SAP Africa, a market leader in enterprise application software, has, on Thursday, launched AppHaus in Africa, as effort to boost Africa’s innovation capabilities.
AppHaus is a network that ensures creative spaces and innovation services are available to organisations that use SAP solutions, regardless of their geographic location.
Board chairman, African SAP User Group, Duke Mathebula, explained that, by leveraging design-led innovation centres such as the newly launched APPHAUS at Epi-Use Labs, customers gain access to a user-centric approach, co-creation opportunities, and expert guidance from skilled professionals.
EPI-USE, the world’s largest and most experienced independent SAP HR/Payroll specialist, was chosen as the first AppHaus partner in Africa. The company has been SAP partner for 40 years, developing deep domain knowledge and technical expertise in SAP technologies and supporting clients in their innovation and digital transformation journeys.
Chief operating officer at SAP Africa, Tracy Bolton, at the AppHaus Launch in South Africa, said the opening of Africa’s first AppHaus is a landmark moment for innovation within the continent’s SAP ecosystem.
Bolton added that, through the expert guidance of our valued partners at EPI-USE and by leveraging SAP’s skills and technology, we hope to support African organisations as they explore innovative solutions to some of the great challenges of our time.
Technical AppHaus lead at EPI-USE, Jhani Coetzee, said that the AppHaus’ human-centred approach and SAP’s Business Technology Platform combine to help African enterprises develop innovative solutions to their business and innovation challenges.”
