Haseman Honored with SAP’s Majdi Najm Award
IBM Professor of Information Technology Management Dave Haseman has been honored by the SAP University Alliance Program with the Majdi Najm Outstanding Service Award. The Najm award recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves by advancing the use of SAP in the classroom and collaborating with faculty members from other SAP University Alliances campuses.
“Dave Haseman is a pioneer in the SAP University Alliances program, with a rich history of supporting faculty around the world,” says Alexander McLeod, Program Manager for SAP University Alliances. “He has mentored many of the North American faculty, developed curriculum, written books and managed the UCC at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.”
Haseman is the director of the SAP University Competence Center (UCC) at the Lubar School of Business, one of only five UCCs throughout the world. The center provides SAP hosting services and technical support to universities that participate in the University Alliance. Currently, the center hosts nearly 150 universities, operating over 50 production SAP systems and utilizing its own private cloud environment to deliver SAP to over 100,000 students a year.
Haseman has been involved in the development and use of SAP NetWeaver tools, including Portal, Visual Composer, and NetWeaver Development Studio, and has developed the global SAP NetWeaver curriculum used by the SAP University Alliance. His current project efforts focus on developing SAP mobile curriculum for use by the University Alliance.
Also director of the School’s Center for Technology Innovation, Haseman is co-author of the recent book SAP for Mobile Development (with Ross Hightower). He has long history of teaching, publication, and consulting in multiple facets of information technology management.
The award was presented at the SAP Academic Conference Americas 2014 in late March. SAP is the largest enterprise resource planning company in the world.
