SAP's expansion plans across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region have picked up pace following opening of the company's new Oman office.

"Oman is an exciting market for SAP," said Gergi Abboud, Country Manager for SAP Gulf
"This office opening signifies a new level of investment in the country as we seek to expand our ability to help businesses and organizations run better through IT innovation in areas such as analytics, mobility, cloud and in-memory computing."

Now in its 40th year, SAP is the world's leading business software company, and recently concluded a successful Q3 2012 with global software revenue increasing 17% to ‚1,026 Million (12 per cent at Constant Currencies).

There was also triple digit growth in the key innovation areas of cloud, SAP's in-memory computing flagship offering HANA and mobility.

The MENA region is at the heart of SAP's long-term global growth strategy, which includes doubling its addressable market, reaching 1 billion people and generating global revenue of ‚ 20 billion by 2015.

SAP aims to achieve these goals through a multi-pronged innovation agenda comprising synchronized investments in five interconnected elements: extending a leadership position in Applications, broadening its footprint in Analytics, expanding its reach through Mobile, becoming a profitable leader in the Cloud, and growing the fastest in Technology and Database.
