Germany-based global technology company SAP has launched the first live Public Cloud Data Center in Saudi Arabia, empowering Saudi Vision 2030 and marking a major milestone in the kingdom’s digital transformation.

As Saudi organisations invest heavily in cloud solutions, the Saudi IT market is set to reach SR33 billion ($8.8 billion) in 2018, according to a recent report by BMI Research.

The landmark launch of the SAP Public Cloud Data Center, the centerpiece of SAP’s four-year SR285 million Saudi investment plan, was announced at SAP NOW in Riyadh, with an audience of hundreds of C-suite leaders.

The SAP Public Cloud Data Center is part of the wider Digital Hub, which additionally includes: an open digital platform supporting entrepreneurship, co-innovation with customers, partners, and the wider ecosystem to leverage cloud solutions to solve real world problems, and localization to support the Government’s vision and journey into digital transformation.

“Today’s SAP Public Cloud Data Center launch will deliver a new level of cloud-based digital solutions to accelerate transformation and competitiveness to the Kingdom, underscoring our commitment to Saudi Vision 2030,” said Ahmed Al-Faifi, senior vice president and managing director, SAP Middle East North.
