Satyam Computer Services Ltd. (NYSE:SAY), a leading business and information technology services provider, today announced that Forrester Research has named the company among the world’s leaders in Oracle implementation capabilities. “The Forrester Wave™: Oracle Implementation Providers, Q1, 2008 (March 2008)” places Satyam among the leaders of “an extremely well-qualified pack.”
The report is especially relevant because demand for Oracle services is growing all over the world, as organizations continue to leverage the ERP providers expanding portfolio of offerings. In addition, as Oracle’s ecosystem is continuously expanding, many existing customers also need associated services.
“We are pleased to be recognized as a leader by Forrester Research,” said Sriram Papani, Senior Vice President and Head of Satyam’s Oracle Practice. “We are proud of our 5,800 Oracle professionals and their exceptional expertise, as well as their ability to lead Satyam customers in numerous industries. Our exceptional team and the success it has enjoyed recently are the results of proactive investments to build solution assets and execution skills.”
The report is the result of information Forrester gleaned by researching 13 of the world’s leading Oracle implementation organizations—via provider surveys, executive strategy briefings, and client reference calls—on 107 criteria. These, in turn, were grouped into three “high-level buckets”: current offering, strategy, and market presence.
The report stated that Satyam (and one other vendor) has “extremely strong technical ability and growing strategy consulting practices.” As such, Indian-based providers are “better able to provide full, end-to-end service delivery, rather than come in for only the back end of an implementation.”
The report also noted Satyam’s broad industry reach, and said that the company’s Oracle professionals are “aligned across verticals like airlines, financial services, higher education, life sciences, retail, telecom, and utilities.” Moreover, the report mentioned Satyam’s efforts to “reduce costs and speed time-to-market for its clients across a wide range of Oracle products.”
The report is available from Forrester Research website.
