SAP Sustainability Consultants: Big Opportunity in 2023?

January 9, 2023 by Joe Panettieri

SAP partners will likely expand into sustainability consulting services in 2023, according to Ignite SAP -- a talent recruiting firm.

The overall SAP partner ecosystem spans includes ISVs (independent software vendors), consulting firms, global systems integrators (GSIs) and managed IT service providers (MSPs) that help customers to deploy and run SAP's enterprise business software and SaaS applications.
