FAQs

What is SAP ACE?

SAP ACE is a customer awards process that recognizes & rewards SAP customers who have implemented and leveraged SAP solutions really well. SAP ACE is a hallmark of recognition from SAP India and is today considered by many as one of the top IT awards in India.

Why should I consider SAP ACE?

One of the reasons for SAP ACE being recognized as a prestigious award is the attention & rigor that goes into the evaluation process. This requires specific information from each nominee and uses a multi-stage evaluation process. Whilst we do understand that the process will take time, the value of recognition from SAP and the learnings you could get from the evaluation process would undoubtedly be useful for your entire organization.

Naturally, the final decision is yours. But we urge you to be a part of SAP ACE—sooner than later.

SAP ACE is now in its 16th year and has evolved to become stronger & stronger. The extent of customer involvement and the fact that more than a dozen different expert panels so far have accepted the evaluation process is itself proof of its robustness.

We are proud of SAP ACE being a strong & fair evaluation. And over 1700 projects evaluated so far, is testimony to the SAP ACE values.
