Torres is a 145 year old Spanish family owned wine growing company. The company has the most extensive vineyards in the Denomination of Origin of Penedès and is the largest winery in Spain. Torres wines are sold in more than 150 countries, with a yearly turnover of over 240 million euros.
Torres’ SAP system was on EHP3. Their SAP was quickly becoming obsolete and was taking up too much time for the company’s SAP application team. It was time for Torres to perform an EHP upgrade.
Red Wine, Meet ERP Automation!
The Spanish winery turned to Panaya to accelerate and add a layer of automation to their SAP EHP upgrade. IT Manager at Torres, Pere Figueras, led a team of 4 consultants, 2 programmer analysts and 1 basis administrator to work on the project.
Mr. Figueras and his team hit the jackpot with a superb SAP EHP upgrade. The team planned on a 6 month EHP upgrade and completed it in only 3 months. How?
Thanks to Panaya CloudQuality Suite™, Pere Figueras and his SAP team were able to focus on the most critical issues. One of the keys to faster-than-expected SAP upgrades is to be able to focus on the high impact transactions and tasks before the upgrade, and work on the low impact tasks after the go-live.
The Bottom Line
How do you measure a successful SAP EHP upgrade?
- First – zero critical post go-live failures
- Finishing the EHP upgrade on time or even ahead of time
- Minimal impact to the business
Torres can answer yes to all 3 of these standards.
