The Grass is Greener for Evergreen with SAP S/4HANA
SAP S4hana implementation project was done by NTT DATA Business Solutions in only 15 months and rolled out in 7 countries. Evergreen Garden Care had a critical timeline linked to the Transition Service Agreement 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.
A Platform for Innovation
S4hana implementation 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 organisation’s 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.
