SAP AG Research Report

Enterprise application developer SAP has expanded its insurance portfolio with
the acquisition of Camilion, a provider of insurance product development,
product life-cycle and underwriting products for insurance companies. SAP
management says the products that will result from the deal would help insurers
grow their businesses and reduce costs, as they believe that many such companies
are still using outdated systems. In addition, the company has now entered the
market for integrated core insurance platforms, which SAP calls the industry's
first "Super Suite." As a result, shares rose 0.9 percent, closing at  $83.44.
