"We offer solutions for companies of all sizes with the objective to help their businesses run better. Today, SAP has grown to be the number one business application software provider with its unique and comprehensive approach to cater to 24 industries like no other company can."
He said: "SAP's real-time data platform was capable of delivering exceptional benefits to business analytics. It helps users to process large quantities of data in real-time from virtually any source of information; allowing enterprises to make intelligent, data-based decisions by gaining immediate access to relevant information. The SAP Real-Time Data platform will transform enterprises in the 21st century with in-memory based platform."
Pai said the platform would give companies the ability to transform their industry business processes into real-time awareness and action.

In Asia Pacific, SAP's result was also excelled with notable growth of 176 percent as the company attracts an increasing number of technology adoptions among customers in the region."
"SAP HANA is our dedication to our customers in data management. It enables them to access and analyse information at unprecedented speeds, and unlock business value from 'big data' for real-time decision support with extreme capabilities to ingest, store and process big data in real-time," he said.
"SAP grew 283 percent on Linux and we are proud of our strategic relationship with HP, Red Hat and Intel in Coalition 4 Innovation (C4I) solutions alliance as we see many companies chose us as the best cost of ownership option in the marketplace," said Pai.
"Malaysia is positioned to leap frog other economies and be in a unique position to adopt SAP's leading applications on a modern real-time data platform," said SAP Singapore and Malaysia managing director, Kowshik Sriman. "We are proud to be here to speak with the leading companies and build on our existing partner ecosystem to ensure local companies get local expertise along with global best practices."
