Accenture and SAP SE plan to expand their collaboration on SAP S/4HANA to develop a digital industry platform that will help chemical companies. SAP S/4HANA Chemicals is a re-launch of SAP Best Practices for Chemicals and SAP Business All-in-One for Chemicals solutions. Optimized to run on the SAP HANA platform and enhanced with SAP Fiori UX, the new solution targets embedded analytics, enabling real-time decision making and predictive simulation capabilities. The solution is expected to be delivered on premise or hosted in the cloud, helping to blueprint a public cloud in the chemical industry, according to SAP.

“A host of forces are disrupting the chemical industry – geopolitical risks, changing customer desires, growth challenges, population changes, digital technology proliferation and pervasive volatility, to name a few,” says Rachael Bartels, managing director and Chemicals and Natural Resources global industry lead for Accenture. “As chemical industry executives strive for growth in this landscape, new technology can play a major role in unlocking all available value from their processes.”

Thorsten Wenzel, vice president and global head, Chemicals, SAP SE, says, “More than ever before, market dynamics can jeopardize classical business models, and chemical companies must inspire and shape a digital chemical world in order to pave the way for sustainable growth and outcome-oriented performance.”
