First SAP S/4HANA Transformation Launch by Inventia Pharma in India With SNP BLUEFIELD™Approach

Heidelberg, December 17, 2019 – SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE, a leading global provider of SAP® landscape transformation solutions, has been selected by Inventia Healthcare Limited, India for the implementation of its SAP® S/4HANA project. This is the first next generation enterprise conversion in India utilizing SNP BLUEFIELD™, enabling an automated transformation to the SAP® S/4HANA digital core.

Inventia’s strategy is to maintain high agility in the competitive pharmaceutical industry by making rapid changes in its technology landscape, while keeping data secure and processes compliant. The company was exploring a fast upgrade of its existing on-premise SAP ERP 6.0 EhP7 to S/4HANA 1909 in the AWS Cloud platform.

In an official statement, Ms. Rajat Mittal Shah, Director of Information Technology at Inventia Healthcare, said, “We are pleased to engage SNP and their BLUEFIELD™ approach powered by CrystalBridge® as the key partner in our digital transformation strategy to move to SAP® S/4HANA in less than six months to achieve Inventia’s business goals, leading the pharmaceutical industry in the region.”

From a technical perspective, Mr. Mukund KS, General Manager of IT, explained, “We require a highly automated selective data migration approach that reduces the overall project effort, timescales and risks. The key selection criterion for BLUEFIELD™ was the flexibility to pick the best data and processes to transform in order to get the value of S/4HANA right away. With its BLUEFIELD™ approach, SNP could execute this project because of its decades of success with business transformations and proven ability to deliver multiple projects in a single step within just a few months with minimal business downtime, cost and risk.”

“In the S/4HANA preparation phase, we could scan and analyze the source landscape, plan and simulate the configuration of the desired target landscape, and compare different transformation scenarios using CrystalBridge® – SNP’s automated end-to-end business transformation platform – for an accurate outcome,” Mr. Mukund KS added.

Dr. Oswin Hartung, Managing Director at SNP Transformations SEA Pte. Ltd., said, “We are excited about this first S/4HANA BLUEFIELD™ breakthrough project with Inventia in the promising Indian market. The tasks ahead of us involve selective data migration to the new SAP S/4HANA target system, time slicing the data modules, organizational entities and aligning interfaces. We will ensure that all application functionality is converted to the latest S/4 release and remove the risk of problems caused by master and transaction data that sometimes cannot be converted. The market is convinced that an automated software approach like BLUEFIELD™ is imperative to ensure maximum speed, accuracy and efficiency for complex data migrations in a permanently changing world.”
