SAP, PwC driving digital transformation and cloud success in West Africa
World Bank: digitalisation is one of the most transformational opportunities of our time, highlighting its role in alleviating poverty and boosting shared prosperity in West Africa.
The partnership between SAP and PwC is driving digital transformation and success in cloud computing in West Africa. This is according to Titilayo Adewumi, Regional Sales Director for West Africa at SAP.
She said in a release today that companies across the region are adopting cloud to achieve greater scalability, improve their data and analytics capabilities, drive innovation and build greater resilience, noting that a huge part of the company’s success in supporting the region's digital transformation efforts is its close collaboration with expert partners that continuously find new ways to innovate.
The World Bank recently noted that digitalisation is one of the most transformational opportunities of our time, highlighting its role in alleviating poverty and boosting shared prosperity in West Africa.
SAP says cloud technologies offer tremendous benefits to organisations in the region. These include lowering the total cost of ownership of technology capabilities, achieving faster deployment cycles, automating manual processes to boost efficiency, enabling quicker adoption of emerging technologies, and creating opportunities for organisations to leverage industry best practices to standardise their business processes.
Adewumi singled out the partnership with global consulting firm PwC as a major driver of digital transformation success in the region.
"PwC's innovative approach to solving business problems through technology combined with keen business insight has helped organisations across the region become more successful and build capabilities fit-for-purpose in the highly competitive digital economy,” said Adewumi. “From enabling remote work and driving adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning to gain insight into key business areas, to meeting the demand for improved user experiences, SAP's partnership with PwC is delivering game-changing benefits to innovative companies throughout the region."
PwC is an SAP Platinum member with years of experience implementing SAP's solutions and co-innovating on new ways to apply technology to solve key business challenges. According to SAP, PwC's unique value equation combines deep sector experience and business-led perspective with SAP's technology innovation to help businesses accelerate growth and sustain value through user-centric transformation.
"Our partnership with SAP has unlocked significant value to PwC customers,” said Abimbola Taiwo, Director, Tech Advisory & ERP Lead at PwC Nigeria. “By supporting West African organisations for the future of work through cloud technology, we help them enable secure remote and hybrid work. Innovation and collaboration are further driven through the replacement of disparate IT systems with one consolidated system that serves as a single source of truth, offering real-time visibility over key business functions."
PwC recently introduced its New Equation global strategy that focuses on two interconnected organisational needs: building trust across the broad range of areas that are important to stakeholders, and delivering sustained outcomes in an operating environment where the risk of disruption is greater than ever before.
Taiwo said there are plans to work even closer with SAP over the coming years, adding that the partnership is a strategic alliance that helps PwC achieve one of our six focus areas for Africa, namely Digitisation and Technology.
“SAP is a partner-led organisation that works closely with the innovators, experts, and market leaders to ensure African enterprises have the technology, business insight and support they need to bring their intelligent enterprise ambitions to life. We look forward to deepening our partnership with PwC and being central role-players in the continued digitalisation of organisations across the West African region,” Adewumi added.
