The three key fo­cus ar­eas were en­able busi­nesses adopt busi­ness clouds, en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence for cus­tomers, and op­ti­mize the data and cre­ate some­thing mean­ing­ful through the so­lu­tions like SAP HANA, and SAP S/4HANA

SAP India made an es­ti­mated an­nual rev­enue in the FY2019 of USD 500 Mn. The strong mo­men­tum in the core and cloud busi­ness con­tin­ued to drive the rev­enue growth for SAP India in FY19. The rapidly ex­pand­ing cloud busi­ness to­gether with solid growth in sup­port rev­enue con­tin­ued to drive the share of more pre­dictable rev­enue for the com­pany.

SAP has been con­sis­tently meet­ing its out­look met­rics ever since it laid out its 2020 am­bi­tions in early 2015. Four years ago SAP said that the cloud rev­enue would su­per­sede its li­cense rev­enue in 2018 and with a fast adop­tion of its cloud so­lu­tions, it be­came a re­al­ity pretty fast.

With an an­nual global rev­enue of €24.74 bil­lion, the com­pany had a record run in 2018. For the full year 2018, cloud and soft­ware rev­enue grew by 10 per­cent. Cloud sub­scrip­tions and sup­port rev­enue was €5.03 bil­lion. The to­tal of cloud sub­scrip­tions and sup­port rev­enue and soft­ware sup­port rev­enue was 48 per­cent.

Our Key Highlights:

• Mod­ernised CRM with SAPC/4HANA • Strength­ens multi-cloud play with SAP Cloud Plat­form • in­te­grated AI & ML ca­pa­bil­i­ties across the SAP cloud port­fo­lio

For FY19, SAP fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing the in­tel­li­gent en­ter­prise for cus­tomers to op­er­ate with vis­i­bil­ity, fo­cus, and agility to achieve game-chang­ing out­comes. India is un­der­go­ing a dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion, which can be seen in the promis­ing re­sults of best-run busi­nesses adopt­ing in­tel­li­gent, dy­namic, cross­func­tional pro­cesses to de­liver op­ti­mum ex­pe­ri­ences.

The three key fo­cus ar­eas were en­able busi­nesses adopt busi­ness clouds, en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence for cus­tomers, and op­ti­mize the data and cre­ate some­thing mean­ing­ful through the so­lu­tions like SAP HANA, and SAP S/4HANA.

The core busi­ness re­mained strong with S/4HANA adop­tion up to 11,500 cus­tomers glob­ally. SAP made its S/4HANA Cloud avail­able in India this year. SAP S/4HANA Cloud is an In­tel­li­gent ERP with built-in ma­chine learn­ing and AI. With con­ver­sa­tional AI plat­forms be­ing the next big par­a­digm shift in IT, SAP in­te­grated SAP CoPilot with the SAP S/4HANA Cloud. The voice­ac­ti­vated dig­i­tal as­sis­tant for en­ter­prises en­ables users to to get their work done more quickly and ef­fi­ciently.

The tech­nol­ogy assets such as SAP HANA in the cloud, SAP cloud plat­form, SAP Leonardo, and SAP an­a­lyt­ics cloud have seen the strong­est pipe­line. So­lu­tions like Con­cur also con­tin­ued to grow in dou­ble-dig­its on a global scale.

SAP wit­nessed im­mense con­fi­dence from the cus­tomers in terms of ca­pa­bil­i­ties and that can be seen in sev­eral big-ticket cus­tomer wins and go lives in India this fis­cal such as MG Mo­tors, Pidilite In­dus­tries, DCM Shri­ram, Ex­ide In­dus­tries, Larsen & Tubro In­fotech, etc. HANA con­tin­ues to be the big grosser for SAP. The new fo­cus on cloud will help it stay afloat in the fu­ture as well.
