SAP Named Worldwide Market Share Leader in Business Intelligence, Analytics and Performance Management Software by Top Industry Analyst Firm


SAP Ranked No. 1 by Leading Analyst Firm With 22.4 Percent Market Share

WALLDORF, Germany - SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced it has been named the market share leader in business intelligence (BI), analytics and performance management software, according to the 2009 market share report issued by Gartner Inc. In the report, SAP ranks No. 1 with 22.4 percent share of the worldwide market.

“The SAP® BusinessObjects™ portfolio offers the most complete, innovative business intelligence (BI) analytic applications and enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions on the market,” said Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president, SAP. “These solutions provide increased insight and give organizations a powerful tool that helps employees make smarter, faster decisions to drive their business forward. With actionable information at their fingertips, business users can positively impact the performance of their organization.”

According to the Gartner report, “The business intelligence software market was one of the segments that significantly outperformed the overall enterprise software market in 2009. However, large erosion of the prior year’s growth rates showed that this segment is far from being recession-proof.”

In the April 2010 report, “Market Share: Business Intelligence, Analytics and Performance Management Software, Worldwide, 2009,” Gartner found the entire BI market to have increased 4.2 percent from 2008 to approximately $9.3 billion in 2009. BI platforms were found to have a 64.2 percent market share of total worldwide BI software revenue. Corporate performance management (CPM) suites were found to have a 20.8 percent market share, and analytic applications and performance management software were found to have a 15 percent market share. In 2009, SAP BI software revenue for all of these segment types combined ranked first at approximately $2.1 billion.

Gartner defines total software revenue as revenue that is generated from appliances, new licenses, updates, subscriptions and hosting, technical support and maintenance. Professional services revenue and hardware revenue are not included in total software revenue.
