CapGemini creates competency centre for SAP HANA in Mumbai

November 15, 2011, - Global consulting, technology, and outsourcing services leader, Capgemini, has set up a competency centre in Mumbai to support the new HANA platform from SAP -- arguably the first such facility in India. Set up at its global customer Business Information Management (BIM) Experience, the CUBE, the centre aims to drive high-performing, 'big data' analysis, handling huge volumes of data in real time for instant business insight.

One of 12 Centres of Excellence in India for information and technological innovation, this new addition expands on Capgemini's Global BIM Service Line capability, with India as one of the key hubs for innovation.
Capgemini is one of the leading technology service providers to offer BIM solutions that integrate solution data from SAP and other vendors within a predominant SAP solution-based landscape using in-memory computing technology. The centre will act as an interactive showcase where customers can experience innovative SAP HANA-based information management solutions. Customers are also able to interact with subject matter experts on-site or through video connections from around the globe, examine solutions created to address specific customer issues, and review proofs of concept and technology innovations, as well as productivity tools.
Paul Nannetti, Global Head of the BIM Service Line at Capgemini, said, "We are delighted to open this new centre specializing in SAP HANA and in-memory computing technology. In today's highly-competitive business climate, immediate access to and analysis of all operational data ultimately determines the success of an organization. This will also enable us to bring our global experience to Indian customers and take advantage of the competency centre based in India."

Last month, Capgemini announced the launch of its Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Supply Chain Management Services. With three key solutions - Order Management and Fulfilment, Logistics Management, and Sustainability Services - this new service line consolidates existing expertise, tools and processes to manage and optimize all facets of enterprise supply chains in a sustainable way.
