Deloitte announced that they have an agreement with SAP to serve as a certified cloud-managed services provider of SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud in a hyper-scale computing environment.
Deloitte will provide a wide range of services to help clients deploy, run, and manage SAP solutions on hyper-scale cloud platforms.
“Many businesses that use SAP solutions are moving to the cloud, taking full advantage of the flexibility and scalability that it provides,” said Abdi Goodarzi, U.S. SAP practices leader and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP.
Goodarzi said, “Hyperscale cloud environments become especially attractive as data continues to grow, and as companies continue to rely on data to generate insights and improve the customer experience.”
“Deloitte’s cloud management framework, OpenCloud, can help by providing clients with a secure and integrated view of managed services across all hyper-scale platforms. The new agreement with SAP should make it even easier for organizations to simplify the cloud transformation journey and the move to SAP S/4HANA.”
Under the agreement, organizations using SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud can select Deloitte as their default provider of cloud-managed services in hyper-scale.
The agreement also paves the way for companies to explore new services and capabilities using an SAP solution.
The agreement is also crucial for enterprises that use SAP solutions in their move to the next generation SAP S/4HANA Cloud offering — through this customers are allowed to use SAP application software and support hyper-scale infrastructure, and cloud-managed services in a subscription model
“SAP S/4HANA can run in a private cloud environment on SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud,” said Schaffer Hilton, Global SAP lead client service partner, and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “As businesses move toward SAP S/4HANA, this new agreement between SAP and Deloitte will help ensure they have access to a rich ecosystem of services to support their cloud journeys.“
