Capgemini partners with SAP to accelerate the adoption of SAP S/4HANA® with the release of the next generation of Capgemini’s Path industry solutions leveraging SAP® Model Company

Capgemini announced today that it is rolling out the next generation of its highly successful Path industry solutions portfolio, which will combine SAP® Model Company with Capgemini’s deep industry-sector expertise. This evolution of the Path solutions aims to help companies further adopt SAP S/4HANA® in an accelerated and cost-effective manner.

As part of Capgemini’s long-standing relationship with SAP, and to continue to be at the forefront of meeting customers’ needs in accelerating the pace of their digital transformations and value generation, Capgemini and SAP are closely collaborating to expand SAP Model Company offerings with Capgemini’s proven Path industry solutions.

Capgemini has built a leadership position in the market as a provider of services for SAP solutions with its industry-specific, pre-configured Path solutions. The Capgemini solutions are designed to help clients accelerate the value realization and lower the total cost of ownership of SAP software. The newly released Path solutions are an all-in-one offer bundling software, services and hosting. They include end-to-end industry-specific capabilities built on SAP S/4HANA as the digital core, with select extended processes supported by SAP solutions. The Capgemini Path solutions will embed SAP Model Company as a pre-packaged framework of services. The first wave of next-generation Path solutions will cover the automotive industry, with subsequent waves planned to extend SAP Model Company solutions with other Capgemini Path industry offerings.

According to Brad Little, Executive VP and Application Services Practices Global Head at Capgemini, “The new generation of Path solutions will allow our clients to further drive their digital transformation and realize value more quickly thanks to our tailored solutions and sector expertise. Combining that capability with SAP Model Company and SAP Value Assurance services will help promote measurable value, whether implementing SAP software for the first time, or migrating to SAP S/4HANA from a legacy SAP software environment.”

As one of the early adopters of SAP Model Company services, Capgemini has achieved SAP qualification for SAP Model Company at the solution level. This will allow Capgemini to develop content extensions for an SAP Model Company service through the development environment for SAP Model Company.

“We are pleased to be working closely with Capgemini on applying SAP Model Company and providing customers with enhanced content and further expertise,” said Stephan Klein, Senior VP and Head of SAP Model Company. “This collaboration helps our clients to secure their implementation with faster, more predictable results as well as increased flexibility.”

To accelerate the adoption of these solutions, Capgemini has expanded the scope of its offering, which has been successfully helping a number of customers adopt SAP S/4HANA. This capability can now assist customers with upgrades and transformations of existing SAP software environments, as well as new implementations of SAP S/4HANA, leveraging Capgemini’s portfolio of Path industry solutions.  The dedicated team, tools and methodologies support all the phases of a migration project to SAP S/4HANA, from assessment to go-live and support, with an industrialized migration approach.

The portfolio of Path solutions and details about the Capgemini offer will be showcased at SAPPHIRE NOW® being held June 5–7 in Orlando, Florida.
