Success Story: Old Data, New System: A Smooth Start Thanks to a Successful Carve-out

“Thanks to its solid, competent support, SNP played a major role in making sure that our newly established company could start working without any problems.” Norbert Maier, Senior Vice President, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH

The Challenge

As a result of the merger between the power plant divisions of Mitsubishi and Hitachi, the former Hitachi Power Europe GmbH in Duisburg was renamed Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH and commenced operation on February 1, 2014.

The Solution

Thanks to the SNP Transformation Backbone® software solution, it was easy to implement the various selection criteria of Hitachi Power Europe (HPE) and Hitachi Power Africa (HPA) as well as the different transformation processes for historical and current data associated with this.

The Advantage

  • Data transferred in compliance with auditing standards
  • All of the historical data for the projects were preserved
  • Various transformation processes in a project (selection for HPE based on projects in the document flow, for HPA based on the organizational structure)
  • Opening balance on the go-live date
  • Creation of clearly organized accounting areas in a new, separate SAP system
  • Carve-out done in two go-live steps without interrupting business operations
