The new offering, NEC Global Localization Package for SAP Business ByDesign, will leverage the ERP cloud solution from SAP and the end-to-end cloud deployment capabilities from NEC and will enable subsidiaries of large corporations and small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) to improve efficiency and gain insights into real-time enterprise-wide operations.
This OEM agreement is the first of its kind worldwide regarding SAP Business ByDesign. At the initial stage, NEC plans to roll out the new offering in key South East Asia markets. NEC also intends to develop valued-added localization functionalities, which will be integrated with SAP Business ByDesign. NEC also targets to provide its new cloud services in the several countries on three different continents where the solution is already available.
“NEC has been providing SAP-based packaged solutions to a wide range of customers that are expanding their business presence globally,” said Yutaka Noguchi, general manager, Enterprise Solutions Development Division, NEC Corp. “However, we also expect strong demand for solutions that are easy to implement for small to midsize businesses when they are seeking to expand into emerging markets. To tap on the growing business opportunities, NEC will work closely with SAP to integrate its cloud business expertise and assets with SAP Business ByDesign.”
