Mark White: SAP Targets Govt Market for Cloud Services

Agencies Opt to Migrate IT Tenders, Citizen Services

SAP AG has been providing cloud computing tools to enterprise customers through partner companies and subsidiaries around the world.

The company’s SAP National Security Services subsidiary, known as SAP NS2, offers software, service and support for private and public sector clients in the U.S., SAP said Monday.

In Australia, the Victorian state government chose SAP’s Ariba business platform for the state’s e-services register, a cloud-based service designed to simplify bidding for IT-related tenders.

Mark White, general manager for global public services and healthcare industries at SAP, the company strives to help agencies to deliver services to citizens through SAP Cloud.

“Innovations in public service delivery come when government, its employees and citizens are able to quickly tackle issues,” White said.

“Cloud solutions are driving transformation across the private sector, and innovative government agencies that embrace them can fuel meaningful change in the way government business is done,” he added.

The company says there are now 30 million users of its cloud tools that are designed for public, private and managed implementations in all lines of business.

SAP Cloud connects more than one million companies that use the portfolio to move $465 billion commercial transactions each year, the company added.
