SAP M&A Activity
M&A activity within the SAP partner ecosystem remains steady to strong. Key buyers have included such global systems integrators, consulting giants and MSPs (managed IT service providers) like Accenture, Capgemini, Deloitte, Dimension Data, HCL, IBM and NTT Communications.
The goal, in many cases, involves a regional or talent land grab — designed to help end customers accelerate migrations from on-premises applications to cloud-based SAP options across enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), HANA and more. More recently, SAP partner M&A deals have also focused on supply chain security and application security expertise.
