The best run simple
The brand-led evolution of a tech giant
How can SAP—a tech-industry giant expanding from back-office installation to cloud-based, end-to-end solutions—use brand to guide its evolving portfolio, and deepen connections with current and future customers?
Through both quantitative and qualitative research, we learned that the SAP brand is a major driver in customers’ decisions to buy SAP solutions. In elevating its brand, SAP could tell a simpler and more cohesive story, increasing purchase consideration across its portfolio while bringing clarity to it.
As brand agency of record, we’ve helped SAP develop a robust portfolio strategy, laying the foundation for simpler, more powerful experiences. SAP now has a framework for communicating new solutions more effectively, integrating acquired brands more seamlessly, and conveying its history of innovation with the next generation of customers and employees.
SAP’s rapidly growing cloud business makes it the fastest-growing enterprise cloud company at scale, and the largest cloud company in the world, with over 80 million users.

The way we present our brand to the world is a powerful signifier of who we are and where we are headed. The visual language of the evolved brand reveals an SAP that is more customer-centric, engaging and innovative than ever before.
