It's all about the cloud for SAP in its Q3, 2015 results announcement today, with the company posting cloud subscription and support revenues of €600m, up 116 per cent on last year - and a slightly less heady 90 per cent at constant currencies.
Even less heady, new acquisition Concur delivered €149m of the growth.
New cloud bookings were up 102 per cent to €216m - SAP says this is a key measurement of success in the cloud.
And quite right too, as there is no fudging provided by the strong-arm licensing and gold-plated support contracts so beloved by the enterprise software vendors.
Total revenue for the quarter climbed 17 per cent 4.98bn and operating profit was up 5 per cent to $1.21bn.
The revenue figure shows that SAP has a long way to effect a transition to complete cloudiness.
But this cautious and conservative company also displays its determination to build and buy its way into relevance for this SaaS-tastic age. ®
