Verizon and SAP America, a subsidiary of SAP AG, annouced on March 16, that they will deliver SAP CRM (Customer Relationship Management) through Verizon’s computing as a service cloud.
The new SAP CRM targets enterprises and offers rapid deployment with a ready to use software, predefined services and price, and preconfigured content. Users will now be able to access SAP CRM from their desktops or their mobile devices.
Kerry Bailey, group president, cloud strategy and services for Verizon, said ”Verizon and SAP have joined forces to harness the true potential of the cloud by delivering proven enterprise applications that enable workers to enhance their ability to serve clients and to better business outcomes.” She added, “This is yet another step in our path to deliver ‘everything-as-a-service’ — a path that offers increased flexibility and better economics for our business and government clients.”
This new cloud-based CRM will provide global users with secure, reliable access to essential business applications. It also helps enterprises lower hardware and management costs associated with traditional software deployment models.
Similar the Salesforce.com, services will be delivered as a user-subscription license model, per user per month.
