The stylish and highly innovative digital magazine brings SAP’s rich history to life and enables contemporary witnesses to tell their stories. Feature stories explain SAP’s influence on business and information technology, show how SAP software increasingly influences people’s lives, and provide a glimpse into the future of IT.

The first chapter, “Evolution,” deals with the founding and the rise of SAP while the next chapter, “Impact,” focuses on megatrends such as urbanization and digitalization, and provides examples of how SAP software can help master these global challenges. The third chapter, “Perspectives,” explains how SAP makes use of technology trends such as cloud and in-memory computing for its own benefit and the benefit of its customers. In addition, renowned IT experts such as Joshua Greenbaum voice their opinion on SAP’s success.
