In 1972, five former IBM employees – Dietmar Hopp, Hans-Werner Hector, Hasso Plattner, Klaus Tschira, and Claus Wellenreuther – launch 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.

The 1980s: Rapid Growth

By the middle of the decade, SAP founds its first sales organization outside Germany, in Austria.. Revenues reach DM 100 million (around $52 million)

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

By 1996, the company has earned 1,089 new SAP R/3 customers. At the end of the year, SAP R/3 has been installed in more than 9,000 systems worldwide.

The 2000s: Innovation for the New Millennium

With the Internet, the user becomes the focus of software applications. SAP develops SAP Workplace and paves 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. There are now 140,000 installations worldwide, More than 2,400 certified partners, over 25 industry-specific business solutions, and more than 75,000 customers in 120 countries.
