Enterprise Architects play a crucial role in orchestrating the development of a holistic enterprise architecture model that supports established enterprise goals.  

SAP has strategically decided to significantly invest in an SAP Enterprise Architecture Advisory Team. Primarily, the role of these Enterprise Architects is to guide our key SAP clients in the MEE region on their SAP transformation journey, especially those initiating a RISE with SAP transition. 


Our approach starts by comprehending their existing Enterprise Architecture (supported by tools like LeanIX or SAP Signavio), and then guides them towards a North Star target architecture state. This ideal target architecture aligns their strategy and required business capabilities with SAP’s solutions and adheres to a Clean Core backed by SAP's Business Technology Platform. To support this approach, we utilize reliable and proven Enterprise Architecture methodologies and frameworks. 


With our approach we help SAP’s customers achieve their strategic goals by enhancing their business transformation with our perspective on Enterprise Architecture and SAP’s North Star target architecture. This will facilitate innovation and the adoption of new business models and technologies, thus increasing the acceptance and usage of SAP’s solution portfolio. 

If you have a deep understanding of Enterprise Architecture, and can guide organizations towards strategic business transformation, join and help us shape the future of our key customers!
