Why do we invest in this partnership with SAP? Because together we deliver better solutions and services to our clients. We’ve embraced the RDS approach as part of our co-innovation model with our clients. This award reflects the depth and breadth of our partnership with and commitment to SAP and to the success of our joint clients.
