Vattenfall is one of Europe's largest generators of electricity and largest producer of heat. The Parent Company, Vattenfall AB, is 100%-owned by the Swedish state. Core markets are Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands. In 2010 operations were also conducted in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Poland and the UK.
When Vattenfall went live with its new SAP billing system, the company found a challenge in supporting the critical live system, while at the same time driving the next wave of functionality that could not be delivered as a part of the production go-live. Vattenfall needed to be able to deliver SAP change at pace, whilst managing the delivery risk, as well as supporting dual-track SAP development.
Vattenfall uses ActiveControl to automate its SAP change and release management, for faster and safer SAP delivery. The proven automation tool has been supporting SAP customers running multi-track development since 2003, by simplifying complex SAP landscapes. Vattenfall has full visibility and auditability of the entire SAP change and release management process, and can deliver SAP change at the pace of business requirements.
Out of 35 key manual steps involved in the company's SAP change and release management process, ActiveControl is able to automate over 60% of them. This results in enormous time and cost savings across the thousands of changes being promoted through the company's SAP landscape every quarter.
