Why use smartShift’s SAP Code Consolidation & Carve-Out service?
The success of a merger or acquisition of business units depends on timely IT integration. Infrastructure, data and processes must be brought together and adapted to the new business model as effectively as possible. The aim is to keep downtimes of business-critical systems to a minimum and to make optimal use of synergies.
When merging country-specific systems, it is important to consider country-specific processes as well as to standardize organizational structures such as company codes, controlling areas, plants and sales units.
A carve-out is one of the most complex tasks for an organization. Not only do organizational and procedural changes have to be managed, but removing a business unit from an existing organization is also challenging from a technological point of view. The key question is how existing IT structures should be transferred. Data, systems and processes must be adapted.
