Illumiti announced yesterday it has been named the 2011 SAP® Business All-in-One Partner of the Year, Canada. Awards were presented by SAP Americas (NYSE: SAP) during the SAP® North America Field Kick-Off Meeting (FKOM) 2012, held Jan. 17-19 in New Orleans, La., to the top-performing SAP channel partners and SAP services partners in North America for outstanding contributions that impact overall SAP sales and pipeline-generation goals.
Nir Orbach, founder and CEO, Illumiti, said, “We are thrilled to be recognized by SAP as its top partner for SAP Business All-in-One in Canada for the second year in a row. This award is a testament to the professionalism and hard work demonstrated by our entire team in delivering highly effective solutions to our clients’ business challenges in partnership with SAP.”
Selected from SAP’s wide-ranging North American partner base, nominations for the SAP Partner Impact awards were based on internal SAP sales data. A steering committee composed of regional and global SAP representatives determined winning partners in each category according to numerous criteria such as sales achievement and performance. As the recipient of a 2012 Partner Impact award, Illumiti has been honored as SAP’s top channel partner for the SAP Business All-in-One solution in Canada. Winners will receive strong recognition from the SAP field for their accomplishments.
Illumiti received the award during the SAP North America FKOM 2012, an annual gathering of SAP executives, SAP field employees and partners to learn about SAP’s strategy, sales methodology, best practices, business growth opportunities and product innovations. The theme of this year’s meeting, “Run Better Win Bigger,” prominently featured SAP’s innovation story focusing on its core pillars – analytics, cloud, mobility and in-memory computing – as well as solutions for industries and lines of business on a consistent core. A focus of the event was on helping SAP’s strong partner ecosystem succeed in 2012 by providing visibility into SAP’s company direction, education on products, networking opportunities, and exposure to SAP leaders. SAP and its partners help customers adopt innovation easily, gain results rapidly, grow sustainably and ultimately run better with SAP solutions. This year’s North America FKOM hosted more than 4,000 attendees from the U.S. and Canada.
“Our partners’ regional, industry and solution expertise play a crucial role in driving game-changing co-innovation and expanding our market reach and customer touch points,” said John Graham, head of Volume Markets and Ecosystem & Channels, SAP America, Inc. “As a recipient of a 2012 SAP Partner Impact award, we recognize Illumiti’s commitment and efforts in developing and growing its partnership with SAP and driving customer success.”
