Accenture worked closely with Cargill to build a migration solution based on SAP Data Services keeping aligned with business transformation goals.
Cargill’s Tartan project is implementing an SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to standardize business processes, increase efficiency, improve management decision making and drive growth.
Accenture is helping deploy the global system across geographies and business units. As part of this deployment, data from hundreds of legacy systems needs to be transferred into the ERP system, providing one version of company data and increasing visibility into operating performance.
By leveraging the Accenture Advanced Enterprise Solution (AAES), Cargill and Accenture are linking industry-leading processes to the SAP technology to support Cargill with the critical tasks of obtaining the right data and migrating, cleansing and harmonizing it.
To drive its business transformation program aimed at increasing efficiency and agility and driving growth in the global marketplace, the company is replacing hundreds of legacy systems with a single SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
But Cargill faced budget constraints and the complex task of migrating data from so many legacy systems into one ERP solution. The company needed an approach that would help simplify the data migration process, meet its tight delivery deadlines and reduce associated costs.
Cargill collaborated with Accenture to get the delivery resources, skills and tools it required to successfully complete the data migration on time and within budget—and stay aligned with its broader business transformation goals.
The teams decreased the anticipated time to convert and migrate the data using Accenture’s Global Delivery Network, industrialized delivery methodology and the following methods:
Accenture collaborated with Cargill to develop a solution that met the immediate needs of Cargill, lowering its delivery costs while providing a data migration “starter kit” for future deployments of its global ERP solution with flexibility to customize and scale.
With Accenture’s assistance in providing data migration tools and services, Cargill has achieved reduced costs and time and greater agility.
