Winner of the Hasso Plattner Founders’ Award
Put the customer at the center of everything: We took this to heart and flipped the script on how SAP works with customers.
This new engagement model was created in less than 90 days, and brings together SAP solutions, consumer experience, and virtual reality in a tangible way to redefine how to put the customer first.
With this New Customer eXperience we won the Hasso Plattner Founders’ Award. This is the highest employee recognition at SAP, awarded annually by the CEO.
Rather than “just another PowerPoint presentation,” Immersive eXperience is also far more than a conference room. Using advanced touch and display technologies, and customized content, it provides a 360-degree view of how an intelligent business could be run, and aims to immerse customers in their own story.
The SAP Immersive Experience allows us to immerse our customers within their own story. In doing so, we give a context to what we show and tell, a context which is instantly recognizable and familiar. The SAP Immersive Experience puts the customer at the center of the experience, not the software.

Inspiring. Energizing. Professional. Have you ever felt so energized after a presentation that you want to start brainstorming and working immediately after? That is the feeling after seeing Mark Raben on stage. I have had the pleasure of working directly with Mark and listen to him on different occasions; delivering presentations on all sorts of topics and what struck me the most was how through storytelling Mark was able to keep the audience 100% engaged and awake during the entire presentation, but above all the fact that we only retain 5% of information becomes a myth. Looking forward to collaborating more in the future.

For more than ten years, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing how Mark developed from an IT expert with a flair for public speaking to a professional speaker. Furthermore, he has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the IT world. He combines this with his solid experience in being an interlocutor on board level addressing topics like innovation and change management. His knowledge of the IT world may seem self-evident if you take his position as CTO into consideration. However, that does not necessarily prove that you also have a clear vision. Mark has that vision,accompanied by the ability to share this vision and knowledge with his audience in a creative and inspiring way. Always well prepared and thoughtful and with the rare talent to listen to the audience. After a long day of conferences on your way home, there is a big chance that in particular Mark’s presentation gives you food for thought.
Trainer/coach who helps individuals, teams and organisations to grow their commercial results sometimes up to 50%.
