Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the SAP partner ecosystem has remained relatively steady over the past three years or so. 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 ERP (enterprise resource planning), CRM (customer relationship management), HANA and more. More recently, SAP partner M&A deals have also focused on supply chain security and application security expertise.

    Do you also track the sell side bankers who represented each of these SAP deals?

    Joe Panettieri:

    Hi Steven: Thanks for your note. We haven’t created a dedicated list of bankers involved in each SAP partner deal. But some of our individual stories mentions those parties. Based on your comment (and similar emails I’ve received), we’ll strive to include that information in all of our M&A coverage going forward.
