SAP NEWSBYTE — SAP is pleased to announce that Barclays has been selected as one of SAP’s 2011 Customer Centre of Excellence award winners. Barclays, who won the category ‘Best Practices in Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Run SAP like a Factory’, was found by the judges to demonstrate an extreme commitment to adopt procedures and methodology of ALM and used the Advanced Customer Centre of Excellence as an initiative to improve collaboration internally with the business and enforce business value reporting from IT.
In addition, Barclays was the first customer in SAP UK and Ireland to become Advanced Customer Centre of Excellence certified. The accreditation was completed in record time of six months, well below the norm and was awarded only after the site was audited by an SAP independent team. Barclays was the first financial services organisation to receive the accreditation.
