With the HANA in-memory database and the new software solution S/4HANA, SAP offers companies the tools for digital transformation. However, for digital change, it is a prerequisite that the new SAP technologies are not only considered on the IT side. In this context, it is up to the service providers to build bridges between IT and business. For this reason, in addition to IT expertise, also industry and process know-how of active service providers in Germany was evaluated in the latest study by the Experton Group and West Trax. The ranking of the service providers took place within the framework of an independent research and evaluation process from June to August 2016. The “SAP HANA Vendors in Comparison” vendor benchmark offers users a market overview and concrete decision-making support when choosing service providers in the SAP HANA environment in the German market.
In their study, the Experton Group and West Trax classified Q_PERIOR as a leader. “We have implemented many projects in the HANA environment at the interface of business and IT and are one of the early adopters, also for S/4HANA”, says Walter Kuhlmann, partner at Q_PERIOR. “Customers demand a holistic approach from their service providers, which takes into account strategy, IT and processes. We can meet these expectations with our technical and IT expertise as well as our experience.”
