SAP doubles in size

10 Feb 11

SAP Australia New Zealand says it pulled off its best ever year in 2010 and has now doubled in size between 2007 and 2010.

Total revenue in 2010 grew 26% year-on-year.

Tim Ebbeck, President and Managing Director, SAP ANZ, said, “Our strategy in ANZ has been to focus our business in key industries, market segments and solutions.

"A focus on partners has seen our indirect business grow strongly while our SAP BusinessObjects solutions continue to be the market leader," he continued.

Big customer wins last year included Auckland Council, Jucy Rentals, Fairfax Media, CGU Insurance, Murray Goulburn Co-operative, Workcover WA and McGrath Foundation.

Looking ahead to the rest of the year, Ebbeck added, “This year we are seeing major innovations coming to market with in-memory computing, mobile solutions and cloud offerings. 2011 will be an exciting year for SAP.”
