WALLDORF, 30-9-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that it has been positioned by independent analyst firm Gartner Inc. as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals report.* SAP is categorized as a leader in the portal market based on its “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute” in this highly competitive technology segment.
According to Gartner, digital business requires organizations to improve customer, employee and partner engagement and satisfaction in the midst of an explosion of information, devices and apps. Additionally, according to the report, portal offerings must step up to meet the escalating demands of digital businesses.
“We believe the positioning recognizes our ongoing investment in enabling our widely deployed SAP® Enterprise Portal for the SAP Fiori® user experience as well as the new SAP HANA® Cloud Portal,” said Björn Goerke, EVP and head of SAP Products & Innovation Technology Division. “Our portal continues to be a key element of our integration strategy, helping existing and new customers of SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) to boost their users’ efficiency through a single point of access to all their business processes, whether on premise or in the cloud.”
