In this section we will keep you up to speed with what's going on in various projects.
Sophos develop and supply ‘Award-winning endpoint protection with artificial intelligence and EDR, giving unmatched defence against malware, exploits and ransomware’
Through dedicated account management, the customer has given itelligence the opportunity to demonstrate our SAP expertise and derive additional value from their existing SAP estate. Sophos has a small Warehouse based on Abingdon, Oxfordshire which was run on proprietary software but we persuaded them to bring this functionality into SAP to provide greater integration with their logistics processes, and access greater accuracy and visibility of their stock. The Warehouse Management project was recently delivered successfully on time and under budget. SOPHOS will now review this pilot project as the proving ground for stock management in SAP with potential follow-on rollouts to their global warehouses.
KPMG has successfully gone live with a new BW on HANA platform. This is a strategic platform for KPMG and will be a key focus for them over the remainder of this year as they look to consolidate their reporting capability.
Now that we have a stable platform and KPMG can see the benefits coming through, they have decided to go ahead with a further BW upgrade to BW/4HANA, preparation for which has already started. SAP BW/4HANA 2.0 presents the reality of a modern packaged data warehousing solution. With the latest innovations and enhancements included within BW/4HANA 2.0 combined with the fact that SAP’s future focus and investment will be on that, this new version has undoubtedly tipped the scales in strengthening the business case for BW/4HANA.
The EU VAT project has recently gone live at Kingspan Insulation. This was a key project roll-out for Kingspan and had high visibility from their board. The project was successful due to significant business testing that resulted in zero defects and will be used as the model for all future engagements with Kingspan. Work is already underway on the next project with the incorporation of a new site in Glossop onto the SAP platform.
This success follows on from the System Refresh project that was concluded in early February, a true collaboration with the AMS team, where our teams worked seamlessly to deliver a time critical system refresh on time and within budget.
L.E.K Consulting progresses their transformation journey with further successful go-lives of SAP Cloud ERP as itelligence delivers their global SAP template.
- We have now gone live with the entire solution in France and Germany.
- We have also just gone live with the core Finance template in South Korea.
- We did a successful proof of concept for SAP Analytics for Cloud, and are close to the first phase implementation (Partner Dashboards).
The L.E.K. Finance Transformation Programme aims to consolidate their dispersed back office systems into one common platform. This will enable seamless integrated business operations functionality with streamlined and improved process improvement initiatives.
The SAP Business ByDesign solution successfully went live for the Phase 1 functionality (the first building blocks of the global template) in the UK and Australia during October 2017, followed by Singapore, India and Japan in 2018. The global template was further extended in UK/AU to include the HR/Resourcing/Self Services/Concur functions in 2018 to complete the solution footprint. The primary target for Q1 2019 was to complete the full solution rollout to the rest of their European centres, i.e. France and Germany and further extend the Finance solution into South Korea. This was a key strategic milestone for the programme, as this completes 1 full geographical region (Europe) on the entire solution and enables them to start consolidation across the countries in Europe as a group.
We are working with the core user groups to make the user adoption journey as smooth as possible in the different regions…and this programme is currently looking at completing the core Finance rollout in China and USA (their biggest market) in the coming months, and then extending the footprint of the solution to those countries as well as the rest of APAC.
