A Cut Above the Rest

SAP Pinnacle Award Winners Help Customers Run Simple

SAPinsider, Volume 16, Issue 4

October 9, 2015

Of SAP’s more than 13,000 global partners, just 19 organizations across 22 categories were selected for the prestigious SAP Pinnacle Awards in 2015. Learn which partners went the extra mile to leverage the latest innovations such as cloud powered by SAP HANA, platform, and business analytics. Categories included cloud, exponential growth, and value creation.


SAP’s Global Partner Operations organization is proud to honor exemplary performance that is a cut above the rest. Through our distinguished SAP Pinnacle Awards, we recognize the contributions of leading partners that deliver value and help our customers run simple. With more than 13,000 partners worldwide, only 19 organizations across 22 categories were selected for this prestigious award in 2015. These winning partners leveraged the latest innovations, such as cloud powered by SAP HANA, platform, and business analytics, while exceeding customer expectations in many areas, including time frame, budget, service, support, and business expertise.


This is my second year as an SAP Pinnacle Awards judge, and I’m even more impressed with the nominees from this year than I was the first time around. The ability to go the extra mile and turn a project into a collaborative partnership was evident in each of the nominations. I think we were able to identify a clear winner, but the overall excellence of the submissions made the margin of victory relatively small. The Pinnacle Awards really highlight the win/win/win nature of SAP’s relationship with its partners and customers.
