New RISE with SAP Cloud Service Adopters in Japan Unveiled


One of the world’s leading manufacturers of quartz crystals and a recently established cement company add to the list of global clients that have trusted RISE with SAP cloud service offering to propel their business transformation. 

German tech giant SAP has earlier acknowledged the remarkable contribution of the Asia Pacific and Japan region in its stellar quarter three performance in line with the company’s accelerating cloud momentum worldwide. A double-digit cloud revenue increase of 27% (411M Euros) over the same period in 2021 bolstered SAP’s third-quarter revenue reaching 1.1B Euros, a 5% increase over the same period in 2021.

SAP APJ President Paul Marriott highlighted that customers in the region have found outstanding value in the software enterprise company’s cloud play and best-in-suite portfolio, including RISE with SAP, to help organizations embark on business transformation among many other urgent challenges. Tokyo-headquartered multinational imaging and electronics company Ricoh Co., Ltd. and Indian multinational consumer goods company Dabur Ltd. were among SAP’s big customer wins last quarter. 

Before November ends, two more Japanese corporations joined the roster of SAP’s notable clients in the region that have adopted RISE with SAP to advance their digital transformation.
