Paris, December 21st 2016
Atos, an international leader in digital services, again belongs to the leading companies for SAP HANA services in the German market – this is the result of the latest edition of the SAP HANA Vendor Benchmark 2017 of Experton Group, part of the Information Services Group (ISG), and West Trax.
In four of the five examination categories – SAP HANA Multi-Serviceprovider, SAP S/4HANA Serviceprovider, SAP HANA technology provider and SAP HANA process service provider – Atos Germany is positioned in the leader quadrant.
Already from the predecessor study Atos emerged as a leading provider. The main focus of this year's independent study was a holistic approach that encompasses all aspects of SAP HANA: ideas, strategy, process redesign, the actual implementation of a migration through on-premise or cloud solutions, and the required security solutions. A total of 51 relevant SAP HANA service providers were compared.
In the SAP HANA Multi-Service Provider category, Atos Germany is at the top of the companies surveyed in the Leader Quadrant. In this category the study searched for service providers who could demonstrate a broad range of solutions in their portfolio and deliver an end-to-end offer to customers. This ranges from strategic consulting to process and technology analysis to implementation and support. The integration of the SAP HANA competences into the overall portfolio and the long-term strategy were also examined. Atos is convincing here with its high integration know-how, strong references as well as the close integration with industry 4.0 and digitization.
In the evaluation of the SAP S/4HANA service providers, Atos Germany is one of the leading service providers in Germany. The focus here was among other things on S/4HANA with regards to the portfolio depth, methods and implementation. The consultancy and implementation capacities were also analyzed. The SAP organizational unit of Atos in Germany is convincing, as well as specially developed solutions and innovations and references.
When analyzing the SAP HANA process service providers, Atos Germany also leads the top group. At the same time the service provider scores with the close exchange between the own digitization and industry 4.0 experts. The deep understanding of the analysis and transformation of process and business models can be seen in convincing business or showcases and corresponding templates.
Technological solution scenarios with a focus on architecture, infrastructure, operations and business were at the center of the category SAP HANA technology providers. Atos is one of the leading companies in this category thanks to its integration know-how, flexible delivery models and networking with a global delivery platform.
„Atos has also been convincing in the second edition of the SAP HANA Vendor Benchmark as well and continues to hold a leading position among the vendors in the German market thanks to the comprehensive service portfolio, many years of experience and the wide range of competences”, says Frank Schmeiler, project head of the benchmark and Research Director at Experton Group.
Winfried Holz, CEO Atos Germany, says “The vendor benchmark of Experton and West Trax shows that Atos Germany is the first choice as a service provider for all aspects of SAP HANA. This competence is part of our core elements, whereby we put great importance to the holistic approach and the end-to-end support of our customers.“
