The strategic alliance between Intel and Deloitte will accelerate the digital transformation of both public-sector and enterprise customers with a twofold focus:
> Fast-tracking the journey to cloud and hybrid cloud environments for the most critical workloads
> Shaping the technology inflections driving industry disruption, including AI, 5G and the Intelligent Edge
The alliance leverages Deloitte’s depth and breadth of consulting and advisory services including its cloud, SAP, Oracle, cyber, AI, 5G and IoT practices. The alliance also benefits from Intel’s technology portfolio, including the latest 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
Deloitte will leverage Intel technology to position clients to transform, migrate and modernize their critical business processes.
“With the launch of the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, we’re able to offer clients greater capabilities in the world of increasing digital transformation,” says John Ciacchella, lead principal for Intel at Deloitte.
He adds: “We have a strong foundation in place through our previous joint offerings with Intel and with enhanced security, increased memory for data center intensive workloads and optimized for faster deployment, the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable platform will allow enterprise and government clients to take a leap forward in data center agility.”
Greg Ernst, VP and GM of U.S. sales at Intel, says: “With Deloitte’s consulting and advisory practices, clients receive their specialized business and technology transformation expertise for strategy, operating model, cloud migration, process modernization, and managed services, to accelerate insights and improve business results.”
Ernst adds: “As an Intel Titanium partner, Deloitte now has access to training and technical support for Intel’s portfolio of technologies including the latest 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processor built to serve all workloads from the edge to the network and the cloud.”
Intel and Deloitte have already launched joint offerings for 2 markets:
> Hybrid cloud: Deloitte and Intel have collaborated on the $1+ billion market opportunity to help federal clients migrate to hybrid-cloud solutions powered by Intel technologies.
The two companies have built reference architectures and proof-of-concepts that illustrate the benefits of Deloitte’s Integrated Multi-Cloud Management solution, which features Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane persistent memory.
The partnership is built on Deloitte’s deep experience serving government, public sector and public agency clients. It also takes advantage of the Intel processor-powered Deloitte Hybrid Cloud and adjacent AI and IoT solutions.
> SAP S/4HANA: Deloitte is SAP’s leading go-to-market partner. Now Deloitte is teaming with Intel to capture client migrations to SAP S/4HANA.
The alliance has deployed Deloitte’s industry-leading SAP preconfigured industry solutions (DLeaPs) on Deloitte-hosted cloud solutions, which feature Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane persistent memory.
Also, the team has installed Deloitte’s preconfigured S/4HANA solution on Intel processors for premier cloud providers that include Google Cloud, AWS and Microsoft Azure.
Together, Deloitte and Intel have tested industry use cases to create joint value propositions. These quantify the benefits of increasing in-memory database capacity; drastically reducing the cost of ownership, whether on premises or in the cloud; and maximizing the value of SAP S/4HANA.
