SAP Hosting: top marks for T-Systems from PAC – Strength in the cloud
Sep 24, 2015
In its latest survey of the German SAP service provider market ("2015 PAC RADAR SAP Hosting in Germany") the analyst firm PAC gave top marks to the T-Systems competence: twice for "Best in Class" and once as the largest provider in the market. This means that T-Systems is considered by the experts one of the leading service providers for SAP Hosting and SAP Application Management.
In the hosting category – Operation and Management – T-Systems is, according to PAC, the largest provider at present and also ranks among the best. In seven out of eight competency areas, the analysts rate T-Systems well above the average. In the "Skills/Qualifications," "Experience" as well as "Maturity & Quality of Delivery" categories in particular, PAC ranks the Deutsche Telekom subsidiary above the average.
The study looks at both cloud-based and traditional hosting models. In terms of cloud services, PAC highlights above all the "cloudability" of T-Systems as a strength. This term encompasses both the company's own cloud hosting approach and T-Systems' ability to integrate potential IaaS and SaaS solutions.
"In view of the extensive service portfolio, existing resources, competencies and references in the German SAP services market, large enterprises in particular should have T-Systems 'on their radar' as a potential provider," recommends Karsten Leclerque, Principal Consultant and outsourcing/cloud expert at PAC. "Alongside application know-how and industry coverage, PAC also highlights our broad portfolio of SAP solutions. In addition to this, our positioning in innovation topics and our end-to-end delivery capabilities also contributed to this excellent result. Overall, the outcome of the study confirms key points of our cloud strategy," says Ferri Abolhassan, Director of the IT Division at T-Systems. The ICT service provider has achieved the highest SAP partner status; with more than 2.6 million users, it is the largest operator of SAP cloud landscapes in the world, and it has more than 10 years of experience with SAP outsourcing.
