SAP is to expand its operations in the Republic of Ireland with a significant investment of 100 new jobs and a 1,350 square metre facility in Dublin.
The German enterprise resource planning firm has already begun recruitment for the jobs, according to foreign investment body IDA Ireland.
The new roles will help to expand SAP's technical support and research and development efforts for international clients, with staff being recruited in Dublin and at the firm's Galway office.
SAP already employs over 1,100 people in Ireland, which plays host to one of the firm's largest global delivery centres, according to IDA Ireland. The extra 100 jobs will cover software development, engineering and administration.
Liam Ryan, managing director for SAP Ireland, explained that the firm's growth plans in the region are on track.
"Current activities in Ireland include the provision of services and support for our customer base in EMEA and the US," he said.
"Ireland provides the best in talent, and its excellent workforce is one of the key factors in SAP's continued recruitment here."
Barry O'Leary, chief executive of IDA Ireland, said that SAP is a major player in Ireland's burgeoning IT sector with "one of the highest levels of ICT activity and employment in the OECD".
The news follows research released earlier this week revealing that skilled technology professionals are becoming hard to find in Ireland, and that many IT workers are sourced from abroad to meet the growing demand from companies like SAP and Google.
Google's Eric Schmidt reportedly complained about the problem at a meeting with the Irish cabinet last week, saying that the government needs to ease visa restrictions to allow more foreigners to take up positions at Google's European headquarters in Dublin.
