SAP AG (SAP) and IT solutions company Mindtree are teaming up to help customers execute cloud strategies on SAP cloud applications and mobile platforms.

Both companies said the alliance will assist Mindtree customers with application development and cloud deployment on cloud and mobile platforms, complementing SAP's product landscape. In addition, the partnership allows Mindtree to analyze and evaluate the application and business maturity levels.

Mindtree Head of Package Solutions Arun Rangaraju said in a prepared statement that customer success means success for Mindtree, but customers want more cloud options.

"Our partnership with SAP reinforces our commitment to deliver innovative solutions to our customers. This ties back to our mission to engineer meaningful technology solutions to help businesses and societies flourish," he said.

Mindtree has been an SAP Partner since 2005 and a SuccessFactors, an SAP company, product development partner for the past 6 years.

Separately, SAP Global Ecosystem and Channels President Eric Duffaut recently made a personal decision to leave the company, after being with the company for five years.
