“We had the best year in SAP APJ history and an amazing growth performance in 2012 with 22 percent software and cloud subscription growth. Japan did very well and China delivered a solid double-digit revenue growth performance. India also performed well with notable momentum in the SME space,” said Steve Watts, President, SAP Asia Pacific Japan. Customers such as Century Ginwa Department Store, China Huadian Corporation and Origin Energy Ltd invested in SAP’s innovative software to help them run better.

SAP’s strategy of driving growth through collaboration and co-innovation with its rich partner ecosystem is paying dividends with indirect sales contributing consistently to SAP’s revenue streams throughout 2012. “Our customers have heterogeneous IT landscapes and want to work with an ‘ecosystem of the best’. With more than 1100 partners in APJ, we provide local support for SAP markets and solutions to help fuel innovation and provide choice for customers of all sizes. By 2015, we expect at least 40 percent of SAP’s software revenue will come from partners in APJ,” added Watts.
“SAP celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012. As we embark on our 24th year of operations in APJ, we will continue to focus on delivering customer value with a solutions mindset, expanding partner innovation on SAP HANA in-memory database and accelerating new business models with mobility and the cloud.”
