Ekta Sengupta

SAP Technology Consulting Senior Manager

Chicago, Illinois


"I work shoulder to shoulder with the SAP development team, helping co-develop new platforms. It’s exciting to be driving market capabilities and applying them practically."

What I do

I have a passion for fashion, and I love that my role helps get the latest looks into shops faster than ever. I’ve spent most of my career working within the supply chain area of SAP helping fashion clients improve the way they execute processes and access and interpret information to enable growth. SAP is the platform on top of which I create adaptive solutions to optimize supplier relationships, reduce costs, improve forecasting and meet changing consumer expectations and demands in optimum time.

A day in my life

Every day is different but it’s always focused around people and learning. I manage and direct the work of my team and others to achieve the common goals of a project. We partner with some of the largest companies in retail on complex programs. Making sure everyone understands how their role supports our big-picture objective is crucial.

I am passionate about understanding what’s best for each client and delivering improvements where they make the most difference. I enjoy problem solving, so some of my best days are participating in design-thinking workshops. During these sessions, we work with clients and use different techniques to understand the real problem that needs solving. Investing this time upfront to ask the right questions makes sure our investments are focused.

Collaboration with different teams across technologies, disciplines and across the different stages of a project makes sure we deliver leading, integrated and impactful solutions. Through Accenture’s Formula One partnership with SAP I work shoulder to shoulder with the SAP development team, helping co-develop new platforms. We’ve been embedding in-memory computing through their S/4 HANA solution. It’s exciting to be driving market capabilities and applying them practically.

In my spare time, one of the things I do to keep fit is boxing. I love the intensity and the work ethic it instills in me—to always make it to the finish no matter how tough it gets. This attitude overflows into my work environment; I approach each problem in the office with the same rigor and intensity as in the boxing ring.

My advice

Take every day as a learning opportunity. Be it through client work, seminars, webinars, internal blogs or news forums, I’ve found that there are so many avenues available to continue to grow my knowledge and increase my market relevance. The most difficult thing is carving out time to keep up to date. Try to spend an hour each day reading about what’s happening in the market and learning something new, even if it means having to say “no” to something else. It can be overwhelming staying on top of the latest trends, but it’s worth it. I often find myself referencing something I read just a few days before to a client. It keeps me on trend.
