SAP Africa Workforce to Double as Oil-Rich States Courted

SAP AG, the biggest maker of business-management software, is pushing further into oil- and gas-rich African countries as growth in Europe remains subdued and Asian markets slow.

Pfungwa Serima, who heads SAP’s operations in the region, has been meeting with ministers from African countries as good relations with governments are crucial for business expansion, he said in an interview. SAP plans to double the number of employees in Africa to about 1,200 by 2015.
