Last week we announced the exciting acquisition of Charlotte, N.C.-based Symphony Management Consulting, an SAP and SuccessFactors partner in North America specializing in human capital management (HCM) consulting services, thereby strengthening our capacity in SuccessFactors consulting and expanding our opportunities in the cloud. Addressing this significant move, Steve Niesman, president and CEO, itelligence North America, said, “Symphony has shown continuous growth since partnering with SAP in 2006 and becoming a SuccessFactors premier partner two and a half years ago.” He added, “They’ve proven their effectiveness in implementing SAP cloud applications for a wide range of industry segments, and this acquisition will immediately expand itelligence’s cloud footprint through a dedicated global practice, complement our capabilities, and increase our high-growth cross-selling opportunities.”
Norbert Rotter, CFO, itelligence AG, added, “This strategic acquisition serves to further fortify itelligence’s presence in the U.S. and expand our regional and global market presence, especially in strong-performing SAP areas. By adding Symphony’s significant SuccessFactors and cloud experience, we’re better positioned to capture the full attention of our customer’s departmental business executives with our expanded capability and deliver full SAP value together through end-to-end business visibility, integrated planning, execution and consolidated reporting.”
Stay tuned for more great things to come from itelligence and Symphony in 2014 and beyond!
