The EMEA & DACH FKOM, the SAP field kick-off meeting for the DACH region (Germany,AustriaandSwitzerland) and EMEA (Europe excluding DACH), was held last week inMilan.
Around 4,400 people attended, including 600 partners. A wide range of information was provided on the products and the related sales & marketing strategy, but above all, the successes of 2011 were hailed.
Partners are a big part of SAP’s success
SAP looked back on its most successful year ever, and was in the mood to celebrate. Jim Hagemann Snabe (SAP director), Eric Duffaut (President Global Ecosystem) and Michael Kleinemeier (President DACH Region) mentioned the partners throughout their speeches, as they played a big part in this outstanding success.
In addition to the general thanks to all partners, seven special awards were presented. As you can imagine, these awards are much sought-after, and the competition for first place is intense. And first place is exactly what we achieved in the 2011 Volume Reseller of the Year category. It was a great feeling to accept the award on behalf of all itelligence employees.
