The theme at 'SAP Overdrive' was "Business at the Speed of Thought" and the discussions deliberated on how SAP as an industry leader in business software solutions, can play a critical role in helping customers transform their business technology into a strategic lever for competitive differentiation and turn accelerated global change into opportunity for growth.MA Matin, director of IT, IFIC Bank Ltd, delivered the main speech and shared his observations on how the enterprises are leveraging on technology for their growth and advancement. He also expressed the opinion that with the help of right kind of technology, enterprises could accelerate innovation, become more agile and be able to effectively execute strategy and help their workforce embrace change. "Bangladesh's strategic location offers a high growth potential and has seen tremendous developments across segments like logistics, manufacturing, telecom, garments & textiles, pharmaceuticals, constructions, infrastructure, insurance, banking and so on" said Moushumee Basu Roy, regional director, East, SAP India."Today, to tap the global opportunities and to streamline operations, enterprises in Bangladesh are adopting enterprise software solutions.

The length and breadth of its customer base is a reassurance of SAP's expertise and success in catering to the verticals that will derive growth in the region in years to come.
It has always been the case that foreigners spot our potential first and they move fast to tap that potential. Be it telecom, IT, energy, power, banking, pharma, they arrive first to milk our resources and money. Well, beggars can't be choosers, so I am not complaining, what I am wishing for is self-sustainability as early as possible. So that we can reverse the game in near future.
