Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Implementation and ERP Interface Configuration
In order to address the complexity and mitigate the risks inherent in any large-scale ERP implementation, Dada Enterprises provided effective support to manage the deployment. Through authoring and presenting system Blue Prints we explained the to-be processes, organisation and tool-sets. Our interim capability structured the governance model to manage the ERP transition, post-implementation support model, data migration and testing activities.
Dada Enterprises set up the right programme management approach, ERP integration interfaces and processes to turn strategy into system implementations.
Acergy (now part of Subsea 7 following a merger) initiated a programme to improve their project controls capability across the whole of their 12,000 people company. This lead to the global and multi-phase rollout of SAP to move from region and country based processes to optimised ways of working. Following on from Acergy’s merger with Subsea 7 this required that the existing ERP tool set, already being utilised across Subsea 7, be integrated into the change programme.
