Independent Research Firm Names Satyam a Global SAP Implementation Leader
Report rates Satyam as No. 1 in current offerings amongst Indian organizations
HYDERABAD, India, Dec. 29, 2007—Satyam Computer Services Ltd. (NYSE: SAY), a leading business and information technology services provider, today announced that Forrester Research has named the company a leader in SAP implementation capabilities. “The Forrester WaveTM: SAP Implementation Providers, Q4, 2007 (December 2007)” places Satyam in the same category as companies heading “an extremely well qualified pack.”
The report states “Satyam has a strong overall value proposition in addition to a long track record
with SAP. Its client satisfaction scores are high, its pricing is reasonable, and a large number of clients were willing to attest to its value.”
“It is certainly true that our customers have been our greatest assets and references,” Mehta said. “Our achievements are a direct result of our commitment to delivery excellence and the demonstrated value of our SAP implementations. We always try to exceed our customers’ expectations, and our recognition in the report reflects these efforts.”
The report is especially relevant because demand for SAP services continues to grow globally, as organizations increasingly leverage the ERP provider’s expanding portfolio of offerings. In addition, many existing customers need to upgrade to newer versions of SAP.
“We are pleased to be recognized as a leader by Forrester Research and rated as no.1 in current offering amongst Indian organization,” said Manish Mehta, Global Head, Director and Senior Vice President – SAP & Testing Practice. “We are proud of our exceptional SAP expertise, and of our ability to help our customers in a broad range of industries gain the maximum benefit from their ERP investments. As the report noted, we continue to invest in our SAP Practice, and this is evidenced by our increasing number of end-to-end implementations. Companies all over the globe benefit from those efforts, as well as the skills of our SAP consultants.”
The report is the result of information compiled by Forrester by researching the world’s leading SAP implementation organizations on 108 evaluation criteria. It noted that Satyam is an especially good fit for companies that “need experienced SAP technical skills,” and those that “require vertical knowledge in the manufacturing, high-tech, or semiconductor industries.”
Moreover, the report praises Satyam’s implementation capabilities. “Not surprisingly, given its strong SAP methodology as well as internally developed engagement aids and implementation experience, Satyam scores strongly in the implementation portion of this survey,” the report said. Satyam’s skills in strategy, post-implementation, remote delivery, overall vision, and overall value were also noted.
Forrester is one of several independent industry analysts to recognize Satyam in SAP services recently. The report is available from Forrester Research (www.forrester.com.)
