We are Women in SAP. We master challenges, are built to evolve, and accelerate transformation. We break boundaries to make an impact by shattering traditional beliefs, redefining the art of the possible, creating a new future of how, why and where business gets done. Deloitte and business technology forces us to keep breaking the boundaries of the world we know. This could be you.
What are you learning right now, and what can you learn next? Questions like these are frequently top of mind for Mónica Cortés, a Deloitte SAP Consulting Leader in the energy industry, within Deloitte Spain. Since beginning her journey with Deloitte about 15 years ago, she has learnt a lot—about SAP, about what makes Deloitte special, and about how her own skills and interests align with business transformation.
Simply put: The learning is never-ending—and Mónica is OK with that. “I love that I never stop learning, because technology changes fast, and I can find an interesting challenge at any time, any moment,” she says. Digital business transformation. Cloud. Automation. There’s no shortage of topics to explore while working with Deloitte clients, helping them leverage SAP solutions to make better business decisions, run their organisations more effectively, and unleash measurable value.
Interested in computers from an early age, Mónica has long felt at home in Deloitte Consulting’s global business and technology team. She even thinks of her Deloitte SAP team as a “second family”—one that is learning side by side with her, constantly growing along with the evolution of SAP technologies. Why SAP? It was always a natural fit for her—one that allowed her to excel while helping Deloitte clients. “I was able to understand the power of it and I decided to focus my career,” she says. “I wanted to do something big.”
Today, many of the big things she focuses on involve sustainability—working with Deloitte SAP customers to turn data into insights that can likely help them operate more efficiently and do their part to make a positive impact on the future. That kind of work has been a rewarding part of her Deloitte experience—along with the ability to keep learning by working on projects around the world, meeting a variety of people and supporting organisations across industries.
During her years at Deloitte, she has seen the number of women in SAP grow steadily and she believes there are plenty of opportunities for women. The way forward for people embarking on SAP-related careers? According to Mónica, the key is to remain curious and open to learning new things—to keep up with the rapidly evolving innovation landscape.
