Business software company SAP has no plans to acquire BlackBerry.

SAP CFO Werner Brandt told a German magazine that "BlackBerry doesn't fit with our strategy," according to Reuters report over the weekend.

BlackBerry is in the middle of fielding possible buyout offers from any number of companies. Citing anonymous sources, Reuters reported earlier this month that SAP was among the companies in talks to possibly acquire part of all of BlackBerry.

Correction, 9:07 a.m. PT: This story initially misstated the source of the interview with SAP CFO Werner Brandt. It was a German magazine.
