Introducing Brightwork’s Deloitte Coupon for Terrible SAP Advice

Last Updated on March 4, 2021 by Shaun Snapp

Executive Summary

  • The SAP consulting companies charge top rates but also offer the worst possible advice.
  • With the Brightwork coupon, SAP customers can now get 1/2 on the same horrible advice they have always gotten.

Introduction

At Brightwork, we provide analysis for companies evaluating SAP and Oracle. And in this role, we are exposed to the documentation and information provided to our clients by the major consulting firms. And how is the quality of this advice? It is absolutely horrible! There are so many areas where the SAP consulting firms mislead their “clients,” we cover just a few of these areas in this article.

How SAP Consulting Firms Mislead Clients

  1. One of the first ways is that they do not declare their financial relationship with SAP. The firms make it seem like they represent their client’s interests when representing their own and SAP’s interests over the client. SAP consulting firms will not help their clients negotiate against SAP because that would harm their relationship with SAP.
  2. A second major way is the SAP consulting firm will mindlessly repeat whatever SAP says. No matter how inappropriate the application is for a client, the SAP consulting firms will agree with SAP’s presentation to use the application in question.
  3. A third major way SAP consulting companies conspire against their accounts. The SAP consulting firms share information with SAP about the client to be leveraged by SAP. And they never tell their clients that they do this.
  4. A fourth major way is they communicate no realistic information about SAP applications’ success at other clients, in each case allowing SAP sales to exaggerate their success ratios. Nothing is questioned,  SAP’s timeline estimates, SAP’s roadmap for products, SAP’s methodologies, SAP’s typical overrun on projects, nothing.

Paying Top Rates for the Worst Advice

The SAP consulting companies’ advice creates a curious dynamic where clients pay top rates to get 100% biased information. The consulting companies’ only goal is to bill the maximum number of hours and strengthen their relationship with SAP. And this is why we created the 50% off coupon. With this coupon, any SAP customer will get the standard garbage advice that benefits SAP and the consulting company over the client, but with the coupon, they get 50%. And that is nothing to sneeze at!

Conclusions

The worst advice that benefits the consulting company versus the client is available in SAP consulting’s open market. There is a wide choice in the market. One can be lied to by Deloitte, Infosys, Accenture, IBM, and many other firms. So while the advice is horrible and entirely self-serving, at least SAP customers can choose who will lie to them. And with the Brightwork coupon, they can now get 1/2 off!

It’s a fantastic time to be an SAP customer!
