As just announced, renowned research firm IDC recognizes TCS as a Leader in its Worldwide SAP Implementation Services Ecosystem 2016 Vendor Assessment. This achievement is the result of the innovative work that our global team of more than 15,000 SAP consultants consistently delivers to our clients.
It is very gratifying that our work is being recognized by SAP and industry experts. TCS was also honored with an SAP Pinnacle Award for Run SAP Partner of the Year for the fourth consecutive year and Gartner recognized us as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for SAP Application Management Services for the third consecutive year.
To be ranked a leader in SAP implementation services by IDC, systems integrators had to score well in two key categories: capabilities and services aligned to customer needs, and how well the company’s future strategy aligns with what customers will require in three to five years. I am very pleased we scored well in both these areas and that our clients rated us highly for delivering business results and providing valuable insights.
Our focus on the digital forces mobility, cloud, big data, social and artificial intelligence/robotics as well as other emerging technologies positions us to advise our clients through the digital transformation of their businesses. TCS continues to co-innovate with SAP and invest in next-generation technologies and we will be sharing several success stories in these areas with clients at SAPPHIRE NOW, May 17-19.
QIAGEN will tell the story of how it has digitally transformed itself to accelerate customer satisfaction and process efficiencies, and grow revenue. Well also share the stage with Hasbro, CVS, Lexmark, Juniper Networks, and DuraFiber Technologies, to share details on how they have adopted SAP S/4HANA, SAP HANA, and SAP Hybris to digitally transform their business and financial operations.
Whether you are attending SAPPHIRE this year or not, I believe we will all have plenty to discuss well beyond the show around how we move closer to the vision of the digital boardroom of the future. Our team is excited to share our thoughts and industry-specific examples from our experience advising clients as they move to digital business models.
Let us know if youd like to meet with our business consultants and SAP experts to discuss ways to achieve your business objectives by leveraging SAP. From setting the digital transformation strategy to developing technology migration roadmaps and change management and implementation plans, I hope youll give our team a chance to share our expertise.
I look forward to your ideas and questions here and am very excited about the positive impact that next gen technology brings to business.
