In a forum held in Manila, software firm SAP recently presented its customers in Southeast Asia (SEA) who have decided to embark on a journey toward becoming an Intelligent Enterprise by using its products. The economic stimulus in SEA continues to grow, resulting in the expansion of the digital economy. However, each country in the region is developing at a different pace and faces specific challenges in terms of digital maturity.
“The digital ecosystem in Southeast Asia continues to grow and mature, presenting immense opportunities for organizations to harness the power of data,” said Claus Andresen, president and managing director of SAP Southeast Asia. “For 29 years, SAP has helped more than 10,000 companies in the region adopt digital innovations. Today, we continue to expand our innovation portfolio in new ways, allowing our customers and partners to innovate with purpose and confidence. We are glad that companies continue to choose SAP as their trusted partner on their journey to become intelligent enterprises.”
