Neptune Software doubles down on SAP S/4HANA
Oslo, February 3, 2020 – Neptune Software, as a long-standing SAP partner, has chosen to implement SAP S/4HANA as part of a global system integration project, thus extending its partnership with SAP by becoming a customer.
The strategic decision will include a global roll-out of SAP S/4 HANA 1909 across the Neptune corporate locations throughout Norway, the United States, Germany, and the UK to standardize business operations and support rapid growth and market expansion. Designed to simplify business processes, SAP S/4 HANA is an intelligent, integrated ERP system that runs on SAP’s in-memory database, SAP HANA.
Successful go-live with SAP S/4HANA
The implementation, which was completed in less than 3 months, is designed to validate the product-market fit of Neptune DX Platform (DXP) to support organizations’ transitions to SAP S/4 HANA in fragmented, hybrid IT landscapes.
“Implementing SAP S/4HANA was the next logical step for us to deliver on our internal IT requirements and support global growth”, said Njal Stabell, CIO of Neptune Software.
“Needless to say, we opted for our own Neptune DX Platform to provide a unified digital experience that is tailor-fitted to the needs of our employees. Moreover, the effort provides us with valuable real-life insight, deepening our understanding of how to maximize the experience for our customers as they navigate their own journey to take advantage of Neptune DX Platform in combination with an SAP S/4HANA migration.”
Superior digital experience for SAP S/4HANA via Neptune DX Platform
As the number of organizations investing in their own digital transformation journey continues to grow, so do the requirements. This includes the need to address diverse system landscapes and support data interactions with varied backend and cloud systems. Within this environment, APIs are a key facilitator, enabling data federation without requirement investments in long-lasting and expensive integration projects.
Rapid Application Development Platforms (RADs) such as the Neptune DX Platform facilitate this API-based composition and development of custom applications and delivering an omni-channel, digital user experiences. And like Neptune Software itself, a growing number of these organizations are migrating to SAP S/4 HANA and Neptune DX Platform in their mission to provide a superior digital experience for their users.
“Neptune DX Platform was designed to address—and ultimately control—the complexity of developing custom applications fetching data from various backend and cloud systems,” said Ole-André Haugen, CTO of Neptune Software.
“Like many organizations, our own infrastructure capabilities have been developed within hybrid landscapes, such as integrating with Salesforce and Azure Active Directory, and using third-party APIs like the European Bank Currency Conversion service, for example. Our own SAP S/4HANA implementation project imposes the same challenges on us as our customers typically face, while letting our own shine within its natural habitat.”
“While we’ve discovered there’s plenty to be proud of within this digital transformation journey, we’re particularly pleased with the responsiveness of the Neptune Launchpad, which pulls data from various backends and renders them beautifully in record-time,” said Ole-André Haugen.
Moving forward, Neptune will further expand its implementation and demonstrate examples of its efforts at upcoming industry events such as DSAG, SAP SAPPHIRE NOW and the Neptune IMPACT Festival.
