CSC Positioned in ‘Leaders’ Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for SAP Outsourcing
News Release -- December 02, 2009
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Dec. 2 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has been positioned in the "leaders" quadrant of the Gartner 2009 report, Magic Quadrant for SAP Outsourcing, North America.1 The report analyzes 20 leading providers of SAP application outsourcing services.
According to Gartner, "As economic conditions have worsened in the last 18 months, ERP applications such as SAP have increasingly come under the financial microscope; one of the considerations that IT and financial management are focused on is outsourcing. This Magic Quadrant provides analysis of vendors capable of providing outsourced management of SAP applications. More enterprises are outsourcing elements of, or all the management burden of, their ERP applications to outsourcing vendors. Considering the substantial costs involved in using and managing ERP, this is unsurprising given current economic conditions."
The report was authored by Ben Pring, and covers providers of SAP application outsourcing services in North America.
"I believe our position in the Leaders Quadrant reinforces our focus on bringing innovative services to our current and future SAP customers," said Rick Wilcox, vice president of GPE Applications for CSC's Managed Services Sector (MSS). "SAP offerings are a key component of our enterprise application portfolio strategy. We intend to strengthen our position in the market by bringing new levels of industrialization, industry specialization and On-Demand services to our customers."
