Can the implementation and impact of innovative ideas be measured? Saugatuck Technology – one of the most renowned US analysts – answers this question with a resounding “yes”, and in New York on November 12th, it honoured Roland Berger Strategy Consultants for its innovative cloud strategy. Roland Berger Strategy Consultants has won the prestigious BEACON AWARD FOR BUSINESS INNOVATION 2014.

The itelligence customer Roland Berger Strategy Consultants uses the SAP® Business ByDesign® solution, SAP’s cloud solution, to provide its business consultants in 50 offices in 36 countries around the world with quick and effective access to all the necessary management tools.

Daniel Gerster, CIO of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants says: “As cloud-based software, SAP Business ByDesign provides the central platform required to manage closely-interlocked business operations in a standardized way and supported by IT.
