Deloitte Receives 2017 SAP® Pinnacle Award: SAP S/4HANA® Partner of the Year–Large Enterprise Companies
NEW YORK, May 4, 2017—Deloitte today announced that it has received a 2017 SAP® Pinnacle Award as the SAP S/4HANA® Partner of the Year–Large Enterprise Companies, which recognizes its outstanding contributions working with SAP. SAP presents these awards annually to the top organizations that have excelled in developing and growing their relationship with SAP and helping customers run better. Winners and finalists in 19 categories were chosen based on recommendations from the SAP field, customer feedback and performance indicators, including a Customers’ Choice award, which recognizes a customer-nominated SAP partner.
“Large enterprises are doing big things to get big value with SAP S/4HANA, the next-generation ERP business suite. We’re excited to be recognized for our work helping those organizations develop game-changing digital capabilities to meet tomorrow’s challenges,” said Jan Waals, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and global SAP practice lead. “In collaborating with SAP to deliver SAP S/4HANA-driven capabilities, we’re helping some of the world’s leading companies take customer engagement to the next level, transform the supply chain, execute results-driven Internet of Things strategies, and more.”
SAP and Deloitte have a relationship that dates back decades, with the two organizations collaborating extensively to bring forward innovative solutions that can help businesses run simple. Deloitte also counts itself among SAP’s client base —having recently deployed the latest version of SAP S/4HANA, release 1610, to support its own operations.
“As a large organization ourselves, we have put our money where our mouth is when it comes to SAP S/4HANA — to help large enterprise clients better understand its potential and to get the kind of value our own organization requires to compete in the evolving digital economy,” added Waals. “With SAP S/4HANA 1610, we’re already realizing new efficiencies, new insights and new opportunities for growth.”
Deloitte’s 2017 SAP Pinnacle Award as the SAP S/4HANA Partner of the Year – Large Enterprise Companies represents the second year in a row that the organization has earned an SAP Pinnacle Award for its strength in SAP S/4HANA. Deloitte also received a 2016 SAP Pinnacle Award as SAP S/4HANA Adoption Partner of the Year.
“SAP is proudly committed to our ever-open, expanding partner ecosystem,” said Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP. “No company can or should go it alone in this digital economy. SAP’s partners bring domain expertise, global scale and a shared commitment to our customers. The SAP Pinnacle Awards give us the chance to salute the best of the best.”
SAP Pinnacle Awards shine a spotlight on SAP’s partners’ remarkable contributions, acknowledging their dedication to teamwork, innovative approach and capacity to challenge what is possible to help customers achieve their goals. Award winners will be formally recognized at the SAP Global Partner Summit in Orlando, Florida, May 15. The SAP Global Partner Summit is held in conjunction with SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference, the largest global business technology event, hosted by SAP and ASUG May 16–18.
