Neptune Software bolsters industry expertise with the appointment of the former Chief Technology Officer of SAP, Björn Goerke to the company’s Board of Directors.
Oslo, Norway, 20th of September 2022 – Neptune Software, the leading SAP-centric, low-code enterprise app development platform, has announced the appointment of Björn Goerke to the Neptune Software Board of Directors. Mr. Goerke will serve as a member of the Neptune Board, becoming its fifth board member.
Björn Goerke has previously worked as the Chief Technology Officer at SAP and acted as the President of the SAP Cloud Platform (SAP BTP). As a member of the Board of Directors, he will provide expertise and advice to Neptune Software as the company continues its growth trajectory on a global scale.
“We are pleased and excited to welcome Björn Goerke to the Neptune Software Board,” said Andreas Grydeland Sulejewski, the Chief Executive Officer of Neptune. “Björn’s deep experience in SAP technology and leadership skills will be invaluable to Neptune Software as we grow our business and pursue our mission of empowering IT departments to deliver tactile business results. As we carry on with this next phase of our company, we know that we need strong, independent voices on our board and Björn brings a wealth of experience and senior leadership which will allow us to achieve global scale.”
Mr. Goerke has a long history of driving success within the software and digital transformation space. His extensive experience at the global software leader SAP, where he worked his way up to the position of Chief Technology Officer after starting in 1988, will further strengthen Neptune Software’s board as the digital experience platform continues to accelerate its innovative and transformational business. Goerke’s career has spanned numerous aspects of enterprise software, from the development of the SAP Cloud Platform to web technologies and working with VW in former work experiences.
“Whether it’s the automation of existing processes or self-services, giving ubiquitous access to IT processes and applications through Web or mobile interfaces, whether it’s an improved customer or employee experience or even completely new business models – digitalization and a great user experience are at the center of it! At the same time, the expert knowledge required to realize such solutions with classical approaches has become scarcer than ever on the market. That’s why I am so excited to work with Neptune on solving the involved challenges through their powerful and easy-to-use low-code/no-code solution,” states Goerke.
Mr.Goerke values that Neptune Software acts as a bridge which connects SAP developers to modern and hybrid technologies, providing both IT and business professionals the tools to digitize and optimize processes and user interfaces with ease.
Björn Goerke’s deep experience with UI and web technologies comes as a great benefit to Neptune Software as its enterprise app development platform, Neptune DXP, focuses on the use of web technologies to deliver hybrid web applications and Progressive Web Applications.
“Björn’s leadership, creativity, as well as the deep respect of the SAP developer community brings us a new level of creativity, a fresh perspective, and we are truly looking forward to his guidance and advice,” said Ole-André Haugen, the CTO of Neptune Software.
