Business Technology (BT) and Architecture

The new generation of ERP solutions is taking shape as best-of-breed cloud architectures, with a multitude of heterogeneous business and technology solutions driving the success of organisations through integrated data and business processes.

We at PwC can help companies define their ERP application and technology architectures, all the way from the strategy and road map to design and deployment.

PwC has a unique partnership with SAP ‒ RISE with SAP, Transcend with PwC ‒ to help companies maximise the benefits of RISE with SAP. We enable them to design and deploy their cloud architectures leveraging SAP’s reference architectures and operational models tailored for their preferred cloud hyperscaler and their compliance and security requirements.

We also help companies automate data and business process integrations amid heterogeneous business and technology solutions and challenging compliance requirements (e.g. SOX and cross-border data residency). PwC is uniquely positioned to help companies get the best out of the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP), using its SAP Integration Suite and third-party integration tools to achieve a compliant and automated integration architecture.

ESG Steering and Reporting

Incorporating ESG data is now crucial for companies to thrive in the dynamic world we live in today. What’s needed is a comprehensive ESG strategy that transcends compliance and can generate tangible value and  elevate a company’s risk management, operations and overall performance.

Transparency and accountability can be achieved by integrating ESG considerations into all business functions, empowering organisations to achieve their sustainability goals. PwC recognises that technology is essential in enabling holistic ESG strategies. To this end, we have partnered with SAP, pooling our collective expertise and leveraging SAP’s new sustainable business solutions, to help companies adopt a technology-driven approach to sustainable value creation and growth.

With our expertise we can help you to apply these solutions to meet your specific regulatory requirements, steer your value creation and make you adaptable in the face of the rapidly changing regulatory landscape. By harnessing the power of data-driven insights through system integrations, companies can go beyond mere compliance, access new opportunities such as circular economy and enhance stakeholder engagement. With growing pressure from stakeholders to prioritise sustainability, leading companies recognise this as an opportunity to develop and differentiate themselves. What about you?

What our clients say

Global leader in fluid engineering

PwC helped by adapting a business-led, technology-enabled approach. The easyShop project was run as a fully integrated procurement transformation, not a tool implementation. What made the difference was PwC’s BXT method, an approach bringing together Business, eXperience and Technology to drive innovation and meet business objectives.

We harnessed the full power of collaborative design by integrating the firm’s team and stakeholders, key end-users and PwC. Together we were able to complete the global design as per plan with strong business leadership and engagement. The go-live was achieved in around six months.

“Usability and simplicity are key when it comes to managing our complex business and system landscape. EasyShop (SAP Ariba solutions) allows us to keep our procurement simple and standardised. It’s enabled our staff to complete tasks faster and better.”

Achieving Platinum status is clear proof of the successful partnership PwC Switzerland has with SAP, a company that we work with globally, helping to create the digital future of our clients. This achievement means a lot to us – and not just because it shows an even greater recognition of our capabilities when it comes to successfully delivering SAP transformation projects. We’re also really pleased about the advantages that come with being a Platinum Partner, which will also benefit our clients.
