Infosys recognized as a ‘Leader’ in IDC MarketScape 2018 for worldwide SAP implementation services ecosystem

IDC released its MarketScape report on SAP implementation services recognizing Infosys, an SAP Global Services Partner, as a ‘Leader’ in this space.


The report assessed 11 SAP applications systems integrators (SIs) with global scale and broad portfolios across IDC's research areas. The report rates Infosys highly in terms of its offerings/functionality roadmap and the productivity of its innovation/R&D. Infosys was also acknowledged for its integrated SAP services for organizational change management (organization readiness and user adoption), SAP-enabled business transformation, business value realization/value governance, and program management.

Ali Zaidi and Gard Little, the lead analysts of the report, recommend that buyers consider Infosys when blending their legacy SAP environment with the capabilities of S/4HANA, particularly when Leonardo is a top priority. The key Infosys differentiator is how they merge new and traditional services while successfully integrating these with other implementation experts in the SAP ecosystem. These capabilities have proved beneficial for first-time clients attempting to go live with SAP S/4HANA Finance (formerly SAP Simple Finance).
