MGI 360 Ratings - SAP-RevSym in Automated Revenue Management

MGI 360 LogoSUMMARY: We initiate coverage of SAP RevSym in Automated Revenue Management (ARM) market with MGI360 Rating of 55 and a NEUTRAL outlook.
OPINION: SAP currently offers two ARM solutions; RevSym, a multi-tenant cloud solution, and RAR, a single-tenant offering. This rating covers the RevSym product, as it currently receives a reasonable share of SAP investment. The RevSym product has been in the market for about three year with a few owners, under the leadership of SAP, sales are increasing. RevSym benefits from a founding team with deep roots in revenue recognition and a cloud-first architecture. Growth is above market average, albeit off of a very small installed base. The first wave of mainstream go-lives took place this year. RevSym is gradually growing (moving / expanding) into its promising early vision. Although it is owned by SAP, prospects should evaluate the product on a completely stand-alone basis and recognize that overtime the technology base will edge toward the SAP’s road to HANA and SAP’s Intelligent Enterprise. Over time SAP will need to address the convergence of RevSym and RAR which supports HANA and continues to get investment and customers.
USE CASE: Mid-market enterprises seeking public cloud-based, stand-alone revenue scheduling and automation functionality
COMPANY DESCRIPTION: SAP SE [NYSE: SAP] is a leading global provider of enterprise software solutions. SAP completed the acquisition of Callidus Software in April 2018. Callidus had acquired RevSym less than 12 months prior. SAP maintains a global sales and marketing presence.
COMPETITORS: Aptitude, Oracle-NetSuite, Softrax, Workday, Zuora
