HISTORY • From Start-Up Software Vendor to Global Market Leader • Over the course of three decades, SAP had evolved from a small, regional enterprise into a world-class international company. Today, SAP was the global market leader in collaborative, inter-enterprise business solutions. The company now employs more than 47,804 people, whose commitment and innovative spirit pace our future success. • The 1970s: A Real-Time Vision • In 1972, five former IBM launched a company called Systems Applications and Products in Data Processing in Mannheim, Germany. Their vision: to develop standard application software for real-time business processing. • One year later, the first financial accounting software was complete, forming the basis for the continuous development of other software components in what later came to be known as the "R/1 system." "R" stands for real-time data processing. • By the end of the decade, intensive examination of SAP's IBM database and dialog control system led to the birth of SAP R/2.
The 1980s: Rapid Growth • SAP moved into the company's first building on Max-Planck-Strasse in an industrial park in Walldorf, near Heidelberg. Their software development area and its 50 terminals were all now under one roof. Fifty of the 100 largest German industrial firms were already SAP customers. • The SAP R/2 system attained the high level of stability of the previous generation of programs. Keeping in mind its multinational customers, SAP designed SAP R/2 to handle different languages and currencies. With this and other innovations in SAP R/2, SAP saw rapid growth. • By the middle of the decade, SAP found its first sales organization outside Germany, in Austria. The company makes its first appearance at the CeBIT computer fair in Hanover, Germany. Revenues reach DM 100 million (around $52 million), earlier than expected. • In August 1988, starting on November 4, 1.2 million shares were listed on the Frankfurt and Stuttgart stock exchanges. • Germany's renowned business journal, manager magazine, named SAP its Company of the Year – a distinction they received twice more in the next few years. • With the founding of subsidiaries in Denmark, Sweden, Italy, and the United States, SAP's international expansion takes a leap forward.
The 1990s: A New Approach to Software and Solutions • SAP R/3 was unleashed on the market. The client-server concept, uniform appearance of graphical interfaces, consistent use of relational databases, and the ability to run on computers from different vendors met with overwhelming approval. With SAP R/3, SAP ushered in a new generation of enterprise software – from mainframe computing to the three-tier architecture of database, application, and user interface. • The new Sales and Development Center in Walldorf officially opened it doors. It symbolized the global success of the company. In their twentieth year, their business outside Germany exceeds 50 percent of total sales for the first time. • By 1996, the company had earned 1,089 new SAP R/3 customers. At the end of the year, SAP R/3 had been installed in more than 9,000 systems worldwide. • SAP celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary in 1997 and now employs approximately 12,900 people. Henning Kagermann became Co-Chairman and CEO of SAP AG with Hadso Plattner. On August 3, 1998, the letters S-A-P appear for the first time on the Big Board at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the largest stock exchange in the world.
As the decade drew to a close, Hadso Plattner, Co-Founder, Co-Chairman, and CEO announced the mySAP.com strategy, heralding the beginning of a new direction for the company and their product portfolio. mySAP.com links e-commerce solutions to existing ERP applications, using state-of-the-art Web technology. • The 2000s: Innovation for the New Millennium • With the Internet, the user became the focus of software applications. SAP developed SAP Workplace and paved the way for the idea of an enterprise portal and role-specific access to information. • Currently, more than 12 million users work each day with SAP solutions. With 140,000 installations worldwide. More than 2,400 certified partners, over 26 industry-specific business solutions, and more than 75,000 customers in 120 countries.
