Frankfurt Grow Live
Hartmut Hamann, Sales Director Germany Oracle NetSuite, provided Grow Live Frankfurt guests with insights about the strategy for the German market and the localised solutions.

In order to address increasing competition, shifting customer expectations and constantly changing regulations, German organisations are starting to rethink their traditional technology platforms. In fact, according to the 2018 KPMG Cloud Monitor report, 66 percent of organisations operating in Germany were using cloud computing in 2017. To help organisations in Germany embrace the latest in cloud computing and support the thriving “Mittelstand”, NetSuite is expanding its presence in the German market.

“The German ERP market is highly-fragmented and as more organisations are looking to the cloud, we wanted to provide an alternative to traditional legacy systems that could help organisations grow locally and internationally,” said Nicky Tozer, EMEA VP, Oracle NetSuite. “With the latest release of NetSuite OneWorld, we are providing a complete solution with language, currency, tax compliance and local support teams for the German market.”
