Tina Rosario presenting

The event took place on the 27th of June, 2019, at the SAP offices in Munich. It was a very sunny day, with temperatures of over 30°C. Even with our city full of beer gardens and many summer festivals during this time of the year, our event was booked out, and 70 people joined us.

We had an introduction from the SAP Business Women Network in Munich, with Rosemary Ismalou, Alina Popa and Angelika Dallmayer.

Then Tina Rosario, SAP Chief Data Officer for Europe and Women in Big Data EMEA President, delivered a keynote around Big Data Trends. She explained her key takeaways from her conversations with other CDOs and CTOs in Europe. For example, she elaborated on the new trends in platforms, intelligence, streaming and regulations. She also talked about the concept of data citizens, who are now essential elements in a successful data strategy.

Tina was followed by Astrid Neumann and Nahia Orduna, who presented the Munich Chapter, current initiatives, and why now is a great moment to grow your skills in data: there are many opportunities out there for your talent!
