SAP Placed in Leaders Quadrant for Portal Market


Leading Analyst Firm Positions SAP in Leaders Quadrant for Horizontal Portal Products

WALLDORF, Germany.- SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned SAP in the leaders quadrant in the recent “Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portal Products, 20071” report, based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. Gartner defines leaders in the Magic Quadrant as companies that “have a full range of capabilities to support all portal deployment scenarios, and have demonstrated consistent product delivery over a considerable period to meet customer needs, significant product innovation and continued success in selling to new customers.”

Companies worldwide have been using SAP NetWeaver® Portal to unify critical information and applications, giving users role-based views that span the enterprise and IT silos. As a result, companies are able to take full advantage of their information resources and empower employees to make better business decisions. By leveraging enterprise service-oriented architecture (enterprise SOA), SAP NetWeaver Portal helps organizations quickly and securely integrate their SAP solutions, third-party applications, legacy systems and databases – and maximize their return on existing IT investments.

SAP also recently announced enhancements to SAP NetWeaver Portal, including new efficiencies for collaborative project work and updated Web 2.0 tools including wikis and social networking, to support enterprise-wide collaboration while also helping customers ensure security and compliance. (See April 24, 2007 press release titled, “SAP Unveils Road Map for Next Wave of SAP NetWeaver Innovations.”)

“We consider our positioning in the leaders quadrant by Gartner further confirmation of SAP’s commitment to delivering a world-class portal solution,” said Elvira Wallis, senior vice president, SAP NetWeaver Product Management, SAP. “An increasing number of organizations across industries are selecting SAP NetWeaver Portal to integrate and aggregate information across their enterprises. We will continue to innovate and grow the portal component to give our customers further opportunities for business efficiencies and competitive differentiation.”
