Illumiti client Glencore International wins SAP Switzerland’s Gold Quality Award for Innovation

Date: March 23, 2018

Illumiti today announced that its client Glencore International AG is the gold winner of SAP Switzerland’s 2018 Quality Award for Innovation. Each year since 2008, SAP Switzerland has presented quality awards to customers that have achieved excellence in planning and executing implementation projects.

Glencore received the award in recognition for its recent migration of SAP® ERP to SAP S/4HANA® (financials and business intelligence). The producer and marketer of commodities implemented the latest SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) software in 30 countries and at more than 400 of its operations around the world in just 14 months. As a result, it has achieved cost savings and significant improvements in its business processes. Thanks to SAP’s innovative technology, the “near-zero downtime” migration to the new solution took place with almost no interruption to operations.

SAP S/4HANA is a real-time ERP suite for digital business. It is built on an advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA®, and offers a personalized, consumer-grade user experience with SAP Fiori®. Deployable in the cloud or on premise, SAP S/4HANA can drive instant value across all lines of business – no matter the industry or business size.

When selecting the award winners, the judges look for meticulous and high-quality project planning and emphasis on rapid, cost-effective implementation close to the SAP standard. The projects were assessed based on ten SAP quality principles designed to generate business value and support fast time to value.

“Congratulations to the entire team for this exciting award.  We were very happy to have partnered once again with Glencore,” said Larry Perlov, President, Illumiti Consulting AG.  “I’m particularly proud of the team’s collaboration and ‘outside the box’ thinking.  Thank you especially to Wojciech Lukowski, our long-time technical lead, for his leadership on this project.”

By presenting these awards, SAP Switzerland recognizes customers that have attracted interest through excellence in SAP software implementation projects. At the same time, the awards promote the creation of a community of “thought leaders” and strengthen collaboration between customers and partners.

The gold award winners in Switzerland automatically qualify for the regional SAP Quality Award Europe competition. The winners of the European competition will be announced in the first quarter of 2019.
