Oxford Economics is a world leader in economic analysis for business and government, specializing in global forecasting, economic impact analysis, and evidence-based thought leadership. Founded in 1981 as a joint venture with Oxford University, Oxford Economics is now a leading independent economic consultancy. Headquartered in Oxford, UK, with offices around the world, the firm is known for the rigor of its work and as a trusted resource for decision makers.
SAP has engaged Oxford Economics for research programs including Real Time Business, SMEs: Equipped to Compete, and, of course, Unlocking the Cloud. The value of these projects lies in their deep and objective exploration of the topics at hand. The output is not about SAP or its products and services, but about the trends and technologies that define global markets. This provides SAP with actionable intelligence to share with its customers and employees.
