This broad recognition validates Deloitte’s strength in supporting clients with end-to-end capabilities that span from the back office to the front office.

May 20, 2020—Deloitte announced that it has received three 2020 SAP® Pinnacle Awards, which recognise its outstanding contributions as an SAP partner. Awards include SAP S/4HANA® Partner of the Year–Large Enterprise Customers, SAP S/4HANA® Cloud Partner of the Year–Large Enterprise and SAP® SuccessFactors® Partner of the Year–Large Enterprise. SAP presents these awards annually to the top partners that have excelled in developing and growing their partnership with SAP and helping customers run better. Winners and finalists in 34 categories were chosen based on recommendations from the SAP field, customer feedback and performance indicators.

“Our partnerships give us the ability to be a part of the broader conversation—and their impact is both evident and critical to our customers’ success,” said Christian Klein, CEO of SAP. “Partners are the heart and soul of our vision for the Intelligent Enterprise and play an important role in turning this vision into reality for our customers. We are looking forward to jointly delivering success to our customers with our vibrant and successful ecosystem—now and in the future.”

SAP Pinnacle Awards shine a spotlight on SAP’s partners’ remarkable contributions, acknowledging their dedication to teamwork, innovative approach and capacity to challenge what is possible to help customers achieve their goals. This year marks the third consecutive year that Deloitte has received an SAP Pinnacle Award as SAP SuccessFactors Partner of the Year. This award also marks the fourth time, in the past five years, that Deloitte has received an SAP Pinnacle Award for SAP S/4HANA Partner of the Year.

“Earning the award as SAP SuccessFactors Partner of the Year for three years in a row is a testament to the dedication of our diverse global team—which includes specialists in SAP technology enablement, human experience design and business transformation,” said Beth Thiebault, principal and global SAP human capital management leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP . “Our team understands that connecting the dots to help clients create human-centric organisations is also about helping them create more responsive and innovative organisations.”

Additionally, Deloitte is equally proud to have also been awarded the following awards from SAP and SAP affiliated companies in 2019 and 2020:

  • 2019 SAP Concur Growth Partner Award, which recognised two pioneering partners that leverage digital innovation to help customers run at their best.
  • Qualtrics Customer Experience Partner of the Year for developing leading capabilities and innovative offerings that help unlock the full potential of Qualtrics technology, allowing leading global organisations to rapidly deploy experience management capabilities that elevate the human experience and drive measurable business value.

  • Partner Learning Excellence
  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud Platform Partner of the Year – Small and Midsize Companies

“Our team takes tremendous pride in the work we do alongside SAP as we help clients worldwide reimagine and transform their businesses with SAP solutions,” said Jan Waals, principal and global SAP chief commercial officer, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “As we continue to help organisations enable the intelligent, ‘built to evolve’ Kinetic Enterprise™ as well as the ‘human first’ enterprise, the SAP S/4HANA digital core ERP and the SAP SuccessFactors Human Experience Management Suite have been central to that work. This broad recognition demonstrates that our efforts on behalf of clients are allowing global leaders to achieve peak results with SAP technologies.”

“This broad recognition from SAP helps validate our strength in supporting clients with end-to-end capabilities that span from the back office to the front office, from workforce experience to customer experience, from on-premises systems to the cloud” said Liz Fasciana, vice chair and global SAP offering and platform leader, Deloitte MSC Limited . “With organisations of all sizes seeking total solutions that allow them to respond at the pace of disruption, our team across the globe continues to step forward with a full range of services and innovative tools.”

Deloitte has been collaborating and co-innovating with SAP for more than three decades. The latest SAP Pinnacle Awards for Deloitte join multiple other SAP awards the firm has earned over the years—including the inaugural SAP Pinnacle Award as Digital Partner of the Year in 2019.

“Over the course of our relationship with SAP, guiding clients through their transformation journeys has always been our main focus,” said Darwin Deano, principal and SAP CTO, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “As disruption accelerates and new challenges emerge, the transformation journey can change rapidly. The ‘built to evolve’ Kinetic Enterprise becomes critical—delivering intelligent capabilities, cloud-enabled responsiveness, a clean core and an extended ecosystem of services that can allow businesses to move at the speed of disruption. Our ongoing collaboration with SAP allows us to deliver solutions for turning that vision into a reality for organisations worldwide.”
