Awards presented at SAP Field Kick-Off Meeting 2018

NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte today announced that it is the recipient of three SAP® North America Partner Excellence Awards 2018 — for SAP S/4HANA®, Partner Growth and Value Assurance. Awards were presented by SAP (SAP) to the top-performing SAP partners in the North America region that have made outstanding contributions to driving customers' digital transformation. Recipients of this year's awards have been — in collaboration with SAP — helping customers adopt innovation easily, gain results rapidly, grow sustainably and run more simply with SAP solutions.

As used in this document,

"These three awards underscore Deloitte's strength in digital core transformation and helping customers deliver the results they need to compete in a constantly disrupted business environment," said Abdi Goodarzi, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and U.S. SAP practice leader. "As we collaborate with SAP and work with organizations across industries, we understand that achieving growth and generating new value will require more than an ability to reimagine business processes. It will require an ability to reimagine everything — an entire universe of possibilities with SAP solutions."

Selected from SAP's wide-ranging partner base, nominations for the SAP Partner Excellence Awards were based on internal SAP sales data. A steering committee composed of regional and global SAP representatives determined winning partners in each category according to numerous criteria such as sales achievement and performance. Awards were presented in a variety of categories, including overall sales, innovation, technology, services and solution-specific areas.

In addition to receiving three of the seven SAP North America Partner Excellence Awards that SAP awarded to its top-tier collaborators, Deloitte was named SAP Leonardo Partner of the Year and SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud Partner of the Year in the Asia Pacific Japan region — as well as the SAP S/4HANA Partner of the Year in China. Deloitte also received the Service Partner Excellence Award for High-Growth Contribution for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

"The SAP Partner Excellence Awards exemplify the shared purpose, commitment and success that allow our partners, together with SAP, to deliver value to our customers on an ongoing basis," said Rodolpho Cardenuto, president, global channels and general business, SAP. "To that end, I am pleased and honored to recognize and congratulate Deloitte as the recipient of SAP North America Partner Excellence Awards 2018 for SAP S/4HANA, Partner Growth and Value Assurance. We look forward to continuing to work closely together with Deloitte to realize even greater success in 2018."

For Deloitte, the recent recognition reflects decades of effective collaboration with SAP and customer organizations.

"The Deloitte team is proud to have earned seven major awards across global regions, highlighting our achievements in helping customers worldwide reimagine possibilities and transform their businesses with SAP technology," said Jan Waals, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and Deloitte Global SAP practice leader. "This recognition adds to a long list of accomplishments that have grown from our nearly 30-year relationship with SAP. And with a global team of more than 18,200 business and technology professionals focused on SAP solutions, we look forward to even more accomplishments in the future."
