Software giant to create 75 jobs
Around 75 jobs are to be created by one of the world's top business software providers, enterprise chiefs said today.
German-based SAP/Business Objects is to expand its telesales and technical support functions in Dublin.
The development will see the company's Irish workforce grow to more than 1,000.
IDA chief executive Barry O'Leary said the announcement marked a significant milestone for the firm.
"SAP/Business Objects is a key player in Ireland's ICT sector and the commencement of recruitment of an additional 75 positions is welcome news," he added.
"SAP has a reputation as a growth and innovation-led company and since setting up its first operation in Ireland has repeatedly upgraded its mandate here."
The company, which came to Ireland in 1997, provides business software services and support for customers around the world.
It operates across two sites in Dublin and Galway, with a software development lab in the capital developing cutting-edge business analytics software.
