Executive Decision: SAP Shows Its Savvy
A number of acquisitions have pushed SAP to the number one spot in the cloud computing space. Cramer speaks to SAP AG co-CEO Bill McDermott about the company's growth prospects and its partnership with Apple.

The technology sector has been tough to invest in lately, Cramer said Friday, but there are some bright spots, including a flurry of recent mergers and acquisitions.

Earlier this week, software maker SAP announced plans to purchase cloud-computing company SuccessFactors for $3.4 billion. This is just the latest in a series of takeovers SAP has made, leading Cramer to believe the German company is moving in the right direction.

Is SAP’s stock a buy, though? To learn more about its future prospects, Cramer welcomed CEO Bill McDermott onto “Mad Money.” Check out the video to see the full interview.
