SAP has had a good year on the back of the high growth in the cloud segments as the S/HANA platforms has already been adopted by 9500+, up 37% YOY. However, SAP’s software business is expected to continue dragging on its top-line and bottom-line due to the shift from on-premise to cloud platform, but the company is expected to more than offset the same with high growth in the Cloud platform and Digital supply chain solutions.

The company has increased their outlook three times in the year, with each quarterly result, which tells us that the company has been doing much better then the management expectations this year.
