Accenture (NYSE: ACN) announced it has received SAP® Asia Pacific Japan Awards for Partner Excellence 2022 in two categories: Sustainability Impact and SAP Business Technology Platform. Awards were presented by SAP to the top-performing ecosystem partners in the Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region that have made outstanding contributions to driving digital transformation for businesses that use SAP solutions. Recipients – in collaboration with SAP – help customers adopt innovation, gain results rapidly, grow sustainably and run more simply with SAP solutions.
These awards recognize Accenture’s business and sustainability transformation innovations for businesses. In April 2021, Accenture and SAP announced plans to help companies embed sustainability across the spectrum of their business operations. To support deployments of RISE with SAP, Accenture also launched SOAR with Accenture, a collection of assets and services that can enable business transformation across specific industries and functions.
Bruce McKinnon, lead for the Accenture SAP Business Group in Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, said: “To thrive in an era of disruption, leaders need to innovate to take their business to new heights. Working with SAP, we are helping our clients go faster and further by combining leading technologies and skillsets with in-depth industry insights. Being recognized in the areas of sustainability impact and use of SAP Business Technology Platform will help spur further innovations with SAP, helping to enable companies to choose the right blend of integrated solutions that help drive agility, innovation and a more sustainable future.”
“SAP Awards for Partner Excellence recognise the commitment, innovation and success that partners across the region bring to our joint customers and to the industries they serve,” said Cathy Ward, chief operating officer, SAP Asia Pacific Japan. “I’m delighted to congratulate Accenture for their achievements. We look forward to building upon our strong and collaborative foundation to drive our mutual customers’ success.”
Selected from SAP’s large and diverse ecosystem partner base, nominations for an SAP Award for Partner Excellence are based on SAP’s internal sales data. A committee composed of regional and global SAP representatives determine winning ecosystem partners in each category according to criteria such as sales achievement and performance. Awards are presented in a variety of categories, including overall sales, innovation, technology, services and solution-specific areas.
