The Wall Street Transcript, October 06, 2010 (Online)

In a report published by The Wall Street Transcript, John Papandrea, Senior Vice President of SAP’s health care industry business unit, discusses the Application Software sector. The report, Health Care IT, contains expert industry commentary through in-depth interviews with public company CEOs, Equity Analysts and Money Managers. SAP, Papandrea says, provides a full range of solutions to health care and life sciences companies. “Virtually all of the major life sciences companies run various components of SAP solutions that take into consideration their analytics, their supply chain, manufacturing, financial, human capital management and customer relationship management processes.” SAP also has industry-specific solutions that are used in the direct care of patients. Looking toward the future, Papandrea says there is a growing opportunity in Latin America, as some of those countries have growth in their economies. “That’s one area that we are working diligently on; the same thing in regions of Asia-Pacific,” Panadrea notes, while in regards to the US, the company is focused on taking advantage of the current economic climate and stimulus funding, as well as “the changes that are going to emerge in health care delivery between now and 2012. I believe we are positioning quite well for that.”
