NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte today announced plans to collaborate with Google Cloud and SAP to help customers devise a comprehensive cloud strategy, migrate their SAP applications to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and manage their entire cloud environment.
Together, Deloitte, Google Cloud and SAP will offer customers a triple play of value--providing SAP customers with all the capabilities required to digitally transform critical business processes and applications, while modernizing core infrastructure and managing hyperscale cloud operations.
GCP is certified to run SAP workloads (including SAP S/4HANA, SAP BW/4HANA, SAP Business Suite, SAP Business Warehouse and other apps such as SAP Hybris, SAP Business One, SAP Solution Manager and SAP Business Objects BI Suite) as a secure and reliable hosting environment, and the two integrate easily and effectively while offering customers access to Google Cloud's flexible, secure infrastructure and networking, analytics and machine learning capabilities.
Deloitte will also offer a full suite of solutions for running SAP applications on GCP. The inaugural offerings include the Deloitte Invoice Management Solution, which will automate invoice processing in the SAP system landscape, and the Deloitte Visual Inspection Solution, which will automate the visual inspection process and accelerate inventory restocking.
"With over 18,000 SAP practitioners in over 135 countries, Deloitte's worldwide SAP practice has the talent, resources and experience to lead in the marketplace," said Jan Waals, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and Global SAP practice leader. "Coupled with Deloitte being a Google Cloud Services Premier Partner and Technology Partner, our firm is at the forefront of this game-changing technology."
"Deloitte and SAP are valuable advisors to the world's top brands, and we are looking forward to collectively helping customers in their journey to the cloud," said Kevin Ichhpurani, corporate vice president, Business Development and Strategic Partnerships, Google Cloud. "This collaboration allows us to bring our collective expertise to customers across industries, accelerating innovation and delivering real business value."
