Deloitte named a leader in North America in SAP Application Services
NEW YORK, NY, USA, 15 March, 2017—Deloitte announced today that Gartner has named it as a leader in North America in SAP Application Services in its January 2017 report titled, Magic Quadrant for SAP Application Services, North America.
Deloitte believes this recognition helps validate its leadership in providing North American organizations with the strategy, systems integration, and related services they require to transform their enterprise with SAP applications.
“Our clients continue to seek rapid business transformation to respond to escalating customer demands, the need for greater data insight, and an increasingly competitive business landscape,” said Kevin Walsh, Global Technology Leader, Deloitte UK. “They see the clear benefits that SAP applications can bring to address those challenges, but they also understand that unlocking maximum value requires the business and technology expertise that Deloitte provides. We are honored that Gartner has recognized us for our leadership in SAP Application Services in North America.”
Deloitte believes leadership in the enterprise applications space stands to become even more critical as the digital economy evolves. According to Gartner, “New and emerging technologies like the IoT, augmented reality and blockchain, new delivery models like cloud, and new form factors like smartphones and wearables also add to the pressure on enterprise applications. The need for a strong core ERP backbone to act as a solid foundation on which to layer additional business models and channels is ever-more acute.”
Gartner defines leaders as “performing well today, gaining traction and mind share in the market; they have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market…The Magic Quadrant is focused on the full life cycle of SAP application services, spanning project-based implementation and multiyear application management services (AMS).”
