SAP Quality Awards 2012 – Winners

November 16, 2012 by Jacqueline Prause

SAP announced the winners of the 2012 SAP Quality Awards for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) in a special ceremony held on November 14 at SAPPHIRE NOW in Madrid.

More than 200 people attended the ceremony, hosted by Franck Cohen, president of EMEA at SAP, and Michael Kleinemeier, regional president DACH (German-speaking countries of Europe) and president end-to-end services at SAP. Highlighting the significance of the awards, Cohen said, “The SAP Quality Awards celebrate the very best quality standards of customer projects that show excellent project management and execution, as well as delivery of significant business benefits quickly and smoothly.”

Those in attendance were customers whose SAP projects were under evaluation for the awards and the SAP partners who had supported them. These customers had already won a gold award at the local level and had been shortlisted to present their projects to an external, expert judging panel. Their projects were judged against adherence to SAP’s 10 quality principles (see evaluation criteria), demonstration of time to value, and a focus of how quality excellence was achieved through the entire implementation cycle. Cohen noted that all of the finalists demonstrated excellent project management and execution, rapid time to value, and the ability to effectively address the requirements of the business while minimizing complexity.

“I would like to extend my congratulations to all the regional winners and to each and every one of the customers that we recognized through this program,” said Cohen. “Their winning stories demonstrate that when quality principles are placed at the core technology implementations can be smooth, timely, and highly effective.”

Awards were presented for four categories: innovation, small implementation, medium implementation, and large implementation. Gold, silver, and bronze award were given for each category. For more information on the local market unit winners, check out the SAP Quality Awards 2012 Winners.
