Dickinson + Associates is proud to be the Platinum sponsor at the ASUG Georgia Chapter Meeting in Atlanta, where Brad Hiquet (D+A) and Patrick Osterhaus (Protera Technologies) will present the afternoon keynote, "How to Migrate Your SAP ECC System to S/4 HANA." Join Brad again later for the session "S/4 HANA Implementation at Pregis Innovative Packaging."

Keynote Abstract:

The Keynote session will examine the path to HANA and S/4 and how Dickinson & Associates have simplified SAP HANA and S/4 Migration transition effort and timing. During this presentation you’ll see how NB Coatings has moved to HANA in the cloud with minimal impact to the business while enabling new HANA functionality. Also you’ll see a demo of FlexBridge, a tool to simplify your move to HANA!

Session Abstract:

The session will examine the implementation journey for Pregis Innovative Packaging, LLC to S/4 HANA. Pregis is a leading global provider of innovative protective packaging materials and systems. Pregis is headquartered in Chicago, IL and has fourteen (14) North American locations. The Pregis business evolved over the years, and their business processes had not been re-engineered to accommodate these changes – Pregis processes were silo’d in nature and are not integrated between functions. In several functional areas, knowledge of key processes resided in a few key individuals. There was a strong sense of organizational fatigue and frustration with the legacy processes and systems landscape. • Several “sub-systems” have been created over the years to accommodate business changes which has led to data duplication. To overcome these challenges Pregis selected S/4 HANA as a platform for future growth. Pregis successfully went live on S/4 HANA on January 2, 2016.
