SAP has appointed Julia White as chief marketing and solutions officer. White joins SAP after a 20 year tenure at Microsoft, where she led product marketing for Microsoft Azure over the past five years. Previously, she was responsible for product marketing for Microsoft Office 365 during the transition to the cloud.
