Kampmann Delivers a Breath of Fresh Air

With an entrepreneurial vision and a desire for innovation, Kampmann has become one of the leading companies in the HVAC industry, offering customers unique expertise in complex air conditioning systems. The family company operates internationally and is a market leader in various segments. It pursues a single aim: creating a climate to feel comfortable in by means of decentralized, unobtrusive air conditioning units. Over 1,000 employees work towards this aim, ensuring a good climate, innovation, sustainability, and close cooperation with customers and partners. To breathe fresh air into its IT as well, Kampmann turned to IT provider NTT DATA Business Solutions from Bielefeld. A longstanding
partner who is familiar with the company’s requirements and goals.


Kampmann Opts for a SAP S/4HANA Conversion on Azure

For SAP users, the SAP S/4HANA conversion is a big subject that they have to deal with. But with SAP S/4HANA on Azure, Kampmann is now benefiting from the innovative possibilities of both technologies. The IT system is enriched with services provided by Microsoft while simultaneously having access to the latest functionalities of the new SAP Business Suite. With SAP on Azure, Kampmann is enjoying greater flexibility in its IT landscape and can push ahead with the digital transformation in the company. The integration of Microsoft and SAP facilitates the efficient migration of key IT processes into the cloud. This benefits Kampmann not only through an enhanced analytical capability but also through the high levels of security and reliability of Azure for its SAP systems. With an infrastructure availability of up to 99.99%, Kampmann can be sure that its SAP system in Azure is accessible at any time, from anywhere.


The Merging of Two Worlds: SAP and Microsoft

The migration to Azure offers Kampmann new innovative possibilities, such as linking IoT devices directly to the SAP system. This enables its staff to work more productively and supports further growth. The continuous development of cloud services in the Azure environment also provides access to cutting-edge technologies. By using the Microsoft Azure cloud rather than operating via a data center, Kampmann is realizing significant cost savings, which ensures good investment security. As a certified Microsoft Partner, NTT DATA Business Solutions also provides the appropriate services for the development, operation, and management of the SAP applications in the Azure cloud environment – acting as a one-stop shop. Kampmann thus benefits from the continual further development of both business processes and applications.


Mission Accomplished

Following the successful completion of the conversion, Kampmann went straight into the optimization phase. Here, the focus is on process optimization, utilizing the latest SAP S/4HANA features. NTT DATA Business Solutions continues to provide support to Kampmann on this journey. The company benefits from years of SAP S/4HANA expertise, which was further honed with respect to the processes used by Kampmann during the joint conversion project. Drawing on years of experience in the utilization of standardized tools and methodologies, the two partners succeeded in jointly realizing the project on time and in budget.
