The enterprise software vendor expects revenue to rise 15 to 20 percent in the second quarter.

Computerworld: Enterprise software vendor SAP has released preliminary financial data for the first quarter, and the company said revenue climbed 11 percent compared to last year, hitting €3.35 billion ($4.36 billion). However, margins declined from 19.7 percent in 2011 to 18.8 percent this year, for total income of €630 million ($820 million).
