SAP Gains Ground with the State of Louisiana

October 10, 2008 by admin

The SAP software will be deployed throughout the state, with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD) acting as a key project participant. The state of Louisiana retains 50,000 employees and oversees U.S.$8 billion in procurement each year and therefore needed a solution that would meet and exceed its challenges.

“Based on the robustness of its comprehensive product offering and lowest total cost of ownership, SAP is a key solution provider that can adapt to our constantly changing needs,” says Edward Driesse, chief information officer for the state of Louisiana. “Not only does SAP provide a 360-degree view of state finances and operations; it offers tight integration with our SAP ERP Human Capital Management functionality as well.”

“Efficiency and innovation are increasingly important in enabling state governments to make informed and well-founded decisions,” says Patrick Bakey, president, SAP Public Services. “We are honored that the state of Louisiana has selected SAP as a partner for this purpose.”

The project is currently in the blueprint phase.
