SAP to Double China Workforce, Accelerate Spending by 2015

SAP AG, the world’s largest maker of business-management software, plans to almost double its workforce in China and invest $2 billion in the country by 2015 to increase revenue as the economy expands.

SAP will hire 2,000 people, adding to a payroll of about 2,500 employees in the country, and double the number of offices from the current five, the company said today in Beijing at its Sapphire conference for partners and customers in China. Investments will focus on sales-force training and developing software that can be exported to other countries.
