SAP expects to appeal a decision by a federal jury that it must pay millions to enterprise software vendor Versata for patent infringement, an SAP spokesman said.
SAP also said it doesn't expect any negative impact on customers as a result of the case.
Versata, formerly Trilogy Software, filed the lawsuit in April 2007, alleging that SAP's products and services infringed on one or more of the claims in each of five patents held by Versata, according to an SAP annual report.
On Thursday, according to published reports, a Texas federal jury awarded nearly $139 million to Versata.
According to its website, Versata sells business applications, among them enterprise incentive management, product configuration, business rules management, and pricing and price optimization.
