Simon Carpenter

I’ve nearly 4 decades in the IT sector, 29 of which have been with SAP. I’m proud to have worked with some of the world’s best organisations helping them understand how SAP solutions can contribute to their growth and success. I’m an advocate for leveraging information to create a better world for all and conscious of the fact that each organisation has unique challenges requiring a nuanced approach to technology adoption.

I have led SAP Presales and Value Advisory teams in their role of showcasing how SAP solutions create value. As a Marketing Director my team helped establish SAP’s presence across Africa. I’ve also led sales teams where revenue growth was the primary accomplishment.

Before moving to the U.K. in 2019 I was the CTA for SAP Africa, leading SAP Africa’s digital transformation initiatives, providing direction to SAP’s customers and partners, and evangelising SAP’s strategy for the Intelligent Enterprise.

I’ve spoken at numerous local and international conferences and universities on a wide range of topics, have written chapters for two University of South Africa  textbooks; (CONTEMPORARY ISSUES IN OPERATIONS AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT) and am a previous award winner at the SAPICS conference (for a paper on EDI).

I am currently in the RISE with SAP EMEA North team where we help our customers accelerate business innovation by exploiting the advantages of cloud computing.
