BearingPoint has marked its arrival in the Irish cloud market with the signing of two contracts worth over €400,000 over a three-year period.

The management and technology consultancy, which employs 200 people in Dublin, has signed a new agreement with German ERP giant SAP and will sell and deploy SAP’s Business ByDesign cloud-based ERP technology as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering.

“We have hit the ground running with the signing of our first two contracts with a combined value of over €400,000 over a three year period,” commented Peter Minogue, managing director, BearingPoint Ireland.

“Our first two customers are start-up joint venture businesses. Both selected Business ByDesign from BearingPoint to manage their core business processes including finance, supply chain, HR, project management and logistics in an integrated manner. Our implementations will enable both companies to better manage operational costs and support growth,” Minogue said.
