The Lubrizol Corporation, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is a technology-driven global company. It combines complex speciality chemicals to optimize the quality, performance and value of its customers' products while reducing its environmental impact. Head-quartered in Ohio, the company has over 7,000 employees and sell to more than 100 countries worldwide.
Lubrizol's manual SAP change control process was consuming vast amounts of the Basis team's time - limiting the company's ability to be proactive on more strategic activity.
In order to improve the quality of its SAP change and release process and make better use of its Basis resources, Lubrizol uses ActiveControl - the software solution that automates over 70% of manual processes in the SAP change control process.
Due to a number of unique process requirements, Lubrizol needed a SAP change control tool that would work with its current processes. ActiveControl was the only solution flexible enough to slot into the existing systems.
With ActiveControl, Lubrizol's SAP transport delivery is fully automated and changes are routed through a change workflow without manual intervention - eliminating reliance on the Basis team. Testing is carried out right from the start in the development (ShiftLeft), increasing the quality of the changes. The benefits are higher-quality development that doesn't break the system and reduced cost to the business.
