STC and SAP have entered a strategic partnership agreement at GITEX to cooperate on the provision of cloud-based subscription model enterprise software solutions to organisations of all sizes in the public and private sector in the Kingdom.

As per the agreement, most SAP solutions and workloads are now supported on the STC Cloud, allowing new and existing customers to rollout or expand current SAP based solutions without the need for CAPEX based investments in hardware or software.

For public sector customers, adopting the STC cloud for future SAP system expansions represents significant savings in ICT expenses. For private sector customers, SMEs can now scale up their business quickly through digitisation based on SAP solutions running on the STC cloud.

“Saudi organisations need smooth running digitised services to scale and remain competitive and contribute effectively to meeting the objectives of the National Transformational Program 2020, key to achieving on Vision 2030. Applying SAP based solutions structured on STC’s cloud gives decision makers at public and private sector organizations real-time insights for faster and higher impact decisions needed to scale up quickly,” said Sultan Bin Saeed, CEO of STC Solutions, the operator’s system integration focused arm.

The solutions will run on the SAP HANA in-memory platform via secure private clouds running on STC’s data centres in the Kingdom.

“With STC’s world-class network infrastructure and a cloud-based subscription model, Saudi organisations of all sizes and industries can easily adopt the solutions that will drive Saudi Vision 2030’s digital transformation goals,” said Ahmed Al-Faifi, managing director, SAP Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Bahrain.
