Imagining the future

When Nikita Luman was growing up in Mumbai, she would often pass by one of Deloitte’s dazzling offices and daydream that she would one day work there. And that was long before she knew anything about Deloitte’s culture, capabilities and collaboration with SAP.

Her real connection to the Deloitte world—and the SAP world—would come years later, after meeting a future Deloitte colleague and learning about the huge opportunity that awaited her. Today, in her role as an SAP analytics specialist at Deloitte Canada, she is still focussed on imagining future possibilities—and helping clients do the same.

In her view, the real power of SAP technology lies in its ability to help leaders understand what is going on in their businesses, to examine current and future trends, and to make powerful decisions for their organisations. Yet, among many people, there’s still a huge misconception about what SAP technology is and what it can do, according to Nikita. “It helps you streamline and automate your day to day business operations,” she says. “It's that simple.”

Her work at Deloitte centres on analytics—an area where simplicity often is critical for things like meaningful dashboards, reports and intelligent automation capabilities. “What I love about my job is being able to help clients be able to solve their problems and provide them with different analytic solutions which exist in SAP—which they don't even know that it exists.”

And that’s coming from someone who did not have any formal training in SAP initially—who just one day jumped into building data models for a client and instantly discovered the power of SAP.

But you don’t have to be a hardcore coder to find your SAP niche, according to Nikita, who says Deloitte actively supports people in discovering and defining their own career journeys. “You could be a functional consultant, you could be a technical consultant, or you could be somebody like me who is into analytics,” she says. “It's such a huge world.”
