In acknowledgement of its leading capabilities in Cloud ERP and HR, delaware has received the SAP Partner Excellence Award 2019 for EMEA North for best-performing partner based on total cloud revenue. The award was presented last week in Barcelona, during the FKOM event.

Business advisor and IT services provider delaware opted resolutely for the cloud approach a few years ago and started a co-innovation project with SAP, becoming one of the first worldwide customers to roll out SAP S/4 HANA Cloud for Professional Services. delaware has been working with the SAP Cloud ERP solution since May 2017, with SuccessFactors as a Cloud HR layer on top. By taking this step towards the cloud, the company itself acquired first-hand knowledge of how to implement ERP and HR cloud solutions successfully – both in the public and private cloud.

Demonstrating commitment to innovation

Today, delaware’s continuous focus on innovation is paying off. The organization realized overall year-on-year growth of 69%, with the cloud business growing by an impressive 487%. In fact, in 2018, delaware was one of the first partners globally to close an ‘S/4 Single Tenant on Azure’ deal.
“It’s no coincidence that we are closing so many Cloud ERP and Cloud HR deals. Since 2012, we’ve been working together with SAP to develop a profound cloud strategy in order to prepare our organization for the cloud market. One of the facets of this strategic alignment was the implementation of SAP S/4 HANA cloud at delaware itself, but we also held cloud strategy workshops and assessed together with SAP the cloud impact on our reselling and consultancy business model. Today, we reap the benefits of our close partnership with SAP. We confidently lead customers into an innovative, cloud-first world offering the full scope of SAP (cloud) solutions,” says Denis Van Waetermeulen, SAP Cloud Manager at delaware.

In 2018, delaware showed its unceasing commitment to be innovative, not least by certifying nine SAP cloud partner-packaged solutions. In 2019, delaware will continue along the same innovative path, in line with the organization’s motto of ‘growing towards truly smart’.
