Efficiency through Corporate Reorganization
Continuous Add-ons or new system integration, reorganizing business processes, as well as carve-outs and international expansions can highly fragment the ERP landscape. This often leads to inefficient and poorly performing ERP systems with significant consequences for the entire business. In order to cut IT-costs, all business applications should be put under the microscope. During a migration, individually customized structures, business objects, and processes must be appropriately prepared in a standard application and incorporated into the new ERP system’s structure.
"Our OneP project called for the extensive preparation of source data and a significant amount of time and energy to coordinate the project’s worldwide implementation. With SNP Transformation Backbone, we were able to work in a rules-based manner, and as such, minimize the manual programming workload."
Jürgen Poethke, Project manager for data migration, Energy Sector, Siemens AG
The Painless Roadmap to SAP New General Ledger
A trouble-free transition to the new general ledger is possible with SNP Transformation Backbone. The software and a precisely coordinated approach from the IT and other departments make it possible to introduce the new general ledger during the year independent of the preparation of monthly or annual financial statements. The software-based approach with certified templates guarantees the SAP system’s successful transition.
ThyssenKrupp’s Materials Services business area faced the challenge of integrating SAP’s new general ledger into several ERP systems distributed across the globe and harmonizing various reporting structures across the group. Prior to the project, reporting was geared to classic company codes, which resulted in a complex, inflexible reporting system. The goal of the ERP transformation was primarily to be able to fulfill group-wide requirements across the globe at all locations, to simplify processes, to make solid, group-wide reporting possible, and to more quickly prepare financial statements.
Profit Center Structures for Classical and NewGL
The new solution module for the SNP Transformation Backbone standard platform enables instant changes to be made to profit center structures for the classical and new general ledger (NewGL). The need for changes of this kind can be triggered, for example, by changes in organizational structures after the hive-off of business divisions, or new reporting standards that stipulate different allocations. The restructuring of profit centers also gives rise to changes in the posting of account assignment objects, e.g. projects, orders, materials, etc. This software solution means that the objects concerned are automatically reassigned and the stocks reposted. All the changes are documented and traceable. The SNP Profit Center Reorganization solution makes it possible for the assignment to profit centers within SAP ERP systems to be restructured using a partially automated process. It supports the renaming, splitting and also the consolidation of profit centers.
