Strategy through execution.
As with all our technology alliances, our job is to determine the right business strategy for you, then ensure you have the best and most relevant technology to achieve it. In other words, it’s about technology as an enabler, and a means to deliver a successful strategy. In developing that strategy, we bring all our expertise to bear, from market and industry insight to professional know-how in areas - digital, customer strategy, operations, finance, tax, and HR. And once the right technology is identified, we help you get the most from your investment and implement it, so your business is leaner, smarter, and more agile, and you get the benefits faster.
SAP are about building great technology, we’re about using it in the way that best benefits you, our client. Sometimes we introduce SAP to our clients; on other occasions it works the other way; and sometimes we go to market together. Our know-how means we can give you a wider perspective, as well as specific support in using SAP software - for example, when a new release comes out we’re often asked what its impact will be.
Our own SAP consultants get the benefit of access to the latest new products, and training from the people who developed them. We also get direct access to SAP’s experts, so that the project risk of the implementation phase is reduced and the process speeds up.
We’re investing locally, regionally and globally in our relationship with SAP, and developing new products, services and client relationships together.
"A good example of this is SAP S/4HANA - SAP’s next generation ERP Financials product which is powered by SAP HANA, an in memory database management system developed to support both transactional and EPM applications and enterprise wide data storage solutions. One of the benefits that S/4HANA offers is real time performance reporting for CFOs and true integration with the SAP transaction system. We have been working very closely with SAP S/4HANA product specialists to understand the solution, the business benefits and migration path and are now developing differentiating tools and offerings to help clients get maximum value from their investment in this technology. In a number of countries we are already helping clients develop their business cases for adopting this technology and shaping the client’s finance function of the future leveraging this new technology."
