The SAP Builders programme also aids users in connecting with others via forums and hands-on workshops to exchange best practices. SAP Build is also compatible with non-SAP systems, added the company.
The company has announced a partnership with Coursera to provide entry-level professional certificates for the most in-demand fields. The alliance aims to triple the amount of free learning available on the SAP Learning website, helping the firm achieve its goal of upskilling 2 million developers globally by 2025.
SAP provides enterprise resource planning software, which caters to the needs of small and medium businesses to large global enterprises. SAP solutions allows its users to analyse and efficiently design the value chain. The company also provides an end-to-end suite of applications and services.
The company reported third-quarter 2022 non-IFRS earnings of €1.12 per share ($1.13), down 36% from the year-ago quarter’s levels. The downside was caused by tougher year-over-year comparisons pertaining to the contribution from Sapphire Ventures.
Total revenues, on a non-IFRS basis, of €7.841 billion ($7.903 billion), up 15% year over year (up 5% at constant currency or cc), driven by strength in the cloud business.
Software licenses and support revenues totaled €3.422 billion, down 3% (down 9% at cc) year over year. Non-IFRS software license revenues of €406 million declined 38% (down 42% at cc) year over year.
However, the company expects a negative impact of approximately €250 million at constant currencies due to a lack of new business and discontinuation of the existing business.
SAP currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Shares of the company have lost 22.7% compared with the industry’s decline of 31.2% in the past year.
