Multi-national software firm SAP has announced it is entering the Northern Ireland IT market in partnership with Craigavon-based technology company, FUEL.

German business SAP is the 24th most valuable brand in the world, and a global leader in enterprise software.

However, the company's entry into the market in Northern Ireland does not mean that it will be creating any new jobs here.

SAP has projected growth of 25% across its SME markets this year.

A spokesman for FUEL said SAP regarded Northern Ireland as a key market, with its new partner FUEL "having a strong footprint across key growth industries including agri-food, manufacturing and engineering and healthcare services".

FUEL IT traded as MCS for 20 years before rebranding last year.

It was founded by Paul Trouton, who started working in IT while studying for a computer science degree at Queen's University in 1991.
