GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

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. SAP HANA is an in-memory data platform that is deployable as an on-premise appliance or in the cloud. In 2013, it offered products in five market categories: Applications, Analytics, Mobile, Database and Technology, and Cloud, all powered by the SAP HANA platform. Its line-of-business solutions are relevant across all industries, providing best-practice capabilities to key functional areas within an organization. Its portfolio of solutions currently covers 12 lines of business: asset management, corporate strategy and sustainability, finance, human resources, information technology, manufacturing, marketing, procurement, R&D and engineering, sales, service and supply chain management. Its offers targeted solutions for small businesses and midsize companies, including the SAP Business All-in-One solution, the SAP Business One application, and Edge solutions, which combine business management and business intelligence sof
