Is this you? Hello SAP (Technology-) Domain Architect!


Yes, we confirm that we are looking for a new colleague. Not just anyone. We would love to meet YOU if you are a seasoned SAP Technology Architect and want to embark on a journey of becoming the Domain Architect of the SAP Technology at Air France – KLM.


AF/KLM has a challenging job for you as a seasoned SAP Technology Architect. You will focus on the latest technologies. SAP Cloud architecture, Mobile, Web apps, IoT, hybrid cloud integration, master data management; just to name of few. You will be part of a small team of SAP Technology architects, who interact closely with the Enterprise Architects in the CIO Office and the SAP teams in the business.




What are you going to do?

Because of your ample experience, you understand that there are many stakeholders in a large company such as ours. You can manage the interests of these stakeholders and you are able to create momentum.


The SAP Domain Architect (SDA) ensures a coherent, flexible, and cost-efficient SAP Technology Platform in accordance with AFKL group-wide standards and guidelines and in line with the SAP Technology Roadmap issued by the CTO.

The SDA explains the business relevance of SAP product developments and -strategy, acts as a source of knowledge, actively shares knowledge of SAP technology, and advises on it.

Translates the architecture principles and guidelines from CIO Office into an SAP domain architecture. Ensures compliance with these architecture regulations within the SAP domain.


This combination creates a complex challenge of which careful yet cost effective considerations are of great importance: 20% of our business processes depend on a properly functioning SAP landscape embedded in our complex enterprise architecture. Some statistics: 125 productive environments, 135 IT colleagues working on this daily, 10.000+ users. A landscape that is moving to the cloud and to S4.
The team may be asked to contribute to projects and is the principal driver behind several smaller (supporting) projects, but these are not the primary focus, they are a means to an end. The role is about providing an SAP Technology Platform that meets the requirements and ambitions of the business domains. Now and in the foreseeable future.
