German multinational software maker SAP has launched the SAP S/4 HANA Cloud and SAP commerce cloud on its India data centre.

The launch will enable Indian enterprises to meet end-to-end customer demands and make commerce frictionless while ensuring compliance with the current and upcoming Personal Data Protection Bill, the company said in a statement.

The S/4HANA Cloud and SAP Commerce Cloud will offer enterprises an easy way to consume the latest solutions in the cloud and enable them to take advantage of next-generation software and services, it said.

“Adoption of agility like that of a Digital Native model across the business landscape can lead India Inc to quicker recovery as well as push the demand of a digital buying mindset (electronic commerce). With SAP’s locally available Business Cloud, we are easing Indian enterprises’ transition to be a digital business.” Debdeep Sengupta, president and managing director, SAP Indian Subcontinent said.

The company said as the economy shifts towards a consumption-based model, SAP's new launch brings together core technologies into one stack to deliver scalability and flexibility in the country while adhering to the data localisation policy.

SAP commerce cloud offers an end-to-end commerce solution powering real-time, intelligent customer engagement with individually relevant, in-the-moment experiences, seamlessly crossing channels, spanning front office to back office and connecting demand and supply chain. 

On the other hand, SAP S/4 HANA cloud will simplify and redefine processes, improve modern user experience.

Recently, the company launched Bridge-IT, an app that will provide verified, real-time and local updates on Covid-19 to its employees and some customers.

Employees and customers who have a SAP Cloud Platform Enterprise Agreement can access the data platform, chatbot and automated guidance tools on the app, the company had said in a statement.
