Both companies will work with board members from businesses such as Capgemini, Lockheed Martin, UBS and Verizon Terremark, the ODCA said Tuesday.

“SAP has made investments in the cloud in the last few years, and we recognize that joining the ODCA will help us evolve our cloud solutions,” said Martin Heisig, senior vice president of HANA Enterprise Cloud at SAP.
