Transparency over global SAP implementation
Large scale ERP implementation projects are risky and complex. Dada Enterprises developed the Cutover plan methodology and Microsoft Project Server based toolset. By integrating schedules with SAB Miller’s e-mail system key resources were communicated in real-time when key cutover tasks needed to be done and provided immediate feedback on status, risks / issues and further resource requirements. In turn senior management were provided real-time status dashboards against the plan during regular status meetings.
SAB Miller needed a SOX compliant solution to manage and track the transition from legacy systems, processes, procedures and assurance on data migration status.
SAB Miller, an international beer manufacturer and distributor that operates in more than 80 countries, wanted to gain efficiencies by shifting from regional based processes, systems, and vendors to begin planning, developing, and operating on a global basis. A crucial part of all SAP project cycles is moving data from live production systems into development and test environments.
