Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. The world of SAP has evolved quite a bit over the last decade. Tell us about your background and what led you to focus on bringing SAP to the cloud.
Topic 2 - A decade ago, SAP was very focused on this new HANA database and most people still thought of them as an ERP company. Since then, they have bought a lot of companies, especially in the SaaS space (SuccessFactors, Concur, Hipmonk, Qualtrics, etc.). Can you give us a high-level overview of what relationship SAP has with their customers these days?
Topic 3 - Lemongrass is focused on helping customers move SAP to the AWS Cloud. What types of applications are being moved, and why are customers moving them?
Topic 4 - Lemongrass talks about 5 Waves of Innovations to get SAP into AWS (Migrate, FinOps/SysOps/DevOps, 4/HANA, Big Data, AI). Where are most customers on that journey today? Does it tend to be consistent across industries?
Topic 5 - AWS often talks about a “shared responsibility model” for application-availability or security. How does that model apply to SAP applications, and what role does Lemongrass play for customers on an on-going basis?
Topic 6 - Have you seen the pandemic change how companies are looking at their SAP environments and whether or not it makes them do more in the cloud?
