- IBM soundly missed revenue estimates for yet another quarter, thanks in large part to a 23% Y/Y drop in hardware/chip sales, and also reported a $3B Y/Y drop for its services backlog. SAP missed Q1 estimates due to a mixture of forex pressure and light software license revenue.
- Microsoft (MSFT -1.4%), whose enterprise software ops compete against both IBM (middleware, databases, developer tools) and SAP (ERP/CRM apps, databases), is trading lower. As is IBM archrival H-P (HPQ -2.6%).
- A few enterprise cloud software vendors, some of whom compete against SAP, are also off: JIVE -3.5%. N -2%. VEEV -1.9%. MKTO -2.2%.
