Success Story: Carve-out, S/4 Migration and Cloud Move in a Single Step Minimizes Business Disruption for BSW Timber

“With the complex challenge of an SAP data carve-out, a project integration and an S/4HANA transformation, we engaged Centiq and SNP to complete this project with minimal business disruption and downtime.”

David Robinson, Head of IT, BSW Group

The Challenge

Following the sale of the Building and Supply Solutions division of SCA Wood UK to BSW Timber, there was a requirement to carve-out the divested entities and associated data from SCA’s global SAP ECC system into a new dedicated SAP system for BSW on Azure Cloud.

The Solution

SNP was responsible for planning and setting up the infrastructure as well as the project basis activities and took over the carve-out as well as the migration to S/4HANA on Azure. The project was carried out in collaboration with Centiq.

The Advantage

  • Single project to both carve out the relevant data and move to S/4HANA on Azure
  • SNP approach of ECC to S/4HANA allowed the project to be delivered in good time prior to the end of the Transitional Service Agreement (TSA).
