Craig Himmelberger – Director & Principal Analyst
A product and strategy leader at top global ERP providers, Craig Himmelberger brings depth and international perspective to Finance, Treasury, Quote-to-Cash, and Source-to-Pay system designs and implementation strategies. Excelling in both application and technical domain areas, Craig is an accomplished analyst, advisory board member, and customer advocate.
Craig has played a foundational role in successive waves of ERP and Finance innovation. He understands the importance of achieving actionable insight from technology investments, as well as maintaining an accountant’s eye on costs, positive ROI, and measurable benefits. He was a pioneer in user-prioritized design and development initiatives at McCormack & Dodge/Dun & Bradstreet Software, PeopleSoft, SAP, and Oracle, among others, to ensure that customer/user business priorities can be always reflected in how technology is designed and applied.
Prior to joining 3Sixty Insights, Craig was the foundational designer for the ERP, Finance, and GRC research practices at SAPinsider, building on his decades of experience within the SAP ecosystem to define and organize how the voice of the customer is reflected and amplified. He came to that role from a board-level advisory position at Trovata, the first widely-available, standardized software technology to leverage available bank API’s to escape the failure of batch-oriented ERP approaches based on yesterday’s bank statements to access, organize, and build real-time insight from transactional finance data using natural language processing and AI-driven Business Intelligence.
Craig’s ERP application vendor credentials speak for themselves. Most recently at Oracle, where he won the 2018 Oracle Fintech Design Jam by consensus of all participating teams, Craig was a leader in the move to bring professional product management, and user-prioritized design principles, to Oracle’s ERP Cloud suite of applications. Prior to Oracle, Craig spent over a decade in SAP’s solution and industry product areas, leading Finance, ERP, and Treasury teams to firmly establish SAP as the clear leader among top international organizations for addressing key strategic business challenges.
