Deloitte Announces Expanded Industry Cloud Innovation Portfolio, Integrating SAP Industry Cloud Into Broader Deloitte Innovation Ecosystem
AI-enabled kinetic microservices herald the next wave of intelligent solutions to come from the organization
NEW YORK, June 17, 2020—Deloitte today announced it was expanding its long-standing strategy to develop intelligent cloud-enabled apps and core extensions that leverage SAP technologies to accelerate digital business transformation and deliver industry-specific capabilities.
Deloitte’s elevated commitment to cloud innovation coincides with SAP’s announcement of the SAP Industry Cloud program—which will rely on SAP partners to develop, build and run “as a software service” solutions that solve dedicated business problems and leverage SAP Cloud Platform.
“We realize every industry is unique, requiring a range of focused applications designed to address specific needs. At Deloitte, we have been teaming with SAP for several years to deliver innovative, cloud-based offerings that are already aligned tightly with the new SAP Industry Cloud vision,” said Jan Waals, principal and global SAP chief commercial officer, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “We have applications that address industry-specific business challenges, such as AI-enabled risk sensing and/or cloud-enabled core business modernization. With kinetic microservices, we expand our innovation ecosystem to help clients with their journey toward becoming a Kinetic Enterprise™.”
Kinetic microservices leverage machine learning, robotic process automation, and cloud computing architecture to rapidly transform organizations and help them become “built to evolve.” Beyond the industry-specific cloud apps and core extensions, they also include several “digital enablement” capabilities to provide the foundation for data, integration, return on information and delivery transformation.
Redefining the foundation for business outcomes through innovation
“Kinetic microservices include digital enablement capabilities such as kinetic finance startup and selective transformation to help organizations agilely build the foundation they need to address the extraordinary pace of disruption we see today,” said Kelly Herod, principal and U.S. SAP offering leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “With these solutions, organizations can see their data more clearly, get more meaningful insights, streamline their business processes, and intelligently automate more aspects of their business. They really lay the foundation for broader adoption, innovation, and value from industry-specific cloud apps and core extensions.”
Deloitte’s expanded focus on developing intelligent cloud solutions for industry builds on the organization’s vision of the Kinetic Enterprise—an intelligent, cloud-enabled, “built to evolve” enterprise operating with a clean core and inclusive ecosystem of capabilities for responding at the pace of disruption.
“Deloitte has more than 60 ready-to-deploy assets enabled through the SAP Cloud Platform that organizations can use to accelerate transformation with industry-specific, business-function-specific capabilities,” said Darwin Deano, principal and global SAP CTO, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “In addition to providing ‘core-to-edge’ applications that combine core capabilities with edge innovation technology, we have invested to uphold the critical fundamentals as part of kinetic microservices.”
Deloitte, an SAP global services partner, helps clients activate the intelligent, cloud-enabled Kinetic Enterprise™ with SAP technologies—to help them reimagine everything, innovate rapidly, and evolve with confidence in the face of constant disruption. Each day across the globe, Deloitte’s team of more than 25,000 professionals is working with leaders across industries to explore the art of the possible with SAP solutions—and to take action. With an SAP relationship that dates to 1989, Deloitte has helped more than 3,500 clients efficiently enable SAP solutions and realize business value from those investments.
