SAP Is Up To a Company-Wide Restructuring, Will Have a Marginal Impact on India Operations

SAP Is Up To a Company-Wide Restructuring, Will Have a Marginal Impact on India Operations

The global restructuring of SAP SE will affect its India operations as well as result in the loss of jobs of around 4,400 employees. The number of people working at SAP India comes to around 11,000 including the 7,500 odd engineers at its R&D labs.

India has always proven to be an important market for SAP to take its business software forward on the cloud. However, SAP is also supporting many smaller teams working on legacy software for its clients. As affirmed by a SAP India representative, the restructuring will have a marginal effect on India but there’s no information regarding the specific numbers.

SAP made an announcement saying that it is anticipating a significant number of departures ready to happen in Germany and the U.S. Likewise departures too can be expected across the rest of Europe and the rest of the Americas, Africa, Asia and Australia. The firm now intends to provide early retirement in Germany, US, France and Canada, as well as voluntary redundancy programs in Germany and various other countries. The restructuring will save nearly $ 1 bilion.

Earlier in 2015, SAP had done a similar restructuring, but it could see a bigger activity to repeat that this year. SAP Labs, with its employee strength of 7500, plays an important role in the company’s global software development and innovation functions.

Luka Mucic, SAP SE’s chief financial officer, said that the objectives behind restructuring the firm this year is to further simplify the structures and processes as well as to ensure that the resource allocation is done taking the right mix of skills and qualifications that matches its strategic growth areas.
