SAP opens new Oman office
Muscat, December 17, 2012
SAP, a global leader in business software, has opened a new office in Oman as part of the company’s Mena expansion plans.
“Oman is an exciting market for SAP,” said Gergi Abboud, country manager for SAP Gulf.
“This office opening signifies a new level of investment in the country as we seek to expand our ability to help businesses and organizations run better through IT innovation in areas such as analytics, mobility, cloud and in-memory computing.”
The Mena region is at the heart of SAP’s long-term global growth strategy, which includes doubling its addressable market, reaching one billion people and generating global revenue of 20 billion euros ($26.32 billion) by 2015.
SAP is currently in the midst of executing a four-year additional spend plan across Mena.
Highlights include recruiting more than 500 additional employees, tripling the company’s existing consulting capabilities, opening several new offices and expanding the partner ecosystem and the SAP University Alliances program. Additionally, significant increases will be made in the availability of comprehensive, innovative and localized service offerings.
The plans also encompass the region’s IT-specific Training and Development Center, which recently opened at Dubai Silicon City, and will certify more than 2,000 new consultants within the next four years, as well as further accelerate and extend the localization and Arabization of SAP solutions.
The first mover initiative is also structured to benefit the entire Mena region through co-creating and innovating solutions with partners, customers and independent software vendors in fields such as mobility, HANA, cloud, urban management, smart city functionalities, and Islamic banking. – TradeArabia News Service
