At SAP, we’ve always known that communication plays a fundamental and strategic role in all aspects of business. And getting it right has never been more important.

A strong strategic communications team is critical to modern business. When a company is good at telling its story to customers, partners, investors and employees, it helps ease the way for other functions to succeed.

So, I’m thrilled to announce a wonderful new leader of SAP’s communications team: Monika Schaller, SAP Chief Communications Officer.
