South Harwich, MA – March 5, 2014
Continuing to strengthen its market position as the worldwide leader in information governance and data migration solutions, BackOffice Associates announced today its significant achievements for 2013 and outlook for 2014. Marked by several new product and business unit offerings including the Data Stewardship Platform (DSP) and Application Suite and the introduction of the Human Capital Management Business Unit, 2013 was a banner year for the data management provider. Closing out the year and expanding its SAP data services expertise globally, BackOffice Associates also acquired ENTOTA, a European data migration leader and largest SAP® Data Services consultancy in EMEA.
The BackOffice DSP and Application Suite, which was released for general availability in July 2013, is the next generation of BackOffice’s services and solutions, delivering a modern approach for helping data stewards manage their mission-critical information throughout enterprise data quality, governance and migration projects. Engineered from the ground up, the solution is also enabled by embedded SAP Data Services software to support seamless integration and interoperability with SAP functions.
“2013 was an incredibly busy and exciting year for BackOffice as we continued to expand our services globally and innovate our breadth of offerings,” said David Booth, president and CEO of BackOffice Associates. “The demand for our market-leading data quality solutions continues to increase as organizations look to better leverage data to improve operational efficiency across the organization and accelerate growth.”
Adding to BackOffice Associates’ depth of expertise, one of its core strengths, the company’s consulting staff grew nearly 30 percent over a three-year period, which further demonstrates market interest for expert data quality services. BackOffice also achieved an impressive 115 percent increase in new customer contracts from 2012 to 2013.
Rounding out the achievements, BackOffice Associates was honored with the SAP 2013 Public Delivery Partner of the Year Award. The award is given to those who make outstanding contributions that impact overall SAP sales and pipeline-generation goals.
Looking to the year ahead, Booth added, “We’ve already begun the year with a bang with the SAP global reseller agreement. The team will continue to push global and collective product/service innovation boundaries for the ultimate benefit of our satisfied customers.”
