Deloitte Canada acquires Clockwork Inc. to bolster its SAP consultancy business in Canada
Toronto, August 3, 2021 – Deloitte Canada is acquiring leading SAP consultancy, Clockwork Inc. (“Clockwork”) to bolster its market leading capabilities across SaaS solution deployment, cloud migration, and custom application development. Recognized as a market leader in SAP, Clockwork’s deep technical capabilities and strong reputation will enable digital transformation for our clients.
Founded in 1998, Clockwork is one of the leading independent Canadian SAP companies, with clients across a range of industries including financial services, consumer, and public sector. Clockwork also brings to the firm key relationships beyond SAP, with cloud providers Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
“It should come as no surprise that we’re excited to have the Clockwork team join Deloitte,” said Anthony Viel, CEO, Deloitte Canada. “Apart from expanding our presence as a leading Canadian SAP consultancy, Clockwork’s recognized brand and experienced leaders are an especially important aspect of this move, one that is sure to strengthen our SAP technical skills, assets, and market leadership in the space.”
Bringing to the firm its technical capabilities, seasoned leaders, and critical capacity across SAP and Cloud, the addition of Clockwork will build on Deloitte’s capacity to deliver end-to-end SAP and Cloud transformation projects across a variety of industries and private and public clients.
With 45 employees joining Deloitte Canada in Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary, Clockwork will integrate into Deloitte’s Consulting practice, under the SAP Enterprise Solutions offering. Also joining the firm as a new partner is former co-founder and president at Clockwork, Mike Roach.
“We’re no strangers to Deloitte, and while we’ve formed a solid working relationship in the past, it’s another thing entirely to be teaming up under one name,” said Mike Roach, Consulting partner, Deloitte Canada, and former co-founder and president at Clockwork. “By gaining access to a plethora of Deloitte resources and relationships, we hope to achieve even more for our clients and can’t wait to tackle new challenges together.”
