The new platform also offers prebuilt features and templates to help government organizations implement citizen engagement projects, SAP noted.

SAP Hybris serves as brand name that represents SAP’s customer engagement and commerce platforms as well as the products, employees and business of software company hybris AG that SAP has acquired.
