"Learning never stops for me. I take online training, read blogs and browse the Internet to know the greatest and latest in SAP and other cloud platforms."

How I put change in motion

A combination of learning, on-the-job training and opportunities to work on multiple projects with a diverse group of people has helped me become a seasoned SAP professional. As a People Analytics SME and a solution architect for SAP SuccessFactors, I work with clients across industries to build powerful SAP solutions that make a positive impact.

In my current role, I enjoy analyzing and translating clients’ business and technical requirements into an architectural blueprint to come up with a solution, empowering companies to transform millions of lives. I also develop SAP-related apps and work on HR analytical tools to bring about better and more informed business decision making. I have been fortunate to be part of Innovation Hub client presentations and to work on innovative solutions for leading companies.

Since May 2020, I have been handling a banking project as a Reporting lead. As the banking industry is process- and compliance-oriented, the project team worked on a hybrid agile methodology. We helped the client amp up their HR processes with our innovative HR solution, transitioning more than 150 HR reports from their legacy HR system to SuccessFactors. Happy with our solution and delivery, the client now banks on us for the future phases of the project. This project gave me an opportunity to collaborate with multiple stakeholders and different teams across geographies.

A day in my life

Each day is a new day for me. My day starts with my son’s charming face, followed by offering prayers and browsing through news updates on Google to catch the latest in the world. My workday starts with checking emails and assigning tasks as per priority. During the day, I interact with clients to understand their business requirements, attend daily scrum calls, develop solutions, brainstorm on innovative ideas and problem solve for my colleagues. I also keep my skills up to date with online training.

Off work, I like to play and paint with my adorable son. Traveling is next on my list and music keeps me going, followed by reading to keep myself updated on trending technologies.

My advice

Be true to yourself and your organization. And work toward the role that you aspire for—hard work and dedication always pay off.
