New acquisition

German enterprise software firm SAP has acquired Switzerland-based e-commerce technology company Hybris. Founded in 1997, Hybris provides software solutions for multi-channel e-commerce and data management companies and operates across web and mobile devices.

The firm’s tools are used by a number of major players in the space including 3M, Bridgestone, Levi’s, Nikon and Proctor & Gamble.
