The Grass is Greener for Evergreen with SAP S/4HANA and NTT DATA Business Solutions

About the Project

Evergreen was formed out of the divestment of Scotts Miracle-Gro's non-US business. The new company had a critical timeline linked to the Transition Service Agreement of just 15 months to move off the parent SAP platform and implement their own business systems, infrastructure and support service. The legacy systems previously operated by Evergreen included a heavily customised 20 year old SAP ECC system plus 76 supporting applications. Evergreen needed a partner who would steer them accurately on their journey with pragmatic drive and understanding of their capability and timeline. NTT DATA Business Solutions started working with the new owners and external advisors in early 2017 and provided initial advice and guidance on the potential business systems transformation and migration options. NTT DATA Business Solutions implemented SAP S/4HANA to 7 countries who went live in only 15 months.


SAP S/4HANA - A Platform for Innovation

SAP S/4HANA has provided the foundations for building an intelligent enterprise and has standardised business processes on a global basis with the capability to support future acquisitions in line with the organisations growth aspirations. Additionally, Evergreen is benefiting from real-data insight into performance with automated tasks, digitised finance processes and efficient product lifecycle management. With back-office processes optimised and integrated, Evergreen has implemented front-office improvements with NTT DATA Business Solutions (Weaveability) designing a B2B eCommerce website for global rollout.
