SAP, the world's fourth largest software company according to Gartner, today announced it would open its first Canadian data center to meet intensified demand for cloud-based software. Canadian government information as well as data from private sector companies will be hosted there by the end of the year.

The Canadian center will run a number of solutions from SAP's SuccessFactors unit, as well as platforms from partner Big Data companies such as PHEMI. SAP recently announced that its cloud-related business had grown 39% and that it would be widening its footprint with 16 new data centers worldwide.

"We're seeing more and more Canadian companies moving their business into the cloud as they continue to adopt innovative technology as part of their growth strategy,” says Bob Elliott, managing director of SAP Canada. "Our customers range from government agencies to healthcare and financial services, and almost all of them have strict data security requirements and need this information to reside in Canada.”

This will be the fourth new data center opened by SAP this year, following installations in Tokyo, Osaka, and Sydney.
