PARIS -- May 07, 2013
In recognition of its strong partnership with SAP (NYSE: SAP), Capgemini today
announced it has received a 2013 SAP® Pinnacle award in the category Mobile
Co-Innovation Partner of the Year. SAP Pinnacle awards are presented annually
to the top SAP partners that have excelled in developing and growing their
partnership with SAP and driving customer success. Finalists and winners in 19
categories were based on field recommendations, customer feedback and
performance indicators in the following four categories: co-innovation, market
expansion, service delivery and sustainability.
Receiving the 2013 SAP Pinnacle award as the Mobile Co-Innovation Partner of
the Year is the result of over 18 months of close collaboration and

includes co-development efforts on cutting edge direct store delivery and
mobile sales execution solutions, the engagement of Capgemini as a global
provider of managed mobility services, and cooperation on the extended
portfolio of industry-specific mobile apps built on the SAP Mobile Platform.
Joint customer wins over the period have also demonstrated the strength of the
collaboration with SAP. This award builds on Capgemini’s previous receipt of a
2012 Pinnacle award in the category Transformational Award: Unwired
