Steel Company SPS Completes Go-Live On SAP S/4HANA Project


SPS Steel and Pipe Supply, a Kansas-based steel company, has completed go-live on their SAP S/4HANA project in record time. After a 10-month technical project timeline, cbs Corporate Business Solutions America finalized the handover of the productive system back to SPS without any business disruptions.

Through this project, SPS becomes the first company to use Selective Data Transition to migrate selective data and processes from an SAP ECC 6.0 on-premise system into an existing SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud environment based on SAP Best Practices.

Selective Data Transition is a tailored S/4 transformation approach cutting project implementation time.

“What was achieved has never been done before,” says Johannes Semel, Senior Practice Director at cbs America. He continues, “this project proves that Selective Data Transition offers more flexibility to SAP users looking to migrate into the SAP S/4HANA cloud.”

SAP announced the new S/4HANA Cloud, Private Edition in late January.

SPS/4WARD will serve as a major reference point. It will pave the way for hundreds of SAP customers looking to leverage next-generation technologies at the enterprise level by hosting their entire SAP infrastructure in the cloud.
