SAP and Accenture have teamed up in the core and industry development and go-to-market of SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA).
This collaboration intends to accelerate development of SAP S/4HANA as well as industry and line-of-business solutions, with a view to simplifying and fast-tracking customers’ journeys to digital businesses.
“Our teams in Germany and Shanghai are helping SAP with the design and build of the SAP S/4HANA Finance solution,” said Paul Daugherty, CTO of Accenture. “In addition, we plan to involve clients as part of a broader co-innovation strategy to ensure that we are optimising our development efforts for SAP S4/HANA to meet their needs and help them stay competitive across industries and markets.”
In addition to co-development activities, a go-to-market approach will build on joint value-proposition capabilities and collaborative delivery efforts between SAP and Accenture. The result would be differentiated solutions with flexible delivery options for bundled industry cloud deployment.
The companies will co-invest in resources and appoint dedicated executives to bring maximum value to mutual clients. The planned key benefits include enriching solutions by combining SAP and Accenture’s expertise, and shortening time to market by leveraging Accenture delivery expertise for core and industry cloud solutions development for SAP S/4HANA.
There are also new apps for SAP S/4HANA Finance using the SAP Fiori user experience to bring an enhanced and simplified user experience and increased productivity across finance functions
Another benefit is the acceleration of adoption of SAP S/4HANA and shortening clients’ time to digital value by aligning and scaling joint go-to-market efforts.
