“Having a strong partner ecosystem is critical to SAP’s success and instrumental in helping SAP extend its global reach,” said Eric Duffaut, president, Global Ecosystem and Channels, SAP. “SAP global services partners must demonstrate repeated implementation success, along with a commitment to invest in a worldwide presence, while supporting SAP’s vision of helping our customers run better. Neoris exemplifies this commitment and we look forward to working together on future customer collaborations.”
