A consultancy with decades of experience in mobility and an history with SAP, Capgemini has won SAP Pinnacle Awards the past two years in a row and supports 2,500 SAP customers globally.  The new deal between the two companies was brokered to develop a structured go-to-market model that will have their sales team cooperate more fully when servicing customers.

According to one executive from The Coca Cola Refreshments Company, the announcement makes sense given Capgemini's involvement in designing and implementing the next generation of SAP workflows at his company and other similar enterprises.

"Standardizing on mobile platforms that support multiple mobile operating systems and bring fast ROI and low total cost of ownership is key to the success of our mobile strategy," says Dirk Du Toit, group director of architecture and enabling technologies for Coca Cola.
