Successful SAP Ariba Catalog implementation at thyssenkrupp
Implementation of SAP Ariba Catalog at thyssenkrupp - thanks to apsolut’s expert knowledge
thyssenkrupp AG, headquartered in Essen, Germany, is a modern industrial corporation operating under the slogan “engineering. tomorrow. together.” It is a leading global industry and technology group. thyssenkrupp with an annual revenue of 39 billion Euros, is divided into 670 subsidiaries with 156,000 employees worldwide.
thyssenkrupp is one of the first customers for which the apsolut Group has successfully implemented the SAP Ariba catalog functions, including enrichment, cleansing functions and BMEcat Load. From April 2016 to October 2016, the complex mass migration of the POET catalogue data to the Ariba Catalog was achieved with the assistance of our highly skilled apsolut team in India. apsolut then provided support throughout the first operating phase with the development of an internal content management team and in the optimisation of content management processes. The transfer was successfully completed in January 2017. A great challenge was not only the quantity of catalogues and articles, but also the complex display concept and the functionalities of the Ariba Catalog, which are still under development. Within a tight timeframe, apsolut succeeded in migrating more than 300 catalogues and six million items from the POET catalogue to the SAP Ariba Catalog.
Through its expertise, apsolut successfully completed the project and ensured rollout to all subsidiaries. “It was a great collaboration! Our team and apsolut's team put extraordinary effort into the entire project period. apsolut has been committed to us during every project phase and stood by us with their expertise,” said Doris Wedig, Project Manager at thyssenkrupp Business Services GmbH, summing up her satisfaction with the project.
