JAKARTA, Indonesia — SAP Southeast Asia (NYSE: SAP) today announced the appointment of Andreas Diantoro as Managing Director for PT SAP Indonesia. In this new role, Andreas will be responsible for leading and driving business growth and operations for Indonesia, building on SAP’s success and presence over the past 20 years in the country. He will report directly to Claus Andresen, President and Managing Director of SAP Southeast Asia.
Andreas brings with him over 20 years of experience in the IT industry, and was most recently the President Director at Microsoft Indonesia, where he led business operations and go-to market activities. Prior to joining Microsoft Indonesia in 2012, he held several Managing Director roles at Dell, where he led the enterprise, SMB and public sectors businesses for the South Asia and Developing Markets as well as the consumer segment for ASEAN. Preceding his appointment at Dell, Andreas spent 11 years at HP Indonesia, where he last held the role as Managing Director leading its business operations and growth.
Commenting on the appointment, Claus Andresen, President and Managing Director for SAP Southeast Asia said: “Indonesia plays a significant role in SAP’s growth strategy in Southeast Asia being one of the largest economies in the region. With a growing connectivity and a large population that is extremely active online, there is huge market opportunities for SAP in this country. Over the past year, we have been constantly boosting our capabilities through our leadership, people and the ecosystem across the region. As we kick-off our business in 2018, I am optimistic of our growth prospect and am confident that Andreas will be able to deliver accelerated growth for our business, and drive value for our customers in Indonesia.”
“SAP Indonesia opened its doors to business 20 years ago, and during the two decades of being in operations, the pace of technological change continues to be incremental. Businesses and governments alike need to adapt and keep up with the demands of the digital economy. SAP has proven to be a reliable partner to see organizations in the private and public sectors through these changes and we will continue to support our customers in Indonesia move the needle in digitization.”
Andreas replaces Megawaty Khie, who has taken over the role as Vice President for SAP SuccessFactors in Southeast Asia.
“Indonesia is at an exciting juncture of a digital transformation. The government has explicitly conveyed its plans to focus efforts on boosting the country’s digital economy, which has been outlined in a blueprint that will serve as guide and framework for its digital future. Specifically, the government has identified small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to be the backbone of this vision. SAP has the strength and market credibility to help organisations of any size and segment, from the local SMEs to regional conglomerates, to realise the success of their digital vision. I am excited to be part of the company that will help write the next chapter of Indonesia’s digital future and look forward to working with our customers and partners to support their business growth and success with our technology,” said Andreas Diantoro, Managing Director, SAP Indonesia.
