SAP Basis Team Lead | Kingspan
Kingspan is the global leader in high performance insulation and building envelopes and operates more than 100 manufacturing facilities in over 70 countries. They are a long-standing user of SAP and chose to do a greenfield S/4HANA implementation for one of their local SAP landscapes with the goal of delivering value to customers faster. Part of the motivation for adopting S/4HANA early was to be able to apply update packs and enable new features more quickly.
The Solution: ActiveControl
Kingspan selected ActiveControl as their SAP DevOps automation platform to support their business objectives for S/4HANA, mainly to deliver BAU (business as usual) changes and S/4HANA update packs quickly without disrupting production systems. ActiveControl has automated a significant amount of their change and release management workflows and given them the flexibility to employ more development environments for more efficient change management.
