SAP began operations in Ireland in 1997, and today has more than 900 people working at locations in Galway and Dublin. SAP employees in Ireland comprise a diverse community – 18 nationalities of people speaking 21 languages. Located between SAP EMEA and the U.S. headquarters of SAP Americas – and with so many languages and cultures present – Ireland provides the ideal setting to host the SAP service and support organisation serving SAP customers in these regions.
