For businesses with a desire to extend their reach internationally, an acquisition strategy has become a tried-and-true approach to growth. Speed to market. Speed to positioning. Speed to competitive mass. Speed to viability. These are the capabilities businesses want. However, there is one byproduct IT leaders can do without – increasing complexity.
This was especially the case for Florida Crystals Corporation, a leading domestic sugar producer and North America’s first fully integrated cane sugar company. During the SAPPHIRE NOW session “Innovate and Simplify IT with One Support Experience,” Gary Mitchell, vice president of IT operations at Florida Crystals Corporation, detailed how his organization leveraged SAP Enterprise Support services to overcome increasing complexity brought on by multiple acquisitions over the last 17 years.
Mitchell acknowledged, “Our corporate acquisition strategy impacted us greatly – new statutory and regulatory requirements, foreign currency, and international banking processes and laws. Needless to say, it took us to an area of increased complexity. From our perspective, SAP Enterprise Support offered both the tools and processes to help us on our journey.”
