Global SAP consultancy works together with AWS to launch the world's first proof-of-concept for SAP BW/4HANA
LONDON, May 18, 2017 /CNW/ - Bluefin Solutions, a Mindtree company, announced today that it has helped deploy the world's first proof-of-concept for SAP BW/4HANA, enabling offshore drilling company Noble Corp. to drive better data-driven decision making across its business. SAP BW/4HANA is SAP's next-generation data warehouse application for running a real-time digital enterprise. Bluefin, an SAP partner, worked with Amazon Web Services to quickly roll out the proof-of-concept to deliver digital agility and flexibility.
Noble Corp., owns and operates one of the most modern and technically-advanced fleets in the offshore drilling industry and is seeking a more modern data warehousing environment and better informed decision-making capabilities across their entire business. Noble Corp. found that business users wanted faster access to data and improved reporting capabilities to drive smarter business decisions, which its existing database platform was not able to deliver.
Following SAP's recommendation, Noble Corp. partnered with Bluefin Solutions to support them in their digital transformation journey. After gaining a deep understanding of Noble Corp.'s reporting challenges, Bluefin and AWS completed a joint proof-of-concept illustrating the potential of SAP BW/4HANA. They ultimately delivered a 2TB HANA instance in under an hour, allowing the project to kick off without having to wait for hardware to be shipped and racked.
In addition to shrinking its database size from 700GB to 100GB and speeding up backups, Noble Corp. has achieved the following results:
- Employees spend less time running reports and more time on other revenue-generating tasks
- Data modelling can be undertaken without disrupting business as usual
- End users can easily access real-time data without assistance from the IT department
- Users can run increasingly complex reports and gain deeper insight into the business
"There was an urgent need to take stock of where we are, where we want to be and what we need to do to clean house," Mary McLemore, Business Analytics Manager for Noble Corp. said. "Bluefin has helped us to understand this and we are now laying the foundations on which to build and innovate."
"Enterprises today need to ensure seamless, real time access to insightful data. As an enterprise data warehouse tailored for the cloud, SAP BW/4HANA allows businesses to accelerate digital transformation and make themselves agile," said John Appleby, Global Head of Sales at Bluefin. "Noble Corp. is a great example of a company leveraging the cloud to become a data-driven organization. Bluefin has deep and broad experience to help companies realize the potential of the cloud and we were excited by the immediate results this proof-of-concept achieved for Noble Corp."
Bluefin will demonstrate SAP BW/4HANA cloud deployments at SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 16-18 in Orlando, FL.
