A Carve-Out Project With SAP Business ByDesign for Evonik Industries

As a global corporation, Evonik Industries AG (annual turnover in 2013 around 12.7 billion Euros), must often take many factors into account when finding solutions which can be deployed rapidly but in a sustainable manner. Recently Evonik successfully undertook a carve-out project to change over the IT systems at one of its US subsidiaries in in just five weeks.

The world-renowned SAP partner, itelligence AG played a key role in this success. They recommended the use of the SAP cloud solution SAP Business ByDesign, and worked together with Evonik to bring the project to a very successful conclusion.

Jürgen Hoffmann, Global IT & Processes Evonik Industries AG says: “This was the first time we have used an SAP cloud solution but it will not be the last. Through the SAP Business ByDesign solution, we were able to hand over one of our shops to the new owners complete with modern, fully functional ERP software, which was deployed in no time at all. In this case, the knowledge and experience offered by itelligence were critical to the success of this project. ”

Within five weeks, the itelligence consultants conducted SAP Business ByDesign, including SAP Financial (FIN), Human Capital Management (HCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) at a subsidiary of Evonik in the US, which works in the area of foam production and has approximately 50 employees.

Wolfgang Kröner, Vice President, Global Head of SAP Cloud Solutions says: “Working in partnership with Evonik Industries, we were able to demonstrate the value of a cloud-based ERP system as a continuously-functioning IT solution. This is particularly evident as part of a global M&A strategy or a corporate spin-off (carve-out).”
