NTT DATA Business Solutions AG, formerly itelligence AG, has been awarded as the winner of two 2021 SAP® Pinnacle Awards in recognition of its outstanding achievements as an SAP partner: Global Platinum Reseller of the Year and Partner of the Year for SAP® SuccessFactors® Solutions (Midmarket). In three other categories, NTT Data Business Solutions reached the coveted finalist positions: SAP S/4HANA® Movement, Delivery Excellence and Intelligent Spend Management (Midmarket).

SAP presents these awards annually to the top partners that have excelled in developing and growing their partnership with SAP and helping customers run better. Winners and finalists in 28 categories were chosen based on recommendations from SAP, customer feedback and performance indicators.

“Our partners are key to turning the Intelligent Enterprise into reality,” said Christian Klein, CEO of SAP SE. “Despite challenging times, our ecosystem has once again demonstrated its innovation power, dedication and excellence in helping our customers unlock new ways of running their business. Together, we continue to deliver quality solutions, services and experiences, allowing our customers to thrive and succeed with SAP solutions.”

Norbert Rotter, CEO of NTT DATA Business Solutions, commented: “Winning two SAP Pinnacle Awards and being recognized as a finalist in three categories just after itelligence was rebranded as NTT DATA Business Solutions makes me very proud. This confirms once again that NTT DATA Business Solutions is a leading SAP partner worldwide for small and medium-sized enterprises. And we stand by our promise to do our utmost to help our customers succeed by deploying leading SAP technology and our own solutions. Identifying digital trends and applying SAP solutions means: ‘We Transform. SAP Solutions into Value.’”
