?We have maintained our consistent track record of growth in the APJ region, with database, technology, and analytics making up 40 percent of our revenue mix,? said Steve Watts, president, SAP Asia Pacific Japan.
?Japan and China grew 36 percent and 43 percent, respectively. This quarter, we saw more customers harness the power of in-memory computing to deal with the surge of mobile devices and data volume in the enterprise.?
Adoption for SAP?s new categories increased in the third quarter: Mobile revenue growth was phenomenal at 111 percent, with China and Southeast Asia reporting triple-digit growth.

Solid growth in the public sector, banking, auto, high tech, and retail industries also contributed to the third-quarter results.
