Our solutions

In the Transformative Age, a winning business depends on intelligence-powered operations. Organizations must be able to quickly and effortlessly respond to threats and capitalize on emerging opportunities while being able to see and prepare for what’s ahead. That takes a deep and real-time understanding of the business – one that enables them to see at a glance what’s working and what’s not, and to make informed business decisions to drive efficiency and growth. Building such an intelligent enterprise takes more than technology implementation. Often it takes end-to-end transformation.

We can help your organization to become more agile, overcome challenges and achieve better, faster results within the digital economy.

  • Agile Business Customer: The ultimate in customer relationship management.

    Consumer behavior is changing. In 2018, an estimated $2.5 trillion was spent on online retail sales globally, with nearly one in four online shoppers shopping online at least once a week. Furthermore, customer expectations are rising all the time, leading both B2C and B2B businesses to focus more on customer experience.

    To keep up, organizations need to maximize the value that they gain from digital channels and make use of their exponentially increasing pools of data to gain valuable insights into their customers. Big data and analytics will be key to delivering relevant and valuable customer content in future. Organizations must transfer to a simplified IT architecture to take full advantage of these technologies, however.

    EY’s Agile Business Customer offering is enabled by SAP Hybris Marketing and the Customer Experience Suite. It aims to bring the customer’s vision of how business should be done close to reality. This is achieved through significant changes to customer applications and a purpose-led approach to transformation.

    We use the EY Agile Marketing Business Calculator to assess your organization’s current situation and then work with you to identify which modules should be implemented in each phase of the implementation road map.

  • Agile Business Finance: Improving the efficiency of finance functions.

    More and more financial data is available to organizations, yet few really understand how to get the most value out of it. So it is down to finance professionals to adopt the new technological tools and advanced business processes that will give decision-makers the instant insights they need.

    Agile Business Finance uses the capability of SAP S/4HANA Finance to improve the efficiency of our clients’ finance functions. We work with our clients to define and implement innovative solutions for their business challenges, including general ledger migration, revenue recognition and transfer pricing.

  • Agile Business People: The basis for making strategic workforce decisions.

    Complex legacy systems are shackling HR teams with multiple, fragmented tools that deny them a holistic view of their entire global workforce. Pressures associated with compliance, cost and transparency demand increased HR process automation, simplification and standardization. Organizations need to modernize their recruitment processes to reflect the role of online channels in recruitment. Finally, as employees expect to be able to work flexibly and remotely, organizations also need to employ effective cloud solutions that offer a high degree of security.

    EY’s Agile Business People offering combines our leading global people advisory capability with a proven SAP SuccessFactors implementation methodology and highly experienced consultants.

  • Agile Business Risk: Transform into an agile, resilient and secure organization.

    As the digital economy evolves, it is leading to an increase in both the volume and the value of data held by organizations. The result is that the likelihood of a data breach, and the potential for it to cause serious damage, are greater than ever before. Governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) functions are struggling to keep up with the multiplication in cybersecurity risks. Instead they are often engaged in isolated and uncoordinated activities that increase costs while delivering limited value.

    EY’s Agile Business Risk is a dedicated and SAP-focused digital risk and compliance offering that combines our expertise in both cybersecurity and SAP. Since we understand how cybersecurity can impact on an organization’s long-term goals and bottom line, we use this service offering to help you navigate cybersecurity challenges, especially in the context of SAP, and support transformation into an agile, resilient and secure organization.

  • Agile Business Supply Chain: Reinventing the supply chain to simplify the lead-to-cash process.

    Digitalization of the supply chain has led to the complete reinvention of manufacturing. Cycle times have shortened, sales and delivery channels have proliferated in number, and product and service designs have become reoriented on the end user as an individual consumer. In addition, platforms and networks have started to dominate supply chain operations.

    Investment in IoT hardware — from sensors embedded in manufacturing equipment and products through to electronically tagged items along the supply chain — is only the starting point of the value equation. The biggest competitive gains come when tools such as analytics enable IoT data to inform decisions that improve operations and drive business value. For example, data from sensors on equipment can be used to predict when the equipment is wearing down or needs repair, reducing both maintenance costs and unplanned downtime. Inventory management could also change radically if inventory management systems are used to automatically place supply orders for refilling warehouses.

  • Agile Tax: End-to-end framework, enabled by SAP, to transform and future proof the tax function

    Agile Tax is EY’s framework of end-to-end tax transformation and technology enablement application strategies, enabled by SAP . This reflects a holistic approach that addresses increasing reporting requirements and helps drive significant value through creating efficiencies in the finance operating model, improving tax risk management and cash savings from faster available tax sensitized strategic information.
