SAP to launch its first Asian startup incubator in Japan

SAP, one of the world’s biggest enterprise software companies, is about to launch its first startup accelerator in Asia and has picked Japan for its first foothold in the region. While many large corporations see uprising startups as threats, SAP is developing a unique model that works for customers, the startups and itself.

The Japan accelerator will start in July. The application process for the Japanese program has closed, and there are more than 50 applications, from which SAP will select six to eight startups for the program.

Ram Jambunathan, managing director at SAP.iO, the Germany-based technology company’s business unit focused on incubating innovation, recently talked to the Nikkei Asian Review about what startups they seek in Japan and SAP’s ambitious game plan in Asia.

StellarEmploy is Helping Customers Hire Great Employees with Confidence

In the United States, 40% of the labor force is employed in hourly wage jobs earning less than $20 an hour. Although these jobs are the foundation of our economy, employers often face high turnover, reaching 100% annually. There is a clear disconnect in how hourly job candidates are being assessed and hired, leading to high job drop-out. This was a problem that seemed ripe for a technological and data-driven solution for the founders of StellarEmploy. StellarEmploy replaces traditional resume and screening questions with a mobile friendly survey that uncovers workers’ underlying preferences.

With StellarEmploy’s survey with 50 questions and an average completion time of 15 minutes, employers can learn applicants’ preference for teamwork compared to solo work, or multi-tasking compared to a more focused work environment. This enables them to understand the prominent characteristics of their workplace and different hourly job categories, all based on empirical data. Now, instead of just crossing their fingers and hoping a new hire stays past the critical 90 day mark, they have the raw materials to understand why a majority of workers fail to engage or perform in the first month.

Start-ups and the SAP CX Partner Ecosystem

SAP Customer Experience has closely collaborated with start-ups over the past year, which showed an enormous acceleration in innovation and gave selected SAP CX teams the agility and speed to increase the output of new product pilots significantly. One example is digital search. SAP Customer Experience Labs developed a prototype, called FashionLabs, which allows consumers to take a picture of an item of clothing and then, through visual analysis, shows them similar garments. The IP (intellectual property) for the visual search component in this prototype doesn’t come from SAP, but from a startup (Syte.ai).
