Abaco Consulting joins the valantic Group, one of
the fastest growing German companies
in digital consultancy

The merger will allow Abaco Consulting to increase its team in Portugal and provide services to SAP customers in the European market.

Abaco Consulting, a reference company in the implementation and maintenance of SAP information systems, joins the valantic group, a German reference group in digital consultancy and software, in order to boost its growth and reinforce the strong position it holds in the market, as well as to continuously develop its competencies as partners on the path of digital transformation.

Knowing that the consulting market for SAP-based business transformation is characterised by an extremely high demand that will increase in the coming years and in order to meet all the needs of its customers and achieve its own growth ambitions, Abaco Consulting is now joining forces with valantic.

Currently, the two Organisations will continue to operate independently, with Abaco’s Management remaining the same and beginning to work towards the integration of the commercial offer areas, maintaining all partnerships and projects going on as usual.

Abaco Consulting is a national reference in SAP management software consultancy, with a vast team of professionals (around 150 collaborators) focused on this technology and on the advantages that it has to offer all types of organisations: public or private. Its business is focused on two key areas: implementation and maintenance of SAP information systems (world leader in management software).

valantic is one of the fastest growing digital solutions, consulting and software companies in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), has more than 2,000 specialists and offers a comprehensive solutions portfolio from the area of digital transformation, to SAP consulting and strategic consulting, to customer experience and process digitisation. It counts 28 out of 40 DAX companies among its clients and given its corporate structure, valantic offers the advantages of a large international company combined with the agility and customer focus of a medium-sized company.

This way, Abaco Consulting will reinforce its competence in the main focus areas, will expand this same offer with valantic’s competence areas and will extend its international presence to markets where valantic Group is strongly established.

“This operation presupposes a growth in business volume, qualified technological talent and the portfolio of products and services, which will allow the two companies to obtain greater international recognition and projection, thus taking on larger projects and with various areas of expertise.  We are convinced that this step will strengthen our performance by maintaining a continuous and productive cooperation with our business partners”, says João Moreira, CEO of Abaco Consulting.

“We are very happy about this union with Abaco Consulting – a new highly competent partner in the SAP environment that matches our own level of quality and expertise and will certainly strengthen us in future projects. I firmly believe that our large and medium-sized regional and multinational customers will only benefit from this merger with Abaco,” explains valantic CEO and Partner Dr. Holger von Daniels.

Karsten Ötschmann, Partner and Managing Director at valantic, responsible for the strategic development of the SAP Services division within the company, adds, “I am very pleased that with the addition of Abaco and their excellent management team and employees, we are taking a significant step in our European expansion. It allows us to reinforce the largest SAP-based business transformation projects with international teams of good professionals. For valantic employees, this merger also offers the great opportunity to complete their professional training at both SAP Academy locations, both in Germany and Portugal.”
