Prompt, cost-efficient and downtime-free upgrade of SAP systems for a pharma major
Headquartered in the United States, the client a worldwide pioneer in pharmaceutical and biologics research and development
After an acquisition by a European pharma major, the client was looking to consolidate their operations and upgrade their IT landscape for optimal collaboration across continents
The client quickly realized that IT merger was not a simple integration, and therefore hit challenges with time, budget and internal resources. They also realized that their current system was rapidly approaching obsolescence, which would further bring in an additional burden of cost, division-specific maintenance and support.
After performing a detailed system assessment of the client’s existing SAP landscape, YASH consultants saw the need to synchronize both systems before the migration took place. Leveraging YASH’s SAP CoE (Center of Excellence), YASH proposed the SAP ERP technical upgrade with Parallel Landscape Approach to keep downtime to a minimal. We also utilized our CoEs and proprietary accelerators so that the challenge of time crunch could be addressed.
The solutions implemented not only helped us to execute the task within a short time, but also with significant cost savings. The team ensured a successful SAP upgrade was executed within 12 weeks and spanned the US and Canada operations. The client also benefited from minimal system downtown, new and enhanced functionalities offered by the new SAP ERP, as well as an improved master data management system.
