EY is pleased to announce that it has received two SAP Partner Excellence Awards 2016 from SAP.
The awards EY received are:

  • SAP EMEA/MEE Partner Excellence Award 2016 for Fastest-Growing On-Premise & Cloud Business Services
  • SAP North America Partner Excellence Award 2016 for Services Innovation, for EY’s achievements contributions to driving its customers’ digital transformation

Commenting on the EMEA/MEE award, Markus Heinen, Europe, Middle East, India and Africa, (EMEIA) SAP Leader, EY, says:
“We are honored to receive this prestigious award. At EY, we have a comprehensive, business-focused perspective that allows us to address strategy, processes, technology and operational impacts simultaneously. The results speak for themselves: high customer satisfaction and retention, zero escalations and a growth rate with respect to SAP services that exceeds industry averages.”

Commenting on the North America award, Michael Yadgar, Americas SAP Leader, EY, says:
“The award for Services Innovation demonstrates our effective strategy to define the next- generation SAP consulting services organization. EY is building capabilities to help clients transform their business by leveraging SAP’s new S/4HANA digital core and cloud services.”

Nominations for the SAP Partner Excellence Awards were based on internal SAP sales data, selected from its wide-ranging partner base. A steering committee composed of regional and global SAP representatives determined winning partners in each category, according to numerous criteria, such as sales achievement and performance. Awards were presented in a variety of categories, including overall sales, innovation, technology, services and solution-specific areas.

Rodolpho Cardenuto, President, Global Channels & General Business, SAP says:
“SAP congratulates EY for receiving both of these awards. The awards are testament to the amazing work and value that EY continues to deliver. Together with our partners, we deliver simple solutions for growing companies. As we move into 2016, we look forward to continuing to support our partners to grow their opportunities with SAP and to jointly deliver value for our mutual customers.”

Recently, EY announced that it expanded its SAP-related services for clients with its new EY Experience Center for SAP services in Alpharetta, Georgia. The Center is designed to support clients’ efforts to implement SAP S/4HANA, SAP’s next-generation business suite built on the SAP HANA platform, by leveraging technologies such as SAP HANA® Cloud Platform and SAP Fiori®.
