Leading Multinational Furniture Retailer
The finance systems of our client, a large European furniture retailer, were scattered in individual data stores around the company’s global subsidiaries, making consolidated finance reporting at the group level difficult. As a part of a global digital transformation project, the company’s financial data was to be consolidated in an SAP platform in the cloud.
GCP was introduced as an intermediate platform for data migration to SAP and to make data available outside SAP for analytics and real time processing. We built a data pipeline framework for automated pipeline creation and distributed it to all project teams. Data was consolidated and integrated through different GCP layers using the appropriate as-a-service tools and processed in SAP based on the requirements from the finance department.
Consolidated finances in SAP: real time data ingestion and integration to GCP from 50+ on premise sources and SaaS APIs. Data consolidation, transformation and loading into SAP S/4Hana on MS Azure. Analytics were performed in GCP making financial data available to all departments across the company.
