Dear Readers,

Welcome to the fifth successive edition of the SAP ACE Awards. This year, ACE broke all previous records—with as many as 300 nominations in 21 categories—and this would not have been possible without your enthusiastic support.

You will be pleased to know that SAP ACE continues to set new benchmarks in customer excellence and inspire so many organizations to use technology for running their business in the best way possible.

And just as the business technology landscape is changing, so is SAP ACE to attune itself to those changes. To reflect the two major industry trends of mobility and the cloud, we introduced two new award categories this year: Best Adoption of Enterprise Mobility Solutions and Best Cloud Based ERP Solution Implementation.

Your invaluable feedback on the awards process last year also enabled us to introduce this time a simple three-step process for evaluating and screening nominations: One, an online form for selfnomination; Two, metrics-based assessment and shortlisting; and Three, the final decision by an eminent, independent jury.

What has not changed, however, is our commitment to bring you the best through this wonderful platform—SAP ACE. My heartiest congratulations to all the winners and best wishes to all the aspirants!

I invite you all to meet these great achievers in this commemorative book you hold in your hands and learn their little secrets. After all, success shared is success multiplied.

Warm regards,

Peter Gartenberg
