ANZ celebrates solid growth

Executives at SAP ANZ are on a high after the company reported 20% revenue growth for 2005.

Geraldine McBride, SAP ANZ CEO and managing director, describes 2005 as the year her company turned talk into action.

“One of the reasons for our success is the fact we think globally but act locally. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region and SAP now holds 70% market share,” she says.

McBride says SAP’s safe passage programme saw a significant number of customers switch from Oracle and its acquired subsidiaries including Foodstuffs South Island.

“Last year SAP signed around 1,500 new customers — that’s six a day — in the Asia-Pacific region.”

McBride points out SAP made great strides in the small to medium enterprise (SME) market growing it by 45%, making it the fastest area of revenue growth in ANZ.

The company also signed partnerships with several ISVs, including Fujitsu ANZ, using SAPNetWeaver to develop modular software products and more than 270,000 NetWeaver users were added to the existing ANZ user base.

McBride is confident SAP will continue its growth path this year and says her team is looking at how to maximise coverage in this market.
