SNP and PwC Chile Expand Partnership to Drive SAP S/4HANA Projects in LATAM
Santiago de Chile, Chile – May 10, 2022 – SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE, a world- leading provider of software solutions for digital transformation processes and automated data migrations, through its Chilean entity, and the leading auditing and consulting firm PwC Chile are further expanding their partnership in Latin America. The partners will collaborate to provide their SAP customers with fast and secure data transformations using SNP’s CrystalBridge® data transformation platform. The focus is on tier 1 companies dealing with industrial products or those in the energy or consumer sectors.
Strengthening our collaborative business model, the PwC-SNP alliance will enable companies with SAP to transform their business by adopting SAP S/4HANA quickly and efficiently with less risk to the business,” says Rodrigo Rivera Hernandez, General Manager of SNP Chile. This is achieved with the SNP BLUEFIELD™ approach – a selective migration of data that allows companies to migrate only the necessary history for each business to the cloud, saving cloud maintenance costs in the process. The core of the transformation is carried out with software and SNP’s widely proven methodologies. “Thanks to our collaboration, this whole transformation process now takes place in a single step,” Hernandez adds.
“With this alliance, we will be able to complement our value offer with new capacities, which will allow us to accelerate our clients’ transformation processes to S/4HANA. Likewise, it will give us the possibility of carrying out selective data migrations, reducing blackout times in the operation of companies to practically 0 days and minimizing the impact on the business. Additionally, we will be able to carry out SAP carve-out and rollout projects with greater speed and efficiency, generating a benefit for our clients, who will see their efforts and risks significantly reduced,” explains Pablo de Uría, Partner of Business Consulting at PwC Chile.
The partnership will initially last for three years and has a strong focus on Chile, a market where PwC can look back on more than a hundred years of experience. “We look forward to further enhancing our services to the country’s most important markets and industries with SNP’s data migration solutions,” adds Pablo de Uría. In the foreseeable future, the partnership will be extended to the entire Latin American market.
