Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) April 7, 2010
Panaya, the leading SaaS supplier of SAP upgrade automation, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in the SAP Ecosystem, 2010” report by Thomas Otter, Christian Hestermann, Cameron Haight, Derek Prior, and Thomas E. Murphy.
The report, published on March 31, 2010, recommends to “Expand your search beyond SAP's toolset and the large system integrators (SIs) when looking for tools to reduce your SAP life cycle support costs” and “Look to SaaS and virtualization to lower the costs of testing, upgrading, enhancement packs and support pack installations.”
“Many ERP users are struggling to choose between staying on an older release and paying increased support costs or going through a costly and risky upgrade project,” said Amit Bendov, Panaya’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Panaya changes the rules by making SAP upgrades safer and more affordable. We consider our inclusion in the report by Gartner confirmation of our mission to reduce the costs of running SAP applications.”
