From Many to One, The Tale of SAP Marketplaces
In the first generation of the SAP App Center we focused on applications that were designed to run on SAP Cloud Platform. The SAP App Center developed into great resource for customers who were looking for applications to extend their digital core.
At the same time, SAP continued to run other marketplaces, particularly those that are associated with our cloud applications like – SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Analytics, Concur, SAP Ariba, and others. The marketplaces continued to grow, and we uncovered a problem. We had partners who developed applications that had to list and maintain their applications on multiple marketplaces. And we had customers who had to visit multiple SAP marketplaces to find what they were looking for.
So last year, we set out on a mission. Starting with SAP SuccessFactors App Center, we consolidated the SAP SuccessFactors marketplace into the SAP App Center. Finally – our customers could go to the SAP App Center and see not only all the applications built for SAP Cloud Platform, but also all the applications that were built for SAP SuccessFactors. And our partners benefited as they didn’t have maintain multiple product listings.
With the latest release of the SAP App Center, we’re taking it several steps further. First, we’re bringing all partner applications together under one roof. Don’t take our word for it – visit the SAP App Center and see for yourself. We’ve listed our line of business solutions across the top line of navigation. Interested in SAP Analytics apps? Simply click SAP Analytics. Interested in SAP Hybris apps? Simply click SAP Hybris. It’s really that easy.
And if that wasn’t enough – we decided to take it one step further for our customers by adding the ability to try, purchase and manage applications.
We understand that large company procurement folks do not want to manage multiple points of entry and purchasing methods. They want to manage all the applications entering their organizations from a single point of contact and they want a unified marketplace that helps them do that.
