Tata Consultancy Services gets Partner Impact Awards presented at SAP field kickoff meetingMumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, announced that it has received Partner Impact Awards from SAP (NYSE: SAP) for superior SAP HANA sales performance and SAP practice expansion. The awards were presented during the SAP® Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) Kick-Off Meeting (FKOM) 2012, held recently in Singapore, to the top-performing SAP channel partners and SAP services partners in the APJ region for outstanding contributions that impact overall SAP sales and pipeline-generation goals.
As the recipient of the SAP HANA Impact Award, TCS was honoured for sales performance in revenue. The Commitment to Quality Impact Award, for SAP practice expansion, was awarded to TCS based on the number of consultants ramped up, trained and certified for the SAP environment in 2011.
A steering committee comprising regional and global SAP representatives determined winning partners in each category according to numerous criteria such as sales achievement and performance. TCS received the award during the SAP APJ FKOM 2012, an annual gathering of SAP executives, SAP field employees and partners to learn about SAP’s strategy, sales methodology, best practices, business growth opportunities and product innovations. The theme of this year’s meeting, 'Run better, Win bigger', prominently featured SAP’s innovation story focusing on its core pillars — analytics, cloud, mobility and in-memory computing — as well as solutions for industries and lines of business on a consistent core.
“Our partners’ regional, industry and solution expertise plays a crucial role in driving game-changing co-innovation and expanding our market reach and customer touch points,” said Bronwyn Hastings, senior vice president, ecosystem and channels, SAP APJ. “As a recipient of two 2012 SAP Partner Impact Awards, we recognise TCS’s commitment and efforts in developing and growing its partnership with SAP and driving customer success.”
“We are pleased to see these results from our major investments in business transformation capabilities as well as the solutions we build around SAP HANA, mobility and analytics applications,” said Raman Venkatraman, global head, SAP practice, TCS. “In conjunction with SAP, TCS is well positioned to provide joint customers with integrated, synchronised, and connected enterprise solutions that meet current business and IT demands.”
