Heidelberg | Singapore | Lahore, October 14, 2020 - Abacus Consulting, a leading business transformation firm, has today announced a strategic partnership agreement with SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE (SNP Group), a global leader in data transformation, to simplify the complex digital transformation of data and processes. Together, they aim to help clients to migrate their SAP application workloads to SAP® S/4HANA and cloud environments.
SNP offers an automated transformation path using its proprietary BLUEFIELD™ approach powered by the CrystalBridge® software platform, allowing greater speed, accuracy and ease in dealing with SAP migrations. Whilst Greenfield and Brownfield approaches are familiar to many SAP practitioners and customers, the innovative BLUEFIELD™ methodology flexibly combines the advantages of both approaches to deliver greater success for clients when it comes to speed and agility.
With BLUEFIELD™, customers can convert at record speed and at any time regardless of the financial year-end, retain full historical data, achieve transformation without re-implementation, rationalize computing resource consumption, and experience minimal disruption. SNP’s ability to migrate and upgrade features in a single go-live project allows organizations to merge, split, upgrade and harmonize SAP data with a near-zero downtime option. This approach is a new, faster pathway to business-critical projects like S/4HANA, leveraging the power of software automation together with unparalleled visibility and analytics.
As a leading system integrator in Pakistan and the MENA region, Abacus has successfully completed over 1,200 deployments of SAP platforms for clients. With this partnership, Abacus aims to help its clients to modernize their application workloads smoothly and thereby to help them leverage the advantages of digital platforms of the future.
Abbas Khan, Managing Director, Abacus, said, “As a technology provider focused on business transformation, our partnership with SNP helps us bring their deep know-how in SAP data transformation to our customers. We’re excited about helping our customers upgrade to S/4HANA efficiently whilst minimizing the associated risks.”
In an official announcement, Gerald Faust, Managing Director & CEO, JAPAC, SNP Transformations SEA Pte Ltd., commented, “We are enthused about SNP’s foray into the emerging markets and the MENA region with Abacus combined with our BLUEFIELD™ approach powered by CrystalBridge®. BLUEFIELD™, an essence of over 26 years of experience with 12,500 successful transformation projects, provides a level of insight and control of a digital transformation that cannot be achieved with traditional methodologies. It is trusted by the world's leading companies to automate and accelerate their SAP transformation journey. Our alliance will be delivering maximum value to consumers and organizations in the region based on software-centric, highly automated solutions – ensuring speed and business agility.”
