Data-driven transformation with SAP Analytics Cloud for Hevert-Arzneimittel

challenge_icon
The challenge

Due to the high turnover and the need for further modernization, Hevert-Arzneimittel planned to restructure its IT landscape, which had grown over the years. To achieve this, the company initiated several projects. In addition to the already planned introduction of SAP S/4HANA, a new analytics solution with extensive forecasting, planning, and reporting features was to be implemented in a future project. A key objective here was to improve sales and production cost planning as well as reduce average stock levels and the capital tied up in these areas. The company also wanted to automatically derive manufacturing costs from sales planning and facilitate the early procurement of preliminary products. In addition, Hevert-Arzneimittel aimed to achieve greater transparency through better reporting and innovative visualization options.

The solution

Together with Nagarro, the project team considered embedded analytics as an integral component of SAP S/4HANA and the SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) as possible solutions. The choice for strategic reporting ultimately fell on SAC as a stand-alone solution. The functionalities were particularly convincing, especially in the areas of predictive analytics and the scalability of the solution. Embedded analytics was also implemented for decision-supporting and operational reporting. After selecting a suitable tool, Hevert-Arzneimittel commissioned Nagarro to analyze the existing solutions and design an alternative mapping in SAC. This included the existing Cubeware reporting, revenue, and cost of sales planning. Historical data was also transferred to the SAP Analytics Cloud for future AI-based projections and planning scenarios.

The result

To speed up the project, Nagarro and Hevert-Arzneimittel split it into two sub-projects: one for reporting and the other for sales and production cost planning in SAC. As a result, the project remained on schedule and could be flexibly expanded in the future to include additional subplans and reports. The project budget was also largely adhered to, and the client's project managers were extremely satisfied. With Nagarro, Hevert-Arzneimittel thus succeeded in introducing the SAP Analytics Cloud for reporting and planning. The company now has the desired, standardized solution for planning, reporting, and monitoring. Error-prone data transfers are now a thing of the past, while the standardized IT landscape simplifies administration, saving time and costs.

Despite many different challenges – in particular the need to hold project meetings remotely because of the coronavirus, and the fact that SAP S/4HANA was being introduced at the same time – we were able to complete the project efficiently and successfully.
