In collaboration with Capgemini, De Nora began its global launch of the SAP S/4HANA ERP platform with an implementation at its US headquarters to set the foundation for future innovation
Client: De Nora Group
Region: Italy/North America
Sector: Manufacturing & Industrial Products
Client challenge: The De Nora group wanted to begin a global transformation by establishing a digital foundation and chose to identify a new ERP platform as its first step
Solution: Partnering with Capgemini, De Nora introduced the SAP S/4HANA platform at its US headquarters
De Nora is a global supplier of sustainable technologies and preferred partner for the most important industrial electrochemical processes and has been offering water treatment solutions since 1923. Driven by a philosophy based on continuous improvement, De Nora markets highly innovative electrodes, electrochemical systems, and the most advanced filtration and disinfection technologies to solve issues related to the public water/ municipal, marine, industrial wastewater’s treatment.
This kind of work demands a constant push for innovation and excellence, a theme that has lived at the heart of De Nora’s business model for nearly 100 years. As part of this effort, the company decided to update its ERP platform by introducing SAP S/4HANA. Launching this effort with its United States subsidiary, De Nora Water Technologies US, the company planned to integrate and standardize accounting processes across the Group, prepare a solid foundation for even further future innovation, provide access to critical information through mobile devices, and consolidate its infrastructure security. To accomplish all of this, De Nora decided to partner with Capgemini as its implementation partner for the duration of the project.
Following the launch of the implementation, the COVID-19 global pandemic created a substantial hurdle for the partners to overcome. By rapidly transitioning to a fully remote working model, De Nora and Capgemini managed to continue their collaborative progress without significant delays even as the manner in which they operated and communicated had radically changed.
With the rollout of the SAP S/4HANA platform in the United States, De Nora is now poised to introduce the platform on a global scale. This transformation process will soon reach Group locations in Italy, China, Abu Dhabi, and the United Kingdom. This has laid the groundwork for De Nora to pursue further innovations such as inter-functional and multilevel reporting models. By managing to modernize its infrastructure, De Nora has once again displayed its leadership and commitment to an identity built upon innovation.
