#S4HANA customer series: How SAP accompanies a semiconductor company from Asia on its path to SAP S/4 HANA
SAP S/4HANA helps customers run simple in a digital and complex world. Many global companies have adopted SAP S/4HANA to become a Live business and a model digital enterprise. In this series we will show the value S/4HANA can bring with the help of example businesses who already took the road to SAP S/4HANA.
Since the launch of SAP S/4HANA, the momentum around it has grown as customers and industry leaders have recognized the unique advantages of having a digital core to power the digital transformation that businesses crave. Based on a single source of information, enterprises can now move beyond traditional transactions and drive end-to-end digitized processes. A leading semiconductor company in Asia with a considerable revenue turnover, embarked on SAP S/4HANA journey to reconstruct its core business processes and increase its overall productivity. The company aimed for a strong innovation agenda in order to deliver better customer service.
The new implementation of SAP S/4HANA for this customer covered these areas:
- Sales and Distribution (SD)
- Foreign Trade (Import – Export)
- Production Planning (PP)
- Quality Management (QM)
- Material Management (MM)
- Finance (FI)
- Controlling (CO)
- Human Resources (HR)
Significant added business value
This case also had several additional applications, which needed to be connected to the SAP S/4HANA System. There was a custom specific database, a PLM system from another company and a dashboard especially for management reporting, among others. With this we have a good example for the integration possibilities you are able to realize with SAP S/4HANA.
In joint collaboration SAP and its customer worked closely together in order to make sure, the project would run smoothly and assure a great go live. With the help of the SAP Customer Care, Regional Implementation group and implementation partner a trusted relationship could be built right from the start. There are currently more than 1200 active SAP S/4HANA customer projects that are collaborating with SAP Customer Care and/or the Regional Implementation group. More than 270 customers already went live to date with the support of SAP.
In the case of the semiconductor company from Asia, two onsite visits and several knowledge transfer sessions, it was possible to gather all necessary information within a short period of time. This gave the project a good head start in realizing a fast go live. Both sides worked closely together throughout the project and made the transition to SAP S/4HANA therefore very smooth and easy.
The SAP S/4HANA journey thus helped the company to run simple, take faster business decision and achieve a higher customer satisfaction.
This is only one of many examples that prove SAP S/4HANA delivers the value needed to lead your business through the Digital Transformation. Find more Success Stories here and stay tuned for more parts of this #S4HANA customer series.
