Technology research and advisory firm ISG (Information Services Group) has launched a study examining the global marketplace for providers of SAP-related services. It will initially examine products and services available in the US, Germany, the UK, Brazil and the Nordic countries.
ISG, which was founded in 2006 by former VNU / Nielsen exec Michael Connors, is based in Stamford, CT, and employs more than 1,300 people in over twenty countries. The new study has been developed to enable enterprise buyers to use information from the resulting report to evaluate their current SAP (Systems, Applications and Products) vendor relationships, potential new engagements, and available offerings; while ISG advisors will use the information to recommend providers to clients.
As a starting point, ISG has distributed surveys to more than 125 companies providing SAP services. The firm's research team will use the resulting data to produce six quadrants representing the services and products the typical enterprise client is buying in the SAP space. Findings will be published in a Provider Lens report called 'SAP-HANA and Leonardo Ecosystem Partners 2020', scheduled to be released in July.
Lead authors of the report are ISG analysts Blair Hanley Frank (Global), Kartik Subramaniam (US and Archetype), Akhila Harinarayan (UK and Nordics), Pedro Bicudo Maschio (Brazil) and Rainer Suletzki (Germany). Jan Erik Aase (pictured), Director and Global Leader, ISG Provider Lens Research, says the report should help companies refine their partner selection process and find the best performers that offer higher business value.
