Technical Wholesale - SAP S4HANA Migration

Migration to SAP HANA powers Real-Time Retail

The Sting knew it was taking too long to do in-depth analysis in their BW system and needed to provide ‘Real-time Retail’. Migrating to SAP HANA provided immediate business value with a much faster system for better sales analysis.

Founded in 1982, with their first store in Tilburg, the Netherlands, The Sting has grown to become a major Young Fashion retail chain. They provide cutting edge fashion, creative thinking, and operate a fair and honest business philosophy.

The Challenge

SAP has been the core business system for The Sting for more than 15 years, with BW in place for much of that time. But keeping pace of the fast moving retail market meant having real-time data to increase its analysis and reporting performance, giving them instant insight on customer experience and behaviour.
