Customer testimonial

Adopting advanced automation to overcome the challenges of moving supply chain operations to S/4HANA with Basis Technologies

P&G used ActiveControl to support a multi-year SAP S/4HANA migration

Executive Summary

When Procter & Gamble planned its conversion to SAP S/4HANA, harmonization and consolidation of 10 regional supply chain processes became instrumental to its business case.

An integrated approach from Basis Technologies, leaders in DevOps and test automation, and smartShift — with its revolutionary smartShift Intelligent Automation® for SAP transformations — accelerated and de-risked Procter & Gamble’s multi-year transformation program.

The Challenge

P&G was looking to move to S/4HANA as quickly as possible but a large, complex SAP landscape made the project even more challenging than usual. One of the key problems to solve was how to ensure that ECC and S/4HANA systems remained aligned during the period when both were supporting the business.

The Solution

P&G chose ActiveControl to support a massive company-wide project to migrate their supply chain operations from ECC to S/4HANA. ActiveControl’s automated dual maintenance capabilities allowed the company to facilitate the transition while continuing business operations – keeping changes between multiple SAP systems in sync simultaneously across the landscape.

The Result

The advanced automation technology has provided the speed, efficiency and lower costs the company needed, as well as the ability to avoid business disruption during the multi-year project.
