Research and Innovation at a Glance

Driving business impact through innovation


By combining our strengths of applied research and product development, we anticipate and explore emerging IT trends and transfer innovations into market-ready prototypes, product enhancements, and new solutions. As part of SAP’s board area Technology Innovation Platform, research and innovation teams evaluate and prepare business opportunities that inspire both enterprises and end users.


Activities span from co-innovation with individual customers to collaborative research in consortia with industry and academia. With teams close to markets and talents on all five continents, the research conducted is a powerful driver of innovation for SAP and its ecosystem and opens the world up to new possibilities thanks to innovations in IT.


In April 2013, the former centrally organized research teams have been integrated into TIP development areas to bring our research and development closer together.


We hope that you find the SAP Research & Innovation space on SCN to be informative and interactive!

We look forward to your contributions!
