Challenge

Hillarys, one of the UK’s premier providers of blinds, curtains, shutters and carpets, was recently faced with the challenge of an update to its SAP system, which supports multiple locations, a thousand remote sales devices, and a market-leading online business.

If done with the resources actually used, the project would have taken three years, but by working with Panaya’s CloudQualityTM Suite, Hillarys completed the process in less than six months.

Solution

By using Panaya to ensure effective planning and execution, Hillarys could estimate time, effort and risk to better understand the business case and determine project cost.

Results

Hillarys migrated its SAP Business Suite to S/4HANA (ECC, CRM & BW) and upgraded ECC5 to readiness for S/4HANA, while managing the effects of the changes on the other aspects of SAP (SMP, PI). Despite the scope of the project, it was essential to minimize downtime.
