According to Hillard, potential benefits include accelerated digital core transformations through SAP S/4HANA and SAP BW/4HANA, leveraging AWS’s global scale and advanced capabilities and services, such as memory-optimised X1 instances.
In addition, the practice will bid to gain an insight-driven advantage through use of industry-specific and pre-configured analytical solutions built by Deloitte and powered by SAP HANA and AWS.
Furthermore, benefits are expected through migrating enterprise applications and their data to a scalable and cost-effective AWS environment, removing the need to own and manage the underlying technology infrastructure.
“Business leaders the world over trust Deloitte to help them implement the right technology strategy to achieve their goals,” AWS Vice President of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Terry Wise, added.
“Deloitte’s deep experience and services, SAP’s powerful data management solutions, and the scale and flexibility of the AWS Cloud will be an invaluable combination for enterprises looking to become more agile, create new efficiencies and grow their businesses.”
For SAP, the collaboration with Deloitte and AWS offers an opportunity to extend the vision of streamlined business to more organisations.
“We are delighted to see that Deloitte and AWS are collaborating to help accelerate delivery and operations of our clients’ SAP HANA-based solutions,” SAP President of Data and Data Management, Greg McStravick, said.
“SAP HANA brings a modern approach to data management, allowing clients to transform their businesses for next-generation industry-specific solutions.
“Deloitte’s work with AWS will further enable our mutual clients to drive innovation and ultimately run simple.”
