Success Story: Enabling Strategic Growth through Acquisitions

“SNP SE not only brought the expertise of how to go through a data conversion, but also brought the tool that enabled us to avoid using our own time-consuming custom program- ming to execute the process.” Kimberly Griffiths, Senior Vice President – Global Technology Programs, Jones Lang LaSalle

The Challenge

In 2010, JLL was presented with a unique opportunity to acquire a portfolio of clients from a competitor that was downsizing. In this case the new portfolio’s historical data was necessary for JLL to provide uninterrupted service to the new clients and to complete transactions already in progress.

The Solution

SNP utilized its SNP Transformation Backbone® to gather and store the transformation rules and then to migrate the data into JLL’s JD Edwards ERP system.

The Advantage

  • Perform historical and master data ERP mergers in months rather than years with reduced risk and increased transparency
  • All financial data for JLL and its acquired companies integrated into one ERP system
  • Maintain acccurate financial transaction history
  • Utilize the SNP Transformation Backbone, a proven automated data transformation system and methodology used in more than 2000 data transformations
