A new study conducted by COMPUTERWOCHE and the Institute for Management and Economic Research examined the reputation of 100 companies providing SAP services. On the basis of posts on news sites, forums, blogs, etc., the study looked at how the services and products of the companies were rated. In this study, the digital agency dotSource made it into the top 5 of the best SAP consultants in Germany.
Accelerated by the events of the last few months, many companies are repositioning themselves, moving to digital channels or working on upgrading their software. Step by step, old on-premise SAP solutions, for example, are being replaced with the new C/4HANA product generation. The digital transformation of processes and business models presents companies with major challenges, which is why they look at reputation when searching for a suitable SAP consultant and expect more than just technical and software know-how.
In order not to lose track of the large number of candidates, analyses, rankings and awards such as the aforementioned study are helpful. In total, one hundred companies were examined and evaluated as part of the »IT Champions: SAP Consultants« study. The digital agency dotSource made it to fourth place and is therefore one of the top 5 SAP consultants in Germany.
Placing among the Top 5 SAP Consultants in Germany with 90.4 Points
For the ranking, analysts at the Institute for Management and Economic Research collected almost 220,000 mentions from a variety of online sources (e.g. news sites, forums, blogs, etc.) between October 2019 and September 2020 and analysed them using neural networks and other AI methods. The decisive factors were, for example, how an SAP consultant is rated as an employer, the skills and innovation performance of the management and how products and services are rated. The result was a sentiment analysis that classifies all statements on the Internet about the respective company into the following categories: »Positive«, »Neutral« or »Negative«. This data set was then converted to a point value, with the company with a maximum score of 100 points representing the benchmark and comparative value for all other companies. Companies that scored at least 60 points in the overall ranking received a seal of quality. With a score of 90.4 points, dotSource is among the top 5 SAP consultants in Germany and thus beats globally operating companies with several hundred employees and international branches.
