Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, announces a contract with Melitta North America, a premium coffee company, to transform its existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) environment by implementing SAP’s S/4HANA. Atos will bring its experience on S/4HANA transformation with a focus on industry expertise and Google Cloud Platform. This will enable Melitta to streamline efficiencies and processes, integrate information, especially financial data, to foster growth, and to keep data safe and regulated with built-in protections.
To speed up the transition to SAP S/4HANA and ensure business continuity, Atos will leverage SAP’s Activate methodology, a modular and agile framework based on best practices and guided configuration. The solution will be powered by Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to provide Melitta with all the flexibility and innovation they need. With SAP S/4HANA on GCP as their Digital Core, Melitta will get a real-time view on processes and organizational data, allowing for better forecasting and analysis. By eliminating information silos, Melitta will also reduce distribution issues for better customer satisfaction.
“Atos’ best practices in digital transformation are a perfect fit for transforming our existing systems into a new, agile and more efficient environment that mirrors Melitta’s culture and way of working to innovate in the coffee industry,” said Chris Paul, Manager Information Systems, Melitta North America. “Atos has gone the extra mile in working closely with our local teams, being hands-on with the production line, and understanding the dynamics of our customers.”
“The implementation of SAP S/4HANA will deliver an agile, flexible and best in class ERP environment that harmonizes the production, sales and marketing of Melitta’s coffee products, making them a standout company to do business with and for consumers to buy from,” said Madhu Bala, Vice President and Head of Application Services Business, Atos North America.
“We’re delighted that Melitta has chosen to deploy mission-critical SAP workloads on Google Cloud Platform,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Ecosystem at Google Cloud. “Atos is a global leader in business transformation, and with their expertise in cloud migrations and implementation, Melitta will be able to leverage Google Cloud’s global scale, reliability, and core capabilities in areas like AI, ML and analytics.”
Atos is a launch partner of Google Cloud’s Cloud Acceleration Program which provides solutions and services to help customers execute large-scale migrations of SAP workloads to Google Cloud.
