IBM and SAP are deepening their partnership with plans to develop several new offerings designed to create a more predictable journey for businesses to become data-driven intelligent enterprises.
The Evolution Partnership initiative intends to deliver new intelligent industry solutions to enable end-to-end processes that help companies accelerate the modernization of systems and workflows.
Over 400 businesses have modernized their enterprise systems and business processes through IBM and SAP’s digital transformation partnership.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to significantly impact many industries across the globe, organizations are realizing they need the agility to seamlessly adapt to changing market conditions and customer demand.
“Organizations’ short- and long-term futures are being defined by their ability to proactively respond to today’s challenging, unprecedented market conditions,” said Adaire Fox-Martin, member of the Executive Board of SAP SE. “Companies gain competitive advantage by unlocking data up and down their value chain, uncovering new revenue opportunities and creating exceptional experiences for their customers and employees, while also demanding faster time to value. SAP’s partnership with IBM brings together the power of world-leading intelligent applications and technology expertise to realize value more quickly, which in turn fuels the transformations that will support businesses today and into the future. This partnership will serve our customers in the marketplace and on their balance sheets.”
The next evolution of the IBM and SAP partnership aims to help drive faster business transformation time to value, accelerate industry innovation through industry-specific data value offerings, turbocharge customer and employee experiences, and provide ultimate flexibility and choice to run their workloads in hybrid cloud environments.
This new IBM and SAP collaboration plans to deliver solutions designed to unlock new value for clients:
- Reinvent Workflows with Intelligent Industry End-to-End Processes
- Provide Flexibility with Hybrid Cloud Solutions
- Reimagine Customer and Employee Experiences
- Automating Processes to Accelerate Transformation
The new offerings will be based on SAP’s intelligent suite and SAP’s industry cloud solutions and will enable clients to benefit from SAP and IBM technologies, such as AI, machine learning, automation and analytics.
These offerings will be built on IBM’s new evolution platform, which provides a single view of IBM solutions, including preconfigured Industry Impact Solutions, and interoperates with SAP’s Business Technology Platform, allowing enterprises to create advanced insights, integrate capabilities and build, extend and enhance SAP applications.
This combination aims to help clients more efficiently benefit from SAP’s intelligent suite, migrate to the cloud, transform data into business value and utilize emerging technologies to support intelligent workflows.
