The transition to emerging technologies is dependent on being able to significantly reduce the expenditure on traditional ‘systems of record’ like legacy SAP in order to reinvest the savings in new digital technologies. HCL offers several next generation service offerings designed to help manage and reduce the costs of SAP investments so businesses can focus more of their IT budgets on the digital technology requirements of the future. Our work spans SAP enterprise architecture and design as well as full-service implementation and deployment across technology solutions.
SAP Cost Reduction
HCL offers a number of solutions aimed at helping your organization reduce the cost of your SAP investments.
HCL is a global leader in multi-country SAP deployments, where our proven delivery model helps reduce deployment costs by up to 25 percent compared to most traditional models. By maximizing the use of our offshore Centers of Excellence, we are able to provide localized support and meet your unique business needs.
Running multiple SAP systems, some of which require significant support and maintenance from a company’s own IT department, can be costly and inefficient. Consolidating multiple SAP instances into a single global instance can deliver operational cost reductions of up to 25 to 30 percent. HCL offers a proprietary instance consolidation approach that reviews and realigns existing client and instance strategies to accelerate global consolidation projects, lowering the total cost of ownership and operating risk.
Minimum Viable Product
HCL can help streamline your SAP landscape by gaining a deeper understanding of your SAP minimum viable product – the most efficient, cost-effective SAP landscape possible for your business. We use HCL Insight+™ for SAP solutions to enable us to identify opportunities to consolidate and optimize the current business solution where needed, allowing a reduction of user and maintenance fees, and replace unnecessary customization with standard SAP tools.
HCL’s SAP® S/4HANA Offerings
SAP S/4HANA (SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA) is a new product and the biggest innovation from SAP since SAP® R/3. The next-generation business suite SAP S/4HANA is built on the most advanced in-memory platform today – SAP HANA – with modern design principles and SAP® Fiori user experience (UX).
Organizations across the globe have recognized SAP S/4HANA’s potential as a driver for reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) based on the savings from reduced databases, the speed, simplifications, and consolidation opportunities, and how it can drive significant and immediate benefits to the business.
HCL has developed a value-based program from our in depth analysis of the new technology and the feedback from our clients to make their SAP S/4HANA journey non-disruptive and outcome based.
HCL helps clients migrate to Suite on HANA and SAP S/4HANA to start realizing the initial benefits offered by the speed and simplification that is inherent with the new technology. The migration will then unlock the enablers to allow businesses to realize the real high-value drivers through an agile approach.
HCL’s Agile Benefits Creation (ABC) program has been designed to guide clients through their journey to SAP Business Suite running on SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA. Split into three phases (123) – and incorporating proven tools, methodologies, and expertise - it helps to rapidly maximize the value and benefits clients achieve while ensuring minimum disruption to the business.
Core SAP ERP
HCL’s end-to-end services are designed to help enterprises deploy, implement and upgrade SAP ERP software and associated products. Customers can incorporate ERP systems to achieve their full potential with minimal hassle – allowing them to eliminate complexity, reduce costs and effectively manage and gain visibility of their business and functional operations. We combine proven technologies with our experience across industries from hundreds of engagements to deliver solutions covering all major areas, including SAP CRM, SAP SCM, and SAP PLM.
SAP EAM with iMRO
Large enterprises often struggle to manage their assets effectively. Organizational complexities make it difficult to know how, where and in what to invest, and where risks may exist. Designed to support any industry scenario and any type of asset, HCL’s iMRO solution helps organizations know which assets are performing well and which are not, where investment should occur, and which assets are most critical within the organization.
As product innovation becomes an important differentiator for manufacturers, product lifecycle management becomes critical to gain a competitive advantage in the market. With SAP PLM, HCL helps your organization quickly develop and deliver the products that drive your business while adding value throughout the product development lifecycle.
With increasing budgetary restraints, many supply chain managers are forced to adopt more complex and specialized business processes, which stretch internal competencies and make further benefits harder to identify. With SAP SCM, HCL applies an assessment methodology to help identify where real improvement opportunities exist, replacing reliance on generic benchmark data to deliver highly targeted and meaningful results.
