SoftwareONE CEO Dieter Schlosser says, “We welcome BNWs 30+ SAP technology specialists, who will significantly enhance SoftwareONE’s global SAP and Technology Services capability, in our group. Our new colleagues will service their customers in APAC and the US, and beyond, in close conjunction with the established Manila SAP Center of Excellence.”

Founded in 1996 and based in Melbourne, BNW is a technology and cloud consulting company specialising in services around SAP platform transformation and migration from on-premises to public cloud hyperscale platforms, such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, and Ali Cloud.

In addition, BNW offers organisations its proprietary SAP-certified tool, PowerConnect, that provides analytical insights into SAP performance data across on-premise and cloud infrastructures as well as security and business process data.

BNW currently supports organisations in Australia, APAC, Europe and the United States, and will be available globally with the SoftwareONE global portfolio and footprint.
