Selective Transformation

Enable a Kinetic Enterprise by rapidly and strategically upgrading you­r SAP® ERP, powered by Google Cloud


Deloitte’s Selective Transformation offering provides a rapidly deployable solution that can help you accelerate transformation from SAP® ECC to SAP S/4HANA®—leveraging the power of Google Cloud.

Selective Transformation serves effectively

Selective Transformation serves effectively as a super-charged brownfield solution for moving your current SAP ECC environment to SAP S/4HANA and Google Cloud—without requiring you to start from square one. There’s no need to bring along all your technical debt—customized code, legacy systems, and obsolete data—as you transition to a new digital core ERP environment.

The solution identifies and allows you to move just the selected data and processes that matter most to your business, leveraging AI capabilities, Google Cloud technology, and Deloitte’s value-focused transformation services—all to help save you, time, labor, and guesswork.

An intelligent approach to transformation

Selective Transformation is designed to do the heavy thinking and the heavy lifting to:

  • Understand your ERP processes
  • Reimagine and reinvent your business processes
  • Move your SAP core to the cloud—with SAP S/4HANA running on Google Cloud in potentially as little as 16 weeks, from project beginning to end

The solution uses advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, including Deloitte’s Trufa solution, and other advanced tools to identify the data, applications, and processes that matter most in your business—the ones that actually drive value through efficiencies, service, growth, and insights to support decision-making. Selective Transformation generates heat maps and value maps, to pinpoint the resources that you are actually using and that can support your evolving business needs.

It then applies additional AI tools and intelligent automation to move the value-focused assets it has identified into a new SAP S/4HANA digital core ERP environment running on Google Cloud. It’s a "single click" approach that removes the need for your organization to handle many of the technical tasks that typically come with a systems migration or upgrade.


Kinetic impact, key services

SAP S/4HANA on Google Cloud

With Selective Transformation enabled with help from Deloitte, you get the potential benefits of SAP S/4HANA—such as a modern, standardized ERP, industry leading practices, streamlined and simplified processes, centralized finance capabilities, a single source of the truth for transactions, and real-time insights. You also get the potential benefits of Google Cloud and the advantages that come with cloud—such as reduced total cost of ownership, instant access to innovation updates, simplified IT, security, and scalability.

And because Selective Transformation involves Google Cloud, Deloitte can help you rapidly integrate your new SAP S/4HANA on Google Cloud solutions with additional capabilities from Google. For example, you can more readily pull in insights from the Google Ads platform to enrich sales and marketing insights to support decision-making.
