SAP Says New Cloud Bookings Rose 103% in 2015

SAP reported exceptional momentum with fast growth in cloud and double-digit growth in its core license business in the fourth quarter. For the full year, non-IFRS cloud and software revenue grew by 20% or 12% at constant currencies and exceeded the outlook of 8% - 10% growth at constant currencies.

Some highlights:

  • New cloud bookings, the key measure for SAP's sales success in the cloud, increased 103% in the full year 2015 to €0.89 billion and 75% in the fourth quarter to €0.35 billion1. Non-IFRS cloud subscriptions and support revenue was €2.30 billion (€2.00 billion2 at constant currencies, achieving the outlook of €1.95 to €2.05 billion at constant currencies) for the full year. Non-IFRS operating profit was €6.35 billion (€5.902 billion at constant currencies, beating the full year outlook of €5.6 - €5.9 billion at constant currencies).
  • Customer adoption of SAP S/4HANA continues to accelerate sharply, with more than 2,700 customers across all regions at the end of 2015, more than doubling quarter over quarter. SAP S/4HANA, built on SAP HANA, the most advanced in-memory platform available today, provides the digital core that companies need to reduce complexity, digitize their business and connect every part of their enterprise.

"We decisively beat our full year guidance for cloud and software revenue," said Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP. "SAP gained significant share against core and best of breed competitors. Across markets and industries SAP is extending its lead as the trusted innovator in the business software industry. Our completeness of vision in the cloud and soaring adoption of S/4HANA gives us tremendous confidence in our business in 2016 and beyond."
