The recent announcement of the SAP cloud partnership with Metanet Global in Korea is anticipated to have far-reaching implications. This collaboration is expected to significantly enhance the efficiency of customer operations by providing them access to a wide range of advanced cloud technologies and solutions.
Last year, SAP Korea made a strong and steadfast commitment to the local cloud computing industry by signing a crucial strategic business agreement for public cloud collaboration with Naver Cloud, an internet-based giant, as well as Cloud4C Korea, a cloud-managed services provider. This agreement was designed to foster cooperation regarding public cloud infrastructure and services and reflects SAP’s dedication to promoting the continued development of South Korea’s cloud capabilities.
Fast forward to 2023, Shin Eun-young, the CEO of SAP Korea, and Kim Ki-ho, the CEO of Metanet Global, recently inked a Strategic Business Agreement for Public Cloud Cooperation at a signing ceremony held at the SAP Korea office. The agreement is intended to strengthen their relationship and lay down plans for future cooperation between both parties. During the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing ceremony, they discussed in detail their proposals regarding potential collaboration in order to explore new opportunities and promote mutual growth.

Marking an important milestone for both companies, SAP Korea and Metanet Global look towards developing a stronger partnership to better serve their customers in the public cloud space. By entering into the said business agreement, the two companies are hoping to explore potential business chances for SAP S/4HANA Cloud in the public sector. Their primary goal is to cultivate a mutually beneficial relationship in order to effectively maximize these opportunities and make them a reality.
Commenting on the latest industry development, SAP Korea Chief Executive Officer Shin Eun-young said in a statement:
“SAP is a company that advances business with an integrated process based on new technologies and advanced cases so that all companies and institutions regardless of the size and type of organization can quickly respond to the changing market and change the way they work. We are providing various support so that this intelligent enterprise can be reborn. We look forward to actively building a public best case that succeeded in transforming into an intelligent enterprise in partnership with Metanet Global.”
Supporting the Public Sector Through the Metanet-SAP Cloud Partnership
The public sector in Korea is in particular need of cloud-based solutions, particularly SAP, to help them modernize their infrastructure and streamline operations. Cloud computing provides organizations with a secure and cost-effective platform for storing data, improving efficiency, and reducing IT costs. Adopting cloud technology will enable the public sector to access up-to-date information more quickly, enabling faster decision-making and improved customer service.
Furthermore, with cloud solutions organizations can take advantage of innovative features such as collaboration tools which can be used by employees both inside and outside the organization. As such, it is clear that the public sector in Korea must embrace cloud solutions if they are to remain competitive in today’s technologically advanced world.
Based on the signed agreement with SAP, Metanet Global will actively promote and propagate SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition and SAP HANA Big Data platform when they are conducting introduction and construction projects of SAP S/4HANA in the public sector. SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition is an innovative cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that responds to customer-specific issues with a customized approach.
By leveraging the latest intelligent technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and advanced analytics, this powerful software has become increasingly popular among businesses of all sizes around the globe. With its user-friendly interface and comprehensive capabilities, it continues to be one of the most sought-after solutions for companies looking for an efficient and effective ERP system.
Moreover, the agreement allows them to provide more tailored solutions for their customers so they can benefit from the most advanced technological advancement while keeping track of the budget. By doing so, Metanet Global is able to accelerate and lead innovation and change that might come up during such a project.
“Metanet Global is a representative IT consulting company in Korea with high-level consultants and application modernization capabilities and has continued close business cooperation with SAP Korea. It will contribute to the efficient and stable digital transformation of public institutions,” Metanet Global Chief Executive Officer Kim Gi-ho said.
