Deloitte Ascend Launches at Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco

New platform helps organizations accelerate digital transformation beyond cloud migration to simplify and standardize core business processes with digital enablement.

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16, 2019 — Deloitte today announced the launch of Deloitte Ascend™ — a pre-configured digital accelerator built on the Oracle Cloud platform designed to drive business innovation, help improve performance and deliver enterprise digital transformation.

Deloitte Ascend is designed for clients migrating from on-premises applications to Oracle Cloud Applications and can be applied wherever they are on the digital maturity curve. Deloitte Ascend will help clients:

  • Simplify business processes by accelerating the delivery of the Clean Core enabled by Oracle Cloud.
  • Automate delivery activities such as data migration, configuration, testing and code migrations.
  • Standardize core business processes — across nearly 35 industries — while enhancing efficiencies with a library of digital-native processes and use cases enabled by Oracle Cloud and other digital technologies.

“In our globally connected world, it’s no longer enough for most organizations to simply migrate to a cloud platform,” said Mark Walsh, principal and U.S. enterprise performance portfolio leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “With Deloitte Ascend, we combine our industry-leading practices and digital insights across dozens of industries with deep, award-winning Oracle Cloud experience to help our clients deliver new and compelling levels of performance across their enterprise.”

At the core of Deloitte Ascend is a digital transformation framework and an enabling tool-set with an underlying analytics engine coupled with a library of project assets and digital enablers. The framework is designed to help organizations assess their current digital capabilities, map their digital journey, and ultimately build a platform to realize competitive advantage by harnessing the full breadth of the Oracle Cloud platform.

The Deloitte Ascend platform also enables a series of Oracle Digital Experience Labs. These interactive labs deliver an immersive experience in which Oracle Cloud and digital technologies are used to execute key business processes using real-life configuration and data. The labs are designed to bring clients’ digital ambitions to life by demonstrating how each process can be simplified and standardized with digital enablement.

“Deloitte has a proven track record of helping organizations across industries drive value using Oracle Cloud Applications,” said Dave Donatelli, executive vice president, Cloud Business Group, Oracle. “Deloitte Ascend will help both plan and power our customers’ digital transformation journey and enable them to take advantage of all that Oracle’s complete business cloud platform offers.”

Deloitte Ascend will be presented — in booth #901 — as part of Deloitte’s Global Sponsorship of Oracle OpenWorld, Sept. 16-19, 2019, in San Francisco. Deloitte is designated by Oracle as a Global Cloud Elite level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) and has held the highest level of alliance relationship with Oracle for more than two decades.
