Heidelberg, June [xy] 2013 – DataVard GmbH, a specialized provider of SAP Data Management solutions, today announced that it has been included in Gartner’s list of “Cool Vendors in the SAP Ecosystem, 2013″.

Gartner, the leading information technology analyst firm, publishes annually a series of Cool Vendors reports announcing vendors that have caught Gartner’s interest over the past year because they offer innovative and intriguing technologies or solutions in their portfolio.

This year’s report offers detailed analysis of five “Cool Vendors” with innovative solutions that tackle recurring SAP customer challenges such as user interface, human resources payroll, mobile applications, hosting effectiveness and the diagnosis of SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP BW) technical problems.

“We are truly honored to be part of Gartner’s Cool Vendors in SAP Ecosystem, 2013 report”, said Gregor Stoeckler, CEO of DataVard. “We consider our inclusion as a confirmation of our mission to improve the effectiveness of our customer’s existing IT landscape and continuously ease the operation.”
