The Challenge

As part of our client’s long-standing relationship with SAP™, they maintain systems on the cutting edge of SAP technologies. To that end, they began a migration of their existing SAP BWHANA™ system to SAP BW/4HANA™. Because the client had a fairly small team, and the migration needed to take place in multiple countries and time zones, the client found that they needed more specialized support than an average Systems Integrator would be able to supply. Oxford Global Resources was sourcing consultants to support their Business Warehouse needs for several years, so they turned to us to help them locate the right talent with the experience needed in the locations required to carry out the migration.

The Solution

We quickly located 11 project-ready consultants with experience in SAP and the client’s industry to assist with the migration. Not only did these consultants have experience working with the necessary technologies, but they had also worked together in the past — resulting in a team that understood each other’s working dynamics and integrated seamlessly into the client’s culture. This collaborative environment allowed the consultants to quickly begin delivering results, despite various location and time zone challenges. Consultants were provided across Europe, Switzerland, and Malaysia.

The Oxford team provided services in the following areas:

  • Market reach, specializing in customer master and CO-PA data
  • Consolidation of master and transactional data from S/4HANA, SAP Business ByDesign, and Oracle™ to BW/4HANA
  • Development of new data flows and reports
  • BW/4HANA modeling and development
  • Integration of BW/4HANA reporting tool to legacy SalesForce™ system
  • Prepare extracted data for reporting in BW/4HANA using SAP Analytics Cloud and SalesForce
