How we can help you reimagine everything, get the most out of your SAP® investments, and position your business for future digital demands

Your choice is an important one when it comes to SAP® solution providers who can help you get the most from your SAP investments—to help position your business for the evolving digital economy. And while the alliance between Deloitte and SAP has a long history and is widely recognised for excellence, there are many more reasons to choose to work with us.

So why Deloitte? There are several compelling reasons for choosing Deloitte to help you get the most out of your SAP investment—and to begin the critical digital transformation your organisation will require to meet tomorrow’s business needs.

Now is the time for action

Wait and you can miss opportunities. So what are you waiting for? Take incremental steps that can become a path to sustained transformation. In today's digital era, the windows of opportunity will be much smaller and often difficult to spot, with fewer big "make or break" moments. How can you achieve results? Start with a roadmap that includes frequent milestones, embedding digital execution into all business functions and markets, and embedding flexibility into operating models. Flexible business models create opportunities to serve customers better and adjust to ever-shifting market conditions.
SAP's modern platforms and architectures can be foundational for many organizations' ability to reimagine everything. Begin your journey by defining the needs and the expectations of your future customers. The choice for defining the pace of change and innovation is yours, but it can be challenging to decide where and how to begin.

Transform your ERP into a clean ERP

Years of customizing and incrementally enhancing the existing ERP often results in an architecture that is burdened with technical debt. Evidence of technical debt can be found in areas such as reports that are compiled but no longer used, transactions that are optimized for outdated business models, and infrastructure that is always scaled for performance exceptions that nobody recalls. Deloitte can help you design strategic operating models and create a clean ERP footprint. Contemporary solutions and architectures present opportunities to establish a reliable, efficient, and scalable core, with choices for whether, how and where to innovate via the cloud. For example, a clean ERP program can allow you to innovate as needed and then shed those innovations if they are no longer adding value.

Innovate on any core

Today, you don't have to wait years to realize the value of IT investments. Cloud-enabled capabilities can help you innovate on any core, yielding results sooner. You can achieve returns on your existing SAP® ECC even as you undertake a longer transformation journey with SAP S/4HANA®. For example, a Deloitte Reimagine Platform "Lights Out Finance" solution is designed to extend SAP ECC finance capabilities using SAP Leonardo machine learning capabilities to make the goods receipt/invoice receipt clearing more accurate, less manual, and faster. It's a solution that is available today and fully portable to SAP S/4HANA.

Move strategically from core to edge

Many organizations today innovate from the edge to the core. This approach can create "islands" of apps and data that are difficult to harmonize with the core. Innovating from the edge can lead to redundancy, complexity, more work, costs, and risks. What if your architecture pursued a design with consistent data and uniform processes? Deloitte can help you reimagine innovation from the core to the edge. We can help you find ways for edge apps to use core data in its native form so you can avoid replicating technology components unnecessarily. The goal: simplified IT, lower costs, and accelerated innovation. Using SAP's modern platforms, Deloitte can help you make it possible.

Grow with cloud

Cloud architectures are becoming foundational to applications and infrastructure offerings. SAP's cloud-centric SAP Intelligent Suite—including SAP S/4HANA Cloud, SAP C/4HANA, SAP® Ariba®, and SAP® SuccessFactors® offerings—deliver solutions while supporting innovation. Organizations face tough decisions on how to prioritize cloud investments, based on expected value. Deloitte has extensive experience implementing cloud solutions, giving our team critical insights for guiding clients through the nuances of moving confidently to the cloud. Our experience with SAP Cloud Platform helps us deliver agility for our clients while they position themselves for future needs. Whether it's purchasing licenses through Deloitte's certified SAP alliance, or leveraging Deloitte's cloud hosting experience, we work with clients to make solutions seamless.

Go deep with SAP S/4HANA and analytics

Deloitte's deep understanding of SAP S/4HANA in analytics is rooted in our co-innovation with SAP. We help clients achieve results based on clear business objectives, efficient architecture strategies, harmonized data models, and intuitive delivery channels. Our clients are then able to make better sense of big data, develop predictive analytics, and unlock strategic insights.

Build digital experiences for tomorrow

The user experience matters more than ever as the expectations of customers, third parties, employees, and other stakeholders continue to grow. At Deloitte, we combine deep know-how with digital resources—such as SAP® Customer Experience solutions, OpenText, and SAP Ariba—with an agency approach that can help extend the usability of solutions. The objective? Meaningful digital experiences that can strengthen relationships, increase efficiency, and drive growth.
