SAP Ariba has announced that it has launched data-centers co-located with SAP in United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, giving companies secure, local access to market-leading solutions they can use to digitize procurement and transform their operations.
SAP Ariba is an American software company specialising in maximising business solutions.
“Technology is fundamentally altering the way that businesses operate,” said Mohammed AlKhotani, General Manager, head of SAP Ariba Middle East and North Africa.
“Companies across the Middle East and North Africa are at the forefront of this digital transformation, and SAP Ariba is committed to delivering innovative solutions that enable them to push the limits of what is possible and move their businesses forward.”
SAP Ariba offers a comprehensive range of cloud-based solutions that companies can use to manage the entire source-to-settle process with greater speed, efficiency and intelligence.
Buyers, for instance, can automate everything from sourcing and orders to invoices and payments, while controlling spending, finding new sources of savings and building a healthy supply chain.
With the launch of data-centers co-located within SAP facilities in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, these state-of-the-art procurement applications can now be accessed locally.
SAP is among the first multi-national technology companies to open a cloud data center in the UAE as part of its 5-year USD 200 million investment plan for the UAE and in Saudi Arabia, empowering Saudi Vision 2030 and beyond.
More than 3.4 million companies – including more than 104,000 in the Middle East and North Africa - use SAP Ariba’s solutions to connect and collaborate around more than US$2.1 trillion in commerce on an annual basis.
