Product lifecycle management plus ERP

Rapid integration for Siemens Teamcenter PLM solutions and SAP S/4HANA®

Transform your business with an end-to-end digital thread that enables digital product development, manufacturing, commercialization and service by fully integrating your ERP and PLM processes. Deloitte can help you get maximum value from your investments in technology—with a preconfigured solution that allows you to accelerate innovation, boost productivity, increase flexibility, optimize design transfer, and enable effective product sustainment and change control cycles.

Product lifecycle management (PLM) systems and ERP systems often operate in their own silos—leading to tedious manual processes, a lack of cost transparency, budgeting challenges, and a slower pace of innovation. A lack of integration between PLM and ERP systems can also compound compliance challenges and risk.

SAP and Siemens are looking to break down the silos and bring ERP and PLM closer together—especially when it comes to the value of Siemens solutions, including Teamcenter®, working in unison with SAP solutions, including S/4HANA®. The two companies have teamed up to more closely integrate their technologies and deliver integrated and enhanced solutions for PLM, supply chain, service, and asset management.

Teaming up for value
Deloitte can help you tap in to new value at the intersection of SAP ERP and Siemens PLM technologies. For more than two decades, Deloitte has been working with clients across industries to deploy SAP and Siemens solutions in harmony—allowing us to develop preconfigured solutions for integrating Siemens Teamcenter with the SAP S/4HANA digital core ERP and other SAP technologies.

By working with Deloitte to leverage these preconfigured solutions, you can quickly build an integrated PLM-ERP environment for boosting process efficiency and productivity, helping your organization operate as a more intelligent and responsive Kinetic Enterprise—built to evolve at the speed of change.

Global services. Our corps of 25,000 SAP specialists spans across the world, with many of them working daily at the intersection SAP and Siemens technologies. These professionals are providing a range of services across the “advise, implement, operate” spectrum—from business consulting to technology integration to documentation and training to managed services to change management.
