My Exciting SAP Work is a Gateway to the World

Street lights


Sixty team members from across the globe. Multiple languages and a plethora of diverse backgrounds. And yet, our Accenture Technology SAP team operates like one big, global family.

Innovation doesn’t discriminate
I decided to pursue a career in technology because it’s fast-changing and the field is open and accepting of all backgrounds and cultures. It doesn’t matter where you’re from.

After working as an SAP instructor, I was ready for a new challenge. I wanted to use my skills on real-world, global projects. Joining Accenture was a big turning point in my career. Working directly with clients and developing solutions to their business challenges is very exciting.

In my role, I focus on SAP Business Integration with engaging projects across a variety of industries. We use new technologies, such as SAP S/4HANA and SuccessFactors.

One example of this work is an end-to-end SAP system roll-out for a client that needed accurate, real-time accounting reports from branches all over the world. I was responsible for the South Korea branch, where I managed sales and distribution and material management. I led the entire end-to-end project, from capacity requirements planning (CRP), functional design and testing to implementation and go-live support.

Multiple languages and skill sets, but one common goal
My team at Accenture is diverse, with an even gender split of men and women. We learn from each other’s attitudes, work styles and skills. Most of us speak at least three languages, but we come together to speak one common language for success. We integrate a variety of backgrounds and cultures, and we also integrate business needs in order to lead our clients’ transformation to digital.

Much like a family, we support and guide each other. Once, a managing director on one of my projects told me that to succeed as a consultant, I need to “be confident and not afraid of failure.” It’s okay to make mistakes; our team is always there to support you.

Join an industry-leading global team that allows you to be yourself while harnessing the power of SAP to transform the world’s top organizations.
