When did SAP started it’s venture as a database system infrastructure?
SAP, Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing, was founded in 1972 by five former IBM employees. SAP’s five founders spent most of their time in the data centers of their first customers, which include the German branch of Imperial Chemical Industries in Ostringen.
Their strategy is to innovate on a stable core by developing the world’s best business applications, deliver innovation without disruption, and leverage their ecosystem. They are combining the following trends and ideas to help them realize their full growth potential as the fastest growing vendors in relational database management systems:
“Our product strategy is to extend our leadership in on-premise business applications (core ERP and SAP Business Suite). At the same time, we will introduce new on-demand solutions, enable new connectivity to the mobile on-device world, and orchestrate the data and processes across all deployment environments to create networked solutions. We believe that by expanding our focus on on-demand and on-device applications and by concentrating on business intelligence and analytics, middleware, cloud-based solutions, and in-memory computing, we can double our addressable market and grow our business.”
Also, in 2010 they introduced more SAP solutions for sustainability regarding energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, product safety, healthcare and sustainability performance management.
