Alliance Consulting will use the SAP Business Suite to run its own internal operations, and partner with SAP for IT consulting and software solutions delivery to midsize firms.
As an SAP customer, SAP Business Suite will enable Alliance to reap the benefits of an integrated business process platform, achieve true IT and business alignment, provide scalability and a platform for corporate growth—as well as provide greater interconnectivity and increased visibility of its business operations to its 1,000 global consultants.
With both companies as deep subject-matter experts in business applications, business intelligence and data management, the services partnership combines Alliance’s best-practice and business expertise with SAP world-class business applications.
Says Rich Napoli, executive VP, Alliance Consulting, “Being a client of SAP ourselves, we understand the value this software can bring to a midsize firm. We are uniquely positioned to help SAP clients because of our size. We have the depth of talent to bring real results to these firms, but we’re not too big to forget that these clients need practical results fast and at a fair price. We’re helping clients leverage the full value of SAP applications to enhance revenue while improving compliance and containing costs. We are able to provide clients with a competitive advantage through processes and data management that govern commitments and performance across the entire enterprise.”
Alliance has large consulting company capabilities with small company flexibility and cost, providing business advisory knowledge in addition to technology expertise. As an SAP services partner, Alliance has a dedicated Implementation Practice filled with experienced SAP professionals and a strong track-record of success. Its business acumen, flexible engagement model and global delivery capabilities make Alliance and an ideal solution provider for companies that need the subject matter expertise of a large firm, but the client focus and nimble attributes of a smaller firm.
