After a never-ending winter here in Germany, it’s finally springtime. The sun is shining, it’s getting warmer day by day, flowers and trees are blooming and… it’s SAP Pinnacle Awards time again, as it is every year during this season.
Just like spring, this is something I always look forward to, and I think my fellow colleagues across the globe feel the same way. Why is that?
After organizing SAP strategy and planning meetings, attending enablement courses on SAP’s latest and greatest innovations, running marketing campaigns and events, organizing customer meetings and solution demos and selling SAP software licenses, cloud subscriptions and related services, each and every employee of itelligence finally receives recognition for all those efforts from its most important partner: SAP SE.
SAP’s annual SAP Pinnacle Award program puts their most outstanding partners in the spotlight. itelligence | NTT DATA Business Solutions is one of those SAP partners which has been put in the spotlight, not just once, not just twice, not just three times, but 4 times! I’m loving it!
We have been selected as a winner in the following three categories:
- SAP Partner of the Year – Database and Data Management
This award recognizes an SAP partner engaged in database and data management who has delivered the greatest revenue impact and who has a solid business plan for continued partnership success.
