The revised sales outlook, according to Reuters, has been increased from a 70-100% growth expectancy to a 100-135% growth expectancy, representing a significant change.

This rise would equate to sales of approximately €30mn to €35mn, up from the previously predicted €25mn to €30mn. The unit achieved sales of €14.9mn in 2017.

The strong performances come just months after Software AG spun off its IoT and cloud business as a separate division in January, with strong results reflected in first quarter sales rising 125% year-over-year to €6.4mn.

The IoT cloud business is expected to grow significantly faster than its Digital Business Platform, with a forecast growth of between 3-7%, having achieved total sales of €441.5mn.
