Business software provider SAP has registered a 10% rise in EMEA revenues in its preliminary financial results for the third quarter of 2007 over the third quarter of 2006 to $1.77 billion.

The company's total sales for the quarter climbed 9% to reach $3.46 billion during the quarter ending September 30, while total net income grew 10% on year to $582 million.

SAP did not provide a specific breakdown of revenue for the Middle East.

"We are pleased to announce another strong quarter in which we continued to report double-digit growth in software and software related service revenues in each region and additional share gains among core enterprise application vendors," said Henning Kagermann, SAP CEO.
