Israel Electric Corporation, the only utility company in Israel with 2.5 million+ customers, has a diverse set of operations – from construction to grid management to customer relations. In order to properly manage these operations, they realized they needed to improve their project management IT systems. To do so, they quickly implemented a packaged IT solution that met approximately 70% of their needs: SAP Portfolio and Project Management rapid-deployment solution, while allowing unique needs to be covered by extensions to the rapid-deployment solution delivered by their partner.
What happened next with the remaining 30% is very interesting – Israel Electric realized that when they began to finish the 30% delta, they actually needed to implement different processes for their custom needs. Why? Because after using SAP Portfolio and Project Management rapid-deployment solution for 6 months, seeing the benefits and how it changed how they did business, they discovered that what they initially planned was different from what they currently needed. So by the end of their SAP rapid-deployment implementation, their total 100% was much better than it would have been with a traditional implementation.
