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.

For partners, winning an SAP Pinnacle Award is a big deal. For customers, it’s a very important sign of the partner’s success with SAP technology.

Looking Ahead to the 2016 Awards

Partners make SAP relevant. They are instrumental in delivering our solutions to customers. And they are also responsible for the majority of new SAP customers every quarter.
