Accenture is collaborating with SAP to develop DAAS (Digital As-a-Service) Business Models that helps high-tech companies quickly and easily create, build and scale new digital business models.
The new solution, SAP Entitlement Management, will help companies dynamically change individual customer access rights and other entitlement attributes, as well as install renewal-automation capabilities, so they can rapidly deploy new offerings and more-flexible pricing structures. Its entitlement-management and embedded analytics capabilities integrate with the commerce and order-management capabilities of the SAP S/4HANA enterprise-resource-planning software suite.
The offering ultimately helps enable companies generate new revenue streams and deliver new products and services to market faster.
“As high-tech companies rapidly transition from stand-alone products to highly connected platforms, they are under mounting pressure to create and scale new intelligent and digital business models,” said David Sovie, senior managing director of Accenture’s High-Tech practice.
“The solution Accenture is developing with SAP will help enable our clients to pivot to as-a-service business models that are more flexible and can be easily customised,” added Sovie.
For this initiative, Accenture is providing consulting, system development and integration, solution implementation and analytics capabilities, alongside its high-tech industry expertise.
“The high-tech industry is in a tremendous period of innovation and business model evolution,” said Stefan Krauss, global general manager, Discrete Manufacturing Industries, SAP.
This new solution builds on Accenture and SAP’s ongoing collaboration to develop and bring to market new industry solutions on SAP S/4HANA.
Accenture also recently launched the Accenture Intelligent Enterprise Platform (AIEP), an insight-driven, digitally integrated platform that powers enterprise transformation from business case to roadmap to delivery. The platform captures the most advanced and disruptive Accenture thinking around industry, innovation and technology to help companies reinvent themselves as intelligent enterprises.
