|SAP SE was founded in 1972. It is engaged in the manufacturing of independent software. The Company provides enterprise application software. The Company’s activities are broken down into two divisions, On-Premise and Cloud, which are further divided into operating segments. Its On-Premise division is composed of two operating segments, On-Premise Products and On-Premise Services. Its Cloud division is also composed of two operating segments, Cloud Applications and Ariba. The On-Premise division derives its revenue mainly from the sale of on-premise software (that is, software designed for installation on the customer’s hardware) and mobile software (that is, software designed for use on mobile devices) as well as services relating to such software. The On-Premise Products segment is mainly engaged in marketing and licensing its on-premise and mobile software products and providing support services for them. The On-Premise Services segment performs various professional services, mainly supporting the implementation of its software products and providing education services concerning the use of those software products. The Cloud division earns revenue by providing software for customers to use in the cloud and by providing services relating to that software. The Cloud Applications segment is mainly engaged in marketing and selling subscriptions to cloud software developed by SAP and SuccessFactors. The Ariba segment is mainly engaged in marketing and selling subscriptions to cloud software developed by Ariba for its business commerce network. While this segment is named Ariba, it is not identical to the acquired Ariba business because certain SAP activities have been transferred to its Ariba segment. The Company currently markets its products and services in more than 180 countries and territories in the Americas (including Latin America and North America), APJ, and EMEA regions. Its portfolio offers solutions to customers of all sizes and across 25 industries. The platform for all its solutions is called SAP HANA.
