed’s Introduction: After TechEd ’07, I had the opportunity to sit down with Krishna Kumar of Enterprise Horizons and do a podcast wrap of the conference. Due to his expert-level understanding of SAP technical trends, Krishna was the perfect person to break down the impact of TechEd ’07. One of the things that sets SAP apart is the passion of those who are part of this so-called “ecosystem.” That’s certainly true of Krishna, and when you read the transcript or listen to the podcast, I think you’ll get a sense of how uniquely insightful Krishna is and how well he can break down SAP technical issues in ways we can all understand.

"I've kept up with your JonERP.com site for a long time and your articles via SearchSAP.com and elsewhere. I just realized a few months ago that you were also the author of the first SAP Consulting book that I read when I decided to take the leap from working at a Utility company to becoming an SAP Consultant. The SAP Consultant Handbook is a staple for any SAP consultant, new or experienced. I just wanted to thank you for the quality work."
