SAP launches cloud ERP “Grow with SAP” in Southeast Asia
SAP South East Asia (SEA) announced the launch of GROW with SAP, a new offering to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) adopt cloud ERP that enables speed, predictability and continuous innovation, on the back of its SEA Partner Success Summit 2023, attended by over 300 partners across the region.
GROW with SAP also includes SAP Business Technology Platform so customers can define their own processes in a cloud-native way using SAP Build. With the help of SAP Build solutions, business users can create enterprise apps, automate processes and design business sites without writing code, an important asset for those closest to the business who can create the solutions they need.
According to a SAP study, more than two-thirds of SMEs say that digital transformation is critical for their organization’s survival. More than ever, organizations need knowledgeable business partners that can help guide them through their transformation journey, help them navigate changes with agility, and help achieve lifetime business value from their investments.
“SMEs are the backbone of the SEA economy, making up nearly 99% of all businesses, contributing to 90% of employment and nearly 60% of GDP in many ASEAN countries. Together with our ecosystem of partners across SEA, we can empower SMEs to be the growth engines of the digital and experience economy by harnessing the proven benefits of GROW with SAP, achieve continuous innovation to retain their competitive advantage in a dynamic market, and unleash their potential for new international business opportunities,” said Verena Siow, President and Managing Director, SAP SEA.
“T-PRIDE was established to contribute towards building community resilience, preparedness and response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are in the post pandemic era, we continue to safeguard the community and stay prepared. By moving to the cloud and leveraging GROW with SAP as our digital core, we are able to enhance the way we operate with greater governance and visibility, while continuing to deliver on our mission. Having an integrated solution will ensure we can manage future deployments effectively and processes/governance are aligned. With an unifying and data-driven approach to process analysis and improved decision-making, we continue to meet the evolving needs of our communities and transform lives for a more inclusive and resilient world,” said Judy Hoie, CEO, Temasek Public Resilience Infectious Disease Emergency (T-PRIDE).
“SAP has over 50 years of expertise to help enable companies of all sizes become sustainable, intelligent enterprises, and we understand what it takes to help customers realize value from adopting cloud ERP, how they can leverage SAP cloud solutions to scale and support even the most extensive product lines, complex service offerings, and ambitious sustainability goals,” added Siow.
“Businesses know that there are significant benefits from digital transformation and move to the cloud, but uncertainty holds them back,” said Christophe Derdeyn, Partner and Director Delaware Singapore & Delaware International. “GROW with SAP shows customers we can meet their budget and business needs. When they see the components and services clearly mapped out, moving to the cloud will no longer feel like such a scary leap, but a controlled, step-by-step process. Also, it’s the assurance that they’re in good hands that makes all the difference with SAP and Partner ecosystem.”
“SAP combined three of its strongest assets into a powerhouse program to help customers move to the cloud,” said Krit Virojsailee, I AM Consulting Managing Director. “Our customers can scale their business with SAP S/4HANA® Cloud. They can innovate with SAP Business Technology Platform. And the preconfigured best practice content – that’s 50 years of industry knowledge – speeds up implementation and will give them a leg up on their competition!”
