NEC has entered into an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with SAP to integrate the SAP Business ByDesign solution with its global cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) services.
The new offering, NEC Global Localization Package for SAP Business ByDesign, will leverage the ERP cloud solution from SAP and the end-to-end cloud deployment capabilities from NEC and will enable subsidiaries of large corporations and small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) to improve efficiency and gain insights into real-time enterprise-wide operations.
This OEM agreement is the first of its kind worldwide regarding SAP Business ByDesign. At the initial stage, NEC plans to roll out the new offering in key South East Asia markets.
NEC also intends to develop valued-added localization functionalities, which will be integrated with SAP Business ByDesign. NEC also targets to provide its new cloud services in the several countries on three different continents where the solution is already available.
