It will broaden the SAP software portfolio in the education space
Germany-based SAP said it plans to acquire software and relevant assets from software provider datango.
The transaction, which is slated to close during the first quarter of 2012, will broaden the SAP software portfolio in the education space, providing its customers with helpful software tools to help address their end-to-end user training, knowledge management and performance support challenges, the company stated.
The Berlin-based datango solution would provide content development, translation and deployment capabilities for electronic training, documentation, and user support.
This solution will enable SAP to develop valuable integration with other SAP tools, providing value addition for SAP customers.
Features of datango’s Electronic Performance Support (EPSS) along with its existing SAP offerings in the education software space, will help the company’s customers to reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO) and facilitate end-user enablement in a scalable way and accelerate end-user adoption, SAP stated.
SAP Education senior vice president and global head Markus Schwarz said the workforce performance tools market has become increasingly strategic and critical to SAP’s customers’ success, and datango is a proven leader in this space.
"By having its own product in this market, SAP can now deliver and accelerate innovations and produce robust content for our customers in the future," said Schwarz.
The transaction is subject to the regulatory approvals.
