The Peningo SAP Consultants Blog

Welcome to the Peningo SAP Consultants Blog.  This Blog is intended to support the issues that affect the SAP Consulting market, as well as, follow SAP product related news and issues.

Peningo Systems has identified that the SAP technical services industry is moving in a direction that we at Peningo do not want to follow.  Our reasons for rejecting such a direction are:

Suppliers of SAP IT services have been organized into Networks of organizations or Cartels, with the purpose to control and enforce a reduction in the rates of individual consultants.  On the one side the Networks hopes to control demand and through the Networks force the rate reduction that will allow them a larger Margin.

The "End Client" recipient of the SAP Consulting Services continues to pay an ever increasing rate for such services, while the quality of the Consultants being delivered to them, declines; as the more “experienced SAP Consultants” refuse to participate in such equalitarian scheme.

Over the years, we at Peningo Systems have seen that the rates for the SAP Consultants have been reduced or become stagnant. As the Networks of these “Prestigious” SAP Consulting Service providers have increased needs to provide SAP Services, they seek "offshore" resources or lower paid H1-B / L-1 based resources to maintain their margins.  The more “Experienced Consultants” are not part of the equation, since their rate requirements would not fit into the “Prestigious” SAP Consulting Service provider’s lofty profit margin.  These "offshore and H1-B / L-1 resources" generally are not in tune with the needs of the American Business Community.

We invite your efforts to participate as a Commenter on this Blog in order to bring to the attention of the "End Client" the benefits of contracting direct, which will result in increase rate for the Consultant and lower billing rate to the "End Client”.

Peningo Systems supports and provides Consultants with expertise in many areas including:
