Currently Being Moderated

Two weeks ago I visited the SAP offices in Mumbai and Bangalore, and had the chance to meet with customers, partners, press, analysts, and bloggers.  It was an amazing experience for me personally: the culture, the energy, and the opportunity.  I was asked multiple times to try to summarize the SAP India organization and India's impact on SAP.  Given the diversity, it's a difficult thing to do but here are some interesting facts I consolidated:


SAP India

Started in 1996, SAP India is one of the fastest growing companies within SAP worldwide with ~5,500 employees and more than 4,800 customers.

  • SAP India is the third largest subsidiary for SAP in terms of employees.
