SAP's Digital Opportunity

Every day, SAP asks their customers to re-imagine their business, push the boundaries, or enhance the customer experience. Today, it’s about the digital transformation of SAP.

Currently ~80% of SAP customers don’t have a Customer Engagement Executive, and it’s difficult for them to make smaller purchases. This is especially true for small and midsize wholesale distribution customers. SAP has a significant opportunity to improve their relationship with SAP via digital channels.



By leveraging digital channels for lower value, high-volume deals, the SAP sales teams will be able to sell more efficiently and meet customers’ needs more accurately, resulting in greater satisfaction

No-touch experience

SAP Digital, is designing, orchestrating and running a simple and consistent so-called "No-touch" experience for customers and partners. This means product, service and support offerings without involvement of the SAP sales force, powered by SAP C/4HANA and the new customer experience, SAP CX. Customers and partners may discover and buy online anywhere, anytime, in a few clicks with clear product descriptions for SAP and trusted third-party solutions in the environment of SAP.com, SAP AppCenter, Amazon, Alibaba, and more.

Try & Buy

More and more software product pages will integrate relevant information with a “try-and-buy” experience. Customers and partners will find all information, from software capabilities, through customer references, to pricing & plans, extensibility and ecosystem, support, and training on the product pages.
