It can take a lot of processes to run companies and SAP's software aims to keep them operating smoothly. SAP is the leading provider of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software used to integrate back-office functions such as distribution, accounting, human resources, and manufacturing. Its clients are mainly in the service, manufacturing, and consumer industries, but also in public services and financial services. The backbone of SAP's products has been its on-premise offerings, spearheaded by its Business Suite, which includes ERP and customer relationship management (CRM) software, among others. In recent years, the company has been shifting its products to the cloud. The EMEA region (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) makes up half of sales, while the US brings in a quarter.
