Director - SAP Services & Innovation
Over the past few years since he started working with Clematis Technology Solutions, Raghu Boddu has almost become a household name within the business IT software community. This is in part due to his tech background, forensic solutions expertise, and deep experience in SAP and Governance & Compliance Applications Security, and in part due to his very accessible and friendly personality.
He is a master of his craft, and is yet willing to learn the up-to-the-minute developments in SAP technology innovations and products. A unique feature of his approach to business and marketing technology is that he thinks outside the box 24/7, a thinking that is of inestimable value to his staff, clients, and the society at large. With offices in the US and clients overseas, global thinking and astute data analysis come naturally to him.
He has honed his subject expertise for over two decades, following his post-graduate education in Business Administration, in the areas of:
SAP GRC Access Control (Security) 5.3/10

When not busy with technology, Mr. Boddu is a collector of stamps, coins and bank notes. However, there is a well-articulated philosophy behind his philatelic and numismatic activities as well. He focuses on certain themes such as flora, fauna, and the environment. There is a method to everything that he does.
One last word: Mr. Boddu is that rare individual who believes in balancing high technology with social responsibility, and profits with pleasure. He is equally at home in his Center of Excellence in technology solutions and charitable organizations like Snehamitra and several educational initiatives to uplift the lot of poor children. He is constantly endeavoring to improve the bottom line of his business clients on the one hand, while also striving to improve the lot of the lower strata of society on the other. No matter what he does, the one thought that is uppermost in his mind is “innovation, innovation, innovation,” befitting a tech-inspired lifestyle. The quick success and wide reputation of Clematis bear testimony to this.
