GHCL wanted to accelerate growth and modernize its enterprise IT landscape to stay competitive in the evolving digital business world. The company wanted to invest for futuristic and scalable digital platform to initiate enterprise transformation, through process digitization, analytics, automation and cloud product suites with seamless integration across its landscape.
A single-step SAP S/4HANA conversion and an advisory-led business process transformation.
To convert GHCL’s aging SAP systems while minimizing the risk and ensuring zero disruption of existing business processes, TCS proposed a brownfield approach for SAP S/4HANA adoption, leveraging TCS’ SAP S/4HANA Conversion Factory and advisory-led business process transformation.
TCS evaluated GHCL’s key drivers, processes and landscape during an initial assessment and proposed a phased roadmap to begin SAP S/4HANA-led transformation. In the first phase, TCS recommended a single-step SAP S/4HANA conversion, optimizing system performance and laying a foundation for subsequent phase of process improvement. In the second phase, TCS suggested transformation of GHCL’s core business processes with HANA-enabled latest business solutions -- Embedded Transportation Management and Embedded Business Planning. With analytics on a mobility platform, GHCL users were able to get business information on-the-go through SAP Fiori applications.
