New IDC MarketScape Predicts Customers Will Welcome the Extension and Backing of SAP as it Extends Offerings

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

International Data Corporation (IDC) has published a new MarketScape report profiling and positioning the leading vendors participating in the worldwide SAP (News - Alert) implementation ecosystem. This research found that as SAP extends its hosted offerings and cloud-based delivery models, customers will welcome the extension and backing of SAP.

"The SAP implementation services market has evolved in four critical areas since our last evaluation in 2012; namely the development of SAP HANA as a platform, more industry-specific and cloud-based SAP solutions, a new focus on customer experience and digital marketing, and an emphasis on intellectual property including Rapid Deployment Solutions," says Ali Zaidi, Senior Analyst, IT Consulting and Systems Integration Business Strategies at IDC (News - Alert).

The report, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SAP Implementation Services 2014 Vendor Assessment (IDC #248305), evaluates the following 14 vendors - Accenture, Atos, Capgemini, CSC, Deloitte, EY, Fujitsu, HCL, HP, IBM (News - Alert), Infosys, PwC, TCS, and Wipro.

This IDC MarketScape methodology placed Accenture, HCL and IBM in the "Leaders" category. Accenture's (News - Alert) ability to provide functional and industry insights and competence in both of those areas, as well as their application of proven methodologies and tools helped place them as one of the leading implementers and innovators of SAP globally. For HCL, their ability to meet project timelines and provide technical and functional insights and competence in both of those areas, helped place them as leaders in IDC MarketScape methodology. IBM's ability to meet project timelines, integrate their own team with that of the client's on a project and their capability to communicate the value of its services or solution and delivery of methodologies or tools clients are consuming scored high among buyers' perceptions.
