SAP NEWSBYTE — SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced upcoming activities with customers and partners at CeBIT 2014, being held March 10-14 in Hanover, Germany. This year, SAP partners will once again exhibit their solutions directly in the company’s 4,000 square-meter booth, located in hall 4 C04. At 27 demo stations, they will present solutions and technologies in innovation areas around the SAP HANA® platform and SAP® Cloud powered by SAP HANA, as well as end-to-end enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions for small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) and industry and line-of-business offerings. On the central SAP stage, partners and customers will hold sessions explaining how SAP technology platforms help them move their businesses forward.

“Our CeBIT 2014 motto, ‘Join the Team,’ is targeted at customers and partners, as well as startups, developers and young professionals — the event is a communications and networking platform to bring them all together,” said Jochen Wiessler, head of SME and Ecosystem in Germany, SAP Deutschland AG & Co.

Whether it is our cloud solutions, in-memory technology, analytics solutions or mobile apps, our platform technologies help companies and partners to adapt their business models to new market trends and turn their own innovative ideas into reality more rapidly.”
