Overview of the Client

Business Challenges and Objectives

  • The current installation of Business Planning and Consolidations (BPC) (from version 7.5 to 10.1) was not meeting expectations, leading to dissatisfaction.
  • The client wanted to ensure that any changes made would result in desired efficiency improvements before proceeding with the implementation.
  • A comparison between implementing HANA and not implementing HANA is required to evaluate the potential performance boost.
  • This comparison can be facilitated through TekLink’s “Value Added Upgrade” process, which helps assess the impact of HANA on performance.

The Solution

  • The client did not have the IT infrastructure to upgrade their Business Planning and Consolidations (BPC) system.
  • TekLink Innovation Labs created three landscapes to showcase BPC performance in various scenarios.
  • The TekLink team used their expertise in BPC/BW, HANA, and Cloud Technologies to deliver the “Value Added Upgrade.”
  • The team analyzed the client’s business processes and existing BPC configuration to create a complex upgrade.
  • The team focused on optimizing the utilization of new features and functions in the upgraded version.
  • The goal was to build an optimized system that performs better and improves user experience.
  • The Innovation Labs’ setups enabled the client to make an informed decision based on observed results.

Business Outcomes and Benefits
