HANA Accelerator: High-Tech Manufacturing Company

Written by

Smartsoft successfully upgraded SAP 4.6 C systems to ECC 6.0 in a complex landscape and implemented SAP HANA accelerator for an Atlanta based engineering conglomerate.

The upgrade effort was significant involving several table modifications, many third party objects, numerous RFCs, web interfaces and process improvements in MM, WM, SD, FI/CO, PS, CS, HR modules. A pilot run for COPA HANA accelerator produced significant performance improvements in key COPA reports and other reports as much.



Smartsoft helped a global pharmaceutical company with presence in over 40 countries to leverage their investments in Ariba and SAP by integrating the procurement processes in Ariba with account validation in ECC and SRM 7.0. Ariba supplier network has also been enabled and plans to integrate it with ECC are afoot. We are also evaluating tools for global procurement standardization. The long term association with the client indicates their trust in Smartsoft capabilities and quality of services.
