Approach & Solution
The first objective was to establish a technological evolution roadmap for the transition to SAP BW/4HANA that would guarantee the overall security of the solution’s infrastructural component. The second objective was to manage the application upgrade of the SAP Business Object component, providing the solution with new reporting tools to support daily business operations.
The customer decided to entrust Engineering with the project’s activities, involving us as a reference partner for the application stack of the SAP platform being evolved.
For the operational activities within the scope of the project, thanks to the high level of knowledge in terms of both technology and context, we were able to define the application upgrade strategy together with SAP and the client, dividing activities and responsibilities among the various groups involved. Specifically, we were entrusted with the tasks of defining the upgrade process, “post upgrade tasks”, the execution of System Test activities, and the recovery of data from the original systems to feed the new system.
Thanks to the consolidated partnership with SAP, the complexity of the project, resulting from a high level of integration between the application systems involved, was managed with an excellent level of coordination in the role of PMO. The client was satisfied with the organisation and the results achieved in this first phase of the project. The second part of the project will instead focus on increased reporting (performing, responsive), with the possibility of building customisable dashboards. An additional objective is to improve the overall user experience through the adoption of a User Interface that harmonises with the rest of the SAP modules based on SAP FIORI.
