and outsourcing services and an SAP® services partner, today announced it has been certified by SAP AG
as a provider of solution implementation based on the Run SAP methodology. Capgemini will incorporate

process operations, and administration of SAP solutions. The methodology describes how support should be
implemented across the lifecycle design, set-up, operations and optimization. In addition, with its best-practice
documents for solution operations, it describes how to implement end-to-end solution operations for different
SAP software-based business processes.
“We applaud Capgemini’s achievement as an SAP services partner certified in the Run SAP methodology,” said
