Dinkelacker-Schwaben Braeu Taps Into S/4 Hana

Dinkelacker-Schwaben Braeu has successfully moved to SAP S/4 Hana.

Based in the heart of Stuttgart, Germany, the family-owned brewery had been working successfully with an SAP solution for over 20 years. Yet the technology behind the system landscape was no longer up to date. That is why the brewery decided to migrate to S/4 Hana.

Three options were considered for Dinkelacker-Schwaben Braeu’s move to S/4. The greenfield approach was ruled out because the brewery has a large number of in-house developments within the SAP solution. Furthermore, a step-by-step migration involving various pre-projects and sub-projects was not a viable solution for the brewery. The project would have been too long and too expensive.

Instead, the brewery decided to move to S/4 Hana using a one-step approach. This combined several sub-projects while avoiding several long and costly pre-projects. During the transformation project, SNP harmonized the master data, performed all the technical updates, introduced a new chart of accounts and the New General Ledger, completed the move to the Hana database, and introduced S/4. Furthermore, the new SAP system is now Unicode-capable.

The brewery benefited from prepackaged content and standardized procedures, which significantly reduced the project work required for the migration. The project started in February 2020. SNP carried out the transformation project completely remotely and during ongoing business operations. The SAP solution went live on schedule after only 12 months and within budget.
