ORBIS and SNP bundle competencies for rapid switch to SAP S/4HANA

Logo SNP Group

The internationally active software and business consulting company ORBIS AG from Saarbrücken and SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE from Heidelberg have agreed to cooperate. The companies intend to pool their expertise in the area of SAP S/4HANA in the future and enable SAP user companies from the manufacturing sector to switch to the new ERP software suite quickly and at low risk using the innovative SNP BLUEFIELD™ method. This is intended to encourage companies to make the switch as soon as possible so that they can benefit from the advantages of SAP S/4HANA technology in terms of the digitalization of business processes at an early stage - a factor that is relevant for competition.

ORBIS AG's partnership with SNP, the world's leading provider of automated data migrations and digital business transformations, enables it to support existing customers, as well as new customers, even more efficiently in implementing their digital transformation agenda to SAP S/4HANA. The Saarbrücken-based IT service provider supports customers as a trusted advisor with a high level of consulting and process knowledge as well as in-depth expertise in SAP applications. Together, a "big picture" of the future process and system landscape is developed, and a roadmap is created and implemented on this basis. This is where SNP's cloud-based BLUEFIELD™ method comes into play. It can be used to automate the changeover to SAP S/4HANA, making it significantly faster and more streamlined compared to a new implementation (greenfield approach) or system conversion (brownfield approach). Since functions and data are migrated and updated in a single go-live project and the time-consuming redesign of existing SAP systems is eliminated, this significantly reduces the complexity in SAP transformation projects.

„With the synergies resulting from the partnership with SNP, customers from the manufacturing industry benefit from our consulting and process expertise in the SAP environment when migrating to SAP S/4HANA, optimally complemented by the BLUEFIELD™ method with its highly automated processes, which drastically shortens project runtimes. This is real added value, as is the fact that we offer customers all services from a single source and thus the best possible support,“ explains André Bohe, Head of the SAP S/4HANA Business Center at ORBIS AG.
