SAPPHIRE NOW Madrid: SAP start-ups chosen for SAP HANA One platform

Twenty start-ups from the SAP Startup Focus program have signed
commercial agreements to go productive with SAP HANA One platform on
Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The program was launched six months ago and gives start-ups the
opportunity to accelerate their growth by innovating on the SAP HANA

Since the program launch, more than 800 start-ups from 17 countries have been evaluated, with 153 chosen to participate.

Feedzai is one of the 20 start-ups lucky enough to have signed an
agreement. The Portugal-based company provides a real-time application
to help financial institutions prevent fraud before it occurs.

Other start-ups chosen include US-based Fan Appz, which offers a social
media marketing solution that helps businesses acquire new customers and
grow existing relationships with personalisation, and Warwick
Analytics, which offers root cause analysis and early warning systems
for defects in complex high-value manufacturing industries.

“As an early stage university spinoff, time to market is key,” said Dan
Somers, CEO of Warwick Analytics. “It is refreshing to find a company
the size of SAP working like a start-up to help us go from concept to
product in 10 short weeks.”

“Having been an entrepreneur and founder of a start-up, I believe that a
true platform must serve, and benefit from, the imagination and passion
that these startups bring,” said Dr Vishal Sikka, member of the SAP
executive board, technology and innovation.

“The revolutionary platform ability of SAP HANA, combined with the SAP
Startup Focus program’s steadfast dedication to openness and
co-innovation and SAP’s massive reach are helping to bring this vast
pool of imagination to market fast.”
