Tata AutoComp Systems wanted to deploy a single, digital-first ERP platform across geographies
The automotive components and aggregates manufacturer was running its critical business processes on SAP ERP Central Component (ECC), deployed 12 years ago. It also needed to replace aging hardware. The company consisted of 16 business units across India, China, U.S., Mexico and Sweden after a series of acquisitions. Tata AutoComp Systems wanted to deploy a cost-effective, robust digital platform for all its business units that would help them adapt to change quickly, drive process standardization, manage data effectively, and enable greater visibility and superior decision support.
Driving ERP transformation with SAP S/4HANA for automotive industry
TCS carried out in-depth due diligence to help the company map digital transformation opportunities with strategic business objectives. We spearheaded discussions with key stakeholders at Tata AutoComp Systems to narrow-down on the platform of choice for the ERP overhaul. The teams decided in favor of a single-step conversion to SAP S/4HANA and migration to TCS cloud infrastructure with a pay-per-use service model.
Our team of SAP S/4HANA consultants leveraged their deep domain knowledge and industry-leading best practices, tools, and templates to execute SAP S/4HANA conversion for India and China business units and helped in going live on SAP S/4HANA. We met the client’s aspirational timeline and the newly acquired businesses could be rolled on the SAP S/4HANA platform. By ensuring the conversion and migration is carried out in a single downtime window, we delivered exceptional business continuity.
TCS used its proprietary industrialized model to provide flexibility for ramp-up and ramp-down. A team of experienced SAP and cloud consultants supported the client throughout the SAP S/4HANA transformation journey.
