SAP pumps $60m into Victorian job growth plan

28/08/2014 by


SAP today revealed that it would spend AU$60 million on staff and infrastructure in Victoria over the next five years, after the launch yesterday of its innovation centre in Melbourne.

The innovation centre, which was first announced in March last year, houses SAP's latest mission-control centre, one of five state-of-the-art customer support facilities globally.

Located on St Kilda Road, the centre is aimed at providing the physical space and technology infrastructure to accommodate the branch's growing employee base, which has increased by 20 percent since March 2013.

Justin Williams, general manager for the southern region of SAP Australia and New Zealand's operations, said the company is on track to fulfil its plan to create 120 jobs in the wider IT industry in Victoria by October 2014.

SAP said that the investment in new talent is also aimed at supporting business development for local technology and channel partners, whose contribution to SAP's revenue has grown from 12 percent in 2013 to 30 percent in 2014.

"More and more organisations in Victoria understand that digital transformation is the key to better serving customers and citizens," said Williams. "Delivering experiences that surprise and delight consumers is now the benchmark of a truly customer-centric organisation."

The launch of the Melbourne innovation centre comes as the German enterprise software giant moves to invest $500 million in Africa between now and 2020.
