Dave Maloney is the North American Vice President for the SAP Business Technology Platform and is helping to lead SAP’s transformation to the Cloud. Dave is focused on helping customers get more from their investment in SAP by leveraging the Business Technology Platform across line-of-business applications. Accelerating Cloud adoption & renewals is Dave’s measure of success – including SAP Store, Solution Extension & Solution Integration partners. Dave started his career as an engineer – from remediating hazardous waste sites to supporting the design of US Embassies but quickly migrated towards software through the utilization of Geographic Information Systems. He subsequently joined a string of successful software startups from Pivotal Software to Blue Titan (which became Akana, Rogue Wave and is now Perforce). Dave joined SAP as part of the Product Lifecycle Management team with a focus on what is now SAP Enterprise Project and Portfolio Management. He was tapped to lead the go-to-market for the product but, when SAP acquired Business Objects, was enlisted as part of the integration team. Dave was a founding member of SAP’s first Center of Excellence for Data & Analytics and was instrumental in driving the adoption of BusinessObjects analytics & reporting. When SAP’s in-memory database “HANA” launched, Dave moved into the Southeast Region and was responsible for HANA and SAP’s Data & Analytics portfolio at strategic accounts.
