SAP and Lenovo Plan to Bring Advanced Solutions to the New Digital Economy

SAP and Lenovo  today announced a multifaceted partnership to develop cloud solutions in China, create innovations between the SAP HANA platform and Lenovo systems and jointly execute global go-to-market programs. The agreement is intended to significantly strengthen an existing partnership and to combine SAP solutions with Lenovo’s data center offerings to provide customers with technology that can help organizations become agile digital enterprises.

Business and IT leaders are constantly seeking new solutions to improve productivity and efficiency, reduce complexity, and create value in the new digital economy. Gartner predicts that by 2020, 80 percent of business processes and products will have been reinvented, changed or eliminated as a result of improved access to information.1 This potential is only realized when technology can turn data into insights, with the speed in which decisions are made as a critical competitive differentiator.

The partnership will include:

  • Further strengthening joint execution, including developing innovative cloud solutions in China.
  • Engaging in new innovations between SAP HANA and Lenovo systems to explore and define new technologies that address the needs of the digital economy. This will also result in SAP using Lenovo systems as an infrastructure server platform.
  • Jointly executing global go-to-market programs, inclusive of system integrators and technology partners, to bring these new technologies to our joint customers. This will include showcasing joint differentiated solutions in Lenovo Enterprise Innovation Centers in Stuttgart, Germany; Morrisville, North Carolina; and a center soon to be opened in Beijing, China.
