For businesses who have invested in SAP technologies there can be a reluctance to invest in a new system that will help them move from the digital era to the “intelligence era”. Decision makers are often unsure of how to approach the business case – simply because they may not have the facts or the experience to make a careful consideration. They need to know what the implications are for migrating in terms of time, costs and impact.
MEGA Gruppe is a leading independent wholesale distributor in Germany. They supply a full range of products to the painting, floor laying and plastering trade. Their vision for technology was a platform that would help them outperform their business goals – not just today – but in the future. They wanted the best and fastest performance from their ERP system for 1200 in 100 locations.
They were able to make the most of SOA People’s experience, insight and ideas to decide the best approach that would allow them flexible implementation, capability for gradual change and the potential to improve 30-40% of their processes.
MEGA Gruppe’s Head of IT, Jens Hungershausen said:
“Making the decision to migrate requires considerable business and financial justification, often against a backdrop of ensuring your existing SAP environment is kept running, as well as financial controls and cost reduction. MEGA Gruppe wanted to be well prepared technologically for the future so it could not only achieve but exceed its business objectives going forward.
Tamas SZIRTES, Group Innovation Director, SOA People explains:
“As a SAP customer or potential customer for SAP S/4HANA, decision-makers may be wondering how to migrate their data to SAP S/4HANA, from planning through to execution. Our goal is to make that transition simple, transparent and smooth. MEGA Gruppe’s approach was pragmatic and highly effective and we are delighted they have chosen this route to future-proofing their business.
As the SAP S/4HANA transition moves forward, MEGA Gruppe will have the technical foundations to look in depth at their business processes and initiate further projects to drive change in the organisation.
