Rapid SAP S/4HANA Deployment: Success Story of a Midmarket Chemical Business

SAP S4HANA Deployment Success Story of a Midmarket Chemical Business

Phase 1 – Live in 100 days

SELECCIÓN Consulting recently completed a successful SAP S/4HANA implementation for a midmarket chemical company. This project, driven by the divestiture of a specialty chemicals manufacturing plant and its acquisition by a private equity firm, required a rapid and efficient transition. Despite significant challenges, including a lack of a Transition Service Agreement and limited access to the seller’s systems, our team achieved Phase 1 go-live in just 100 days. By leveraging the SAP Activate Methodology and robust AWS infrastructure, SELECCIÓN Consulting ensured a seamless migration and positioned the new entity for continued success.

Project Background & Objectives:

  • Divestiture of a specialty chemicals manufacturing plant by a large chemical company.
  • Divesting company running their entire business on SAP ECC 6.0 and other applications.
  • Acquisition of this plant by a private equity company.
  • The private equity company had to build all the applications necessary to run the business operations of the acquired plant.

Key Challenges:

  • No Transition Service Agreement (TSA) between the buyer and seller, resulting in a drop-dead date to migrate the business processes from the buyer to the seller.
  • Very limited staff with the business and systems knowledge transitioning to the new company.
  • Very limited access to the selling company’s SAP and other systems.

The Solution:

  • Agile Implementation using SAP Activate Methodology of S4HANA 2020.
  • AWS as Infrastructure Provider for faster, robust deployment of SAP Solutions.
  • SAC as Analytical Platform for Reporting.
  • CPI as Middleware for Integration of 3PL.

Key Benefits:

  • Ready for Business as Usual for New Entity on S4HANA 2020 Best practices (RTR, PTP, PTM, OTC).
  • Phase 1 Go-live within 4 months, followed by Hyper-care and other Phases roll-out.
  • 40% Savings on Implementation using Best Practice.
  • 90x In-Memory Database for faster reporting.
  • 50% User Productivity increase by FIORI Apps.
