Today, Deloitte announced the Kinetic Microservices portfolio’s expansion with the launch of four industry-focused solutions built on SAP’s open cloud platform.

A strategic fusion of SAP’s cloud solutions and Deloitte's existing collection of industry innovation, such as IoT-enabled cold-chain logistics and artificial-intelligence-enabled inventory optimization, the new solutions address a broad range of use cases, needs and business challenges for automotive, retail, life sciences and consumer goods industries.

"We are excited to help our clients realize value with these new solutions," said Chip Kleinheksel, principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. SAP innovation leader. “These innovations allow organizations in many industries to choose from multiple paths and to evolve at their own pace."

The cloud solutions will also be part of SAP's industry cloud portfolio, and businesses can take full advantage of SAP Business Technology Platform, including intelligent robotic process automation, IoT capabilities and predictive analytics.

"The beauty of these industry solutions is that they can become even more powerful when they are integrated with the broader universe of SAP solutions — for procurement, supply chain, customer experience, the workforce, and other critical business areas," Kleinheksel said. "Although each Kinetic Microservice can stand on its own to support specific business outcomes, when you start connecting them as part of a web of end-to-end digital threads, you can dramatically multiply the value."

Customers can choose to deploy on an existing SAP environment or during a new implementation of SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (greenfield migration), which includes complete re-engineering and process simplification. In either case, Deloitte’s Kinetic Microservices adjusts to serve specific business needs.

"SAP and Deloitte have been collaborating and co-innovating for more than 30 years to help organizations evolve and grow their businesses with SAP solutions — tapping the power of their data to drive insights, generate efficiencies, and deliver services that delight their customers," said Peter Maier, president of industries and customer advisory at SAP.
