We love it when we’re able to give our customers and partners a shout out when their work receives formal recognition in the industry. That’s why today I wanted to put out this post to congratulate Roland Berger Strategy Consultants for winning one of this year’s Beacon Awards for IT business innovation.
Each year, only three to five businesses worldwide achieve this recognition, which surely makes it an honor for Roland Berger. The awards recognize enterprises that have made measurable progress toward becoming digital businesses by positively impacting the future of their company, their industry and their customer/partner ecosystems through the use of innovative technologies. Last year, Hilti Corp. was one of the winners for enabling subsidiaries to implement key business management and reporting capabilities.
With over 50 offices in 36 countries, Roland Berger has been experiencing significant growth in a spectrum of new and developing markets. They needed to move quickly into these new markets, set up consulting teams, and implement an application infrastructure in a short amount of time that would easily support management of the new business. In addition to needing an application that was easy to implement, learn, and use, they also had to reduce the risk of transitioning into new markets by minimizing up-front IT costs. The itelligence customer Roland Berger uses the SAP® Business ByDesign® solution, SAP’s cloud solution, to provide its 2,700 business consultants with quick and effective access to all the necessary management tools.
Roland Berger was able to do all of this by leveraging a modular, flexible and low-cost cloud-based business management solution, giving them a healthy competitive advantage when executing global projects and initiatives. With their processes in place, Roland Berger saw significant improvements and cost reductions with business process management, communications, sales as well as customer support.
It’s no wonder that Roland Berger is among the top consulting firms in Europe and one of the top ranked across the global strategy consulting market. We wish them well and are looking forward to our continued partnership. Please join me in congratulating them!
