Jenoptik Relies on SNP for SAP S/4HANA Transformation
Heidelberg, December 6, 2021 – SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE, a world-leading provider of software solutions for digital transformation processes and automated data migration in the SAP environment, has won the contract to migrate Jenoptik’s main SAP ERP system to SAP S/4HANA. Jenoptik opted for the data transformation platform CrystalBridge® due to its highly automated solutions for all IT and business transformations, including cloud migrations. The chosen selective data migration approach from SNP (BLUEFIELD™) ensures a successful system conversion for the technology group while providing the associated added value. The contract between SNP and Jenoptik has a term of 12 months.
In the past, Jenoptik had already made use of SNP’s software and consulting for various migration projects from SAP ERP to SAP ERP and is now placing its trust in the transformation specialist for the move to SAP S/4HANA.
Dr. Christian Königsdörffer, Program Manager for Global Business Excellence at Jenoptik:
SNP’s product and consulting services have supported us successfully through SAP projects before. For the currently running complex SAP S/4HANA project, we were impressed by the selective data migration approach. The BLUEFIELD approach is the optimal way for us to safely carry out the S/4 conversion to a so-called S/4 plateau system within the planned time because we want to utilize the new S/4 system quickly. The BLUEFIELD approach already enables us to implement organizational changes and selected innovations in this first step. Afterwards, there will be a major innovation phase to take full advantage of S/4HANA’s capabilities.”
Klaus Hammerbacher, Senior Account Manager at SNP, adds:
Jenoptik is a long-standing customer, and we’re delighted with the trust they’ve placed in us. The fact that Jenoptik opted for CrystalBridge and our selective data migration approach to ensure the project’s success validates our work and makes us a bit proud. We know the exact needs and requirements of the customer. Our highly automated solutions are precisely geared towards such projects and operate there in a high-performance and secure manner. Jenoptik will be able to implement the move to SAP S/4HANA with us as planned.”
