Strategy & Transformation

In today’s market conditions, there’s a lot of opportunity to help clients improve the way they work, make efficiencies and predict their future performance. This is why we’re investing heavily in Business Analytics. Our expertise helps clients see patterns in vast amounts of data, and make intelligent, fact-based business decisions. We have five areas of focus here that you can be part of: Strategy, Business Intelligence and Performance Management; Advanced Analytics and Optimisation; Enterprise Information Management; and Enterprise Content Management.

And you’ll be part of a team that’s won many awards for its work (in fact, we were named SAP Partner of the Year in 2009).
