SAP Australia and New Zealand announced today the winners of the SAP 2012 Partner Awards, with Soltius New Zealand receiving the award for Best SAP RDS Partner.

The annual awards recognise the top SAP partners that have excelled in delivering innovative technology, increased sales, quality services and add-on solutions to best meet SAP’s customer’s strategic business needs.

“SAP’s vision is making every customer a best run business – a goal which can only be reached though collaboration and co-innovation with our rich partner ecosystem,” said Andrew Barkla, SAP President and CEO SAP Australia and New Zealand.

“Partners are a vital part of developing, (re)selling, and implementing along our five markets (applications, cloud, mobile, analytics, technology & database) and it is my pleasure to recognise their contributions to the success of our customer,” Barkla added.

A total of 34 partners from across the Australia New Zealand region were nominated, with Soltius one of only nine partners – and the only New Zealand-based partner – to receive an award.

Soltius recently had its RDS solution for Mobile BI certified by SAP and is currently evaluating New Zealand’s market requirements for the development of more Rapid Deployment Solutions.
