SAP selects Delaware Consulting to resell SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Antwerp, 29 November 2016 – Thanks to its participation in SAP’s Lighthouse Program, Delaware Consulting is now one of the first six global resellers of S/4HANA Cloud. This partnership allows Delaware Consulting to provide customers all over the world access to the full range of innovative SAP products, both on-premise and in the cloud. Being both a Lighthouse partner and one of the first customers of S/4HANA Professional Services Cloud, Delaware Consulting is uniquely positioned to help organizations build a fit-for-purpose IT environment in the digital world. SAP S/4HANA Cloud is available in Enterprise Management Cloud, Professional Services Cloud, Finance Cloud and Manufacturing Cloud (expected).

Delaware Consulting has a proven track record in SAP implementations and is looking forward to supporting mid-size and large organizations in the acceleration of their digital transformation journey. SAP’s S/4HANA enterprise suite is a building block for the digital economy, guiding businesses towards innovative, real-time business models and laying the foundation for new value propositions.

Committed to cloud solutions

“At Delaware Consulting, we have strategically chosen to commit ourselves to cloud solutions. As from April 2017 our entire global organization will run on S/4HANA Professional Services Cloud. Furthermore, we are engaged in a three-year co-development program with SAP to shape Professional Services Cloud based on our deep knowledge of the services business. This co-development expertise, combined with the experience we are gaining throughout our own implementation journey, has allowed us to extensively deepen our knowledge of the SAP cloud offering,” says Filip Decostere, partner at Delaware Consulting.

“We can offer our customers all the building blocks for a complete cloud-based ecosystem, extending the core S/4HANA cloud functionalities with development capabilities based on HANA Cloud Platform (HCP) and other cloud solutions such as SAP Cloud for Customer (C4C), Ariba and SuccessFactors. Furthermore, the template-based approach of rolling out S/4HANA in the cloud is in line with Delaware’s industry-specific FAST solutions offering that builds on a standards-based implementation methodology,” adds Folker Lamote, senior manager at Delaware Consulting.

Boosting transformation

“Thanks to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, mid-size organizations and local branches of multinationals are guaranteed rapid implementation of key processes, combining a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) with automatic upgrade cycles to the newest releases. We are convinced that many organizations will seize the opportunity to accelerate their digital transformation, working together with Delaware Consulting as their trusted and global long-term partner. Very soon, we will be announcing our first customer deal on S/4HANA Cloud,” continues Folker Lamote.

Ross Wainwright, Global Head of SAP S/4HANA Cloud at SAP, comments: “Delaware has a history of driving transformation in Europe, the US and other parts of the world. Delaware truly understands the power of leveraging the cloud to drive down the TCO and accelerate transformation for our customers.”
