In one of my previous blogs I’ve talked to Technology Strategy at SAP Part 1 and 2 and it’s Technology Strategy at SAP Part 3.

Claus von Riegen who is also in Kaj’s team works in the large area of Open Source at SAP. SAP utilizes open source as a productivity driver and to drive interoperability with open source technologies. This helps SAP to ensure connectivity with well-known open source development environments (such as PHP, Python, Perl, JavaScript, JQuery, Ruby) and by selecting mature open source OS/DB platforms with enterprise-level support this enables SAP customers to significantly lower TCO. 

Listen to what Claus has to say regarding Open Source in the video below. 

In case you want to learn more about SAP’s engagement in Open Source you can find more information on the Open Source page on SDN or in the Technology Strategy site on SDN. You can also follow the blogs from Claus who writes regularly about SAP’s engagement in Open Source and Technology Standards.

Edit from Aprill 8th, 2011: Meanwhile Claus also provided a more detailed drill-down in How open source software supports SAP technology strategy.

    Are there any metrics on end user customers that use open source?  Partner firms?  SAP itself?  Consultants?

    Just curious after watching the interview!

    Thank you – very informative as usual,
