adesso: Full SAP power - provided by adesso in Switzerland now

The consulting and IT service provider adesso has long been one of the leading SAP specialists in Germany. Now the range of services is also being expanded more vigorously in Switzerland. With new strategic focus and development of the SAP division, in the future adesso will support customers locally in Switzerland with a comprehensive SAP portfolio.

adesso and SAP have maintained an intensive and fruitful partnership for almost 20 years. Numerous successfully implemented projects, tailor-made solutions for companies in all industries, and satisfied customers - these factors led to adesso being recognised as a SAP Gold Partner in its home market of Germany in July 2018. With the award of Gold Partner status, SAP honours adesso's comprehensive technology and consulting competencies for the realisation of SAP solutions. The Gold Partner status is awarded on the basis of strict test criteria for service, quality and expertise.

adesso Schweiz is now also deepening its SAP competence to be able to cover the high demand of Swiss customers for SAP consulting services. With Stefan Rühl, an IT professional with more than 20 years of SAP experience, adesso has succeeded in securing a Head of SAP with optimal qualifications. Stefan Rühl has spent the last nine years at SAP (Switzerland) in various sales and management roles in the service and consulting sectors. Previously he managed large SAP implementation projects for Swiss customers as a consultant and project manager and was, among other positions, head of the global SAP Centre of Excellence at a major bank. In his new role, he brings both consulting expertise and the perspective of SAP customers and users.

The SAP consulting market is currently growing disproportionately as SAP customers are increasingly forced to implement the new S/4 HANA ERP version while simultaneously more SAP solutions are only available in the cloud. Both trends are also creating a great demand for experienced consultants here in Switzerland. adesso can rely on a large SAP powerhouse as a delivery unit in Germany, which is prepared for international expansion. With the foundation of the subsidiary adesso orange a full year ago, adesso bundled the SAP expertise within the group of companies and created one of the leading SAP specialists in Germany.

When asked about the added value offered by adesso and its implementation method, the new Head of SAP at adesso Schweiz, Rühl, answers: "Particularly for S/4 HANA projects, the 'adesso active transformation' implementation method is well proven. It offers customers a common thread and sets guidelines for comprehensive and complex projects which are increasingly not just about a new IT solution, but the realignment of business processes with the aim of becoming more efficient and using innovations such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. To achieve this, representatives from many functional areas need to be at the table. adesso active transformation shows which steps need to be taken in which order by which participants so that the end result is an integrated solution that meets everyone's requirements."

adesso is also active in the job market, and is recruiting additional key SAP positions for Switzerland. Likewise, adesso will now actively network in the Swiss SAP ecosystem and enter into specific strategic cooperations with partners.

Hansjörg Süess, CEO and Delegate of Board of Members of adesso Schweiz AG, expects a growth spurt with the establishment of the new SAP Competence Center: "SAP is an area with enormous potential - especially in Switzerland. There is hardly any other country where the density of SAP users is as high as here. And so we meet the demand for SAP consulting and implementation support of our customers, who expect the entire range of IT services from us. The fact that we can now offer this expertise locally from our own ranks as adesso Schweiz is a huge added value for customers and opens many doors for us with both new and existing customers."
