Mumbai: Henning Kagermann, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of SAP AG, inaugurated the latest facility to the company's already extensive SAP Labs campus in Bangalore. The new facility, Phase III, at the company's existing campus in Whitefield, Bangalore will have a capacity to seat over 2,000 employees. In addition, SAP also announced the SAP Scholar Program a pioneering industry academia initiative to encourage engineering talent to opt for advanced degrees combined with professional training.

Kagermann, announced multiple initiatives to deepen the company's involvement in India on the engineering and product development front. He also reaffirmed the company's acknowledgement of the contribution being made by SAP Labs India.

The announcement was made during the first ever visit by the SAP Executive Board to India, reflecting the rising importance of the country to SAP both as a vibrant market as well as technology development and services-support delivery center.

Commenting on the reasons behind the company expanding its facilities in Bangalore, Henning Kagermann, CEO, SAP AG, said, "This new facility is both a sign of SAP's acknowledgement of the breadth and quality of work being delivered by our colleagues in India, and our commitment to deepen our engagement with Indian engineering talent even further."

SAP also announced a pioneering initiative in partnership with IIIT-B and BITS-Pilani, two of India's foremost engineering institutes, to encourage students to go in for advanced engineering degrees while getting professional training in parallel. Once selected, the students enroll in a post-graduate program with either IIIT-B or BITS-Pilani while spending a portion of their time working on a part time basis with SAP Labs. On successful completion of the program, students will get an offer to join SAP and are treated at par with experienced candidates.
