Transforming the enterprise with SAP solutions brings big questions about “how”—especially when it comes to solution architecture, technology infrastructure, and systems integration.
The layers of the Joint Reference Architecture include Deloitte assets and services—as well as SAP solutions such as SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Technology Platform—at every level. The architecture layers include:
Layer 0 | Core Infrastructure | Responsive
SAP solutions on any premises—including the major cloud hyperscalers
Layer 1 | Business Processes | Clean
Layer 2 | Data-to-Value | Intelligent
Layer 3 | Integration | Inclusive
Layer 4 | Extensibility | Intelligent
Layer 5 | User Experience | Inclusive
Designed to elevate the human experience for users, with architecture designed for SAP Fiori, SAP Business Application Studio, SAP Analytics Cloud, Qualtrics® Experience Management, and other SAP and non-SAP solutions
With the Joint Reference Architecture by Deloitte and SAP, you can think less about how to put together all the pieces of the built-to-evolve Kinetic Enterprise on your RISE with SAP. The Joint Reference Architecture provides a detailed design and set of instructions that allows you to build a future-facing digital organization with more confidence—and with flexibility.
Focused on SAP solutions, the architecture also allows you to transform at your own pace, adopt industry-specific solutions, select the cloud infrastructure that suits your organization best, and incorporate enabling solutions beyond the SAP ecosystem.
As the first global SAP partner to collaborate with SAP on a Joint Reference Architecture for RISE with SAP, Deloitte leverages a long history of industry-specific innovation with SAP and SAP customers—one that extends back more than 30 years. It’s one of the big reasons Deloitte continues to earn recognition from analysts and top honors from SAP—including the SAP Pinnacle Award as SAP S/4HANA Partner of the Year (Large Enterprise) for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020, and 2021. Deloitte also earned the 2021 SAP Pinnacle Awards as Delivery Excellence Partner of the Year.
The Joint Reference Architecture is far more than a thought exercise. It’s a real-world asset—a powerful, tested playbook that Deloitte clients across the globe are already using for their SAP-enabled transformations. And it is one that that has been developed using leading practices based on Deloitte’s industry-leading work with SAP customers.
