Having joined the SAP AppHaus Network in 2019, we’ve gained a goldmine of best practices and useful tips to share with our colleagues.

Internal workshops and creative sessions are gaining popularity among cross-functional teams in our company. For three years in the SAP AppHaus Network, we managed to introduce DT practices to the team, ensuring teamwork and a productive environment for creating innovative human-centered solutions.
Teamwork Drives Innovations
At the meetup, the partners not only shared their expertise and latest trends but also immersed themselves in the design thinking practices. The teams had plenty of workshops discussing up-to-date business use cases. The importance of innovation-first strategy for businesses was among the workshops’ highlights.

Sustainability Was Another Key Topic
Sustainability-based approach to business was the key headliner of SAP AppHaus Network meetup. SAP T&I Chief Operating Officer Anja Schneider described the strategic view of SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) as the foundation for a sustainable enterprise. She emphasized that close collaboration with the partners is crucial to realizing the full potential of SAP BTP and ensuring the customers' success. Glenn Gonzalez, CTO, SAP Germany, also spoke about SAP's sustainable solutions and their role in ensuring sustainability in the global context.
Besides, sustainability issues were discussed during workshop sessions. For example, the partners generated ideas for optimizing pizza baking and selling processes to contribute to sustainable food consumption.
