SAP sets up retail CoE in Mumbai

SAP India has announced the opening of Centre of Excellence (CoE) to tap the booming retail sector in India. The SAP retail CoE will function out of its Mumbai facility.

The CoE will demonstrate the strength of SAP retail offering and the usage of various frontier technologies along with the best practices to be followed in retail in India.

While inaugurating the SAP retail CoE, Alan Sedghi, president & CEO, SAP Indian sub-continent said, “Indian and global retailers are vying to tap the high potential Indian market and as a result, majority of them are facing numerous market and internal pressures that impede their ability to foster growth and improve profitability.”

Sedghi further added “The retail opportunity in India is expected to be around $440 billion by 2010. Growth in the mid-market and retail segment is what we are looking at,”.

According to him, SAP for retail solutions would be built based on the SOA platform. The acquisition of Triversity, which specialises in selling point-of-sale software and Khimetrics a U.S based customer-demand management software vendor will further add to the Sap product portfolio. SAP now plans to establish four more CoEs across the country including a RFID CoE in Bangalore and a CoE in Delhi.
