Ovum BYOX Strategy Award 2013
Oooops we did it again…
It gives me great pleasure to announce an outstanding win for Global IT. Under the leadership of Ralph Salomon, Maximilian Adrian, and Alex Guitman, the Global IT Security and Risk team has become the proud winner of the Ovum BYOX Strategy Award 2013.
Organized by independent market analyst, Ovum, the BYOX Strategy Awards recognize companies driving innovation in the area of BYOD. SAP Global IT impressed the judges by demonstrating the success of the SAP Runs SAP program in which employees use their preferred mobile devices and applications to better collaborate, access information, and influence key business decisions – anytime, anywhere, and with the peace of mind of a secure network.
The jury was most impressed by our approach of addressing the consumerization of IT trend, allowing employees to own a single device for both business and personal use.
Currently in their third year, the Ovum BYOX Strategy Awards have drawn leading names in a short time, such as Dell, Symantec, Cisco, and IBM. Beating off such stiff competition makes this recognition all the more impressive. Ralph and Maximilian were present at the ceremony in London on June 5 to collect the award and provided their first impressions – “We were surrounded by global experts for BYOX strategy and operations. Three world class experts on the jury reviewed dozens of award applications and told us they were so impressed by our strategy and could immediately see that we had fulfilled all the selection criteria for the award.”
This is a fantastic achievement for the Security and Risk team and the SAP Global IT organization as a whole, which continues to support the “Mobile” pillar of our corporate strategy.
Hope you enjoy it. See you next time!
