KingfisherKingfisher improves speed and visibility of its SAP releases
Kingfisher is the largest home improvement retailer in Europe and the third-largest in the world. It operates nearly 1,200 stores in 11 countries. Their main retail brands are B&Q, Castorama, Brico Dépôt and Screwfix. They have over 79,000 employees and nearly six million customers in stores every week.
With nearly 1,200 stores in 11 countries across Asia and Europe, the company wanted to improve the flexibility and visibility of its monthly SAP releases.
In order to manage the rapid pace of change across its SAP landscape and given its commitment to a major five year global Business Transformation, Kingfisher needed to reduce the monthly release windows to be able to meet its business requirements. In addition, Kingfisher wanted to improve its SAP development efficiency, by reducing the risk of human errors and manual tasks, and also improve the development quality.
