This solidifies Trifork’s market position as a serious and strategic business partner, enabling companies to maximize the value of their SAP Cloud journey, says Morten Gram, Chief Revenue Officer of Trifork Group.

“I’m thrilled to join forces with Trifork in our efforts to become the main SAP Business Technology Platform partner in Denmark and now also beyond borders”, says Jonas Büttcher, CEO and founder of Sapere and continues: “Together, Sapere and Trifork will become the preferred partner for businesses, cementing Sapere’s position in the SAP Integration sphere as well as Trifork’s position in the full BTP Suite. This partnership is built on perfectly aligned values and business cultures, which is why I truly feel that Sapere brings the last piece of the Trifork puzzle to ensure high quality, trust, and innovation in our customers’ S4/HANA benefit realization program as well as their entire SAP BTP journey.”


Transaction overview

Trifork will acquire 77.8% of Sapere. The transaction is currently being finalized and is expected to be completed on 1 July 2024.

Sapere will continue as a separate business unit within the Trifork Group, and the founder and CEO of Sapere remains in place and is fully committed to the future development of the company.
