Congratulations to the 10th anniversary SAP Innovation Awards 2023 winners!

In April 1972, entrepreneurs Dietmar Hopp, Hasso Plattner, Claus Wellenreuther, Klaus Tschira, and Hans-Werner Hector started an amazing innovation journey, which culminated in SAP’s 50th anniversary celebration in 2022.

Together with our customers and partners, we are happy to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the SAP Innovation Awards. This award program extends the co-founders’ vision to create positive economic, environmental, and social impact; help the world run better; and improve people’s lives. 

From the very beginning, this program has recognized the achievements of future-minded organizations and individuals with fresh perspectives that have harnessed the power of the latest SAP products and technologies to achieve:

Sustainability and purpose by creating opportunities to accelerate climate action, regenerative economies, and prosperous communities.

Data-driven decision-making by enabling effective business processes and real-time information flows across business networks, supply chains, and value chains.
