NTT DATA and itelligence Maintain Top 5 Ranking in Lünendonk List 2019

According to the Lünendonk List 2019, NTT DATA and itelligence figure among Germany’s leading IT consulting and system integration companies

The leading provider of business and IT solutions NTT DATA and itelligence AG, the world-leading SAP consulting firm, were together ranked 5th in the “Lünendonk List 2019”, same as last year. During 2018, the two companies were able to increase their sales year-on-year from 702 to 754.6 million euros, i.e. by over 50 million euros. That corresponds to an increase of over 7%. Over the same period, the number of employees rose by some 300 to over 4600.

“Thanks to strong increases in sales and the continued growth in our workforce, we once again figure among the top 5 of Germany’s IT service providers this year,” said Swen Rehders, CEO NTT DATA Germany and Deputy CEO NTT DATA EMEA. “This ranking underlines our good market position in Germany and encourages us in our efforts to achieve sustained and long-term growth, which is not least also reflected in our continually rising number of employees. Outstanding commitment, a wide-ranging portfolio, our global innovation network, and a consulting concept that spans the entire value chain have formed the basis of this good ranking. Our success motivates us to press ahead along this path and to lead our customers into a successful digital future, acting as collaborative partners.”

Norbert Rotter, CEO of itelligence AG, sees the repeated excellent ranking of his company in the “Lünendonk List 2019” as a reflection of a 30-year SAP success story that has been characterized above all by steady growth, a high level of innovative strength, and industry focus from the very start. This portfolio is now extended by new front-end solutions. According to CEO Norbert Rotter, this is illustrated not only by the recent SAP Innovation Award in the “Process Innovator” category, but also by the company’s projects in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Itelligence has thus been one of the first SAP partners to offer extensive support in the area of AI to a customer, namely automotive manufacturer KIA in Denmark.

Norbert Rotter: “We are continuing on our global growth path, now with almost 9,000 employees worldwide, with Germany as a very important market.

Lünendonk & Hossenfelder GmbH has been rating the best German service providers for over 20 years already and publishes the results in its annual “Lünendonk Lists”.
