Capgemini today announced that they have been awarded a 2009 SAP® Pinnacle Award
in the category Top Company Contributor – BPX (Business Process Expert) Community.
SAP Pinnacle Awards were granted to leading SAP partners that have excelled in
enhancing the customer experience, addressing critical issues such as accelerating
co-innovation and improving return on investment. Winners were selected based
on over 300 nominations, twice the amount in 2008, received from partners and
SAP employees. Capgemini received the award at a special awards ceremony held
on the eve of SAPPHIRE® 2009, SAP’s international customer conference held in
Orlando, Fla. May 11 – 14.

“Capgemini is proud to be recognized among SAP’s thriving partner ecosystem with
this prestigious award. This marks the third time in the past four years we’ve
been honored with an SAP Pinnacle Award,”
said Renate Radon, vice president, Global Alliance Executive at Capgemini. “This award once again demonstrates that our clients can rely on our capabilities
to implement new, innovative technologies and solutions for superior performance
and first-mover advantage, thanks to our close partnership with SAP.”

Capgemini and SAP have worked together for more than 20 years. The relationship
has created a wealth of experience particularly around new architectures and technologies,
such as SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework methodology for service-oriented
architecture (SOA), as well as new solutions with specific industry focuses. Capgemini’s
close collaboration with SAP in client engagement, as well as solution development,
provides the team with deep insights into SAP’s products and how they can be best
leveraged to meet client demands.

This SAP Pinnacle Award recognizes Capgemini’s contribution to the BPX community.
BPX generates information and analysis regarding the tasks of a business process
expert, such as modeling, process architecture and design, process-driven project
management, BPM methodology, end-to-end process descriptions, and industry-specific
process improvement scenarios.

“SAP is committed to fostering an ecosystem that is driven by co-innovation and
which uniquely provides solutions and services that help customers meet their
most pressing challenges,”
said Zia Yusuf, executive vice president, Global Ecosystem and Partner Group,
SAP. “SAP Pinnacle Awards recognize those partners that have consistently demonstrated
excellence in delivering value-focused and cost-effective solutions and services
which help customers address their industry and business process needs. We thank
Capgemini for their dedication and passion to teaming with SAP to help extend
the value of a customer-focused ecosystem.”
