Headquartered in Walldorf, Germany, SAP is the world's largest business software company – with more than 65,500 employees at sales and development locations in more than 130 countries worldwide.
Our global development approach focuses on distributing development across the world in strategically important markets. A global network of SAP Labs spanning Bulgaria, Canada, China, Germany, Hungary, India, Israel, and the United States, enables SAP to operate locally, yet organize globally.
As the global technology research unit of SAP, SAP Research significantly contributes to SAP's product portfolio and extends SAP's leading position by identifying and shaping emerging IT trends through applied research and corporate venturing. SAP Research has highly skilled teams in 11 research centers worldwide.
To ensure SAP's position as a technology leader, SAP Ventures invests in emerging entrepreneurial companies that are advancing exciting new technologies. SAP Ventures operates independently from the overall SAP strategy to discover and pursue opportunities for financial return. At the same time, the organization brings substantial benefits to its portfolio companies and SAP by facilitating interaction between innovative young companies and the SAP ecosystem.
