BOSTON—Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and SAP today announced an advancement of their strategic partnership to provide companies with a value-generating, full-lifecycle offering combining BCG’s best in class enterprise resource planning (ERP) strategy with SAP’s technology, including SAP Signavio and LeanIX solutions, to accelerate their business transformations.

Companies face many challenges on their ERP journeys, from defining the right approach to building a resilient strategy that can adapt to rapid changes in technology such as the current GenAI revolution. Through this collaboration, BCG and SAP will help companies take a proactive and accelerated end-to-end approach to transformation, enabling them to optimize processes and allowing them to maximize value-creation in a manner that fosters confidence throughout the organization.

Designed specifically for companies aiming to transform into more strategic and value-focused organizations through platform optimization and the adoption of AI and cloud technologies, the partnership will unlock new capabilities and continuous innovation by combining BCG's expertise in enterprise strategy and industry-specific market insights with SAP Signavio and LeanIX solutions. This comprehensive approach empowers leaders by providing data-driven insights for informed decision-making across the entire business with a focus on achieving tangible and ongoing business outcomes and reducing time-to-value.

“We envision a future where this digital solution is initiated during the SAP S/4HANA transformation and then becomes a living part of our, and BCG’s, clients’ ecosystems, equipping them to become their own change agents, and inspiring a widespread shift towards more value-focused, fact-based decision-making,” said Mani Pirouz, chief business officer at SAP Signavio & LeanIX. “What sets this offering apart is its holistic view–spanning process optimization, overarching architectural considerations, and most importantly, strategic business transformation objectives.”

“Creating value through transformation needn’t be seen as a one-time opportunity,” said Neveen Awad, a managing director and partner at BCG, and the firm’s Technology Platforms global leader. “With this joint offering with SAP, we’re enabling our clients to approach ERP transformation as an ongoing and proactive organizational mindset, rather than a series of big and finite projects necessitated every decade or so as a reaction to major evolutions within the broader business environment, like we’re seeing now with GenAI.”
