Some of our subsidiaries also achieved ratings among the top 20. This recognition is both an honor and an incentive. We transform. Trust into value.”

In the study “IT Champions: SAP Consultants”, the IMWF and the IT magazine Computerwoche investigated the reputation of 100 SAP consulting companies as suppliers on the basis of a social listening exercise.

itelligence came out the clear winner. With 100 points, the consulting company, which is part of NTT DATA, set the industry standard in the study. With 84.4 points, the itelligence subsidiary Sybit GmbH came 7th, and Gisa GmbH came 16th with 62.5 points.

For the social listening, the analysts from the IMWF collected over 438 million postings from online sources such as news sites, forums, blogs and social media channels during the period from October 2020 to November 2020. This information was analyzed with the aid of neural networks and other AI methods.

The comparison results were based on the evaluation of the performance of the respective SAP consulting company as an employer, of the management’s skills and innovation strengths, and of the company’s profitability and sustainability, as well as on the users’ verdicts regarding products and services. In a sentiment analysis, all the statements were divided into the categories ‘positive’, ‘neutral’ and ‘negative’. All six dimensions were weighted equally to arrive at the overall reputation of each company. The achieved number of points was derived from the tonality of the postings and their reach across the internet.
