(NYSE: N), a leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, and Deloitte have formed an alliance to provide implementation, finance transformation, change management and a full breadth of consulting services to the market.
"NetSuite's demonstrated/time-tested, customizable solution gives us the platform to answer the growing demand for cloud ERP which we have seen from businesses of all sizes," said Paul Clemmons, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and Deloitte's Emerging Technologies Lead.
